Carolina comfort !...
By: Michael
After owning my first pair of Carolina boots, the CA5821 work boot, I was hooked. All day comfort, waterproof, protective and supportive. Plus they looked killer when new. Oh that Crazy horse color.

Fast forward to needing a new spring/summer boot. I'm just as happy with these boots as I was with Carolina's work boot. 2 years as my "winter work boot", the CA5821, pleased my feet each day, be it 10 or 14 hours long. I'm hoping the CA5520 does as well over it's Summer duties.

carolina clouds...
By: unclebill
I have purchased about 6 pairs of the Carolina broad toe composite boots and dont think I will switch to another brand or style again! As a farm worker I am constantly climbing standing and working on my feet all day long. By the end of the day I am not fatigued and still feel like im walking on clouds. Being waterproof is another great thing about them. Do yourself a favor and try a pair of these Carolina boots on.

By: Frank
I go hiking with my family about twice a week and I love these Carolina hiking boots. Now I can actually keep up with everyone and I don't have to stop because my feet hurt. I am sure I will be buying more of these.

Carolina not only makes great work boots...
By: Jerry H.
Carolina not only makes great work boots but they make the best pair of hiking boots. I have had these boots for about a year now and I hike about twice a week and wear them everywhere I go. And they are in perfect shape still.

Second purchase of these boots - a Great Product...
By: JR
Another website rated these boots the most comfortable boots of their kind. I had worn my previous pair for three years and now just bought an identical pair to replace them, As a I said this is a great product!!

5520 GREAT boot...
By: Matt
I bought a pair of the Carolina 5520 (work required all the features this boot has) a little over two years ago wearing them everyday for 10 to 18 hours a day, they are even more comfortable than my much newer shoes and my feet have NEVER been sore ,and the reason I'm buying the same again. after two years of harsh abuse they are starting to ( come unglued ) from the leather/sole , but again after two very harsh years of abuse I can't recommend these high enough to friends and family

Outdoors a Callin'...
By: PacificMan
I'm a very avid hiker and living in the Pacific northwest, you get used to having to trek through heavy terrain and brush. I've got a couple pairs of Carolina work boots as I am a logger by trade but when it comes to my hobbies - these puppies take the cake. They're both waterproof and comfortable, with enough grip that I'm not stumbling along any trails. Highly recommend these to those who enjoy the outdoors in a comfortable shoe.

Original Steel Guy...
By: Ted
I used be a very very loyal steel toe guy because at the time my job had required it, but as I left that job recently I was able to finally try something new. I'd heard a million good things about Carolina and myself have owned a few pairs - finally I stumbled on the CA5520's and it was love. Really, these are the most comfortable pair of boots I own.

One of the Best...
By: George
I've been loyal to the Carolina brand for a little over 10 years now and nothing has quite been as great to me as these pair of boots. Not only are they comfortable, but I can wear these puppies about anywhere and get compliments on my boots too. The Working Person's team has been good to me beyond belief, great job guys!

Broad Toe...
By: Curtis
I love the broad toe on these! I can never find any boots with that feature but these worked out great. They are super comfortable and seem to be holding up nicely. They don't show many signs of wear. Another plus is that they shipped fast!

Great looking boots...
By: Michael
I bought this boot after seeing all the positive reviews and they are right! The boots came to me very quickly and they have a great look to them. They look very high quality for a good price. Will keep this brand in mind for next time!

A Really Rough Boot...
By: Joe B
A little heavy, you would be insane to go hiking in though a very durable work boot. The sole, after long hours is not that comfortable compared to a Red Wing outsole.

Amazing Boot...
By: Eric
This is the perfect all around boot. It's built to last and feels great on your feet. It feels really roomy around your toes. Composite toes are the only thing I'll purchase anymore. It's so much lighter than steel.

Great item and fast shippin!...
By: Earl
I ordered this Carolina boot with the free shipping and got the item very quickly. They were packaged nice and barely had a break in time. They were ready to go right from the box! Will tell everyone to get a pair of these bad boys.

I was in the market for a well made composite toe boot. I stumbled upon this Carolina boot and decided to give it a try. I must say that this was the best decision of my life. This is by far the best boot I have ever owned.

Best brand...
By: Ryan
I used to buy Wolverine but I tried these Carolina's about a year ago and they are amazing boots. The price is good for the quality you are getting. The composite toe does not at all make the boot heavy or hard on your feet.

Great brand...
By: Max
This is the only brand I will buy! These are comfortable, and they really are waterproof. The composite toe is nice and they have really been nice boots. Not too heavy and not too light weight! Just perfect.

Composite toe is nice...
By: Frank
I always hated having to wear safety toe boots, but I love the composite toe on these. The boots are not too heavy and get the job done. Been over a year and they still look and work great! I will keep buying them.

Keep my feet dry...
By: Skip
Have had these for about 5 months, I would highly recommend them. I am in them all day and they are comfortable and they keep my keep dry. I condition them which also helps. They still look brand new and feel just the same!

Great Boots...
By: Sven
Carolina does not disappoint with this pair of boots. They are the most comfortable things I have ever had on my feet for work. I have had them just over 8 months and they are still in excellent shape. The waterproofing works wonderfully!

Recommended by a friend...
By: Steve
I was looking for a new reliable work boot and my friend told me that I should try a Carolina boot, so I chose these. I am a first time Carolina boot owner and I must say, they have me for life. They cost a little bit more, but they last longer. My favorite thing about these boots is how minimal the break-in time was.

Good comfort and waterproof feature!...
By: Adam
These Carolina boots are very comfortable on my feet and they also keep my feet nice and dry while on the job. It gets quite hot in the factory I work at and I surprisingly haven't had any issues with excessive sweating with my feet like I have had in the past with other work boots. They keep my feet very dry.

2E not wide enough...
By: Jch2155
I ordered the 2E width boot size and it was not wide enough. All other boots I own are 2E and fit fine. It felt as though there was a lip all the way around the exterior sole of the boot. The sole was not consistently comfortable.

Exactly what I was looking for...
By: dyoakum
I needed steel toe boots for an assignment in France. Without a break-in period, I was able to wear these boots 10 hours a day, for 14 days. My only complaint is that I just wish they were a little lighter, but with that said I think they're great boots.

great support...
By: Marty Fletcher
After MANY years of brand "W", I bought these Carolina boots. I am amazed at the difference! My feet felt so much better immediately. I am over 300 lbs. and I work as a millwright in demanding conditions, 6 or 7 days a week. These boots provide a level of support that I am not used to having. I am sold!
