I purchased this boot with the intention of durability, quality, and craftsmanship for my new merchandising position at COSTCO. I was looking for a good steel toe boot from a quality company and as always Carhartt and Dungarees.net did not let me down.
The boots arrived and were beautiful. I was a little leery of the sizing online so I ordered the 10W as my foot tends to be on the wide side. I was also concerned the weight of the boot might be a bit much, but they are surprisingly light.
I slipped the boots on and thought I had just put on my bed slippers. These things were so comfortable out of the box I was shocked. The ankle support was a little stiff but I was sure that after a couple of full days on the warehouse floor would take care of the stiffness, I was correct in that assumption. After about 1 week of wear these boots were formed to my feet and ankles.
I have had the boots for about 60 days now and the non-slip soles work great on the floor. The toes have held up well considering all the pallets and steel I kick throughout the day. The waterproof label on the outside is 100% accurate. Water will bead up on the outside, eventually will soak in but never to the point where your socks are wet.
The only negative thing is the boots can get warm, but for those cold winter days they are perfect. I would highly recommend these boots for use in the fields, farm, construction, and any other outdoor work environment you can think of!!!
As usual the Dungarees.net company came through with fast, timely, and reliable service with the order and delivery of the product. I can't say enough about this company and have recommended everyone I know who loves Carhartt to look at their site!
I have also included a recent picture of how well the boots have held up in their first 60 days of rigorous use.
