Forced Purchase for Work......
By: Tony
I was forced to buy Lineman boots back in 2004 due to job requirement. Since then I have gotten away from line work, but still have the boots. I wore them for about 6 months before my job changed and didn't need them. They have been sitting in my basement most of the time for the last 7 years and are still sport the supple leather upper.

These boots are the most comfortable boots I own for doing tower climbing as my hobby. The steel shank really supports my high arched foot as I ascend, work at height and descend. I refuse to go up a tower without my Carolina Lineman Boots and a climbing belt. That's how much I love these boots.

This is an excellent boot. Took a bit...
By: mike
This is an excellent boot. Took a bit to break in though. Would be great if it had relief notches in the eyelet row to help prevent pinching. Good height, good sole, and an EH rating of 14,400 V. I would definitely recomend it.

Wanted to gives these a try for motorcycling....
By: Joe
Wanted to gives these a try for motorcycling. Fast delivery and perfect fit. Not your usually logger where the toe has a hard time getting under the shifter. They're not as high in the front and the ability to go from the peg to under the shifter is perfect. Glad I gave your company a shot.

Good Quality...
By: Tone
Good quality. I'm really impressed by the quality of materials in these boots, the uppers, the sole, the shank. I noticed a few MINOR errors in the build (the stitching missed the seam on an insignificant portion of the boot and some loose ends on the stitching through the sole) but nothing that would keep me from recommending these boots. Sizing is in line with similar steel toe red wings and Corcorans that I own. This is some THICK leather, presumably to prevent splinters when climbing poles. I don't climb poles; I'm a diesel mechanic and wear these as a general work boot. They really stabilize my ankles well. The soles don't trap much mud or snow. Overall boots are much better than I expected for the price. As a bonus, no blisters or hot spots as I was breaking them in, maybe I got lucky, or maybe the fit is just that good. Also comfortable for long shifts and not bad looking. As with any work boots, I recommend only wearing them every other day. I wish I would have had these during my time in the infantry.

great boot...
By: lineman
Carolina makes a wonderful boot for the money. These are not no wescos or any other top brands. But for the price these boots are comfy. I only wish they made them in a brown because my socks get stained and black is hot. Much better than redwings and american made by union members. Gel inside and a poly insert footbed makes a comfy boot. For a true pole climber they could be a tad stiffer but unless you're in the air on hooks for over 3 hrs at a time you'll be good. Perfect for apprentices looking to get a boot to get started and save some cash for all the other tools they will need.

excellent boots...
By: daniel
Bought the Carolina's steel toe 1905 USA Made model first because they looked really cool and after doing research about them i decided these were the boots i wanted and needed for my job. I'm in the telecomm field where I'm sometimes in areas where i need to use gaffs to climb the telephone pole. I've been wearing them for a couple of weeks now and they are just perfect, they feel comfortable they look nice i still haven't had the opportunity to put climbers on them. but from what I've research i don't think I'm gonna have any problems. i would recommend these boots.

For work...
By: Lisa Wilken
I bought them for my husband for his job since he has to have steel toes and shanks for his work, he prefers a taller boot so it was perfect for him. When they arrived he couldn't try them on fast enough, he's had them about a month now and just loves them.

Excellent Quality and Comfort!...
By: James
Excellent Quality and Comfort! Fit is true to size. These look great also. I work in these and also ride my Harley with them. I applied waterproofing treatment to these and now can even wear them in a driving rain!

Horrible Twice...
By: Ken
Stiching fell out of first pair in 3 days never even oiled them. Stiching fell out of second pair in two weeks polished lightly once. Working Persons store is helpful, but Carolina Boots are very, very poorly made. If ZERO stars were an option thats what these shoes would have received. STAY AWAY!

Best Boots I have ever had...
By: Henry Thomas
Carolina boots are the best boots I have ever had. These 1905's are without a doubt the finest boots I have ever had. The pair that I am wearing now I purchased 7 or eight years ago and I am going to buy another pair of 1905's this year to replace them. Over the years I have purchased various brands of boots that do not stand up to the environment or working conditions that I work in. Wolverines/Rockies/Justin/Red Wing none stand up to my everyday work that these 1905's have.

Not impressed...
By: John Tierney
The order somehow was lost #1. When I received the boots the leather on the toe was not sewn into the sole for about 3/4 of an inch #2. Then I ordered a size 10 D which is the size of the pair I already own and they were so tight my feet cramped up after only seconds of wearing them. So I'm mildly disappointed with the boots this time around.
