The Carhartt brand is famous for its clothing lines. You can vouch for the jackets or hoodies without worrying about it. Nevertheless, the company also produces work shoes in amazing quality. The Safety Toe NWP line is the way to go for full-time employment of steel toe shoes for less than $ 100.
The quality and construction of the NWP model is what you can expect from Carhartt in this mid price range. These have been designed with security concerns in mind to help you survive even in hostile work environments. The connection between outsole and upper material is a bone construction that ensures a durable connection and long-term performance.
The oil-tanned upper is made of leather. Although it is crazy horse material (not real leather), it probably lingers well in less than ideal conditions. The hardware is made of metal and gives the shoes a masculine look in combination with the double and triple seams.
The boots have a padded collar and comfort tongue for a reduced break-in period and provide cushion-like padding around the ankles. The lace closure and Speed-Lace rivets on top provide a better fit and keep your feet secure inside.
Your feet do not feel stifled thanks to FastDry technology. Moisture-wicking lining keeps sweat away and keeps feet dry all day long.
The polyurethane Strobel Pads with PU cushion insole provide a pillow-like feel underfoot. These also absorb the effects of walking or running on hard or uneven terrain.
The steel toe keeps you from an unpleasant impact on an object. The shoes also meet ASTM standards to provide secondary protection against electrical breakdowns. In dry conditions, these can withstand a maximum of 18,000 volts. These are well prepared for most working conditions.
In addition, the rubber outsole has a reinforced steel shaft, which supports the bow so that it supports the impact as much as possible. In addition, the ladder barrier handles and the open mud-free lugs on the underside of the sole have further expanded their functionality. Climbers can also use the footwear because the 90-degree heel is perfect for the job.
