  1. Lex Lazarides

    I have had these boots for a month now. I love them.
    At first they were a little stiff and I worried about how they were going to break in. After about 2 weeks they loosened up and feel great. I can wear them for 14 hours/day without a problem. My only complaint is that they arrived with 2 different types of laces in them. The left boot has the brown laces and the right boot has gold laces. It doesn’t make any real difference, so I just left them that way.

    Haven’t had them very long, but very comfortable and I have worn them cutting wood and fishing. They have been in the water a bit and my feet stayed dry. I love these boots and I love that they are American made.

    Best boot I’ve ever owned very well made very comfortable I will be buying thorogood boots from now on

    I saw the other reviews talking about the tongue bunching up. Mine did too, the store got me another pair that was much better. I love these boots. I’ve never had a boot this comfortable on my foot and I mean it. I use them for fishing ponds that I walk to. They feel great and I’ve never had a wet foot once even though I’ve often stepped off in the water. Great feeling boot, I love them.

    Good boot and breaking in well with lots of mink oil. One major problem though. Way to much material where he tongue meets the boot. It literally bunches and or folds up for about one inch in the bend of the ankle right under the lace eyelets and was extremely uncomfortable. There was no way to alleviate this. So I took them to the local cobbler and sixty dollars later, much better. They trimmed a bunch of material and were restitched.

    I’ve had these boots for about 5 months now. They are holding up great and are very comfortable. It took about a week to get the tongue folded and softened where it didn’t hurt me. I keep them treated with obenaufs leather products. I wear them at work on the railroad and on my days off I’m in the woods hunting. Most days I put on 5-7 miles when I’m hunting in various terrain. The key to making them last along with any other boot is cleaning them and oiling them regularly. My feet haven’t been wet in these boots yet and I think they are very comfortable. I will buy again.

    Very well built. Haven’t worn them much. Still breaking them in. Very comfortable other than the fold on the tongue need to soften. Wish they made them smaller than a size 8. As per other style Thorogood boots they seem to run big on size. I haven’t gotten to test the waterproof yet.

    First pair of Thorogood boots and less than impressed. Boots have been used 5 to 7 times and are now broken in. Broken is key…they leak. Thought waterproofing different than Gore-Tex would last longer because of issues with other manufacturers product after 8-10 months.

  9. Mike Richards

    Very well made and comfortable boot. Being an avid upland hunting individual I was skeptical of these boots because I have gone through so many others. My first impression is the conformity fit and durable tread and lasting rugged style. I have had these boots for two months and have worn them in snow, mud and water in SD hunting conditions and my feet were comfortable and warm and more importantly my feet did not hurt one bit. I just worn these boots hunting Quail in SE Arizona in the very rough, mountainous terrain and my Thorogood boots were fantastic, they kept my feet comfortable, protected and secure on the uneven surfaces. I would recommend these boots to avid outdoorsmen or outdoors women who need a solid boot and rely on a boot to get them through any hunting conditions in any environment for that I give a solid 5 star rating for what I have put these boots through and will continue to count on them day after day in the field.

    Outstanding boot. Very well made and very comfortable. So well made it may be the last upland boot I’ll ever need.
