From the manufacturer
Carhartt is much more than a maker of workwear. We?re a family. Founded by Hamilton Carhartt in 1889-proudly owned and operated by the same bloodline ever since. We honor the shared values of hard work: dependability, honesty, and trust. We are committed to supporting organizations that ensure this generation partners with the next to build an even better future. We believe our actions must always speak louder than our words, because we are worn by the hardest-working people of them all.
The year 1889 was a time of steel, steam, and locomotives. It was also when Hamilton Carhartt was founded by its namesake (known affectionately as ?Ham?) and began producing overalls with two sewing machines and a half-horsepower electric motor in a small Detroit loft. Early failures led Hamilton to focus heavily on market research, and after talking directly with railroad workers, he designed a product that truly fit their needs. Under the motto ?Honest value for an honest dollar,? the Carhartt bib overall was created and rapidly evolved into the standard for quality workwear.
Carhartt developed Wedge work boots to combine the popularity of wedge style work boots with improved comfort and durability that Carhartt builds into every product. Iconic boots for time-honored work. The upper is made with a high grade oil tanned leather and the dual density Carhartt rubber outsole provides full ground contact, improved cushion comfort and the durability of Goodyear welt contruction. Pull-on Chelsea version gives you the same functionality as our traditional wedge work boot but with a smooth clean upper and easy access.
