    I’m a Safety Manager for a manufacturing company and I spend a lot of time on my feet. In all my years from the Army, to drilling water wells, and now guiding personnel in safety these are by far the best boots I have ever purchased. These are my first pair of Thorogood’s, and I’m now an avid fan… And their American Made! Thank you from Acme, WA!

    This is the first time I try out the Thorogood brand boots and I am not disappointed.
    I’ve gotten a lot of complements on them.
    Once the rough process of breaking them in is over with that weird extra leather on the tongue (which in my case lasted about 3 or 4 days of wearing them 8 hours a day.) these boots are a glove.
    Super comfortable and there is enough room on the toes . The steel toe does not bother me one bit.
    They are true to size. I’m a 9.5 shoe size and that is what I purchased.
    Will definitely recommend you trying them out.

    Very happy with the purchase. Boots are fit just right. I had to change out the laces to longer ones but that was the only downfall. I will be purchasing these again.

  5. Jared

    Great boot….
    USA made need I say more

  6. Samuel Hernandez

    My brothers (ironworkers) have been wearing them for over 15 years and I just got my first pair. I’m a lineman so I need the heel for climbing. Love the new boots. Will order another pair soon.

  7. Chris Clancy

    Unfortunately I’m not liking this pair like some of the other reviews the tounge is not comfortable , and I also can not return due to wear . I’m going to be very hesitant to buy again online and I was buying to support the American worker . Just didn’t stand up to the last pairs I bought .

  8. Keith

    There is too much tongue material, so it pinches painfully no matter what I do. The right boot was made about 1/8 size smaller than the left boot so it’s just a little too tight, even after a two week break-in. Didn’t have this issue with my other boots. We only have one dealer within 50 miles and they are hit & miss on the sizes and styles, so I had to buy online. The return policy stinks so I’m more inclined to buy something next time where I can try it on in person. It’s too bad. I previously had a different model 1957 and was pretty happy with them. Not these ones.

  9. Joe

    Overall Great boot! Wish the soles were black, had little deeper tread and a little less tongue would be great.
    Otherwise a well made, very comfortable boot!
    Reasonable price for USA, union handcrafted, quality boot!

  10. Cody

    This is my first boot that has really had any break in time but once I actually did some work in them they broke in fast. I am really liking them. On Wisconsin.

  11. Carlos Martinez

    Took a little to break in
    But once they did they’re
    Great. Love them.

  12. Albert

    Gives my feet comfortability & stability after being on my feet all day. No fatigue at the end of the day. Do not necessarily have to be broken in so to say. And great tutorial video on how to do a logger’s knot. Excellent boot!

  13. Ernesto J Mireles

    Best boots 🥾 I ever owned! I can’t believe I never heard of thorogood boots until I was 40 and I live in Wisconsin! Lol! Better late than NEVER!

    The tongue is way to big, other than that very comfortable boot.

  15. Ricardo Montemayor

    Great work boots, very well made, and USA Made too!!!

  16. Michael Selah

    First All American made work boot I’ve ever owned. Non stop compliments everywhere I go. Very PROUD of the boots. And yes, they are very comfortable with easy break in.

  17. Dave

    Very nice boots. Would have been a 5 star rating, but way too much tongue. Never thought I would have said that.

  18. Gerald

    There is to much material on the tongue. I had sore spots on my foot from the tongue pressing and rubbing on it. After break in these boots are comfortable and they look good. This is my 4th pair of Thorogood boots. The quality of this brand is most certainly above the rest in my opinion.

  19. Derek

    To start my trade is Gas Utilities.My biggest complaint with these boots are the lack of hooks at the top, they have eyelets which make them very awkward to lace up and do not cinch up very tight. These are water proof boots which are great, but the water proof material on the inside is extremely slick . This along with the lack of hooks allow my heel to move up and down. I’ve tried several different socks. I was reading another review on this site and I agree that there is too much leather on the tongue which pinches both sides of my ankle making it very uncomfortable. I have massaged mink oil on the tongue every night it has helped. I know the hook versus eyelet sounds trivial but to me it is huge. I Order a new pair of work boots every year through work and I have always bought red wings for the last 30 years . I really wanted these to work. I liked the looks and all the features I just can’t wear them because of the way my heel slides up. $ 250.00 boots just setting in my closet. My recommendation is to put an hook at the top, and remove a little of the leather on the tongue. I gave 2 stars I didn’t want to be an a**hole and only give 1. You asked for my review so there it is, like anybody’s going to read this whole thing.

    Love my Thorogoods hard to break these ones in though. Beautifully made.

  21. Mark

    I received these boots before Thanksgiving. Which gave me time to break them in with oil and double socks. They are extremely comfortable overall and versatile for different situations. The lacing system is perfect. I’m able to vary how I tie my boots depending on the usage. The tongue is a niggling point as the fold puts pressure on the outside of my ankles. If it was cut about 1.5 cm on the sides lower it would fold over perfectly. This is a high quality, well crafted piece of equipment that I expect will last me a long time. Don’t compromise on your footwear, you’ll never regret it.

  22. Zack Bayless

    Hands down the best boots I’ve ever had!!! Comfortable and built very well!

  23. Barry

    Tough break in period ~2 weeks. All day comfort now the true test will be longevity in the world of fence building

  24. Amanda Ford

    the best boot my husband ever owned but now I can’t get the ones he had we black soles he will not wear the white soles I would give it 5 stars but they don’t have the black soles anymore

  25. Austin

    Great boots. Always comfortable. I can be on my feet all day without feeling fatigue in the soles of my feet. My back feels better since I switched to these Thorogoods from Timberland pros. By far the best boots I’ve ever worn.

  26. Raymond

    I’ve been a union labor in Cleveland Ohio for 19 years now I put Boots through the ultimate test of all whether these boots seem to be holding up just fine used to buy that they’re all good flat bottom boots those wore out too fast the bottoms hopefully these hold up a little better They feel good after just a couple days everybody I know likes the boots just never had my size had to pre-order them took two months but would buy another pair

  27. Tony

    Best work boots hands down!!! I plan on purchasing more than one pair. I would recommend these to anyone

  28. Kevin

    Very comfortable. You can tell someone took pride in making such a great boot. Glad I could a purchase a proud Union made boot.

  29. Tryston Bragdon

    Most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, plus the most durable. I wear them everyday from 7:30 am to 9-10 at night and never have hurting feet or blisters.

  30. Tony Brock

    Exceptionally built boot. A little clunky but relearning to wear a moc toe. Very comfortable with minimal break in time. Been in these about a month now. They do run on the big side. Recommend trying on before purchasing. Swung me over from Red Wings. We will see how they stand up over the long run. So far ,so good. Only down side I see is how expensive these are. They are definitely proud of them. I would recommend these.

  31. Brent M.

    These are the best made work boots, hands down.
    I tried them all. Best of all there made in the USA by people who take pride in their work. You won’t be disappointed. Quality at its best!!!! Thanks Thorogood, you have my business for life!

  32. Aaron

    I would love to give them a 5 star rating , but the insole might as well be made of concrete. My feet still kill me every day when I get home.

  33. j. dague

    Very comfortable, waterproof boots. Exactly as described. Only concern is availability. (my size was not in stock???) Had to wait about a month. Not a good selling point. (was worth the wait). Highly recommend these boots.

  34. Mike

    Excellent boot, I feel this was an upgrade to my Red Wing Irish setters. These definitely feel like they were made with a lot more pride. Not that the Red Wings were bad, but I was going through a set of soles almost every other month!

  35. Bob Bradfield

    Just the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned.

  36. aaron kubly

    This is my first of many pairs of Thorogood boots most likely. The boots broke in under 10 days and now they put my previous pair of Timberland boots to shame. The leather is shaped to my foot nicely, are lighter and more comfortable than my TB boots. I was a bit concerned if I should choose these or Redwings but I am very happy with these boots so far. Now, I work for a Beef and Pork processing plant as an Industrial Maintenance Tech so these boots will be put through some torture. If they make it past 1 year without issue, I will be impressed. Only time will tell….

  37. James Johnson

    Best boot I have ever owned … 1 day and they are broke in and so so comfortable.

  38. Garrett McVicker

    Very well constructed boot. Broke in, in less than a week. Don’t have any complaints. Will definitely buy another pair once this pair wears out.

  39. Bob Dull

    The best pair of boots I’ve ever owned once I got the tongue broke in within 3 days

  40. Lee Vasquez

    These boots are amazing!! Best buy ever.

  41. Shane Patterson

    I’ve been wearing Red Wing boots for over 20 years but haven’t been happy with my last couple of pairs. So I decided to try Thorogood and have been extremely pleased. Very little break in and very comfortable. I work in the mud and slop everyday and these boots are taking the abuse very well. Thanks for using great American craftsmen to make a great American boot!

  42. Eduardo

    Best boots i have ever tried on. Once broken in they were very comfortable, plus the waterproofing on these boots works very well in keeping your feet dry.

  43. Donny Wyrick

    I had these boots for literally two months and the rubber sole on the left foot is already coming off. Sent an email to the manufacturer for repair or replace. These boots are far too expensive to only last two months. Walmart’s boots last longer then this.

  44. J Trussell

    I absolutely love these boots. This is my second pair of Thorogood boots. Easy break in with them. Super soft. Bottom line I will be buying these boots from now on.

  45. Mike

    Have been wearing similar Danner boots. I heard alot of good things from a few co workers so I decided to try Thorogood. Boots are true to size and only took a few days to break in. They are the most comfortable boots I have purchased and I have been in the trades for 35 years. Definitely worth the price. Will definitely buy another pair whenever they wear out. Hopefully not for awhile though.

  46. John

    I have Red Wing, Carolina, Chippewa, and many others. I am extremely picky about my foot gear. I am in a wide variety of industrial and outdoor situations so no one boot solves my challenges typically. This boot is the most comfortable, most versatile, and slip resistant boot I have ever had. The quality is outstanding. All boots have some trade off like too heavy, or comfortable at first but don’t last too long. Usually it doesn’t take long to discover something I don’t like or at least something I’ll have to put up with. So far, I can’t find anything wrong with them and actually like them more and more. I wear them everywhere for everything. They are true gear that I can count on.

  47. Lucas Conkling

    Have been wearing red wings and decided to try thorogoods. What a boot ! Fits perfectly and gets more comfortable every day. Virtually no break in needed. Thanks for making a great boot

  48. Abraham

    Great boot. Breaking in was fast and really comfortable boot. Boots fit extremely well and size is true.

  49. Todd

    Very well made boot . comfort straight out of the box. With very little break in time.
