Where are Golden Fox Boots made and a quick overview

The iconic boots originate from Ontario, Canada. They have been hand stitched and made ever since 1970 by skilled footwear experts. They make work boots for nearly any profession. A combination between the latest materials and technologies with the classic hand stitched fine leather uppers, they are preferred and well known among hard working people who want suitable and comfortable shoes to wear at work. All GFs are Goodyear welted boots which makes them more durable than most of the other work boots of the same category.

Golden Fox Boots Review at a Glance

The outsoles are usually flexible, light and yet durable and slip-resistant. There are various models  available which you can choose for your specific work conditions. Here are the reviews of several of our favorites which are definitely worth considering if you are not required to wear safety toe and heavy duty work boots at your workplace:

Golden Fox Chukka Boots Arizona

These Arizonas are classic Golden Fox Chukka boots, designed for those who want non-heavy duty, lighter footwear. The construction as in all their shoes is a durable hand-stitched Goodyear welt one. The upper is made of high quality, water-repellent full-grain leather which is oil tanned for added comfort, easy break in and durability. The outsoles are flexible and light which makes these moc toe boots perfect for those who do not need toe or metatarsal protection on the job, and for those who walk and move a lot on their jobs.

The pigskin lining is soft and the removable insole offers excellent arch support and cushioning for the feet even after hours of hard work.

The outsole is slip resistant and oil resistant, and thus safe for wearing in slippery conditions. Plus, it is made of rubberlon and thus is more resistant than the majority of other analogues on the market.

The only thing you need to know if you are ordering them online is that they tend to run half a size larger, so order ½ size lower than your normal boot size.

Golden Fox Enzo Chukka

These casual work boots are from one of the slimmest Chukka Enzo lines made by GF. They are not as heavy duty as other models are, and are suitable for an office job and a non-hazardous work site. The flexible outsoles allow for easy and fatigue free walking and moving around at your job. The soft pig skin liner along with the cushioned removable insoles provide the ultimate comfort and arch support to keep your feet and legs happy even after a long day at work.

The classic Goodyear welt construction of the high quality full grain leather upper is a guarantee for the durability of these wonderful, light and durable work boots.

The rubberlon outsole is slip resistant, durable and non-marking.

Overall, these Golden Fox Enzo Chukka boots are a perfect choice for site supervisors who spend time both in the administration as well as on the actual work site, and move a lot during their work hours. Once again, they can run about ½ a size larger than what you usually wear, so it is a good idea to test them at a brick and mortar store before ordering them.

Golden Fox Goodyear Welted Boots (Insulated)

Just three words to describe them: sturdy, durable and slip/oil resistant. These moc toes are lightweight and their outsoles are flexible at the same time. These are suitable for work sites where there are no hazards of falling or rolling heavy objects, because they have no toe or metatarsal protection.

The soft mesh lining and the removable pillow cushioned insoles provide excellent comfort once they are broken in. They feature an extra comfortable pig skin collar.

Typically for Golden Fox moc toe boots, these too have high quality, hand stitched, full grain oil leather uppers and a Goodyear welt construction for added durability.

Again, they do tend to run a tad bigger than your normal boot sizing, so make sure you try them on before buying them.
