Cheaply made
Wore these for a little over 3 months and the entire back of the boot where it is stitched ripped out on both boots at the exact same time. Didn’t even last a whole winter. Extremely dissatisfied!
    Carhart Ground Force
    Great boot so far. Keeps my feet dry through reasonable depth of snow and standing water and hard rain. Safety toe was nice during colder days in regards yo warmth vs steel toe. Came with decent laces for holding up to abrasion and sparks from welding and grinding. Sizes are as expected.
      Great But really messed my heel up do to the rough materials
      I really like these boots actually but the material for the heel is way to rough to the point where i had to switch them cause i walk for 8 hours a day. i havent worn them cause of the damaged it caused to my heel but in time i do want to wear them again
        Wide opening, little protection, poor design
        I have wide feet and my foot fits well with half inch more space for toes. However, the top of the boot flares open, about 1 1/4" in the back leaving a giant gap where snow, pebbles, debris, etc or cold air to fall into your boot. This wide opening makes it easy to put boots on and off, but doesn't offer the protection I want for my feet. Extremely disappointing considering Carhartt only has a few Insulted boots and these are gapped around the leg and allows the elements in anyway. I'm assuming whoever designed these only ever put boots on an off and never wore them in the outdoors.
          Stitching coming undone after a couple of days
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this boots a few days ago they look really nice feel also real nice but my issue after using them a few days at work I’m a stone mason the the stitching is started to come undone on once side of the boot
            I usually wear 8 1/2 wide, but these boots seem...
            I usually wear 8 1/2 wide, but these boots seem to be too tight and I cannot lace them all the way because the right boot is pinching my ankle.

            Best boots yet!
            So far after one week they feel great with no long term breaking in routine. Compared to my old pair, these are an upgrade in comfort, safety and look. I highly recommend if you are on your feet all day and need protection.
              Just need a strap in the back to give a gripe to put on the boot
                Love the Boots
                Bought them for our grandson for his work in construction. Live in Post Falls, Idaho. His feet stayed warm and dry in this cold weather in December and January. The first day he wore them he said his feet did not hurt, like most boots do the first day.
                  Pretty great
                  I work outdoors about 12 hours a day, from rain to sun and snow. I bought these to use as my winter boots and I'm so glad I did. I owned a pair of cathartt before and they were the best boots I've ever owned, these have to be right up there. They are 100% waterproof so far and have very strong soles to them. As I expected it took a week to go through the normal break in period, the heel supports were the worst part but after a week, I have to say I couldn't be happier
