Thorogood Boots: Men's Side Zip 8 Inch 834-7991 Waterproof Trooper Boots
It's a shame that your favorite pair of tennis shoes can't always carry you through life. For those tough circumstances when you need more protection and more durability, Thorogood Men's 834 7991 Black 8 Inch Trooper Side Zip Boots have your feet covered. They were designed with a classic military look, with materials and methods that are meant to take care of your feet. There's no swish, there's no famous name written in glitter on the side...but you will get extreme comfort, safety, and long-lasting wear.
The 8-inch, all-black uppers have side zippers and a standard lacing system to keep your feet securely locked inside. Tumbled, oil-tanned leather in the Thorogood boots creates the waterproof uppers. Leather's natural springiness helps it fit flexibly and comfortably around feet.
Spacer mesh material lines the insides of the men's boots. This breathable material that's in place, along with the Thoro>dri waterproof system allow heat to escape to prevent sweat. And when moisture and sweat do collect on the skin, the unique material wicks it away. For your safety, the Thoro>dri system is also blood-borne pathogen compliant.
Non-metallic, engineered composite shanks provide lightweight arch support. The shanks keep arches lifted, so your muscles don't have to do work as hard when you're wearing the waterproof boots. Because we know your work days aren't easy, these slip-resistant boots also have polyurethane footbeds with a special EVA cushion flex to provide lightweight cushioning. Shock-resistant polyurethane absorbs more force than rubber, but weighs less. Made in a removable design, the soft footbeds are easy to clean. Lightweight compression molded EVA midsoles with impact 300 gel heel inserts give you a lightweight core of flexibility. You can enjoy these rugged, black boots with less hassle and more pliability!
The GenFlex2, dual-density rubber outsoles are attached utilizing Goodyear welt construction. The welt stitching around the base of the waterproof boots creates a flexible, repairable bond. The rubber soles have a gripping lug tread to keep your steps firm and safe. Hop in and out of these military boots quickly, using the tough YKK side zippers and Velcro closures.
Thorogood Men's 834 7991 Black 8 Inch Trooper Side Zip Boots don't have a celebrity spokesman, and they're not worn by high-paid athletes. They're modeled after the work boots worn by the real heroes: members of the military.

These boots would be great; however......
These boots would be great; however, the top is just way too snug. There is just not enough room built-in for anyone with an athletic calf muscle to zip the boots up and feel comfortable. I would highly recommend considering either a straight lace up boot or a lower boot height (e.g. six inches) if you are committed to trying this model with the side zipper. I am a power-lifter and this was my first foray into a side-zipper boot; otherwise I have always been satisfied with the Thorogood line. I returned them for a credit and will buy the straight lace-up system that I am used to...and that fits me comfortably...with these boots there is only so much room for your legs with the zipper secured...not enough unless you have very thin legs in my opinion!

These boots are very comfortable, but I have to agree with one of the other post in that the top is snug. You can take the boots off by using the side zipper, but to put them on you have to unlace and unzip them. Very good boot and I would buy them again. A build as good as a Danner but lots more comfortable....and I do mean lots
