Let’s dive into what makes the Carson a top contender in the world of work boots:

  • Comfort is king with the Carson. The boot boasts an extra depth design, giving your feet plenty of room to breathe. The removable contoured insole with rebound foam cradles your feet, providing support and cushioning with every step. Plus, the suede tongue and padded comfort collar add an extra layer of coziness.
  • Safety is paramount in any work environment, and the Carson delivers. The composite toe version meets all the necessary ASTM safety standards, keeping your toes protected from potential hazards. The outsoles are both slip-resistant and oil-resistant, ensuring excellent traction on even the slipperiest surfaces. Some versions also offer electrical hazard resistance for added peace of mind.
  • Durability is a must in a work boot, and the Carson is built to last. The uppers are crafted from full-grain tumbled leather, known for its strength and resilience. An abrasion-resistant panel on the heel provides extra protection in high-wear areas.

Sizes For All Feet

One of the standout features of the Carson is its incredible size range. Available in sizes 7-18 and wider widths from D to 6E, this boot accommodates a wide variety of foot shapes and sizes. And if you don’t need the added protection of a safety toe, the Carson also comes in a soft toe version.

    • The full-grain leather upper provide long-lasting wear.
  • Flexibility: Without the added rigidity of a safety toe, the Carson Soft Toe might offer more flexibility for movement compared to the composite toe version.
  • Wider Range of Applications: Since a safety toe is not present, the Carson Soft Toe could be suitable for various work environments where heavy-duty protection might not be required.
  • Wide Size Availability: The Carson Soft Toe comes in a variety of sizes (7-18) and widths (D to 6E) to accommodate different foot shapes and sizes.
  • Potentially Lighter Weight: The absence of a safety toe makes the boot lighter than the composite toe version, reducing fatigue during extended wear.
  • Limited Protection: Without a safety toe, the Carson Soft Toe offers no protection against falling objects or impact hazards.
  • Break-in Period: Like most leather work boots, the Carson Soft Toe might require some break-in time before becoming fully comfortable.
