AT34000 Kayo Chainsaw Boot - Purple
We like a challenge at Arbortec - we wanted to produce a chainsaw boot unlike any other. A boot that will combine everything an arborist needs in one efficient package.
The Kayo boots are a new generation of technical chainsaw boots designed to be the perfect footwear suitable for work in a variety of settings.
The key features of this boot are its shape and height. The low-cut style includes a chainsaw-protected gator and tongue, tailored perfectly for the professional chainsaw user.
The upper body of the boot is handcrafted using premium leathers, laminated with chainsaw protective materials and a waterproof membrane. Our signature BreatheDry system ensures the boots are waterproof and highly breathable making the working day more comfortable. To enhance durability, the Kayo has a rubber randing wrapped around the lower half of the boot.
The unique lacing system and secure inner sock give the user a snug and comfortable fit for a wide or narrow foot. It will also prevent any detritus from entering the boot.
The Vibram rubber lug sole ensures you will be sure-footed in all conditions.

- EN ISO 17249 Class 2 Protection
I think these are very nice boots. I love the look of them and the soles grip very well for navigating the canopy vertically and laterally. They are comfortable on the ground but that is slightly compromised by the presence of the chainsaw protection. But that could be a fair trade for the added safety. They are a sort of pain to pull on, but again, a good trade off for the safety and there’s no sawdust getting inside. I’m confused a little by the tongue. I wish the laces went up a little higher to keep it in place, as it is it tends to hang forward a bit. Not really a problem and the Velcro does help keep it in position, but it looks a little funny and can definitely catch debris. Overall, awesome boots, I’d probably buy them again.
The boot feels great it's just that it's a bit difficult to put them on and then in the cold i would of thought the insulation was better but my feet get cold all the time but apart from that they're good.
I'm very excited about these boots. I haven't really had time to put them to the test yet, but they have everything I'm looking for in a boot. If they perform like the other Arbortec products I've had in the past, then there's no chance I'll be disappointed.
A few things to note: they do seem to run a bit large, and they are a difficult to get your foot in them when they're new, but I think that will get better with time.
