made in usa!!!...
By: Dave F
Awesome boots great workmanship through out. Bought these boots because I was tired of buying Chinese crap but didn't want to spend $300+ on redwings. I would recomend these boots to anyone. Don't let other reviews fool you, these boots run TRUE TO SIZE! I think people are so use to nike that they don't know what that means anymore .If your a nine on a measuring device get a nine.

good but.......
By: ironworker433
I like the boot and strongly support the union workers behind them, only flaws I had and my brothers agree, there should be an option to order them without the quicklace hooks and have regular eyelets put in them,

That's what I call a Boot!...
By: hootendooter
If you are as discerning about what you put on your feet and wear to work as I am, then buy these Thorogood Boots! These have held up at everything I have thrown at them. They are easy on and easy off with outstanding ankle support. They fit well, but if you intend on wearing a thick sock or adding insoles, I recommend buying a 1/2 size larger. These have everything I need in a work boot;...durable, comfortable, sturdy and best of all.....Made In the USA! Excellent American made product that I recommend to anyone.

really comfortable and long lasting work boots...
By: brianeugne
These boots are incredible! They're super comfortable and really well made. I've had mine for years and they're not showing any signs of wearing out. I bought mine true to size and they fit perfectly. This boot rivals Red Wing's quality and comfort for half the price!

they are very comfortable pefect for operating crane all day....
By: Robert McCarthy
mMade in the USA was a big factor I bought these. I have always worn Irish Setter by Red Wing shoes. Not anymore, these Thorogood boots are the greatest, I wish I knew about them years ago . So glad I found you guys. I thought I would be wearing Chinese crap the rest of my life......operating engineers local 3.

American Exceptionalism...
By: Dan Wyant
The best and most comfortable boot I have ever worn. Quality craftsmanship, quality materials, excellent price, all day comfort right out of the box - it was like they were made on a last modeled directly from my feet. I ordered a half size down from my normal 10D as some others have recommended and it was bang on...

Leave the Red Wings to the hipster douche-bags at twice the price...buy this Exceptional American product.

Worth the price...
By: Robert Schoen Carpenters Local 8 Phila.
American/ union made. Great durable boot for that heavy exterior work, slinging slab, rough framing...all the cuts and scrapes don't seem to affect these boots to bad. (I am extremely hard on boots)... I would give it a 5 star rating except the soles get destroyed quickly especially climbing scaffold stairs, and working on rough poured concrete. If there would be some way to "harden" the soles that would be awesome...

Good Ironworker Boot...
By: Mark
Closest boot to Redwings that almost all of us use on the job. Can't beat the price and the big plus is "MADE IN USA". Everything other than these and Redwing available in wedge soles ain't fit for the burn-barrel(good for rats though) 45 years hangin iron and movin machinery says they be OK for Union ironworkers! "Rats and Little guys" need to buy something else

I am a carpenter/re-modeler and I really liked my Thorogood boots, you can wear them all week right out of the box. My only complaint is the sole wears way too fast, but I am extra hard on my work boots.

By: Joaquin P.
I received my boots today and they are the best boots I have ever owned. They are completely broken in already, better than Red Wings in my opinion. Best thing about them is they're UNION MADE in the U.S.A. I will definitely tell my Brothers to buy them. I.B.E.W Local Union 11 Los Angeles Electrical Workers

Size down 1/2...
By: johnlavery
I love these boots. They are the boots I've been looking for over the last 15 years! Now that I have that out of the way... They ran a 1/2 size too big. I have been a 9 1/2 in every single thing I own for the last 20 years. I ended up with the 9's and although the length is perfect now they are a little snug across the top of my foot. The up side is that these are pure leather and every day I wear them, they mold better to my foot!

Another cool feature is that the soles are flat. I'm not talking about the treads. There is no distinct heel. This works because that indent in front of your heel only serves to collect mud that you track into the house and get yelled at by your s/o (i digress..sorry)

Bonus is that they look really sharp. On weekends I put on my tool bags and go to work. For the last few weeks I've dusted off my boots on Monday and continue to wear them to my desk job. When they finally get too worn to present at the office, I bought a second pair just for that. The Moc-toed version of this.

By: larry hamilton
I love that they are American made by union workers. They are a good boot but the sole needs to be tougher and longer lasting. If it had a better sole 5 stars for sure.

By: Danny "dizzy" Jones
I've been buying these boots for six years and have been pleased with every pair. I've got about ten brother members of Iron Workers 623 buying these boots. No break in time is great because our feet already take a beating. I would like to have a tougher sole.

By: BamBam
This 8 inch boot ranks with the top of the line in quality. The wear is excellent on the leather and the stitching holds up under extreme heat. The backfall in my case is the sole needs to be tougher and wider. I've worn out several pair that the sole wore on one side quicker than the other throwing my foot off of the sole.

Comparable to Red Wings for a fraction of the price...
By: rli1990
Thorogoods are great work boots for those looking for a this style without shelling out tons for Red Wings. I'm on my feet for most of the day and the wedge sole is very comfortable and holds up well. I haven't resoled my boots since I've got them about 8 months ago after everyday use.

Quite possibly one of the best buys I've made...
By: momotar0
Like their 6 inch alternative, these Thorogood Heritage boots are beautifully made. If you are looking for a moc toed boot do consider these. For the price range the leather is excellent, the construction is solid. If you are considering Red Wings moc toed boots for cheaper these are quite possibly the best alternative you can find. As an added bonus these boots are made in the US. I was getting tired of chinese goods that were falling apart every year, and these boots have held up for years now. Comfortable and overall great boots.

Newly Purchased...
By: TDD40
I just purchased these Thorogood boots about 3-4 weeks ago and so far I am really happy with them. They are a good looking boot and I like that they are made in the USA. The quality of the leather feels and good and the stitching seems well done overall. There were no apparent defects on the pair I received so I'm happy with the quality of the boot.

The only downfall is that they are slightly inflexible. It may just be that I'm not used to how high the boot goes. Overall, a solid product and I'm happy I purchased them.

Comfortable and Light...
By: andomray
My last boots were very heavy compared to these Thorogood American Heritage 814 4201 boots and that was a big selling point for me. These are fairly lightweight, and the cushioning is fantastic.These still make my feet feel protected and stay comfortable all day though, so I don't feel like I gave anything up.

By: E Tollis
Hey working men, just drove from north Detroit, MI. to Lakeville Ind. to pick up a pair of Thorogood American Heritage 8 inch moc toe work boots. I can't get them off my feet, they must be stuck. I love these Thorogood boots!! Highly recommend these.

Awesome pair of boots, but a drawback for wide feet...
By: testaandrew
I bought these Thorogood boots for the winter season needing a pair of good looking boots that would also keep my feet from getting soaked. I've got wide feet and the 9.5EE that I got fit nicely everywhere but around the ankles and the outside heel part around my feet. It's mostly an aesthetic issue and causes no discomfort but I wish that I wouldnt have these big folds that make it look like I'm wearing boots too big. But these boots still look good (though a little clunky on me) and are great for what I was looking for.

comfortable boot...
By: E Tollis
I can wear these babies all day long and feel like i'm wearing slippers at work. I think i'll get another pair. Head custodian for school sysetm. Have to run around this place all day and depend on a soft boot that are gonna hold up at the same time and I think I found it. The American Heritage moc-toe 8" Thorogood boots. Nice. Must have.

love these boots...
By: zachary k
I work 10 to 14 hrs a day. No fatigue or back pain thus far from wearing these Thorogood boots. I buy a new pair of work boots every year. I wish they made the black in an 8 inch. Other than that, best durability and value around. Thanks again from a proud union member. Glaziers union no. 109.

Great Boots!...
By: lbako
Always buy Thorogoods now! Made in the USA, great quality and price. I would recommend 1/2 size bigger in this particular boot...assuming the toe stitch makes the difference? I have been buying Thorogoods for a few years now and as a Union worker I will not buy any Chinese crap boot. We work too hard to ruin our feet!

Very comfortable and flexible...
By: Ed Bell
I've been wearing these work boots for most of the spring, summer and fall until the weather gets cold. I love them for the warmer months because they're unlined and breathable, and very flexible. As a carpenter, I'm, up and down ladders and on my knees a lot. Love them !! I'll be getting some more of these Thorogood boots next spring, although I'm sure I could easily get another year out of these ones. They're Bang -On......Ed

My new boot...
By: NYCIRONWORKER
I've always been a red wing guy. Never again!!! These boots are more comfortable and no break in needed. What's most important there 100% union made in the USA!!!! Red wing shipped off more then 60% of there manufacturing to china, so if you are in the market for new boots and on the fence between Thorogoods and red wings, support your American union brothers and sisters.

Awesome!...
By: Bperkins
These boots not only help my feet but they also support my lower back!
I have tried many brands of boots but no others compare with these.
We work in the hospitals and the soles on these boots leave no markings
on the floors as to where others leave the black marks everywhere.
I will continue buying these boots.

Buy USA...
By: Brian
Why in the world would anyone pay $100 or more for boots made in China when you can get these USA made boots for the same or less! Great right out of the box and very high quality. Support the economy of your own country people and buy made in the USA.

American working classic...
By: Silinskee
The first thing that struck me about these boots was the classic design. Usually when you find something that looks as good as these it's not meant for work and it wouldn't stand up for a second. These on the other hand have it all. Comfortable and made the way an American boot should be. Stitched. Not glued together like a craft project. These are boots you can be proud to put on each day .

Only boot that will hold up while tying rebarb plus made in USA!...
By: tbaggarly
This has been the only boot I have found to hold up under the work I do as a rod buster. I have worn many styles but this is my personal favorite. The arch support is perfect for walking across rebarb. The soles do not break down and the upper leather holds up under working with concrete. Highly recommend this boot.

Nice boots...
By: Suburban Lumberjack
These are very nice boots. Classic good looks with rich looking supple leather and traditional cream colored sole. The foot bed is comfortable but there is no "cup" for the heel causing the heel to slip up and down and create blisters. The lace hooks are too small also - if you ever had to replace the laces, you might have a hard time fitting the lace in the hook. The negatives are not enough to keep me from buying the boot, but if Thorogood would address the 2 issues I mentioned, the boot would just about be prefect. I own a similar pair of Carolina boots and the fit of the heel is excellent and are American made also.
I would recommend these to a friend with the caution about the heel
