Bottom line

  • The Woodridge blurs the divide between a lifestyle shoe and a hiker. It offers an athletic kind of performance in the expansive outdoors, whether on or off the trail.
  • Harley-Davidson engineers opted to give this gear a cemented construction. They “cemented” the boot’s upper securely to the sole unit with the use of a special kind of adhesive, granting the lightweight boot enhanced sturdiness as a result.

The Harley-Davidson Woodridge is an adequately true-to-size, mid-cut day hiker specifically designed for men. It comes in full and half sizes in standard width. Its ghillie-style lacing system gives wearers a snug and secure fit.

This men’s day hiking gear from Harley-Davidson has a long-wearing outsole made entirely of rubber. Wearers are promised the right amount of surface traction over unpredictable terrain with its aggressively grooved zones and multi-directional lugs.

The Woodridge is capable of giving hikers a stable and well-protected ride thanks to its thick yet cushy midsole. It is engineered considerably stout at the heel to mitigate shock upon every landing.

Complementing the midsole in providing underfoot comforting is the boot’s default footbed. This removable sockliner has a fabric top layer to prevent underfoot slippage and a cupped heel for added support.

The material mainly constituting the Harley-Davidson Woodridge’s mesh-lined upper is leather. It is of a waterproof sort, rendering the boot capable of keeping most types of watery elements fenced out. The upper’s rear and front ends (its heel and forefoot tip) are built with a sturdy covering which further strengthens the footgear and improves its defenses against wear and tear.

Its front closure uses a synthetic lace. It is rounded out with combination eyelets which are made up of fabric loops at the instep and plated lace holes at the top.

  • This H-D boot also comes in a version that is engineered with an ASTM-compliant composite toe. ATSM stands for American Society for Testing and Materials.
