The outer rubber sole will aid in any terrain you might encounter along the way. It’s Canadian-made with domestic and imported materials that will insure you a dry comfortable fit.

SAFETY 

The Kamik Workday2 boots have a CSA and ASTM-approved steel toecap. They are resistant to oil, acid, and a variety of other chemicals, so you can wear them in different conditions. They also offer good traction, even in wet and icy conditions.

COMFORT

The boots have a removable Thermal Guard liner that serves two purposes: the two-layer system wicks away moisture from the skin, and also locks in body heat, keeping your feet warm and dry even when they’re sweating. Because the liner is removable, it’s also easier to dry it out when you’re done wearing the boots.The boots also have an adjustable nylon collar, which helps to keep the snow and ice out, and the heat in.

CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY

The RubberHe material that the boots are made from is 100% recyclable, and the Kamik company is committed to sustainable manufacturing, minimizing waste, and producing many of its products in North America, contributing to fewer emissions due to international freight and shipping.

WHAT WEARERS THINK

Overall, the reviews for the Kamik Workday2 boots are pretty positive. They’re basically an all-around great boot for all weather conditions however they excel in the winter and colder climates. They have a removable liner that can be replaced over time. They are pretty light and flexible to wear all day long. They don’t have the best ankle or arch support, but this can be improved by adding a good boot insole. This will make all the difference, just be sure to you find one that works best for you.

These insulated boots will keep your feet dry and warm. The nylon collar is a great feature, as it prevents water, snow, and ice from making its way inside the boot. This is definitely a great feature of Kamik Workday2 boots. The style of the boot also makes it easy to put on and take off, without having to use your hands.

The traction for this boot is great – it helps keep a good grip in snow and ice, but still is soft enough to keep the boot lightweight.

When picking a size, you’ll need to consider what kind of socks you’ll be wearing, how many sock layers, and if you’ll be using any extra insoles. All these factors will affect the fit of the boots. For example, you may need to go up a size if you’ll be wearing two pairs of socks and an extra insole. Many wearers say that the boots fit a bit big, so be careful about buying them too big, because this could cause play and shifting around the ankle, which can cause irritation, annoyance, or at the worst, chafing. If you’re not going to wear thick sock layers or add an insole, you might want to order to your true size or even go down a half-size.

I personally have used these boots on construction sites without any issues. They will keep your feet dry and toasty all day. Just be careful as to what you walk on so they don’t puncture and leak. I recommend taking the liners out after daily use and dry them so they are ready for the next day.

IN CONCLUSION


It’s important to remember that the Kamik Workday2 boots are not designed to fit like a traditional work boot or shoe – they’re really are a rubber boot. But if you’re looking for a durable, light-weight, safety-rated rubber boot with good traction, and that will keep your feet warm, dry, and toasty, the Kamik Workday2 boots is a great, cost-effective choice.

Here’s a summary of the best features of the Kamik Workday2 boots:
