Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of the Nunn Bush Littleton boots is made out of rubber, using LITES technology, making them super light to ensure the boots themselves stay lightweight. They are created out of millions of little air bubbles which make the rubber compound as light as possible while still giving you a great deal of durability so you will not have to worry about them wearing down on you too quickly. They are going to offer you a decent amount of traction which is important. You do not want to have to worry about being on the go and slipping unexpectedly because your boots could not keep their grip.

You should keep in mind, however, that these are more of a casual pair of boots and as such might not be the best choice if you are going to to be doing a lot of walking through the woods or hitting the trails. They can offer you a decent amount of protection thanks to the rubber outsole, but they are not going to provide you with enough to keep you safe and comfortable if you go off the beaten path with them.
Midsole

Midsole

The midsole of the Nunn Bush Littleton boots is amazing and customers just love it. They offer amazing underfoot cushioning that will keep your feet happy and comfortable all day long. The midsole is made out of lightweight and durable EVA foam, but that is not all. You will also have the pleasure of extra comfort thanks to the Memory Foam footbed. What is better than comfortable foam underfoot? Why, more foam of course!

You will also get the added bonus of being able to take advantage of Nunn Bush's Smartscent technology integrated into the antimicrobial lining of the boots. This is going to help ensure you do not have any unwanted odor, either in your shoes or on your feet. Not only will it help eliminate smells, but it can also help keep your feet healthy which is always a bonus.
Upper

Upper

The Nunn Bush Littleton boots are considered to be Chukka boots which means that they are about ankle length. In the case of these particular boots, they have an upper that is made out of casual leather with a classic rubber outsole. These boots are also going to feature the traditional three-eyelet lacing system that you would expect from other similar products. Finishing up the look of the uppers is a rounded plain toe.

The upper so of these boots are meant to give you all-day comfort with additional support and they do a pretty good job at delivering on that. Customers love the look and feel of these boots when they are wearing them.
Durability

Durability

Durability is important when you are looking into purchasing a new pair of boots. You are going to want to find something that is going to last you a while and not suffer from premature wear and tear. No need to worry about having to replace the Nunn Bush Littleton boots any times soon, as they are designed to last. After months of wear, customers commented that the cushioning of the midsole still feels like brand new, still giving them the all-day comfort they got right out of the box. The rubber soles are also made to withstands your repeated steps and all-day wear without wearing down quickly.

One small complaint that customers had was they the uppers seemed to scuff rather easily which can get rather frustrating. Although, you can clean them and they will look good as new. This does not cause any damage to the actual boots so they will not need to be replaced because of this, but it is something that you might want to keep in mind.
Comfort

Comfort

One of the things customers love most about the Nunn Bush Littleton boots is how comfortable they feel on their feet. Right out of the box, no need to break them in, you will get a long lasting comforter that you will love. Some customers stated that they work long hours on their feet, sometimes standing for four to six hours at a time, and these boots are their best friends, keeping their feet pleasantly happy throughout their shifts.

Whether you are going to be standing in place for hours at a time or you have to do a lot of walking, these shoes are going to give you the comfort that you need. Some reviewers stated that after walking super long distances the cushioning was still great and their feet thanked them for it.

One small complaint about the comfort level of the boots comes from sizing. If you have wide feet then these might not be the best option for you, as they do not allow for a lot of wiggle room or stretch for your feet to squeeze comfortable inside of them. The lacing system prooves to make it difficult for those out there with wide feet. Other than the width, though, these do fit true to size so you should not have too much of an issue when it comes to deciding what size you are going to need. If you are unsure you can consult the sizing chart that they provide online. Getting the correct size is key when getting the most out of your comfort, so if you are unsure what size you really should take a quick peek at the chart.
Breathability

Breathability

Breathability is important when you are wearing shoes, you need to make sure that your feet are not going to overheat due to the lack of airflow through the foot chamber. That being said, the Nunn Bush Littleton boots will give you a little bit of ventilation that will assist in keeping your feet cool. Of course, you are not going to get the kind of breathability that you would from a pair of mesh running sneakers, but for a pair of leather boots, they do a good enough job.

In addition to being able to give you some ventilation to help prevent you from getting too hot and your feet sweat, they also offer an antimicrobial lining to help prevent certain bacteria caused by the warmer environment, as well as help reduce foot odor. Your friends and family will thank you for that when you take your boots off after a long day of work.
Support

Support

When it comes to your boots you are going to want something that will give you a decent amount of security and support while you are wearing them. You are in luck, the Nunn Bush Littleton Chukka boots offer you a decent amount of support thanks to the cushioned midsole and additional insole. They are going to give you pretty good arch support which customers can appreciate, especially if they are on their feet all day. Even though it is generally unnecessary, there are a few who prefer to take out the existing insole and replace it with one of their own for even better support and comfort.

Something that you may want to note is that these boots are made more for those out there with a neutral gait so if you are one of the thousands of people in the world that have problems with overpronation or supination then these are not going to the best option for you.

The snug and secure fit of these boots also help give you a more supportive experience. You can rest easy knowing that your feet are not going to slip and slide around inside of your shoes, potentially causing you to fall and injure yourself. The lacing system combined with the already foot-hugging upper ensures that you are going to be locked into place all day long.
Protection

You are going to have a decent amount of underfoot protection, no need to worry about stepping on any sharp and abrasive objects while you are on your travels, the soles will keep the bottoms of your feet safe.

The EVA foam midsole with the additional insole offers you a decent amount of cushioning which is used for more than just comfort. This is also going to provide you with some shock absorption. With each step you take, the impact of your step will sink into and be absorbed by the padding, helping reduce the risk of joint pain or injury.

Weight

Weight

Boots can be expected to weight more than your typical running shoe, they are bulkier and offer a lot more in the way of protection and support. That being said, the Nunn Bush Littleton boots actually weigh a little less than you might expect, especially when compared to some of the other Chukka boots on the market. It is great because you will not have to worry about feeling like someone attached weights to the bottoms of your feet while you are out and about. The air bubble design of the outsole is a big proponent in keeping the weight of these down, giving you a great quality sole without all the additional weight.

On average, for a size 8.5 W (EE), these boots weight in at 12 ounces each. That may seem like a lot, and when compared to sneakers it is, but for boots that is a relatively good and low number. Customers have had no complaints when it comes to how heavy these boots are.
