You may need to go with 1/2 smaller size for a perfect fit....
By: Larry
I agree with others on this site as well as other web sites about this brand being 1/2 size larger than competitive brand boots. I communicated with customer service and they believed Thorogood sizes run true but I found this not to be the case. For me, this boot would fit perfect if I would have selected 1/2 size smaller than my Red Wings. I don't plan to return them because I can make do with a little more room. Also these boots seemed to be sized larger than other brands, possibly because they have no padded liner. I do however, like this boot and find it very comfortable to wear. Furthermore I like the fact they are made in MADE IN THE USA.

Finally wore out...
By: G.R.H.
My first pair of boots have lasted so long that i can not remember when I bought them. I wear them every day and they are by far the lightest most comfortable durable pair of boots I have ever worn. Getting ready to purchase second pair. Just make sure you know your width! Do not guess! These boots will conform to your feet like no other. Keeping my first pair for around the house.

Great Boots from Day One!...
By: B. Mazingo
These boots break in fast! I have had these boots for about a year now and they still wear great. The boots need new soles because they have worn down and started to lean. Also these boots seemed to be sized larger than other brands, possibly because they have no padded liner. I had to add a thicker insole to compensate for some weight I lost (feet shrank too). I am looking to buy may second pair, just a size smaller this time. MADE IN THE USA

Awesome quality...
By: BK
I have a narrow foot so finding the right boots can be tough. When I saw these in a B width and being made in America, I had to get them. The craftsmanship and quality is the best I've seen, in all my years of buying boots. It's also great that is says "Made in USA" right on the boots. They're pretty comfortable right out of the box, but I think after a couple of days they will be broken in completely. They've been around since 1829 so I hope they keep making them so I can keep buying them over the years.

By: Alan
I have worn these boots every work day for the last 10 months. From day 1 they were comfortable and have gotten more so. These are the quality real leather boots that I remember from decades ago. Slightly more expensive than the imports. But worth every penny!!

By: Sara Jane
I bought these boots for my grandfather and he was so thrilled with them. He is retired now and gardens, raises chickens and a few goats. I feel good knowing he is safer in these boots, he was wearing old penny loafers.

Amazingly crafted American-made boots....
By: Larry Henderson
As I enter my 20s, I am expanding my wardrobe to be ore than plain sneakers. I'd been looking into a good pair of boots for a long time. I wanted them to work in tough conditions (rain, snow) and in a regular setting. I found these featured on a blog and was lured in by the Made in America construction and unbeatable price.

3 months in, these boots are working fantastic, I've worn them out in the snow and rain and around downtown L.A. and they work equally well. With consistent care, these'll last a lifetime I'm sure. Be sure to get some thick wool socks to wear with em though!

Solid USA Construction...
By: dacrazydude
This kind of craftsmenship at this price range is outstanding. Full grain leather uppers, goodwear welted soles and Made In America? Honestly, there is no reason not to purchase this boot. It's fairly versatile as well and can be used in casual settings.

Old New Shoes...
By: deidrethered
My father used to wear these when I was a boy and bought me my first pair when I was 12. It's been quite a while since I wore these last, but they feel exactly the same as they used to! After breaking them in, they are the most comfiest boots I have ever worn. If I ever have to buy another boot, I'd buy Thorogood!

Comfy and they look good too...
By: RyaWhit
Well, they're not exactly construction-site boots but they're perfect for everything else. They're also pretty good looking, which is always a plus. You might need to half-size down for the perfect fit.

I need to have another pair!...
By: cp298120
I loved the look of these boots and needed a replacement pair after some wear and tear. I was planning on getting them here but they are on back order until march so ill leave my impressions of my first pair here instead. They are absolutely comfortable out of the box, not much of a break in period at all required. They hold up well to abuse and look great the entire time. I would recommend these to anybody who wants some durable and stylish boots to get through the work day with.

The only thing I wish was different was perhaps the sole, not quite as much traction as the usual rubber lugs on red wings.

love them!!...
By: patty
I've got a pair of these, and I wear them year 'round. They're a softer leather boot that look great with a lot of different pants/trouser combinations. Virtually no break in time, and the construction is very solid. I will warn you however, if you read reviews, you'll notice people say that they are about 1/2 or 1 full size too big... The reviews are very correct. I wear a 13 for everything, and I had to size down to a 12 for these. Buy a pair, you'll love them!

Honestly the best pair of shoes I've owned...
By: redpanda12
I had a hard time deciding between these Thorogood boots and the red wings. I really think I made the right call, these are much cheaper and almost the same quality. It takes a while to break in to these but once you do its like heaven for your feet. I had to go with 1/2 a size smaller than what I usually wear. Every couple of weeks I give it a coat of mink oil which give the boots a really nice feel

Reliable USA made work boots...
By: QuadK
These Thorogood-brand made in America work boots are well constructed and durable. Use a waterproofer such as Obenauf's LP, and you will get many years out of this boot. The welted Vibram wedge sole is not the greatest for traction on surfaces covered with heavy snow or ice, but it still works very well under moderately slick and/or wet conditions. After being broken in, these boots feel very comfortable to wear even if you are on your feet all day. This boot tends to run slightly large, so make sure you try half or even a whole size down from your regular measurements. The pricing of the boot is very fair, and you should get several years of life out of them with regular maintenance and resoling.

very well made...
By: CuriousApe
TheThorogood 814-4355 work boots are great boot. But as you might have read they DO run about a 1/2 size too big. I thought that didn't apply to me, I was wrong. I had to return a pair, and order 1/2 size smaller, which is a pain, because the sooner I can wear them, the sooner I can enjoy them. They are VERY well made. And I really appreciate them being made in the U.S.A. They do need to fix their sizing problem though. I love these boots though great quality and I can see these lasting me years with the proper care that every shoe needs.

Review update...
By: Aan
After 2 1/2 - 3 years, the soles were worn. The cost for a resole was more than I expected. I considered buying a new pair instead. But these Thorogood boots have become so comfortable!! The sole had become too slick to safely get through a Vermont winter, but there was no damage to any stitching or the leather. (My maintenance was Sno-Seal twice a year.) I bit the bullet and had them re-soled. I am glad that I did. While this review may not help Working Persons sell you a second pair, it explains why you should buy a first.

Rugged & Stylish Workwear...
By: Redbourbon24
These Thorogood boots can be worn anywhere! I wear them to work and out on the weekends. I am in the steel construction field and the Vibram soles provide excellent grip. Whether your dragging deck after it has rained or walking bar joists and beams they will keep you comfortable and feeling safe. Plus they are made in the USA! Only reason I don't give 5 stars is because the ankle support could be better and I wear the soles down on the outside more than the inside but that can be fixed with some insoles from Dr. Scholls.

USA Made...
By: CuriousApe
With their excellent build quality as well as good looks, Thorogood boots are a good choice when it comes to work boots. These are also made in the USA which is always a plus when buying products since that is so rare these days.

The boots are comfortable right out of the box and the leather will just soften up over time to become more comfortable than they are. With proper care these will easily last years. They are work boots and as work boots they have no trouble keeping up on the job site being beat up day after day.

Like walking on a cloud, right out of the box!...
By: hosspants
I opened the box (red, white & blue, of course) to find that Thorogood had actually sent a pair of custom-fit insoles already inside the boots. What a nice bonus! The insoles happened to be USA-made; another plus. After applying a couple of good coats of mink oil, I laced them up and put my new Thorogood boots on. I was initially impressed with the eyelet hooks. They're really smooth, not likely to wear on the laces too much, but really effective too. Only had them on 15 minutes, but I've never been so impressed. Highly recommended. Totally worth the price.

Round toe 814-4355...
By: RS
After purchasing a few pairs of the Moc toe, I decided to give these a try...Outstanding boots, for work or whatever you may need them for. I am more partial to the moc toe look, but was not in the least bit dissapointed after purchasing these and the Thorogood wedge sole in my opinion is beefier and more comfortable than a traditional Vibram, I am 100% behind the quality and price the Manufacturer produces. I would buy these over ANY other USA branded boot

great boots but...
By: charlie
I purchased another model and got a half size smaller because of the reviews I read about size. The next pair different model 814-4355 were at least a full size bigger than I wear.
Working persons great customer service sent out a label and the box was on its way back the same day. The smaller pair should be hear today. Will review when they get here.

Decent work boot...
By: tm79118
I have worn these boots for about a month. The boots are well constructed and comfortable. My job requires me to walk steep roofs. So far they have provided good traction on roofs. I like that you are able to cinch the laces up tight, which keeps for a tight fit while walking roofs. It took me about 2 days to break them in. I will probably order them 1/2 size smaller next time. They seem to run a little large.

Great American Boots...
By: BobG
Comfortable American made boots. I'm in these boots at least 12 hours a day and to be honest I'm not in a hurry to get them off at the end of the day! Actual break in time was about two days, after about a week in them, I treated them with Sno-Seal, seemed to make them even more supple and comfortable. Solid boots.

Can't go wrong with these...
By: musictooles
I started buying these boots a few years back when I moved to the city and my lugged sole boots were giving me back problems walking on concrete all day. I can't say enough about how comfortable these boots are and it's funny how many people that I work around have also begun wearing these. I think they're more comfortable than my sneakers! The leather isn't all that water resistant compared to other boots I've owned but if I needed that I would just buy Thorogood's waterproof version. These are just great boots!

Right out of the box comfortable!...
By: rn
These boots were top notch quality. Excellent leather. The leather was soft at the ankle upward and nice and sturdy at the last (heel to toe). The sole was very comfortable. Should last long. I would of liked all eyelet holes for the laces though, my preference. The sizing is off though. Beware. I wear an 11½D in shoes and sneakers and I ordered an 11D and I have a little bit extra room (I have a narrow, thin bony foot). I might of been able to get into a 10½ but I didn't want to chance hitting the front. So in my opinion, try 1 size down. It might be a perfect fit for you. It would only be one exchange. Other then that, I made a great purchase I think. Time will tell. I'm happy. Can't go wrong with Thorogood USA. Buy them!

Nice boots but size is a little bit big....
By: SCANDAL
This is my first Thorogood boots and the quality of this boots is really high quality and very comfortable to wear. Couple of my friends recommend me this brand and I am very happy with this boots. Two things I do not like about this boots is they run about half inch larger and a little bit tight for me. I order size 12 EEEE and still feel a little bit tight on me. I decided to keep the boots and take it to the shoes store to stretch the boots a little bit more. Next time I know I have to order a half size smaller for Thorogood boots.

Good Boot - Runs Large...
By: Jack
Excellent construction and quality, and a competitive price compared to lesser quality boots I've worn. Like several others have reported, they do run larger than you might expect. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11 medium, depending on the manufacturer. I ordered 10.5 based on other reviews, and they fit well with heavy socks, but with lighter socks I have to close the tongue more that it naturally wants to lay and puckers the tongue. Still have a 3/4-inch gap for more tightening if needed. I use Superfeet insoles and these boots have removable insoles to make replacement easy. The boots are light and perform as it should. While I wear White's Smoke Jumper for hiking, hunting, camping, etc., these are perfect for working normal weekend stuff around the house because the sole doesn't pick up stuff to deposit in the house, which my bride hates. I would buy these boots again.

Great comfortable boots...
By: Abigelei
I have been watching these boots for a while, and when I saw them go on sale here, I knew it was time to buy them. The boots are a little darker than they seem in the picture, but I think a little wear and tear will make them much more appealing. They are very comfortable, have a large toe box for the flat-footed and bit-footed among us, and keep my feet comfortable all day long.

By: Jeremy
These boots have great leather, an excellent wedge sole, very minimal break in period and they are made right here at home in America. Thank you Thorogood for producing an exceptional product at a very competitive price.
