Thorogood Boots: Men's Steel Toe 804-4518 EH USA Made Wedge Sole Boots
When you work hard outside every day, you need durable, dependable work boots to last as long as you do. Not only will these Thorogood 804-4518 Men's Brown USA-Made American Heritage EH Steel Toe Wedge Boots offer the strength you need, they'll also help to protect your feet in the event of an unfortunate workplace accident.
The full-grain, oil-tanned leather upper of these Thorogood boots will provide the durability and comfort you require when working. Used primarily in steel toe boots designed for extended trips, heavy loads and hard terrain, full-grain leather is extremely water-resistant, durable, and supportive. In addition, leather can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water vapor and still feel dry. The oil-tanning process makes the leather of these USA-Made boots softer and more flexible, so it requires less of a break-in period. This process also helps to improve the leather's resistance to water, stains and damage.
Inside these brown wedge boots, a comfort weave vamp lining around the toe section of the boot will help to keep your foot cooler throughout the day. The lining, made of cotton drill, helps to keep moisture off of the foot to keep you more comfortable when you're actively working.
To soften your steps when you walk, there's a memory cushion insole in these safety toe boots. Memory foam molds to the shape of your foot, delivering personalized comfort where you need it the most. As a result, it supports and cushions your foot to offer the comfort you need all day long.
A rubber midsole provides more soft comfort for your feet when you wear these EH boots. The material is very durable and has superior puncture- and cut-resistance compared to PVC. Rubber is also resistant to bases, acids, alcohols, and diluted water solutions of most chemicals that are water soluble.
The bottom of these Thorogood boots features a polyurethane MAXwear Wedge outsole. This foamed structure contains tiny air bubbles which make the material lightweight, flexible, and shock-absorbing. The MAXwear Wedge outsole's design is similar to the traditional wedge sole design, but adds 20-30% longer life. In addition to providing the same safety and lightweight flexibility, it includes characteristic slip-resisiting qualities for the multiple work conditions that iron workers, carpenters, and construction workers demand on the job site.
To assemble the footwear, Goodyear Welt Construction is utilized. The upper fabric, lining, and sole of these men's boots are stitched together, creating a single unit for added durability. Goodyear Welt boots are extremely tough and are known around the world as a superior method of footwear construction. They provide excellent traction, as well as the best lateral stability of all boots. As long as the upper remains sound, you can have the worn-down outsole completely replaced by sewing new ones to the existing welts. This will give them a life expectancy of 20 years or more.
An engineered composite shank provides additional comfort and support. The shank forces the appropriate break at the ball of the foot, helping with arch support and relieving pressure off of your feet.
Meeting CAN/CSA-Z195 and ASTM F2413-05 M I/75/C/75/Mt/75 EH standards, these American Heritage boots will provide the protection you need to get the job done safely. A steel toe cap is inserted between the lining and the outside leather to offer protection to the toe area of your foot. It will provide impact-resistance up to 75 pounds and compression-resistance up to 2500 pounds.
For additional protection, this pair of EH-rated boots provide a secondary source of electric shock-resistance protection against incidental contact with electrical circuits of 18,000 volts or less under dry conditions. EH-rated footwear is designed with special heel and sole materials to provide extra protection against accidental contact with live electrical circuits, electrically-energized conductors, parts or apparatus under dry conditions.
A pair of these Thorogood 804-4518 Men's Brown USA-Made American Heritage EH Steel Toe Wedge Boots will go a long way to providing the comfort, safety, and durability you need on the job. Order a pair today so you can experience them yourself.

I really like these boots.The leather is very thick yet supple just like a pair of Red Wing Irish Setters I used to own.You won't wear your feet out breaking these boots in,they are comfortable right out of the box due to this oil tanned leather and a very cushy insert.A lot of other reviews on Thorogood boots complain that they run large.This is not the case.I have a 10 3/8" foot which is a 9.5 shoe.I ordered these in 9.5 and they measure between 10 3/4" and 10 7/8" inside the boot.The rule for proper fit is 1/2" plus or minus 1/8" added to your foot size.Which gives me 3/8" to 1/2" extra room inside and that equals true to size.The quality of these boots is great along with a great price.Also the tread layer looks to be made of a more durable rubber than your basic wedge sole.I will be buying more thorogood boots in the future.

A genuine no break-in Thorogood boot...
While I typically wear a 10EE in Thorogood boots I found that this boot as with the Thorogood Emperor boot my usual 10.5EE works best. These boots really require little to no break in and provide ample support for your feet and ankles. I happen to own four pairs (three now that my son scammed a pair) of various Thorogoods in this walnut leather and these are easily the best example of that dark brown honey color. Well constructed, nice looking and the finish is typical first rate Thorogood. I do think the Thorogood Emperor boot is a bit more anatomically correct with a more custom fit/feel, however these boots provide a secure fit with the added benefit of a steel toe versus a composite toe. These boots also have a slightly taller toe box when compared to the Emperor so there's a bit more freedom of movement from the ball of your foot forward. In the end I'm not at all disappointed with these boots.
