Why You Need A Pair Of Carhartt Work Boots

If you had to purchase one pair of boots for the rest of your life, Carhartt work boots would be an extremely wise choice. Seriously, if a pair of boots could be a super hero, Carhartt work boots would totally qualify as such.

Carhartt has been in existence since 1889. They have a long history of American-made products. Carhartt was founded on the value of giving people a quality product for an honest price.

“I believe that when a man wears an article that I manufacture, his self-respect is increased because he knows that it is made by an honest manufacturer, who is honest with his employees.”

-Hamilton Carhartt

This mission has stayed with the company to this day. This has resulted in a booming business with loyal customers who swear by the Carhartt name.

What started as a company that manufactured union-made bib overalls has now grown into a business that provides a wide variety of outdoor equipment. One of their most popular lines is their men’s work boots that truly are an incredibly well made product.

Why Carhartt?

Other than the reasons I’ve just told you (which, shouldn’t that be enough?), there’s even more reasons to buy a pair of Carhartt boots. They’re known for their quality and excellent fit. If you’re looking for a pair of insulated work boots, work-tough hiker style, loggers, or lower cut boots, there’s something for everyone.

Carhartt isn’t afraid of making boots that their customers can be rough with. They know your job demands a lot of you, and you need a pair of boots that keeps up with those demands. Their rugged soles, high-quality leather uppers and waterproof boot liners make these boots a favorite for many working men.

If you’re going to be working on a wet, muddy job site you can count on the Carhartt CMP1259. They’ll keep your feet dry and out of the mud.

As far as insulation is concerned, these will keep your feet dry on a chilly day. However, they aren’t designed to be used in the snow. If you need an actual snow boot, this wouldn’t be a great choice though Carhartt has other great options that would work!

The boots are light-weight, making them perfect for all-day wear. So many steel toe boots are extremely heavy and make your feet hurt after a few hours. You won’t experience that with these boots. They’re extremely popular on off-shore oil rigs that require long hours. They’ll protect your feet from a wide variety of chemicals and substances like salt, diesel and oil. The boots will withstand all of it, protecting your feet from things that could be harmful to them.

You don’t have to take my word for it though. Try a pair of these boots yourself and see what you think. It’s important to love the boots you’re wearing all day every day. These boots mold to your feet and once you’ve got them broken in you’ll love wearing them every day!

Columbia Boots: The Indoor-Outdoor Boot for all Men (Part 1 of 2)

“It’s perfect, now make it better.” This is the line the makers of Columbia boots were told by their mother, Gert Boyle who has been the Chairman of Columbia products for over 40 years. The Boyle family was born and raised in the Pacific northwest. They spent hours outside in the elements, exploring the coast and all of the rugged beauty it has to offer. What began as a small hat business has grown into what we know Columbia to be today: an outdoor apparel mega brand. Columbia products are well made, warm, and built to withstand whatever the elements throw your way. That’s the Columbia promise, and they’ve been around for 70 years to prove their worth.

Columbia Boots

Columbia boots are known for their ability to keep your feet blister-free, warm and cozy even on the coldest of days. I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty great to me. One of their biggest selling features is that their mens boots are perfect for easily moving from indoor to outdoor wear while still looking appropriate. We have a few favorite models that we’re really excited to tell you about!

My fiance hates to take his shoes off inside the house (weird, I know). However, many of his work boots are clunky and uncomfortable for him to wear once he’s inside. These [easyazon_link identifier=”B00KWK8SJS” locale=”US” tag=”workbootcri09-20″]Columbia Men’s Newton Ridge Plus boots[/easyazon_link] are exactly what he wanted: an easy boot to transition from outdoor to indoor.

These boots have a rubber sole to keep your feet dry in the rain. They feature a leather upper with a mesh tongue so your feet can breathe as you work or play. They’re easy to lace up and the 5″ shaft gives excellent ankle support. Designed for the hiking trail, these boots have the traction and grip you need whether you’re actually hiking or working outdoors. The traction on these boots is designed to repel mud. You won’t end up at the end of the day having to pick the mud out of your boots with a stick. I have way too many childhood memories of doing that!

One of the best features of this boot, beyond the all-over leather which keeps your feet nice and dry, is the supportive arch. It’s comfortable, padded, and the perfect height for all-day wear. They’re light weight, not weighing much more than your average running shoe. This is pretty unheard of for a hiking boot!

When determining what size to order, be sure to consider what kind of socks you’ll be wearing. If you’re going for thick hiking socks, you might want to order a half-size up as these boots are designed to fit snug. If you think you’ll just wear normal thickness socks, you should be fine with the shoe size you typically wear.

All-Weather Boots

These boots are truly designed to take you wherever you need to go. They’re popular on construction sites and other outdoor jobs because of their reliability. The price is great too, as it’ll only run you $60-$90.00 depending on what size and color you order. Not bad at all for a boot that’ll last you a long time.

If you’re looking for a boot that wears like a shoe, this is the one for you! There’s just so many things to love about it, and this isn’t the only boot we love. There’s so many great Columbia boots that we couldn’t limit ourselves to just this post. We’re coming back next time to give you a couple more reviews of amazing Columbia footwear.
