  1. John O’Grady

    I purchased my first pair of Thorogoods 3 weeks ago from Midwest. I received them and noticed that the right boots top piece of leather was almost 3/4 of an inch wider than the left boot, but both were the same size and width 12D. I checked to make sure I didn’t get a mis match sizes. Nope. So i measured. Left boot just under 2.5 wide, Right boot just over 3.0 wide. Pissed I exchanged them for a half size smaller and different color, just in case it was a bad lot. NO NO NO I just received the black pair in 11.5 D and the left boot is narrower then the right. How could this happen? Twice? Where is this great quality control? Where is that union pride? Wouldn’t you at least look at them side by side when you put them in the box? Build quality seems fine, but quality control is minimal at best. First impressions last a lifetime.

    Great summer time boots like walking on a cloud not matter what terrain your walking on. Along with comfort it provides great ankle support.

  3. Cathy Jones

    Finally, a pair of boots that are comfortable and durable for my husband. I don’t see another brand of boots in his life!!!
    Thank you!!!

  4. Bryce

    A very comfortable well fitting boot.

  5. Jeremy

    I’ve been in welding and plumbing for 15 years and have owned many boots but these are now my favorite boots, my usual is ariat slip ons. I will say the first week of these boots my feet did hurt but now that I’ve broken them in they are like walking on clouds even after 10 hours. I highly recommend these boots

  6. Alexander Bullard

    So far I have to rate them a 4. But the first week they were extremely comfortable, the next week I got huge blisters on my Achilles’ tendon area. And now I can’t wear them without my heels bleeding.. but when they heal I’ll try them again

  7. Jared

    Best boots ever. I don’t write many reviews, but I got these boots through my employers safety store. These are my first pair of Thorogood’s and I have been wearing them for 7 months now. I’ve always had Red Wing Super Soles, but always had to buy their insoles. These boots were good to go right out of the box without breaking them in. My Red Wings always killed my feet for the first couple weeks. With these boots I find myself wearing them outside of work more than my shoes. If you’re on the fence you can’t go wrong. I got these boots for free through work but I love these boots so much I’m going to spend my own money on a second pair for “casual wear” just because my “work” boots are beat up so bad.

  8. Bruce Clement

    I have been a Red Wing guy for 30 years. Finally tried Thorogood boots and I love them. Well built love the wedge sole. Love that they are Union made in my home state of Wisconsin. I’m glad to be part of the Thorogood family and look forward to many years wearing your boots. I’ve recommended them to several of my coworkers. Thanks for making a great boot. Bruce

  9. Travis Harvey

    I have always worn a hiking style boot. This time around I wanted a more traditional leather boot and stumbled across thorogood brand.
    Love at first sight. This boot is gorgeous.
    I did have a slight break in period, but I also have very high arched feet.
    Now that the boot has broken my feet are happy and everyone at work has complemented the boots.
    If your sick of throwing your money to China for everything try putting your hard earned cash into some American made products. You won’t be disappointed.

  10. Clayton Whitfield

    A friend of mine could not stop talking about how great Thorogood boots were so I ordered a pair to see for myself. When they arrived the right boot upper leather was very wrinkled and loose (not a huge deal but made it fit unevenly until the left boot broke in as well). Other than that they looked beautiful. When I tried them on they felt fine until I went to work in them and realized the insole on my right boot was cut unevenly than the left one. The insole was cut too much at the ball of the foot causing it to raise slightly and put a lot of pressure in one spot. I had to buy new insoles the next day because there was no way to fix it. I wanted to buy Thorogood because my left foot was walking on clouds but I was afraid that there would be something wrong so I went with something else. The boots are amazing and I understand my experience is very uncommon, I would still recommend these boots to someone but I don’t know if I will purchase another pair based on what I received.

  11. Luis G

    Most comfortable pair of boots I ever bought. Always recomend Thorogood Boots to everyone who asks for quality and comfortable boots.

  12. Jesse

    Yuh i luv em… made in America is the best thing about them …
    For America’s working men

  13. Jordon

    Best pair of boots youll ever own, i promise . Last pair broke in after a days use, and fit was perfect. This pair i coated toe area in tuff toe and let dry. Wiped on 5 coats of huberds shoe grease and they were good to go. I work with concrete and always wear out toe area before boots actually wear out, thats why the tuff toe . Between the awesome boots and grease for waterproofing their indestructable

  14. David Alves

    I bought these because I wanted another pair of steel toed shoes for work. I own a pair already, most comfortable boots out of the box ever. Thought I’d try the sneaker style shoes a lot of people are wearing, decided not to as these boots are by far more comfortable and just as light. First pair has held up remarkably well, worn almost every day for 18 months of work. Absolutely love the wedge sole, the leather is soft and breaks in quickly. I swap the laces as stock ones slip too much, minor complaint.
    Wore Redwings for very long time, the Thorogood boots, for me, are a better value and more comfortable. Highly recommend

  15. rick

    well, I’ve only been wearing this boots for about a month now. i work in a warehouse sitting and 95% of the day is on my feet, standing and walking. I just finished a year of wearing a lower grade work boot and decided to drop the extra money and see if upgrading boots would actually be worth the money. I have to say, the differance is night and day. the thorogood boot is hands down a better boot. and this is on top of the fact that I added a pair of super feet insoles to my old pair of work boots when I bought them (that’s an extra $50 on top of the price of the old boots I had). and I’ll be honest, I do like the fact the I’m getting something that is made in America.

  16. Christopher

    I like the nice soft leather, they seem to be breaking in pretty quick.
    My only complaint is that the left boot is a bit narrower than the right. Would have given 5 stars if it weren’t for the narrow fit difference between the two. I suspect it’s because they are hand made?

  17. Rich

    These are by far the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned. Customer for life!

  18. Lee

    Most comfortable work boot you can buy. On top of that the soles last a really long time. I wore the soft toe of this same boot for years and when I changed jobs that required steel toes it was a no brainier as to which boot to go with. Thorogood is the only work boot I’ll buy. Insane how comfortable they are on concrete floors for 12 hour shifts. I love them

  19. Robert

    My second pair of Thorogoods. At the end of the day my feet feel like they can go a double shift. Durable and look good. I’ve bought three more pairs in the last six months

  20. Matt Linville

    Finally pulled the trigger on a pair of these boots; and I have to admit I’m more than pleased. After avoiding them for year cuz of the price tag, I finally went for it, and the difference is amazing! Well worth the money, these will last for a long time! And comfy right out of the box. The steel toe is solid, but not too heavy. 804-4200…I love em!

  21. Scott O*C

    Great boot! Sold all my Redwings to buy thorogoods because they are build to last. 3 pairs, black and brown for casual and 2 year old black still kickin’ tough. Literally international miles on them. I’ll Never wear another boot……

  22. Brandon

    These boots were broke in pretty much from the time I took them out of the box. I walk usually 14-18,000 steps a shift at work and these boots have been probably the most comfortable ones I have worn. Most other boots I added an aftermarket insole. These insoles are okay so far. I would say probably the only negative I found was the toebox was a little narrow on the regular width. My feet are not the thick or wide. I ordered the wide width and have plenty of room now. First wedge boot I have worn, but I will most definitely put these at the top of my oust when I need a new pair. Them being made in America was also a big selling point for me. Good job Thorogood. You have a new fan here.

  23. Kevin

    After the brief break in period these boots are the best!

  24. Spencer L

    Bought my first pair of Thorogoods after being repeatedly disappointed by nearly every boot brand there is. I’m a cnc machinist working on concrete floors and up/down stairs, slopping through oil and machine coolant, often 7 days a week. These seemed a bit snug, in a normal shoe I’m a comfortable size 9, but I wound up in a 9.5 wide for these boots. Soft and buttery right out of the box, but even so my feet hurt for about 3 days while I tried to find the right tightness and get everything broken in. They are fantastic now, and get more comfortable every day. By far the best fitting, feeling and wearing boot I’ve ever witnessed. My favorite feature is the wide tongue that allows the boot to be pulled open much further than a typical boot, making taking them on/off much less of a struggle. I will definitely resole these as long as possible and likely pick up a few more pairs along the way.

  25. Jeffrey

    Fit and comfort is consistent with every pair I have purchased.

  26. Dan

    I am very disappointed with this boot. I first bought this boot in 11.5 D but found them to fit too narrow. Having been worn outside already, I was unable to return them. I decided to give America’s beloved boot another shot and purchased the same boot, this time in 11.5EE. I was eager wear my fresh new boots to work, but upon trying them on I noticed a bit of discomfort on both feet. I could feel a gap between the outer edge of the insole and the interior perimeter of the boot, where my foot overhung . THE INSOLE IS NOT WIDE ENOUGH!!! I quickly compared the insole of the 11.5D and the 11.5EE and found them to be identical. How can you have a wide and a standard width boot utilize the same width insole? The only reason I’m giving more than one star is because the boot is constructed well enough.

  27. Jason Z

    Extremely comfortable and high quality boots!

  28. Albert

    Best boots i’ve ever worm on my feet!!!
    Cant say enough about them….thanks to my foreman for turning me onto thorogoods boots
    Life long customer and will buy more for casual wear

  29. Bradley Croppi

    Great boot but I have one very large issue. My heal likes to move up and down when walking! It’s just a little bit but it pulls my sock down meanwhile brunching it up. Please tell me someone has a solution.

  30. Jimmy S

    Very comfortable right out of the box. First pair of Thorogoods I’ve owned. Great craftsmanship, look and feel.

  31. Gabriel Parra

    Boots are well worth the cost, proud to support the American work force.

  32. Gabriel

    I have only had these boots for two weeks but I can notice the difference, great wotk boot.

  33. Godwin C Alozie

    This is my first time trying thorogood boots. I can say they are comfortable but also take time to break in. I was actually bought them and suffered my first time having them. I suffered pain in my first night in the refinery. This is was due to the third party seller not selling me the wrong pair of boots. I needed pair of them in wide but they didn’t have them. I am good now I have the right pair. I really like them.

  34. A. Salgado

    Overall these Thorogood boots are comfortable and look great. This is my first pair of this brand and style, I usually wear Ariat boots because of the comfort and easy slip on application vs lace up. But after owning and wearing for a few weeks now, the boots are worth the minimal extra time it takes me to put them on. I do have a little discomfort on my left foot around the widest part of my foot but Im sure the boots are still in their breaking period but other than that, Im ok and please with them.

  35. Terry j Neal

    Can’t say enough . I had no idea the difference a pair of genuine quality boots would make on my everyday. I was so pleased with the steel toe boots on the job I ordered the same pair minus the steel toe for when I’m not on the job my Son also ownes two pair. True to size. Short break in. 100% American craftsmanship

  36. Efrain Nunez

    Great boots fit like a glove

  37. Kyle

    Awesome boot!!! Very well built, and they have wide sizes to accommodate wider feet. Super comfortable right out of the box. I would definitely recommend to anyone considering this boot.

  38. Philip

    So far so good. One of the most comfortable work boots I have worn. I like the quality/fit and finish. They are “heritage” quality.

  39. Joseph Elrod / Oklahoma

    I will be on my feet all day, as I will be in the HVAC/R field. First pair of Thorogood I have ever purchased. They are true to size & little to none break in. They are a beautiful boot & most definitely durable! I am without a doubt a customer for life with these boots. Great craftsmanship! I’ll be back in a year from today & give another review about their life/performance. Thank you, Thorogood!! Happy Customer 🙂 5 Stars

  40. manicsubmersion

    So far so good. Initially ordered a 9 D but had to exchange it for a 9 wide. I have the the steel toe version. Boots has been comfortable after I received the correct size. Chain sawed a couple of cords of wood, and did some other pre-winter chores around the house. I have also walked several miles in the boots as part of the break in process. Let’s see how the boots hold up down the line but for now, no reason not to give them five stars.

  41. Bobby B

    Great boot right out of the box. Only wish is they came with better laces, you have to double knot for them not to loosen.

  42. Dennis

    The boots are comfortable but after just 5 months the bottom of both boots have already wore down to no tread,for the price of these boots they have worn out faster than any boot I have had

  43. Brian S.

    I bought these boots a month and a half ago, and since the first day they have been the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I am a carpenter and put heavy wear and tear on my boots, but I can tell that these will last a very long time. The sole is very tuff and hard but still provides great traction on roofs and other inclines and surfaces, also i like the fact they are made in the U.S.A.. the only downside to these boots is you NEED to clean and condition the leather.

  44. Craig

    Awesome boots!!!

  45. Robby L

    First pair ever bought. Bought them several weeks ago and they fit perfectly. Best bout I ever had and will definitely continue to buy Thorgoods in the future.

  46. Gabe

    These are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned. Virtually no break in,
    too. I’d been wearing US-made Danners, which are great. These are just fit me a bit better, & the leather seems even higher quality . The MaxWear soles are more durable, too.

    I just wish the round &. composite toes were more readily available. For the money, these are a great value. US & Union made !

  47. Alex

    Best work boots I’ve ever purchased. Made in the usa which is a big plus. Only pair of boots I’ve been able to just put on and wear. Best investment I’ve made in a long time!!!!

  48. Royce Scales II

    No break in period whatsoever. Absolutely most comfortable boots I’ve ever owned

  49. Jordan W

    I had a recent herniated disk in my back and I’m flat footed. My old double h boots used to make me feel like my legs and feet where beat with a bat at the end of the day. These boots feel extremely comfortable and very few shoes in general have ever felt this good to me. I can stand and walk all day with very little to no discomfort which it’s a 10/10 in my book. The boots also don’t cause any aggravation to my back pain they might even help it some. Will never buy another brand of boot.

  50. Dave

    I don’t and I won’t buy any other boot!

  51. Jordan B

    This was the first time I’ve ever purchased a pair of Thorogood’s, I did so because they are made in the USA. Very comfortable, will purchase again.

  52. Christian Manzanilla

    I’m a contractor and suffer from pain in my feet. I’ve gone through many boots and even tried using tennis shoes thinking I needed something lighter until I bought these boots. I don’t have anymore pain. I guess they have the support my feet need. I use them even out of work. I’m very surprised with their flexibility. Customer support was very friendly, shipping was fast and they really are true to size as they advertise. I definitely recommend this product!

  53. Richard Lockman

    5 🌟 quality. The only boots I will ever buy

  54. Larry T

    The most comfortable and toughest boots I’ve ever worn. I will never buy anything but Thorogood boots.

  55. Michael D Barley

    Very pleased with these american made boots. Take a lottle longer to break in but well worth it.

  56. Mark

    Great boot but the only thing I could ask for is that you make a better insert with a thicker pad and have a high arch insert option. Very comfortable boot out of box well made , I’m a union member of the IA motion picture grip and put lots of hours on my feet. please let me know when you have a better option on inserts union proud

  57. S Brown

    BEST BOOTS I’ve ever owned! I bought mine from Duluth Trading so I have the extra advantage of the No Bull Guarantee. I don’t think I’ll ever need it though because these boots are made well and the break-in was non-exsistant. The leather was glove soft right out of the box. I normally have to get a 13, but a 12EE fits perfectly and the thick felt liner makes the steel toe comfortable. I really like the resole program too. Hopefully, the toe leather will stand up. I put a couple of lawyers of shoe goo on to protect it.

  58. Carter Moore

    By far the most comfortable boot I’ve ever owned! Hardly any break in period! Took maybe 2 days for me to break them in. Plus being made in America by union workers is hard to beat! The quality and craftsmanship that goes in to these boots is top notch! Pretty sure I’ve found the only boots I’ll ever purchase again when these wear out. No one in the boot industry can come close to being as good as my Thorogoods!

  59. Bruce Jones

    By far the most comfortable boots I have ever bought right out of the box!

  60. Pat Mann

    Do not have one regret about buying these boots. I did not want to spend that much but they are worth it-feel great,do not pick up mud from the barn yard,they felt like old broken in boots from the start- recommend they with out hesitation.

  61. Chris Robertson

    Easily the best boot I’ve EVER owned! Little to no break in time, comfort in the toe box, sole is extremely comfortable! I work on concrete floors all day and I have zero foot fatigue. Thank you Thorogood! And made in the USA! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  62. Tully Fowler

    Ive tried wolverines timberland pros ariat ect and these are hands down the most comfortable boot ive ever worn in my 31 years on earth. Only problem i have with my pair is that one of the moc toes stiching/arch is much wider on the right boot than the left. I purchased these at a boot barn store and they werent on sale because of the defect and were the only size eleven they had so i bought them anyway. Hope the next pair is identical or close to the same. Anyways ill never buy another boot but these. 🇺🇸!

  63. DRH

    Wasn’t used to having ankle support, so took a week to get comfortable. The insoles that are in the boots are fantastic, the boots felt like they where broken in on the first day. Cannot explain how comfortable they are. Very impressed. Love them!!!

  64. Steve S

    Best boots in the world. Just like a farmer outstanding in there field

  65. Randy

    These are the best boots I’ve worn hands down. For a steel toe they are light. Right away they were comfortable and stay comfortable after long days and they are made in the USA. I will be a life long Thorogood customer. I wish I would’ve known about these boots a long time ago.

  66. Johnny

    I bought my first pair of Thorogood boots 2 months ago Very happy with these boots very light and comfortable wish I knew about them sooner I’ve been telling all my coworkers about them.

  67. Dan

    Been wearing work boots in different styles for 30+ years, starting in construction then onto the army then more construction and warehouse work. Been wearing these steel toe Thorogoods every day for about a month and I can say without a doubt they are the best boots I’ve ever owned. For one thing they are just so well made in every aspect. For another, they come with a really great set of insoles that you have to pay extra for with other boots. I normally wear between a size 12D and 12.5D which is a real pain to find. Nobody makes a 12.5D so I either get a normal size 12D and deal with painful toes or I clomp around in a size 13D which are always way too big. These run just a shade big so they fit my foot perfectly. Every other pair of steel toe boots I’ve owned made my toes sore from them rubbing the inside edge of the toe cap. With these it’s like there is not toe cap. I never feel it, which is the way it’s supposed to be. I’m so happy to have found these but sad because the foreign made things I’ve been putting on my feet all these years were only about $40 cheaper. If I’d known Thorogood made such an awesome product I’d have definitely paid that relatively small amount extra. Can’t wait to get some non-steel-toes for casual wear. I will NEVER go back.

  68. Rudy

    Best boots on the market. I’m on my 3rd set. They take a little bit to break in but once they do you will never want to take them off. Great craftsmanship and quality. Made in the USA which is a must for me. Sizing is always consistantly spot on.

  69. Devin

    These boots were definitely an investment, but a great investment so far. Bought insoles right away with the boots just in case, so there was no break in time really. My feet took so adjustment really to get used to the boot since I was wearing heavier boots. These are the lightest steel toe I’ve worn so far in my career. Great boot, couldn’t recommend them enough.

  70. Kevin S.

    Had a week or so of break in pains, but after that I’ve been nothing but impressed. Looking forward to being a long time customer.

  71. Sam W

    Great boots. Excellent comfort and fit.

  72. Tyler Eberle

    Ever since I was 17 I’ve had a job that requires steel toe boots and year after year I always bought the big name brand boots. Justin,dr. Martin’s, CAT,Wolverine ETC. I got a new job almost 4 years ago hauling oversize loads in the natural gas industry and have a life long friend that works in our crane division and he turned me to thorogood boots. Instantly I wished I had known about thorogood boots my whole life. I am now on my 4th pair. And I wont be looking back anytime soon. I’ve never worn a more comfortable/ durable boot. I always refer new hires to buy thorogood and that they wont regret it. Best boots money can buy. Keep putting out quality products.

  73. Steve

    Picked these up as my first pair of boots (besides winter boots) ever for my new job. Trust me, I was not very excited to wear boots everyday being formally very athletic and used to wearing the lightest and comfiest running shoes. Living in WI, I have heard about Weinbrenner/Thorogood forever, so decided to give it a try. It is definitely not a bad thing to wear these boots everyday, I actually look forward to wearing them. They’re very comfortable, pretty light for being a boot, and I just love how bulky tough they feel meanwhile still being as comfortable as they are. Not sure how a boot could get any better to be honest.

  74. Jacob

    Great boots! You can tell how high the quality of the boots are as soon as you take them out of the box and feel them. Leather is strong and the sole is soft but durable. Break in period wasn’t too bad and once they’re broken in the comfort is incomparable. So glad I decided to try these and move away from my usual work boot brands.

  75. Peter Godoy


  76. Daniel De La Cruz

    My feet, are thanking me … these boots are very comfortable, I’m wearing the wide EE .. I like them so much i want to get some to wear casually ..

  77. Keith

    Fantastic boots! Very comfortable and very reasonably priced especially when the job picks up a $100 of the cost. They will truly be put to the test once I’m in the shipyard full time after training. Will submit second review in a few months

  78. Buck Brandow

    Best boots ever. A must for union members. I’m proud to wear them!

  79. Raul

    These are the most comfortable work boots ever! The first week was rough to break in the shoe, but after that these shoes are the softest work boots I have ever had. My field of work is working with hydraulic systems, and these shoes have turned out to be great. The thick heel has helped me from completely flooding the boots in areas flooded with leaking oil. The leather is thick and has prevented my feet or socks from getting wet. I have had other steel toe boots that were heavy to walk in. The 804-4200 is comfortable to walk in and I have no problems when having to walk up stairwells.

  80. Edgar Luis Roman

    I’m on my second pair because I loved the fact that after I ran my first pair to the ground they were still more comfortable than my best pair of jordans

  81. Kevin

    Why can’t I leave 100 stars. My Lord these are by far the most durable, comfortable-out-of -the-box work boots my happy hooves have ever experienced in nearly 40 years, by far! Many, many, many grateful thankyous to all of the workers, designers, etc. up there in Wisconsin putting these together!!! For the rest of my days these are my workboots!!!

  82. Jason K MacKay

    I love these boots so comfortable and well made they are my work boots but I will clean up and wear as my casual boots as well

  83. Jeff H

    My main reason for buying these is that they are Made In The USA. I’m on my feet all day and these boots are very comfortable, supportive and tough. I’ve had previous pairs and they’ve each lasted MANY years, can’t go wrong with American craftsmanship! Keep up the good work folks, you have a customer for life.

  84. Brad

    The most comfortable steel toe work boot I have ever owned. No more heel pain. They are very easy to walk steel in and have superb traction despite looking the contrary. Highly recommend them.

  85. Nathan F

    Extremely comfortable and lightweight. Definitely an upgrade from the Carolina brand boots I had been wearing

  86. Jimmy Vargas

    Great boots right out of the box, very comfortable. I would suggest these boots to anyone. I will be purchasing nothing but Thorogood boots form this point forward. Keep it up AMERICAN made!!

  87. Joel Lord

    After (too) many years of working in manufacturing and construction, I can honestly say these are by far the most comfortable work boots I have ever owned. Even better that the are made in the USA!!!

  88. Kevin Mullins

    First pair I have owned, they are certainly a high quality product and very comfortable. I have owned them about a month no issues at all they are getting broken in and I like them more daily, wished they had speed laces though.

  89. David South

    Best boot I’ve owned

  90. Gabe

    I’ve had these for about a month now and so far I love them. The only issue I’ve had was finding the right insole for them. That isn’t their fault though, I broke my foot a couple years back so I have to have the extra support on top of being a bigger guy on my feet up to 12hrs a day 6-7 days a week. These boots are sturdy, well built and comfortable pretty much right out of the box. I have gone through several brands only to be disappointed. The past 5 years I have gone through 2-4 pairs of boots a year(Top of the line boots at that) so I hope these will last a long time. I like the fact that you can send them in to be resoled, stitched or pretty much anything can be repaired.
    Needless to say, 5 star rating. I’m happy with them

  91. Tom

    The Best Boots. “Thorogood” without a doubt. Fourth pair. I wear these things constantly. If you’re on your feet much at work, better get ’em.

  92. Jason S.

    I’ve worked in the Machine Tool trade for the past 20 years. I’ve mainly wore Redwing boots but finally got tired of paying there prices so a year ago I bought these Thorogoods…..WOW……I’d been missing out on the best boot ever. Comfortable right of the box. Soft durable leather. Amazing boot. Today, 13 months later I just purchased my 2nd pair. Now these boots are still good but I work hard and treat my feet to a new pair of work boots yearly regardless if my boots are worn out or not. I will never buy any other boot for the machine shop unless Thorogood quits making these boots.. Best bang for my buck..

    Bought the safety toe for work and I love them. Gonna get a regular pair for everyday wear. Most comfortable boots I’ve ever own…soft leather is easy to break in and they just get better with every step

    Alright first off, let me say I know boots. I’m in mud, sharp steel, wet and dry concrete for 8 plus then I come home jump on the welder for another couple hours. I mostly had timberland pros but also had Redwing and others. I recently bought these Thorogood American heritage, and I will never wear anything else. By far the most comfortable, and look the best. I absolutely love them. I’m getting another pair to wear out.

  95. Joe Gert

    Nice, almost the same as Red Wing , but 100 bucks less. Takes a while to break them in. I went for a walk of about 1 1/2 mi and developed two horrible blisters on my heels. Last thing the wife said before I left was “careful you don’t get blisters”. She was right as usual. I’m going to try superfeet insoles, I think the ones that came with them are too cushiony and my heel wasn’t locked in properly. Other than that, they seem very well made and are attractive as well.

  96. Sam

    Soles started coming apart from the boot after 2 weeks of medium use. Currently working with the vendor to get a refund or new pair.

  97. Dave

    I love the boots. Fit great and perfect for work

  98. Randall

    First pair and I can’t complain I’m on my feet 12 hours a day and my feet doesn’t hurt at all

    First time Thorogood boot buyer. These boots are soft and very comfortable. Initially , the boots fit a tad tight.
    Fortunately, the boots were able to be stretched by the dealer I purchased from. These are not the water repellent model but I made them into a water repellent boot. After a few months of wearing, these boots are only wearing and feeling better. Very happy with this U.S. /UNION made tool..

    Most comfortable boots ive ever owned. Most boots have to break in these are great out of the box

  101. Nathan

    My first pair of Thorogoods. RedWing wearer for many years. Hands down much more comfortable than the RedWings. Look really well made, but a little more time will tell. Important to me that they are made in the USA.

  102. Trevor

    Unbelievably comfortable for the job site

  103. Gary Boyd

    After having had surgery on both of my feet for plantar fasciitis, finding proper fitting and comfortable is essential. I have gone through big $$$$ learning what shoes will work and what won’t. This is especially important at my job. I essentially an equipment operator (bridge cranes, forklifts, pallet trucks, spotter trucks, etc) and am on my feet constantly. Most of my boots will wear out or break down in the sole within 6 months and become VERY painful to wear. What I can tell you after wearing the boots for almost a month is that they are, without a doubt, the most comfortable boots (or shoe of any kind for that matter) that I have experienced. Time will certainly be the ultimate judge, but thus far these boots have out-performed them all. They also accommodate my heavily arched orthotic insoles which is essential. You would be surprised how many boots will not work because of this. I have high hopes for these boots. They also look very nice and receive complements constantly. My hats off to the folks at Thorogood for building a superior boot!

  104. Jody

    It was my first time buying Thorogood and also first time with a wedge sole. I must say they are the most comfortable boots I ever owned and after long hours on my feet at work , no complaints. I find myself even wearing them as a casual boot outside of work, classic design and great craftsmanship. Keep up the good work !

  105. Raul A

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

  106. JD Ellis

    Lifetime Redwings fan, but not anymore I love these boots. Never buying redwings ever again. Thorogoods for life!!!!!

  107. Andy

    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.

  108. Greg Weiss

    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.

  109. Marcus

    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.

  110. Joe L

    Great so far, comfortable from the start . I ve not had them long but so far so good.

  111. Forrest

    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.

  112. Larson Singer

    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.

  113. Chris J

    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.

  114. Cody

    Very comfortable boot took me about a week to break them in for the price u cant beat them good quality boots that are made in the USA will buy again

  115. Fermin carrillo

    Great quality boots very impressive fit and construction. Boots are extremely comfortable out of the box.

  116. Pat

    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!

  117. Phil R.

    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.

  118. Brandon

    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

  119. Corey W

    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!

  120. Chuck Griffin

    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.

  121. Dan

    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!

  122. Brian Lang

    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.

  123. Keith Smith

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

  124. Alex Turner

    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.

  125. Todd K.

    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 .

  126. Pat Ridenour

    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.

  127. Cory V

    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.

  128. Dennis Stessman

    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.

  129. Alan Ralph

    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.

  130. Jeff

    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

  131. Adam Kies

    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.

  132. Brycen

    Feel great, fit great, great boots

  133. MichaelG

    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.

  134. Marc Eagles

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

  135. Dick

    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.

  136. Mike gaglioti

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

  137. R Savercool

    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

  138. Chris K.

    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 the non0saftey 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.) As long as Thorogood keeps up the high level of craftsmanship and comfort, they have a life long customer with me.
