Find some footwear that works as hard as you with Hard Yakka boots from eBay

The Hard Yakka brand is synonymous with quality, toughness and durability. Born in the 1930s by David K. Laidlaw, the word yakka in Hard Yakka is derived from the Aboriginal term which means work. It started as a small clothing company in Brunswick, Victoria, and not long after narrowed down its focus into work wear. And in the 1990s, the company introduced an impressive range of safety and non-safety footwear that carries the Hard Yakka brand.

Hard Yakka work boots for men range from different styles of zip up, Boa fit system, lace up, pull on and sports. They also come in different colours such as black, black and yellow, claret, grey, grey and orange, navy, oak, olive, sand and wheat. Whether you’re looking for a pair of boots for work or just for everyday wear, with Hard Yakka boots for men, you'll be getting a piece from a brand known for its quality, craftsmanship and durability.

Legendary leather

What makes Hard Yakka footwear and work boots worth your money? It’s in the leather, specifically the upper leather, which is specifically suited to stand up to industrial safety standards. The softness and absorbency of leather helps control temperature for feet comfort especially in an industrial environment. Leather also has the ability to breathe through numerous pores which allows perspiration to diffuse while restricting the entry of other liquid such as water.

Hard Yakka uses full-grain leather, kip leather, Nubuck leather, suede leather and rambler leather among others on its foot wear especially boots. Full-grain leather and kip leather are made from cow hides while Nubuck leather and suede leather are made from cattle hides. Full-grain leather is considered to be the best quality while suede is the least durable among other leather types. Rambler leather on the other hand is created by applying a pigmented finish to the surface of the leather. Regardless of leather, Hard Yakka ensures that all their boots meet the 2.2mm thickness requirement for durability.

When it comes to men's boots, you want something that is going to be able to keep up with you and your hard-working lifestyle. eBay's collection of Hard Yakka boots can do just that.
