    The fit is true to size for D-width. My usual size is 12d and these fit like a glove with just enough wiggle room in the front. The boots are flexible and comfortable out of the box. The Vibram sole isn’t as beefy as the MaxWear90 sole that I’ve come to know and love, but it feels less clunky and has a lot of grip. I like that these aren’t as fashion forward so I won’t feel bad for getting them dirty. The leather feels very durable. These are just plain awesome work boots. Comparable to my Red Wing 2406 boots, which are also awesome boots, but the Thorogoods are more comfortable and cost a few bucks less.

    ^^^^^^^ Leonora Hilton, If you are having to double knot these or they are coming loose, you aren’t tying the knot correctly. I had the same issue with boots (not specifically Thorogoods), and now tie by boots differently. It’s the same way you have to tie boots with leather laces. There is a strong form and a weak form of the shoe knot, and the strong form won’t come loose and doesn’t need to be double knotted.

    I’m sure it won’t let me put a video link in a review, but a simple search on YouTube has several videos that can show you how to do it and fix this issue for you.

    I really love the fit of these boots, even though I didn’t think I would. However, mine do Not have the upper lace eyelet, which is why I didn’t/couldn’t give it 5 stars. I can’t tell you how many times the laces come undone and nearly Trip me! Working with livestock and heavy equipment, this becomes a Hazard. If I don’t double knot them, they come undone, every 5 minutes. Not happy about that! Why don’t mine have the upper eyelet hole? I hate double knotting the laces!
