    These boots are great very very comfortable. I even wear them on weekends when I’m not working The breaking times very quick, just a couple of days. I’m a fan of thorogood for life now.

    So far so good. I clean sewer lines and I constantly refill our vactor trucks and get my boots wet. They are staying dry so far, only had them a month. They are very comfortable even though I still put some insoles in them, I need extra arch support. They look very good.

    Comfortable, quality waterproof steel toe work boots. I’m quite happy with them. This is my second pair. And my purchases help to support other American craftsmen.

    From the purchase to the actual wearing of this product, the experience has been phenomenal and gratifying. The attention to my needs and level of the sellers willingness to get the most comfortable, competitive boot and pricing was second to none. Wearing these boots has solidified my faith in the american union made industry. Best comfortable and well made boot I’ve ever owned.

    Boots are comfortable once broken in which took a few weeks and they are definitely waterproof. They run a little narrow for me, but all in all a great made in America, Union built boot that I’m proud to have on my feet for 12 plus hours a day. Only complaint is the eye hooks for the speed laces, can you please make them bigger so they’re easier to lace? Love the boots though, they are beautiful comfortable and seem very durable so far!

    Awesome boot! Very confrontable . I just wish a compost toe was available over the steel. This is the only thing I would change, and the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars . Great American made boot!

    Wear my Thorogoods with pride. All about quality and American pride.
    Amazing comfort, look cool, and are tough. I have converted several buddies from Chinese boots by Red Wing.

    Amazing boots… waterproof in 4.5″ of standing water, super comfortable right out of the box, I walk about 12-15 miles a day and I choose these over my tennis shoes most of the time. And overall great looking boots. I have recommended and will continue recommending to anyone looking for new boots.

    I’ve only been wearing these for a few weeks, but so far I very pleased with the comfort and overall appearance. Hoping they last a while I’ll definitely look at buying again when these wear out.

    So far this is a excellent boot as far as comfort. Still a bit skeptical about the waterproof of the boot but not going to give up all hopes yet ….

    Great feel right out of the box. Very comfortable and very durable.

    These boots are definitely the most comfortable boot I’ve owned and I love the fact that they are basically broke in straight out of the box. The only reason i didn’t give them a 5 star is because the sole of the boot is way too soft and chip to easily. Great boot over all!

    A buddy recommended these boots to me. Great quality that feels good all day. Sometimes I wear these instead of my asics if they are closer. They’re that comfortable plus waterproof. Highly recommend

    Real Quality Surveying Boots!
    I’m a Surveyor and put my boots thru hell, Especially Surveying in south Texas. Perfect fit, extremely waterproof, tough as nails leather (can withstand Cactus). Horns, Thorns, and Fangs is everyday day life for Texas Surveyor. These are my second pair!

    These Boots are amazing ! I love the way they feel and they look awesome too.
    If there was a downside I’d say they are hot in the Summertime but come Winter it will be a different story.
