As close to perfect as can be...
By: Mechanic Man
-Made in the USA
-Good Looking
-Reasonably Priced
-Available in EE width

-Long break in period
-Sole may wear kind of quickly

I'm an auto technician, spend all day walking and standing on flat concrete. I looked into these after two other techs recommended them to me. The break in period was pretty long and painful, took a couple weeks. Now, they are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned, bar none. After six months on the job, and me using Obenhaufs heavy duty leather protector on them, they still basically look like new. The leather is a great rich brown color, the black sole looks way better than the white Vibram one, and they kind of feel like a perfectly worn in pair of sneakers, except with way more support and protection. The only negative thing is i do see some noticeable wear on the heel of the sole - these might need a new one after several years, but that's nothing your local boot repairman cant handle, and would be a much better way to go than buying a new pair. I'd say that I would buy them again, but I don't think i'll need to, these are going to last a long time. Do yourself a favor and get some, your feet will thank you.

Best boots I own...
By: Renfro
This is my second pair of these Thorogood boots. I finally wore the first pair out. I didn't even have to look for any other boot. I knew that I wanted another pair of these. I will order another pair when I wear these out too! I am a construction worker and these boots are comfortable to wear all day long without hurting your feet once they are broke in.

Another great Thorogood boot...
By: musictooles
These boots, like every Thorogood boot I've owned, is extremely comfortable. The leather seems to be a bit more waterproof than their classic tobacco color offering. The darker color, along with the black sole, also doesn't show dirt and grime quite as much. I also really like Thorogood's Maxwear sole. It's very comfortable and lasts a whole lot longer than the vibram soles. Thorogood's boots have saved my back while walking on concrete all day! They are the best!

Sizing Issues...
By: BubbaD
Last year I bought a pair of Thorogood steel toe boots in tobacco and I loved them. Problem is, once I got them broke in, I could feel the toe cap on one side. I tried again, this time without the steel toe. The ankle fits the same, but there's an almost sloppy amount of room in the toe - I probably could have dropped a full size smaller. That's my mistake, just be forewarned; there's a more than noticeable difference going from plain toe to safety toe.

Insoles could have more padding, these are the boots on my feet right now. But I upgraded the insole. This site sells them cheaper than anyone. Great product long lasting this is my second time purchasing them and will continue to do so until the quit making them. I work in an industrial environment and the stand up. Well worth the money. Better than an other ive ever tried.

Comfortable, Great Build and Made is USA...
By: Mark P
These boots are comfortable right out of the box. The size is a bit large - I usually wear a 9 wide and the 8.5EE is just right. Because I have a high arch I use an aftermarket insole. I wear these every day and I got a year of wear out of the last pair. I plan to keep buying these as long as they are available and I recommend them to co-workers all the time.

Thorogood makes a great boot entirely in America - components, assembly, everything, for a great price. They're a Union company and I buy Union when I can.

Review after 6 Months of daily wear....
By: John B.
Excellent craftsmanship. I almost didn't want to wear them to work, they looked so nice. Very comfortable and lightweight. The leather is still in great shape. This is the first pair of wedge soles I have owned. Right off the bat I was skeptical of tread wear since the tread is very shallow. These boots are designed that way for traction purposes on roofs and slippery surfaces and for cushion. The trade off is decreased wear time.(I spoke with a manufacturer representative). The soles are easily replaced due to Thorogood's design characteristics. I did wear the tread down on the balls of my feet and outer heel. Thorogood estimates average tread wear for these at 4-8 months before needing new outsoles. A quality cobbler can resole them for much cheaper than a new pair, plus they are already broken in and still in great shape.

Great boots!...
By: SolarEd
These boots are outstanding. I am just ordering a new pair after 2 yrs of daily wear as a commercial/industrial electrician. After about a week of breaking them in, they have become the most comfortable footwear that I own. You can also feel good that you are supporting other American craftspeople with this purchase. Highly recommended.

easy on your feet...
By: anthony
These boots give great ankle support and lace up with ease the leather is soft and durable and the boot feels broken in the first time you wear them the soles are the new max wear type and are still comfortable like the old style but don't step on anything hot because it will melt right into the sole overall the boot is worth every penny

Great, durable boots...
By: JSBaker8953
These are great boots! They definitely run a little large, so take that into account when ordering. Other than that, they are comfortable, durable, and downright good looking. The leather is thick and supple. They broke in quickly for me. I've never worn a wedge sole before, but I was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable that style is. I would recommend these boots.

Most comfortable insoles off all the boots I have ordered. I am a carpenter and work on concrete most of the day, flat sole is my choice and black seems to be much better than the white, which just looked dirty. No break in time for me, feel great. Good looking & well put together boots. Go USA.

High quality boots...
By: erniegen2
I really like these boots. I think they run slightly large. They took only a few days to break in. Comfortable and good looking. They've really been getting tested out in the recent snow and cold we've been having. I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a good, high-quality all-around work boot...and they're made in the USA.

Best Work Boot Ever Worn...
By: Gordon Myers
Other folks at work started extolling the comfort of Thorogood boots. So I thought I would make them my next work boot purchase. Of all the footwear I have worn these are the most comfortable ever. The leather is so good there is no break-in to be comfortable. At work Thorgoods are becoming so popular they almost appear to be the "uniform" for all trades people.
