  1. Matt

    Very comfortable, zero break in period, and the lightest work boot I’ve ever worn. But the white souls are the worst in a work book. They definitely dropped the ball here.

    Best pair of boots I’ve owned. I keep my boots through a couple of sole replacements before I buy a new pair. Had these since June of ‘13 and they are still stout. On my 3rd set of soles. Being on concrete all day, and using various chemicals to clean and resurface VCT and other flooring in the facility I work in, these boots have held up well. I recently purchased a pair of the Thoro-Flex quick release 6” inch and am very happy with them so far.

    Bought a pair of these 4 years ago, and aside from the sole being worn to nothing, they’re still wearable today. However, I ordered a replacement pair, which the sole fell off the toe in less than a week. I sent those back. Now my newest pair arrived about a month ago, and one boot is significantly larger than the other, and they won’t do anything for me. It’s a shame because they’re very comfortable boots, but I feel the quality is going downhill fast. Really discouraging.

    Tough leather.
    Comfortable from 1st day.White wedge soul not so tough.
    These boots get abused.I’m a union heavy equipment operator working in asphalt paving now.I have to scrape off asphalt buildup on the soul and have lost several chunks of the soul.DON’T know if they will hold up the whole season

  5. Alexander

    Hands down greatest pair of footwear I’ve ever owned. I’m a structural steel welder in plants/quarrys and have completely abused these boots. I’m on my feet 10-12+ hours a day 5-7 days a week and these boots are the greatest investment I’ve made. They run large so I would order 1/2 size down.

  6. Chad Sandidge

    Very comfortable boot, not really had long enough to tell how they are going to wear. First pair thorogood I have bought,was really wanting to get a 6″ boot in this style but was told that don’t make it.would be good if did because I have wore this type of boot in 6″ redwing for years and thought I would try to compare.

  7. Trent

    Love them! I put them through the ringer cutting steel and welding 10-12 hours a day and can’t find anything to complain about. Solid boots, very comfortable, great look.

  8. Randy W Barker

    Great boot! I have worn these for years with no issues. (And they are made in the USA)

  9. Scott Bohmann

    Very comfortable work boot

  10. T.J. Lansdown

    It’s not a bad boot. I ended up returning them because the sole started to split near the toe after wearing them for 3 days. I would have exchanged them for another pair but I don’t think they will hold up in a mining/heavy fabrication environment.

  11. D.A.

    Very comfortable!!

  12. Union worker

    Very little to no break Time so comfortable that you think you’re wearing tennis shoes
    I have Never pay that much for boots before But I’m so glad I did and Also Made in America by union workers
    Makes me very proud to wear these ! Will continue to by Thorogood forever Made me a true believer because of there craftsmanship and quality

    In 25+ years of wearing Weinbrenner/Thorogood USA made boots of different styles I have never had any break in problems. The max wedge sole I have found to be more durable and longer lasting Vibram soles. GREAT BOOTS ,keep it up! IAM Lodge 66 brother .

    After a couple of weeks. These are by far the most comfortable boots I have worn. Lot of concrete time. No problem.

  15. Johnathan

    Great boot

  16. Kevin Cox

    This is the second pair I have owned. The first pair was a gift from my son and this pair a gift from my wife. I’m having my first pair resoled for home. Great boots!

  17. Austin

    Great boot. Sole is not great. Not exactly what I expected for a 200 boot it’s been 4 weeks and I’ve conditioned and cleaned once a week. All in all its what you’d expect good leather just a bad sole. Wears out to fast for that much money

  18. DCP-5150

    I’ve been buying work boots for 22 years and these have to be the best pair I’ve ever purchased. I’m in the electrical/low voltage business and do everything from climbing ladders, walking large warehouses, dirt construction sites, you name it. These boots are cool on the foot and very good gripping soles. Thorogood will be my next purchase for work boots as well as this model.
    Union made boots in the USA!

    Very comfortable boot.

  20. Damian C.

    Two years in agricultural water district maintenance. These boots have been put through the ringer and they have held up better than everyone else’s boots. The sole is chewed up from slag, concrete, and lathe chips this is the only reason they are my new housework boots. Comfort and durability.

  21. Cody

    The boots are light weight and look good but they somewhat lack comfort. In the end though after long days walking on concrete I’m not sore afterwards and that was the goal when I purchased these boots.
