Richard Karn, Amercia's Favorite Tool Man, Celebrates Iron Age Work Boots: Old School Tough Work Boots for Old School Tough Workers

Richard Karn knows a thing or two about work boots. He has been working with the tools of the trade for decades, first as Al Borland on ABC’s Home Improvement and most recently on the History Channel’s Assembly Required. Karn, in a brand new series of six videos, heaps heavy praise on some of the toughest work boots around, Iron Age Work Boots.

In one video, Karn educates on how to save one’s foot with metatarsal protective footwear from Iron Age. In another, he invites viewers to “just say no to (boot) crack” with Iron Age’s industry-only crack-resistant leather. Other spots highlight the importance of picking out the right boot for the right job, and Karn even gives tough workers the okay to wear soft toes for some jobs, profiling Iron Age’s first-ever soft toe offering, a boot not a slipper. With humor, straight talk, and good old-fashioned wisdom, Karn profiles an Old School Tough Work Boot brand that has helped build America since 1918.
