Wolverine sent us an email about their new Thunderhead work boot, which they say provides greater performance and superior comfort.
I’ve been meaning to write about Wolverine’s new CarbonMax safety toe technology, but it kept getting away from me. I’ve also been meaning to request a test sample to review, but that too had been backburnered. If you’ve had the opportunity to wear a Wolverine CarbonMax work boots, what do you think of them?
The new Wolverine Thunderhead work boot has 2 main features:
CarbonMax toe cap that is 50% lighter in weight than a standard steel toe cap, and thinner for better fit, while still meeting ASTM standards.
Multi-layer EPX sole
- High density base layer distributes weight and enhances stability
- Low density EVA foam for heel-to-toe cushioning
- Honeycomb heel for impact absorption
- Ribbed spine for flexibility
It also has a breathable mesh and TPU upper with moisture-managing lining that will keep your feet dry.
ETA: Available now on Wolverine.com, later this month at retailers
Colors: Grey/Blue, Lt Brown/Red

The Thunderhead and Edge look to be extremely similar, with the Edge having waterproof nubuck leather in its construction.
