    Best boots I have ever owned! I have tried multiple boot brands over the last 20 years and these are by far the most comfortable .

    Excelent boot,When I was roofing in the 60s and seventies i wore the roofer boot,would go thru two pair a year.They were an excelent boot also,tough to break in,but when they were broken in they were like slippers.

    Great Boots. Look, style and comfort. They hit on all levels. Best part, they are made in the U.S.A.

    These boots are a game changer for me. After years and literally thousands of dollars spent trying to find a pair of boots that agree with my foot shape I have finally found them. Leather breaks in almost immediately. The sole takes a couple days before it starts flexing real well at the ball of the foot. A little warm on those 90 degree days but its a small price to pay for a perfect fit. No more spending 300 bucks on redwings and then another 50 on Insoles just to make them “ok”. I had to go down a half size in these. Thanks Thorogood.

    These boots are the best. They stay waterproof for longer than any other brand of boots.

    The best boots ever! The break in period is instant and the quality is outstanding! By far the best boot I have ever worn! It feels like you are walking on air. All pressure points are covered! You can tell this company has a tenacious drive for quality and customer service!

    Best boots on the market ! Never buying Red Wings again.

    These boots look so good, and they’re so comfortable! However I’m not happy with the durability. I’m a residential roofer and as such I put my shoes through a lot. I figured a $200 pair of boots would last longer than a $7 pair of shoes from goodwill. And they have, only slightly. Nowhere near enough to justify the price. The waterproofing has been solid, the problem is with the leather on the toe and the soles. Almost immediately the soles rubbed down. The warranty doesn’t cover anything other than manufacturing defects so I guess I’ll just go back to goodwill shoes when these boots have worn through. Would be really great for any other trade.

    These are my third pair of thorogood moc toe boots & been wearing work boots for 15 years tried out different brands I decided to try a military boot the Belleville flight was my go to boot after all the other work boots didn’t keep up then seen a store that had a variety of thorogood boots so I tried these on & however I wear a size 10.1/2 wide they were small then I tried on 11 wide they fit perfect took only a day to break in bought the other 2 pairs from Midwestboots the dirty brown moc toe in size 10.1/2 wide fit perfectly the Belleville flight I wear a size 10wide so each brand and model will fit differently so keep that in mind when buying the thorogood water proof models so you don’t have to spend the time of shipping back for your right size & now thorogood is the only brand I wear now for work & home all in all great water proof boot that will get the job done

    3rd pair. Love these boots. Pile driving puts me in a lot of different terrain and weather. My thorogood boots never fail. Great product built by good Wisconsin union people!

    Wore Danner Power Foremans for about 10 years prior to finding Thorogood. I am now on my second pair of waterproof 1957 series. Best boots ever, super comfortable right out of the boxing I got more than a year out of the first pair.

    Best boots I’ve ever owned. Supple out of the box but tough. Very well constructed and a price that is very well correlated for what you receive.

    These are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn. The lining makes them very snug fitting. I wear them in a lot of rain and recently almost 2′ of snow and my feet were dry the whole time.

    Most comfortable boot I’ve ever worn. Looks really sharp and feels like something is hugging your feel from the first day you put them on. I’ll still prob buy the aftermarket insoles.

    As usual, Thorogood boots were comfortable right out of the box. The best boots you could ever buy! And thank you for the gift, it was kick ass!

    Comfortable boots but sole has started to separate a little in just a few weeks of wear probably going back to the redwing 411 it’s cheaper and never had a problem with sole separation

    Switched from Redwings about a year ago after wearing Redwings for about 20 years. This is my second pair (my 1st pair is getting resoled). I like everything about these boots….easy break in, comfortable, made in the USA, etc. The only criticism is Weinbrenner should fix their QA/QC on the mock toe….2 out of 3 pairs I received had crooked mock toe stitching in comparison to the sole below….some crooked to the right, some to the left, one crooked, one not….not a big deal, but you brought it this far, why not make it perfect?

    Had the boot for two weeks now and the sole of the boot came apart at the toe, I’ve been having the same problem with all maxwear soles from Thorogood boots I’ve been wearing Thorogood boots for 13 years and thinking about switching brands.

    This is my first pair of thorogood boots. I went from wearing timberlands for years to giving these a try. I’m so glad I did because these are amazing. They are so light on your feet that it feels like your wearing a pair of converse but way more comfortable. They also fit great and is very durable with all terrain. I’m a truck driver and work in gravle,mud,dirt and tile floors. No matter what terrain i walk on it’s beyond comfortable. You have a life time buyer and will definitely be buying a couple more pairs.

    Absolutely the best out of the box boot I’ve ever worn. Telling everyone at work how great they are. I think you’ll be getting more customers. I will definitely be getting more in the future.

    Fantastic styling in a very rugged wedge sole boot. I wish the 1957 Series was offered in a plain, non-waterproof version…. but until it is I’ll wear these even in hot weather!!! VERY comfortable!!

    These are my 4th pair of Thorogood boots, I love everything about the boots. The craftsmanship , style, and the comfort is superior to any other boot manufacturer out there..in my opinion. The other reasons I love these boots is that their American made and Union made. Shout out to my brothers and sisters from UBC Local 547!!!
