  2. Joe

    Excellent boot! Super comfortable and easy to wear! Would highly recommend!

  3. Carl

    Nice boot. However once I got them home I was disappointed to see they were made in China. Hope they hold up.

  4. Darwin Lester

    I have been wearing these for three weeks. I can honestly say that these are one of the most comfortable pair of boots that I’ve ever owned.

  5. Robert Clark

    Best damn boot I’ve ever owned because of no break in period. I’ve got bad issues with my feet with this great boot I’ve had no problems, not one! The side zip is MARVELOUS! Beautiful style

  6. Patrick Huggins

  7. Jerry Coburn

  8. Chris Jagdhuber

  9. Chase Norris

    I have had this exact model boot 2 different times and wore daily for years. Best boot on earth!

  10. Chris Mata

    Comfortable and flexible

  11. Anthony Sroka

    Excellent boots. Treated them with Sno seal. They are very comfortable easy to put on and off. Want them for use in deep snow which they are great for but also use them on other days because of how comfortable they are.

  12. S Drogowski

    Really like my boots easy to get on and off. Comfortable I usually have them on for about 12 hours a day. Only bad thing so far was finding out the were NOT MADE IN THE USA like all my other Thorogood boots

  13. Patrick Long

    They fit well. Very comfortable. Only bad thing is, 2nd time out, the zipper tab (handle) caught on something and ripped right off. It’s very awkward zipping that boot now. Should tell YKK (the zipper manufacturer) to eliminate the needless tab eyelet, which I feel probably caused the damage.

    I love these boots and I even wear them on my day off!

    I did have the same issue another reviewer posted where one boot was tight on the top of my foot. I honestly think it was because of my foot—not the boot. But either way, the solution is simple: break the boot in.
    You need to open up some space in the boot. You can accomplish this by placing something in the boot every day after you take them off. I also like to flex my foot while I’m wearing it to help make room exactly where it’s needed. So in the end, it’s not really an issue.

    The only real issue I’ve had is since I do wear them all day every day, the sole is detaching from my right boot in one spot. I will have wet feet this winter unless I get it fixed. I wish I’d thought of it sooner, but now my 1 year warranty expired this month!

    My only other gripe is that I do wish this boot was made in America

  15. Christopher Patrick

    I bought these a few weeks ago and was initially very excited about the purchase, because they are high-quality boots that look very good. Unfortunately, after wearing them several times I’ve noticed that the fit is different in the left boot vs. the right boot and the roof of the boot is very tight to the point that it hurts my feet. Kind of disappointed after spending a lot of money on these. I would be open to suggestions or help.

  16. Dunovan Rogers

    Great boots but after one week of use, to toe guard started opening up and not there’s a big hole exposing the composite

  17. Sal Maiorana

    Good quality boots and very comfortable. I would definitely buy another pair next time.

  18. Jakes

    Absolutely brilliant

  19. Dakota lunsford

    Great boot thanks thorogood

  20. David Cross

    Best boot I have worn

  21. Darin

    I had this same boot a couple years ago and they hurt my getting terribly. The main issue was the top of my foot. Wore them for a year praying they would get better and finally had to go back to old boots. The boot itself was a nice boot I just think the design is off on measurements somewhere at opens it is not cut correctly.

  22. Josh K.

    Comfortable, and durable. Not experienced any issues with them. Worked them in just fine, and continue to wear them without any discomfort or flaws.

  23. Bryant Mitchem

    On my 2nd pair. First pair was one of the best pair of boots I ever have worn. 2nd set is tighter even though same size.

  24. Chris

    Worn for 8 months. Still hurt my feet. Very stiff still. Uncomfortable. I dred putting these on for 14 hours.
