About Work 'N Gear
At Work 'N Gear, we know our stuff...and yours!
The right stuff
Work 'N Gear is proud to bring you the widest selection of the very best brands of work apparel and work footwear designed and manufactured for use in the most demanding service, security, and industrial environments. Our expert buyers hand-pick styles based on knowledge of what it takes to work on a job site, safeguard a community, build a business, and more.
Above all else, we understand that you need—and deserve—hard-wearing durability and comfort. That's why we only carry brands with the highest reputation for quality and performance, such as Carhartt, Timberland PRO, Dickies, 5.11 Tactical Series, Wolverine, Rocky Boots, Bates Shoes and Boots, Helly Hansen, Edwards, Georgia Boot, Hi-Tec, and Magnum. Work 'N Gear is about keeping working men and working women safe, comfortable, and looking good.
We're not done yet
Okay...so we're really good at what we do. But we're also big enough to admit that we don't know it all. One way we like to stay on top of your needs is by—get ready for this—listening to you.
If you have a question or comment about anything we do (or did or didn't or should do), please be in touch. You can reach our New England-based customer call center at 800-987-0218 (hours) or drop us a line.

We encourage you to call ahead to check availability and pricing for your preferred brands, styles, sizes, colors. Or, just stop on by to browse our great brands and get store-only deals.

Not hiding out in the Cayman Islands
Speaking of real, let's name names. Since 2002, Anthony DiPaolo has been proud to serve as the President and CEO of Work 'N Gear. In addition to standing behind and speaking up for the Work 'N Gear brand, Anthony enjoys lending his name and experience to community efforts. Among other pursuits, Anthony serves on the Board of Directors of the South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, Massachusetts.
Under Anthony DiPaolo's leadership, Work 'N Gear is the proud sponsor of the "Boot Trade" program.Each year, before the cold of winter hits the northern states, this program provides thousands of pairs of gently worn boots to those in need. Customers turn in their old work boots and receive a credit for a new pair. "We wanted a way to serve the less fortunate and a boot trade seemed like the perfect solution to a big problem,"says DiPaolo. "The old boots are provided to the homeless across twelve states."
