    These boots are great! I almost felt bad using them as work boots, that’s how good I feel about them.

    Wear these boots for an average of twelve hours a day five days a week. My feet always feel great. Planning on getting the non safety model for off work.

    Have worn Redwings for 30 years this is the most comfortable boot I have ever worn absolutely no break in time. Definitely recommend to anyone who works on concrete all day. Best of all made in USA and union made.

    Switched to these from another brand after I had ankle surgery. Haven’t had any discomfort like I had in previous boots I tried. Very comfortable and a worthwhile tool for the job.

    Boots are really comfortable, much more so than my last pair of Red Wings. I work in a rough environment, and the leather started to show wear and fairly quickly, not entirely unexpected but would like to have a more durable leather. Still will definitely buy again just for the comfort.

    Tried all other kinds of brand out there. You name it. Bought my first pair of Thorogood and I feel in love with you my first day with them at work. They are the most comfortable pair of boots that I ever bought. Comfortable all day long. Everything is well over my expectations. I can’t find anything wrong or bad to say about them. All I can say is that you need to make the switch now. You won’t be disappointed. They had me sold and well keep buying them from now on.

    This is My first pair, (the last 4pairs have been red wings) Just breaking the works boots for now. I replaced the insole with a “Spenco full length orthotic” insoles. I use these insoles in my other work boots also, recommended by my doctor. Because of an achy heel issue. It Made the boots more comfortable. Gave it a 4 stars because of the insoles.
    Boot is made very well.

    Definitely one of the most comfortable pairs of boots I’ve ever worn. I really didn’t even feel like I had to break them in. Good to go right out of the box!

    Most comfortable pair of boots I have worn yet. I will be a Thorogood customer for here on out. I would definitely recommend this company.

    The pair I purchased
    The tungs were different on every pair in the store one was stiff and the other was really broken in making them uncomfortable to the point I regret my purchase unfortunately all sales were final because of the defect

    Most comfortable boots I’ve ever put on, my only complaint is that a month in, the toes of both boots had worn all the way down to the steel toe, leaving the metal exposed. The rest of the boot seems fine.
    I work concrete construction and I’m hoping the boots hold up for at least a year, but I have my doubts after the toe wear. I would still purchase again, they’re that comfy!

    The boots are comfortable and preform as advertised. It’s my first pair of thorogoods, but I will definitely be a repeat customer. The only thing that needs changed is the strings, they keep coming loose. Not a big deal I usually change my boot strings when I buy them anyway.

    Have always wanted to buy “Made in America” boots and am glad I did. Have worn all kinds of boots and these have been the best so far. Literally can’t wait to put them on. I’m considering buying a pair just to have after work. Great job!

    Had a lot of different work boots by far the best all around. Thank you to all the fine men and women that make these boots so America can work in some comfort.

    SO far so good, comfortable right out of the box, other than that too soon to tell.

    Overall very comfortable. Pinky toe starts to hurt at about 9+ hours, I don’t have a wide foot, been measured several times. They seem like they will last a long time.

    Waterproof? Not so much. Very disappointed on the first shift a hose splashed across my toe, quickly, and a few seconds later I could feel my sock getting wet.

    The smell. My biggest complaint. I have been wearing work boots or various brand for decades and this is a first. They literally smell like cat pee. Other people come over and comment. Other guys at work complain in the locker room. I literally cannot wear them anymore because I can smell them whilst wearing them, even at work in a dog food plant. They stay in the garage now.

    So this is the most expensive pair of work boots I have ever purchased . I generally wore Rocky brand tactical type boots (CS4 and 5s ) as I am a comfort and creature of habit type of shopper . I was at a Boot Barn shopping western wear when I came across these and realized I better start putting my money where my ass is instead of shipping it out to other countries ( take note every so called patriot with American flag stickers etc on your foriegn cars and trucks ) Great work boot in every way I was at first a bit concerned about the weight of them but omg after initial beak in they are just as comfortable as my sneakers and I work long hard hours on my feet up and down ladders etc etc … hey some and keep our money and labor stateside you won’t regret it I promise .

    Just purchased my second pair. First pair lasted 2 years. Never had a pair of work boots last more than 7-9 months. Boots are still in good enough shape to send in for a tune-up. Very happy with them and tell anyone and everyone looking for boots to check them out. Bought some insoles with new pair and wish I would have done that the first round.

    They are the best pair of footwear I have ever purchased. Even after a 16 hour shift, its hard to take them off. I liked them so much I almost immediately bought the soft toe pair and I am equally as happy.

    Stylish, durable, and extremely comfortable. My only problem is the bottom of the shoe. When I worked on ice I might as well have been ice skating. Traction seems to be on the soft side, but the comfortability makes up for it.

    I been wearing Red Wings for 30 years and have been pleased.
    I seen the Thorogood boots at a work boot event and liked the look and knowing USA made was important to me!
    Most Redwing boots are made in Vietnam or Malaysia know.
    I have been wearing to Thorogood boots for 3 months and I must say it’s the best pair of boots I have ever worn.

    Moved to thorogood after wearing redwings for years. These boots are much more comfortable while working on concrete for long hours. My last pair of Thorogood lasted over 3 years, I only replaced them because the tread was gone. I should probably have them resoled. I’m a Thorogood lifer

    These are the best boots available on the market and even beats boots at a higher price point. Looks, comfort and affordability are all aspects that will encourage me to buy again. Durability is also top notch. I’ve had these boots for two years and they are still maintaining comfort. Well done thorogood. Also very important that they are USA and union made.

    First time wearing Thorogood.
    Have to say I’m well pleased, great comfort and support. I’ll do a long term at six months. Then see where the stars fall.

    Good solid boots. Comfortable out of the box. Very pleased with the purchase.

    own a construction business with about 15 employees — buy each 2 pair of boots per year as a perk. Tried these for all recently and only comment is metal pieces are all discolored – rust after a month. Went back to store and showed a few pair to owner and said that is normal?
    Looked at a few pair in boxes and noted same crude or crust. Nice boots though.

    More comfortable then the red wings I usually wear, high quality materials, true to size and would 100% recommend

    Super comfortable, just applied mink oil made them look great. Being retired military these really help with support with my flat feet .
    Just a little concerned with the speed laces, they look as if they could pull off. Still a excellent set of boots

    Wore this boot for years, even going back to when they made them with the vibram sole and not the max wear. Best work boots ive ever had. Have a pair of 814-4200 now for a casual boot. I switched companies and now i need a boot with a heel so once the boots i had to buy in a pinch wear out (not thorogoods unfortunately) im going to give the 804-4375 boots a try. As long as Thorogood keeps up the high level of craftsmanship and comfort, they have a life long customer with me.
