Great, comfortable, quality boots...
By: plumber
These boots are well worth the money, was told that the leather comes from Wisconsin, and whole manufacturing process is done here in the states. Red Wings were my go to boot before but the price of their similar model almost doubled, and i have been told that they are outsourcing steps in production. Leather is softer in comparison to the 877's yet just as durable if taken care of and not abused. they broke in nice and very comfortable, still holding up well after a year!

Made in the USA...
By: Finn Local 399
I love these boots. I typically wear size 11.5 but a size 11 fits me in this particular boot. I will be buying another pair in time.

Great Boots...
By: Dave
Great boots. They run large though, so go a half size smaller than you would usually wear. Made in USA, so your money stays in the family. Best boots I've owned in years.

My favorite pair...
By: Paul
I've had them for little over 2 years and they are my favorite pair of boots. Extremely comfortable with perhaps 2 weeks of break in time. I would choose them over Danners or Red Wings any day, especially considering the price. One caveat is that the Vibram Christy wedge outsoles look great but do not grip well in snow/ice. When the time comes (probably 2 more years or so), I will resole them with outsoles that can cope with the winter here in NY. They run true to size, imo.

comfy boots...
By: moonie
Im a Carpenter from Australia and these boots are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned The only bad thing about them is the leather is a bit soft, I've worn the toe out in only 6 months of wear but I would by another pair no questions asked!!!

I've been buying these for my boyfriend for 3 years and he loves them....
By: Kimberly Friend
I bought a pair of these for my boyfriend a few years ago because his workboots were shot. He rarely wears anything other than workboots. We both liked that they were made in the U.S.A., plus they are so comfortable for him. I've been buying them for him ever since. He has 3 pair that he rotates. He's had them re-soled but now it's time for some complete new pairs. The only thing I don't like is that the soles wear down more quickly than the rest of the boot wears. I noticed the product information doesn't mention being made in U.S.A. anymore. If they aren't, it's just a shame. It's difficult to find American Made products. So, this time I'm only buying 1 pair, and trying out another brand as well. I was giving Thoroughgood my business for making a quality product IN the U.S.

Interesting alternative...
By: Ambitious_Sloth
I've worn these Thorogood Heritage wedge boots several times, but more for a fashion accessory since I use my Chippewas for more oriented stuff. That being said, these are actually really comfortable if you get a good size. I felt these were pretty true to size but I still have room in my boots. I wouldn't suggest doing any heavy construction with these boots because they're not as rugged as other boots in the same price range.

Comfortable, Well Worth It...
By: MatthewDC
I bought a Thorogood pair of boots (814 4000)I have been wanting a good pair of workboots for a while (more for style, not for a worksite - I'm a web developer) and always had it in my mind to get a good pair of Red Wings...until I saw the Red Wing price tag. These Thorogood boots came up as a recommendation so I decided to check them out. I read the reviews, looked at all the pictures, etc., and at the end of the day decided to order a pair. I got a great deal with the 20% off special so I paid right around $110 total. I normally wear a size 12 and decided to order these in 11.5 based on reviews. Two days later these boots showed up at my door and I quickly had them on my feet and was wearing them around the house. For some reason the right boot fit perfectly and the left boot was a little tight around the toes (not in length, just in width a bit). However, after a few days these boots fit perfectly. I've been wearing them for about a month now and am 100% satisfied. Best pair of footwear that I've EVER owned. I would definitely buy these again, and you cannot beat the price especially for something American-made and incredibly well-crafted.

Got these with the Chippewa 6 inch apache boots... both are awesome...
By: JDMFanatic
I've been wearing these Thorogood American Heritage 814-94200 boot socks for a while now and i'd have to say that they are an awesome pair of boots! only thing I did not like about them is how they have the ugly made in United states of america tag, which I promptly carefully cut off when I got them. Otherwise, the comfort of the boot is great, and they look awesome to boot. With a quick layer of sno seal and a har dryer they are completely waterproof and ready to go in the rainy san francisco season. Perfect for my application, so I have no complaints here. Price is great as well!

Beautiful and reliable boots...
By: momotar0
I've had a pair of Thorogoods ever since I was a teenager and I'm always impressed with the quality of their footwear. My previous pair lasted well over 4 years, and they still look incredible if moc toe boots are your thing. The construction of the shoe is reliable and for the price range very much worth it. If you decide to buy them, consider a coating of obenauf or sno-seal if you live in cold climates. Other than that you're set. Again, I can't stress how awesome these boots are. They are comfortable, look great, and are a great price.

These boots are super great...
By: timguy29
Have you tried Thorogood boots before? If not, you have been missing out, and I mean sorely. These boots are where it's at without a doubt. 1 - They're made in America. 2 - They look hot as anything. 3 - They're easily as good as the Red Wings model they're similar to. 4 - They're insanely comfortable right out of the box, and getting even better every time I wear them. About my only complaints are that the leather is a tad soft and that the sole is kind of embarrassingly thick... but they'll thin up in time.

Excellent, beautiful boots...
By: phoenix
I've had a pair of Thorogood boots for seven months now, and I have to say they were a fantastic purchase. I still consistently get compliments on them, and the shoes still look phenomenal. With a little care, these will break into some of the best boots you've ever owned. In addition, if you care about supporting home-grown American companies, Thorogoods is one of the best, as their shoes are entirely American-made. If you're looking for a solid, versatile, and sexy boot, there's no better place to go than these.

Great Boots...
By: Miles J
These boots are fantastic! I have been wanting to get some for quite a while now and i finally pulled the trigger. When these Thorogood boots arrived, I couldn't have been more pleased. My wife swears that she saw a single tear of joy roll down my cheek when I opened the box and gazed upon them for the first time. The fit is fantastic, the quality superb and the price amazing. I was surprised that they aren't as clunky as my hiking boots and they're very well cushioned. And the leather...well, it's just beautiful.

True to size...
By: ghardwick
I'm a solid 9.5 D and tried on 9's, 9.5's, & 10's. The 9.5's fit like a glove. The leather is soft and looks great. The laces come undone for me unless double knotted or tied using Ian's secure lace knot. (google it) I bought some Obenaufs to keep the Pacific Northwest rain water from destroying my new American made boots. the leather darkened slightly but they look great. The wedge sole is super comfy but squeaks on commercial tile. The insole feels great on my feet. No need for inserts on these. I'll be buying another pair of these Thorogood boots in the future.

awesome boot...
By: CuriousApe
A review for Thorogood Americn Heritage Wedge 6" Moc Toe Boots 814-4200. As I enter my 20s, I am expanding my wardrobe to be more 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 Thorogoods featured on a blog and was lured in by the Made in America construction and unbeatable price. With a little better marketing and press, Thorogood could easily compete with Red Wing on a larger scale.
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, they'll last a lifetime I'm sure. Be sure to get some thick wool socks to wear with em though!

American Made and Affordable...
By: jjamtmac
To start I'm a huge fan of products made in the USA. I received these for Christmas and I'm pretty happy with them. They're pretty good looking boots but I prefer the Chippewa Apache boots. After a night of heavy drinking I came home and the soles of my boots were all kinds of scuffed. Albeit was entirely my fault I'd prefer they didn't scuff as easily or have a sole that doesn't show as much wear. Overall they're a great boot for the price but wouldn't be my first choice.

Well-made American Boots...
By: Simon
I bought these Throgood boots from another website (the company that has a cartoon worker crouching and singing soprano on TV) and I paid about $30.00 more than if I had bought them here. However, I did not realize at the time that the "Wisconsin boot maker" they referred to was Thorogood. It is, however, exactly the same boot, only Working Person has a much larger selection at a much better price! I wear these every day at work in a home improvement store and my feet feel comfortable all day. The only change I made was to add Superfeet insoles. The only thing keeping these from being 5 stars is the fact that the lace hooks bend a little too easily. Otherwise, it's a great pair of boots, made from really good quality leather. I'll be buying more, only next time, I'll buy them here!

Great boots...
By: astepbehind
I love these Thorogood work boots. I personally believe you are getting a lot more than you are paying for.

First off, the leather is amazing! It looks much better than it does in the picture. Super comfortable and soft right out of the box, doesn't take much breaking in, if any. The leather also seems to be very high quality, nearly on par with my friends Red Wings (although I think the shape of his RW are slightly better).

I'd definitely buy these again when they wear out. If I had to take a guess, the sole will be the first thing to go, but even with that in mind, these boots are an amazing value. As a side note, the toe box is also less squared off than the picture shows. The boot really does look much better in person!

Affordable American Made Work Boots...
By: QuadK
This pair of made in America Thorogood boot is a durable work boot that not only looks absolutely amazing but also performs under tough conditions. The leather is very nice and comfortable and can be waterproofed with either Obenauf's LP or Sno-Seal if you plan on using these in wet conditions. The out-sole is thick, wedged-shaped, and Goodyear welted, so you will definitely get a lot of wear before having to resole or replace. The sole works surprisingly well in snowy or rainy conditions, but you should still be careful when walking on ice. For sizing, you should go down about half a size from your regular shoes. Overall, for the relatively low price of these boots, you will be getting several years of wear and many more if you resole them as needed.

best yet....
By: rockydog
Finely got the right boots. I have had most brands and I don't think it gets any better than
these boots. Right out of the box they feel like a great leather glove the you broke in. I will
probably order the other model and throw out all my older boot that after new inserts never
felt as good as these boots out of the box

Fantastic boots; great value...
By: makarushka
The boots are superbly made and very comfortable. The leather is thick but so supple that it feels strange at first if you are used to heavy stiff boots like Wescos or White's. But the flipside is that the comfort is unmatched.

For my average width feet they were at first rather tight from the ball of the foot to the toe box but after about a day of wear fit IDEAL. They do in fact run a solid half-size large, so order a half size smaller than your regular size.

WOW!! A++...
By: HVAC Mike
I am a licensed HVAC technician and have been reading and hearing great things about these boots both on and offline. I decided to give them a try and ordered two new pairs the other day. I had them drop shipped at my shop for convenience and to not have to worry about two pairs of quality work boots being left on my doorstep to get swiped as I live out of town and rural. That might have been the best thing I have done. They showed up at my shop today shorty before lunch. We unboxed them and took a look. My coworkers were also anxious to see them. All I have to say is WOW!!!! The cool American flag boxes should have been an obvious clue what was inside already. The American flag tags on the boots themselves also let you know what you are looking at. Every HVAC technician and office personnel worker at my shop saw them as I unboxed them at the front counter in front of everybody. They all said WOW..nice boots Mike!!! Now we all are familiar with Wolverine, Danner USA, Red Wing USA, Ariat and many others. Just about every variety is on someones feet there. These impressed everybody!! Pride of ownership and wearing quality footwear that is both comfortable and visually pleasing means something. I just got them today, so I haven't done anything but try them on so far. They fit great right out of the box and will require little to no break-in. I know they are very good quality by the construction methods and smelling the wonderful smell of REAL leather. I have no doubts they will hold up against any abuse us tinbangers can/could throw at them. They will do so in extreme comfort as well. I couldn't be more satisfied and happy about this purchase.

P.S. I reckon you are going to sell MANY more pairs....soon! LOL

Thanks! Mike

Day after day, year after year...
By: Skimmer
I've been buying this model for several years now. Have tried other brands in the past, but these combine good quality and realistic price. I'm exceptionally hard on my boots (one man do-it-all home improvement contractor), and these boots last a good year of constant wear. They're comfortable enough that I also wear them as casual attire.

Good boot. Good fit....
By: robert v
I'm glad I purchased these boots. I usually wear Danner's, and decided to give Thorogood's a try. I'm impressed with the fit and quality. No regrets. Purchased with coupon and got them at a great price. Very happy customer.

You have to try them...
By: Adam F
Four years ago I purchased these boots looking for something better when my Redwings had worn out. I am very pleased with their performance and have recommended them to several of my friends and coworkers. I now have three pairs, but not because they wear out, because I use them for different things. Best boot I've owned by far.

Good Again!...
By: Mike Onyon
I have worn the same model of boot for many years. When I went to get a new pair I found that they are now made out of the country. Just a few minutes research revealed the story and specs of Thorogood Boots. I was hopeful but doubtful when I read all of the superlatives about quality and comfort. I love quality boots and I must say that I was blown away by the quality, comfort and looks of these boots. Even the packaging was impressive. Thank you Thorogood for making such a high quality, reasonably priced product in America and thank you Working Person's Store for representing such a fine product! I'm hooked!

These are the closest thing to a perfect pair of boots out there. Although I don't use this model for work (I require there water proof boot) I can say that these are extremely comfortable out of the box vs red wings. Quality is just as good if not better than red wings at a fraction of the cost. I will no longer buy anything but Thorogood work boots. All materials, stitching and craftsmanship that go into these boots put them above the rest. The icing on the cake is they are Union Made in the U S of A! My only complaint is I wish I had known of this brand years ago. Do yourself a favor and get you a pair.

Comfortable and Extremely Durable...
By: JSHeinrich
I have owned these boots for 1 1/2 years. I am an electrician. I wear my boots at least 6 days a week for anywhere from 10-16 hours a day. Through summer and winter, work and yard work, they have been flawless. I just bought a new pair because they were finally due. These boots never popped a stitch. The leather wore very nicely, no holes or major wear. The soles wore down until they were flat, that is why I got a new pair. I ordered the same boot just the 8".

These boots are extremely comfortable and durable. I will never own a different boot.

These work boots are great right out of the box. The leather Thorogood uses is of very high quality. The boots are very comfortable and require very little break-in time. These are pretty much good to go right out of the box. They are almost too nice for dirty work, but they are built very well, so I am sure they will hold up over time. They run about 1/2 size large.

comfortable and well made...
By: robertdevito
Comfortable well made boots, provide stability without being too heavy so you can wear them all day long. I use mink oil to waterproof and always buy work boots that don't have steel toes because they get too cold in the winter. These boots are very sturdy without having to have steel tips and suit my needs perfectly. The only issue I may have with them is the extension up the back of my heel was a little too stiff until I wore it in.

Great right out of the box...
By: mvbsd
These boots may be the most comfortable boots I've owned. They came out of the box fitting great and for me required no break in period. I've never had boots fit so well from day one. I have had boots with more padding in the sole, but that has made no difference - those boots were not as comfortable OVERALL. True to size. Highly recommended.

American Made Boots...

Quality American Made, high quality leather with no break in period...
By: RichardS-VA
These are high quality and American made boots. Sizing for boots is usually a 1/2 size smaller than tennis shoes. The leather requires no break in period and seems to hold up very well under heavy use. The first two wearings, my white socks had some staining, which was to be expected with any new pair of shoes. The flat wedge sole feels much better on finished concrete than my heavier duty steel toe work boots with standard type of heel, also by Thorogood. Hipsters seem to love these boots, I wear them for work.

What I've been looking for...
By: KD
These boots are awesome. Very comfortable. In fact, I ordered another pair just to have as a backup. I've worn them all.....danner, red wing, ariat, lowa, merrell......these are the best. Im sure the sole will wear out fairly quick but that's ok too since they're so comfortable.

I would highly recommend these. They look great with jeans or khakis and they are very high quality. USA made. Great price point as well. These are the kind of boots that look and feel better the longer you wear em.

Thorogood USA...
By: cheshire132002
I have owned A LOT of boots. This was my first purchase of Thorogood, and I wrestled between these and Chippewa or Red Wing. I am blown away. These boots were soft out of the box! I do not know what Thorogood does or if they have a fantastic leather supplier, but I have worn them, everyday, since I received them, even on my days off...comfortable and the quality is way beyond expected! USA made in Wisconsin! Keep our people working!

American made Boots for the American Man...
By: johnlavery
We all know that tough, hardworking Americans need tough, hard, brash workboots made by the same tough, brash, stubborn, hardworking Americans. These guys know quality and so do we, the proudly displayed MADE IN USA tag isn't needed to display its quality even though its given from that tag. These things are brash, tough, and hardworking.

Buy these if you a tough, hardworking, brash American who need quality boots.

Great: looking, comfort, price, and quality...
By: ghardwick
I got these boots last year and they are going strong. They are a bit dressier than my normal work boots so I tend to care for them and wear them differently. I tried a pair on at a local work wear store to get the sizing right. They fit me true to size and are quite comfortable. I lathered them up with Obenauf's LP and they a great for we weather. The soles squeak on sealed tile, that is my only gripe.

Goodbye Redwing!!!...
By: Tennyson Dobbins
After wearing Redwings for 30 years they will never get another dollar of my money. These Thorogood boots are very comfortable two days after wearing them unlike the six months of discomfort breaking in Redwings. For me I can't get time back so shouldn't a product serve me well right out of the box. So what if the leather is soft that's why they feel so good to wear, when they wear out I'll buy another pair of these fine American made boots. Thank you for the high quality work footwear, American leather, American soles and American craftsmanship I'm a believer.

Wow. SOFT LEATHER! Beautiful boots. Legit. MADE IN THE USA!!!! I love these boots. I'm 5'6 150. I wear size 9 in Vans. I'm glad I read the other reviews of ordering a half size down. (8.5 D). I use this more for fashion because it looks amazing, it's a boot and I live in WA STATE where it rains ALOT. Look good, feel good and protected. I wear Wolverines for WorkBoots. No issues with shipping. The Boots came on time. I think I got a 20% discount just by signing up with an email on this website. Awesome. I heard about this website on YouTube by a Thorogood Moc Toe reviewer.

Good choice...
By: ElectricalWorker
Comfortable boot. I treated with Obenauf. Breaking in nicely, more comfortable every day... Sizing was correct, I ordered my regular size. Widest part of my foot fits exactly in widest part of boot - at first I thought they were long, but I now see it's a great fit.
