Thank you to XL FEET for providing me with products to facilitate my blog review. All opinions are 100% my own.
XL FEET is just what it sounds…they specialize in shoes for “larger” feet. Most of their shoe and boot sizes go up to a 16 EEEE. They carry regular width shoes, wide (2E), and wider (4E). Not only do they carry several types of “work” boots, but they also carry socks (in a wide range of sizes), sandals and shoes (work, exercise, walking casual, even flipflops), and more. If you have someone who needs a larger or wider shoe, you might want to make XL FEET your first stop. If it goes on your foot, XL FEET probably has it.
The Carolina Men’s 6” Waterproof Composite Broad Toe Wide Width Work Boot is the shoe that caught my husband’s eye. In his line of work and his off-work time, he needs a durable and comfortable boot. After reading the description of the Carolina, it sounded like this work boot would be perfect.
These work boots are made with a pillow cushion that feels just as it sounds. Even after standing in these boots for several hours, the wearer’s feet aren’t tired or sore. They’re waterproof and have a composite toe box that has a broader square-ish shape which is a great feature for larger or wider feet and another reason why they are so comfortable even after hours of wear.
If you’re in a situation where you are around electricity and need a shoe that will add to your protection, The Carolina is Electrical Hazard Rated. It also has a leather upper, EVA midsole, and a slip-resistant rubber sole.
For being such a well-constructed work boot with as many safety features as The Carolina has, one would think they might be heavy and bulky but weigh just barely over 2 pounds (per boot).
After some wear, my husband said the Carolina work boots were quite comfortable. He even said he was going to take them with him on his upcoming hunting trip. He must like them if he is taking them with him!
If you have someone who needs a larger or wider shoe, you might want to make XL FEET your first stop.

Hello, my name is Laurie. I have been married to my husband for 16 years. We have two young daughters, ages 15 and 13 years old. My family and I live in Oregon so that means we are just minutes from the beach, mountains, and desert. We love it here and try to spend as much time outdoors playing as we can. When we aren’t outside playing, I enjoy reading, gardening, refinishing furniture, and other crafts.
