If you have to rub your toes after a hard day’s work, then you’ll like the wider Emperor toe box. To add to your comfort, these composite safety toe boots are lighter in weight than steel while offering the same level of protection. The memory foam footbed conforms to your feet for maximum comfort on the job and off. We don’t have royalty in America, but if we did, they’d be wearing these Made in the USA boots.

    These fit as expected and are very comfortable. I’m always hesitant to buy a pair of boots online without trying them on but these are really great.

    These are by far the best boots I’ve ever worn! They are comfortable, well made, sturdy boots with the right protection. If you need a large toe box these are the best I have found.

    I wear these 10+ hours a day, mainly on concrete floor. The sole is long wearing and the foam core is extremely shock resistant.

    Major plus MADE IN USA

    I am on my third pair and as long as Thorogood keeps making them i’ll keep buying them.

    So far so good. Like the looks and the fit. happy feet with little to no break in. I will have to have to see how they hold up. I usually run through a pair of boots in about 6 months (3 months on the made in China name brands). I am hoping that spending the money and getting a product made in the US will get me a year out of them. If that is the case then this would have been an excellent purchase. This will be my second pair of Thorogood boots. Loved the last pair I had.

    I have been working in a paper mill for 21 years now and have a hard time finding boots that are comfortable! I believe I have found them!!! Thank You, for making a boot that feels like a great pair of tennis shoes!! I have problem feet, and these boots make them feel wonderful!! I was shopping for insoles when I asked about comfortable boots, and they pointed me to your boots!! Love them!! They will be my boot of choice from now on!! I am a woman and it’s hard to find boots for me in a size 11! Thank You so much for your boots!!

    My first pair of Thorogood boots. Quality seems excellent. Very comfortable with minimal break in. I have very wide (fat) feet and these are the roomiest safety toes I’ve found. Plenty of room. I do believe if you spend a lot of time on your hands and knees the toe leather will take a beating. Time will tell…. American made. Love it!

    Comfortable right out of the box. I have been wearing Thorogood boots for years now and haven’t been disappointed yet. I will only purchase American made boots the quality craftsmanship cannot be duplicated by Chinese products.

    Love this boot style. I’ve purchased 7 pair over the years and nothing else will do. Not even Red Wings.

    Wen’t out of my way to find buy these boots. Firstly the leather, it’s soft wears well and your foot will feel right at home . the grip is still like new after six months of continuous wear. All the hardware (lace loops and eyelets) is in great shape. The only negatives I have with this model of boot are Colour of finish and toecap. The colour is much closer to a red brown and in an industry where every other bloke has black or desert brown Blue steele, Blundstone or other generic brand boots its a great way to get picked out from your workmates.
    The toe cap as said in the other review they’re too soft. know against a pallet, steel skid or give something a kick its gonna mark. I am constantly worried about wearing the toe cap out long before the sole, inner and grip start to go.
    All in all, Comfortable, sturdy, look good and wear well.

    This could have been a five star review, but I have one problem with the boots. First, the good, they fit and wear well. The insoles are comfortable and do not break down easily. The leather is soft and breaks in fairly quickly. The toe area is spacious, roomy, and well padded. Now my issue, the leath around the toe and the welt scars far to easily. It is almost too soft. I has to brush my boots before and after I wear them and have to use wax or oil about every week. I love the boots but really was disappointed in how quickly the leather is scarred not just scuffed.
