I own two pairs of these and might always own a pair. High-quality, comfortable, durable. Worth the money....
By: Josh C - Ithaca, NY
These are the most comfortable pair of footware I own.

I work in the field as a builder, so I wear steel toe boots though I have always had a thing for high-quality,correctly-suited footware for the job: Italian hiking boots, Spanish architecty shoes (Campers), Aussie Blundstone boots--and I wear Fryes harness for casual wear. AND these cost about 1/2 the price of the classic Redwing Irishsetters, too! Thorogood's are my favorite. I wear a 9-1/2 and they fit dead-nuts. These are incredibly light and the cushiony ride offers protection from rocks, staples and nails. Versile: whether packing a Dumpster full of construction refuse or meeting a client, they perform well.

These are extremely well-made--in America--with beautifully soft, rugged leather and a comfortable outsole; I've been beating on my first pair since May 2011. They wear so well I bought a second pair in September to make both pairs last and to a dry pair on my feet everyday. I have still (year and a half) not worn through the leather to the toe steel!!! I have quite sweaty feet, though I can go three days without these getting uncomfortable, if needed.

However, the lateral support isn't always stable (potential rollover), side-to-side, because the outsole is so high (about an 1", but see specs) and drop right off, though the laces cinch tight for ankle support and a good snug fit, and quick-loops rock. Used in attics, on rafters, with no safety problems. Treads are non-skid, non-skid and work beautifully on most surfaces; the classic carpenter's tread pattern makes for little tracking in and out of buildings, though aren't my go-to for muddy, treacherous sitework.

Will definitely have a pair of these in my footware stable for years to come! ALSO, was very easy to do business with. I would recommend and buy from them again in the future, easy and free returns if they don't fit.

awesome boot...
By: james
I'm a ironworker in refineries and I have been wearing Thorogoods for about 4 years and I wouldn't wear anyother boot. Since I bought my first pair they are by far the most comfortable boot I have ever worn and make me feel the the most comfortable and balanced while I'm walking the iron. I would recommend these to anyone and everyone. If you never owned a pair I highly suggest you buy a pair .

American Union Made!!!!!...
By: Mac
These boots are honestly the most comfortable I have worn for steel toes. They do tend to have a little stretch after a while of wearing but nothing major. As a papermaker I will continue to purchase these boots until I we can wear our soft toe running sneakers to work!

Best Boot Goin'...
By: Lars
I've worn steel toed boots all of my working life. Now that I'm retired I needed a boot for work around my house and property. The Thorogood 8" steel toed Moc Boot is comfortable, wears well, and [for me important] USA and Union made. I may have to get a backup pair for going to town!

Very nice leather...
By: Paul
I've been wearing different brands of steel toes for 25 yr. I had not heard of Thorogood up until a couple months ago. That is pathetic because these boots are well worth their salt. The leather is softer than any boot previously owned. Break in was minimal. They were a little tight at first but stretched out perfectly. As I've said, I have walked in many a pair, but these feel different and I am going to credit that to the leather. I would expect most work boots to be stiffer and most are beefier. My last pair of work boots are a discontinued Redwing that I have had for 10 yrs. They have held up well but I am very pleased and impressed with the feel of my Thorogoods that have had time to stretch a bit yet are only several weeks old. I brought them home yesterday from work to give them a cleaning with some Feibing's saddle soap and they're almost like new again. For fit and feel I'd say they have an upper hand in the American made, union made arena.

Very good leather...
By: Paul
I have worn many different brands for the last 25 yrs and have just discovered Thorogood in the last couple of months. In my hunt for American made footwear I hit it good with the 804-4208. Wish I had found them years ago. I have to say they rival anything I've worn. If it wasn't for the soft leather they'd be just another boot. So, it is with this that makes them feel unique and inclined to score them high. For the price they've done a good job. Danner is another company I have investigated but they don't fit me. For twice the price they aught to be comfortable. The only thing I kept from my Danner order was their boot dressing. I used it on my new Thorogoods and it is a good product and an important thing to apply on a new pair of boots. After several weeks at work I brought them home for cleaning with Fiebings saddle soap and they're almost new again. It's nice going to work knowing that a good, solid, comfortable and American made pair of steel toes are there waiting for me. Thank you Working Person's for carrying them.

work boots...
By: Dan
I like the flat sole of the Thorogood 804-4208 boot. It is very comfortable and great support in the arch and ankle.

just like my old man...
By: Jamar
I guess I reached the age now that my dad wasn't so bad after all. He always wore boots like this, and now I know why--they feet good, keep your balance, wear well, and just plain comfortable.

better than redwing or die hard and last longer...
By: waldo charles
I have done Iron work for twenty years now in IUEC these are the best boots I have never owned. Hardly no brake in and last about twice as long as red wing and made in America and the price is lower. Bought two pair of these Thorogood boots and alternate every other day. Good product all the way around!

Most comfortable boot out there, safety toe or non-safety....
By: Don
Always wore Red Wing 877's but had to have steel toe for a job. Since Red Wing didn't offer the 877 style in steel toe I tried these Thorogood Boots. They were made in the USA and by union workers. These are the most comfortable pair of work boots I have ever worn. I will continue buying these boots even when I don't need steel toes. Just goes to show that American union workers make the best products at a competitive price.

Best steel toe boots period...
By: Happy feet
Had to have a pair of safety toe boots for work (my first pair of steel toe boots). I've always worn Red Wing 877's but they don't offer that style in steel toe. I tried the 804 Thorogood's and they are the most comfortable work boot I've ever worn, even better than non-steel toe. The leather is really soft and take very little time to break in. I probably should gone a half size smaller than I wore in Red wing non-steel toe.

Best boots for the price.......
By: tommymackenzie5
Wearing this Thorogood 804-4208 EH Vibram sole work boot is like walking around in slippers.... Most work boots are like bricks on your feet but when you slip a set of Thorogoods on its like walking on a cloud. Made in the good old USA what yes that is true.... I don't even think Red Wings are made in the USA so this is the next choice. The lace hooks don't bend like Irish Setters do the hooks are made out of solid metal what a great thing. I don't know what more you could ask for in a set of work boots.... in fact I think they are the best boots on the market today.

Perfect! Great Value....
By: Mark S
These boots are extremely comfortable! They look fantastic and hold a great value for the price. They are American made as well. Highly recommended. This is my first pair, but I already look forward to future Thorogood boot purchases.

best boots...
By: andychatt
love my american made boots, very dependable and made in the USA. On my 5th pair never wear anything else. My dad while in the construction business as an Iron Worker and most of his co workers wore these boots. When i came into the business 15yrs ago Throgood was the only choice and like i said made in the USA.

Great fit and comfort right out of the box. Wore Red Wings for 30 years hope these hold up as well. Walk all day on concrete surface and no need to add insoles. So far I believe I made the right chose to give Thorogood a try.

Need Extra Wide...
By: KP
Love the looks, but not as comfortable as everyone has been saying. I bought a size 13 wide and maybe my feet are just too wide but it's almost like there is a lump on the opposite side of the arc support. Like I said, maybe I should have EXTRA wide boots or maybe I need to try a different insole. Other than that, they are a great looking boot and feel very well made.

If my feet could talk they would say, "Yes, he chose to buy Thorogoods again!!!!!!"...
By: Jniggli
Thorogoods are the most comfortable boot right out of the box. Most of their collection is 100% USA/UNION made. They are built to last. They have a great collection for many different trades and lines of work. I bought these as an Industrial Electrician. My feet take a beating daily and 10 months later they are going strong! Highly recommended!

long lasting boots...
By: gawhitegold
Im a industrial electrician, these boots on an industrial site lasted around 1.5 years that's great to me. And union made in the USA is a big plus keep our money here. they come out of the box soft so not much break in required. Insole last but could be a little more padded, spend the money to upgrade insoles.
