We are in the process of developing a width program for our DNVR work boot collection. Please check back as we will be updating our customers as we get closer to a delivery date.
The letter after the shoe size is the width. In QLTY work boots, M = medium (regular) EE = wide

We realized that premium work boots are expensive and not everyone can afford that $200 - $350 price tag.
From the beginning, we decided to take the direct-to-consumer approach and eliminate the middle man. Our solution is designed build a consumer relationship and redefine the way you think about purchasing work boots.
Our work boots are designed and made with the same top-quality materials as other brands, but our overhead is much lower (no retail mark-up's built into the price) , and our quality is always guaranteed. It’s your hard-earned coin, and it should stay in your own pocket.
All of QLTY work boots are built using a leather Goodyear welt construction, this is a process that dates back to the late 1800's. Renowned for its durability, Goodyear welt construction stitches a thin welt together with the upper and the insole of footwear. Goodyear welted footwear is fully resoleable.
The DNVR is designed for comfort in warmer temperatures and are built with water resistant leathers and is not constructed to be a waterproof boot.
Working with premium tanneries that source leather from the US, QLTY has developed an oil tanned full-grain leather that is durable, resilient and designed to provide Shovel-Ready comfort out of the box in both cool and warmer temperatures.
Yes, the DNVR is a fully resoleable work boot. The QLTY wedge is a non-marking, oil-and-slip resistant polyurethane rubber outsole that uses a soft compound for all-day cushioning, traction and support on concrete and smooth surfaces.
