Product Details

These hard-working, good-looking oxford work shoes are made from long-lasting waterproof leather and feature classic construction for exceptional support, comfort, and stability.

Why We Love Them

These rugged shoes are inspired by our original Engineer Boots, which were developed by our founder Leon Leonwood Bean, "...for Civil Engineers, Contractors and general outdoor workers where the best, as well as the most comfortable, shoes are required." Assembled by the Chippewa® boot company, with imported parts, these oxford work shoes feature a classic Munson last and premium Goodyear® welted construction for exceptional support and stability.

Katahdin Iron Works

Katahdin Iron Works
Located in the north woods of Maine, adjacent to the Appalachian Trail, Katahdin Iron Works was built in 1843 and operated until 1890, when advances in steel manufacturing made it obsolete. At its peak, the Iron Works produced 18 to 20 tons of pig iron a day and employed 400 men just to cut the 20,000 cords of wood needed to fire the blast furnace.

Inspired by these hardworking Mainers, we designed our Katahdin Iron Works line of rugged work clothes to stand up to all kinds of rough use. Today, visitors to the site can view the historic blast furnace and one of the original charcoal kilns, silent reminders of a time when fires burned nonstop amid a thriving community of Maine workers.
