Boot Word of The Day: Shank
The portion of the boot that is used as reinforcement for the wearer's arch. Most boot makers today use a thin, pre-cut strip of eighteen-gauge steel, which is glued, whip stitch, or tacked in place.
A very important but hardly talked about part of the boot the shank. It is more important than most people think. It supports the arch which is a large section of the foot. It's something that's key to to foot comfort in boots and is also one of the most talked about in insoles such as #drscholls
A supportive arch can make the difference between easy wear and wearable for a long time #footwear
versus footwear you'll have to take off relatively soon after you put it on.
