  1. Bill

    This is my first pair of Thorogood Boots very easy on the feet. For sure they will not be the last.

  2. Wilson

    The boots seem to be a half size over even with thick socks. The leather is dry as I have oiled them 3 times and they still need more oil.
    I like the comfort and support these boots provide, but next time will buy 1/2 size smaller.

  3. allen

    soles on boots pops when walking ,,it sounds like the glue didn’t set proper ,but other than that they are best boots i ever had .i would definitely buy these boots agine ,and would recommend this boot … i am very hard to fit but these out of box was just right .

  4. Jim

    So far so good. I like not having a heel. Very comfortable boot

  5. JOHN

    This is my first pair of Thorogoods. I think to myself every morning why did it take so long to buy a set. Everything about the boot is top of line. Leather is soft and no break in period!

  6. Randel Lucas

    I have been wearing carolina boots for 21 years and finally bought a pair of thorogood boots. And I have to say they are great.

  7. Sd

    Great, on second pair I don’t for see changing brands any time soon comfort, fit, and longevity are great!

  8. Rick Burdine

    After years of struggling to find a boot that I loved, I’ve found them. After a few days of break in, I can honestly say that my feet havent felt this good at the end of the day, for as long as I can remember.


    That I know of this is my first pair of Thorogood boots. They great right from the start. The Maxwear wedge is very comfortable. I would recommend this boot. Thanks

  10. Hank

    Great looking boot. Fit is ok. I say that because the inside seams around the top of the Moc toe could use a thin liner of sorts to prevent the threads from rubbing through thinner socks.
    Wearing thicker socks isn’t the answer as I’ve much cheaper boots that have figured that out.

  11. Jeff Grayson

    Great boots, as always. No break in required. Great out of the box.

  12. Nathan c

    First pair, I love them! Also the first pair of boots i’ve had, that didn’t need extra inserts! The white wedge soles are hard to keep clean but whatever.

  13. Robert

    Best boot I’ve ever owned. Nice and light, holds up well. Feels like a slipper.

  14. Brian

    Super comfortable right out of the box!! The leather just keeps getting softer from week to week. I’m a cement mason and on my feet all day and these bad boys are super comfortable, a big step up from the Irish setters i previously had.

  15. Monty

    I’m on my fourth pair . Great fit and look, worth the money. No need to look elsewhere.

  16. RayGuzman

    Great work boot right out of the box very comfortable and very durable most important made in the USA

  17. Joe Conner

    Great boots period. Just bought my 3rd pair. They last longer than other boots I’ve gotten for work. Will definitely buy again.

  18. Brett N

    I have plantar fasciitis, and arthritis and instability from an old ankle injury.
    I need stable, comfortable footwear, and these boots fit the bill perfectly.
    They are supportive enough to prevent my ankle from rolling, and the wedge sole and footbeds are comfortable enough to not exacerbate the plantar fasciitis. They are more comfortable than any boot I have ever used, including hiking boots. Heck, they’re almost as comfortable as sneakers.

  19. Zacharie Petty

    Love these boots. They are my second pair. I’m having a problem with this one though. The sole on the front is coming apart from the boot its self. Hoping a little bit of shoe glue will fix the problem because I owned my first pair for a year ( working construction) in them almost everyday before I decided to get another pair of the same exact boot.

  20. Chris

    Best pair of boots I ever purchased, will buy more. American made can’t beat that

  21. Chris

    Best boot I ever purchased, American made can’t beat that

  22. Markus Nielsen

    Love my pair! Awesome boots

  23. Mike S.

    I just switched over from the Irish setters to the thorogood moc toe and I’m glad i made the switch I’ll never buy a different kind of boots again. Super comfortable and they look good.

  24. Adam

    Excellent boot. I grew up wearing only Redwings, but lately have had trouble finding good Redwing styles that are American made. This is my second pair of Thorogood boots and I plan to continue buying from them. Great boots.

  25. Victor Kovner

    My second pair and I hate to admit it cause I’m a life long Red Wing fan … but these boots are not only more comfortable but the break in is painless !! They’ll have my business from now on.

  26. Mark

    I bought these boots for work. There is a painful hot spot left boot only under ball of my foot. It is so uncomfortable, that I dread wearing them. If it weren’t for that issue, they would get 5 stars as the right boot is incredibly comfortable. At this point I cannot say if I would buy them again.

  27. Ryan Elledge

    Been wearing these boots for years, and will continue to wear them for years to come. Union made, no break in required, comfortable and last a long time.

  28. John D

    I run equipment for a living and these boots are super comfortable, not to mention they look great . From the northeast where unions are strong and buying American counts.

  29. Dylan

    A lot of people have their own choice for boots but since I got into Local 7 Ironworkers in Boston I’ve worn nothing but Throgood boots and am a big fan of them.

  30. Daniel Link

    Been wearing Thorogood boots for years. They are good quality boots,no break-in required.

  31. Joe

    Great comfortable boots,definitely not for wet conditions though.all in all though pretty happy.

  32. Mr. C.Wallace

    I love my Thorogoods. This is my second pair of these 8″ moc toe boots. So comfortable and Hard working. I actually look forward to putting them on in the morning. I work as a carpenter and I dont think I’ll ever buy anything other than Thorogoods for my work boot needs. Plus they’re a great looking classic boot. Generations of working men have rocked the moc toe. Love my Thorogoods!

  33. Chuck

    Love my boots!!! Ready to work out the box. Wore redwings for yrs, switched 3 yrs ago and “not going back”!!!

  34. MATT

    I’m diabetic and have to take care of my feet! And a friend of mine told me about thorogood boots, and luckily I worked for a contractor who had a nice boot allowance so I got a pair and have loved them ever since! I will only buy thorogood boots , because of their comfort,
    durability and amazing craftmanship.

  35. James

    Comfortable boots that broke in quickly! Much better quality in these boots than the competitions foreign made models! I’ll purchase them again.

  36. Larry

    Words can’t describe the comfort of these boots!!!! I have been wearing ariats and redwings for 15+ years, feet always hurt at the end of the day. I’m a big guy , 6″2, 280 lbs, on my feet 13-15 hours a day, 7 days a week. I decided to give Thorogood a try, man am I glad I did!!! There is no break in period with these boots, simply comfort, and plenty of arch support. Bye Bye foot pain!! Wished I had tried these several years ago, try them, you will not be sorry…

  37. Ryan

    Top notch boots. I have worn all types and brands of boots and I am very satisfied with my Thorogoods my only regret is not wearing them sooner. They are comfortable from the beginning and only get better with time. It only took about 4 days to break them in fully and now they are like gloves. These boots are excellent do yourself a favor and buy them you won’t be disappointed

  38. Tony Groll

    Excellent boots!
    Way more comfortable than I expected a work boot to be. All day comfort.
    Glad I found them.
    As a side note, I take a size 12, but I had to go to an 11.5 with these.

  39. Toki

    Amazing boot, quick break in, looks great, works hard. Thorogood always comes through.

  40. Troy Fuqua

    Amazing boot, quick break in, looks great, works hard. Thorogood always comes through.

  41. Mark

    My second pair. Best boot period. Great Company.


    Satisfied as usual! Thorogoods arrived on time, with their always soft and comfortable uppers, and solid, sturdy, and cushiony soles!! Can’t beat em’!

  43. Ryan

    I’m back after 3 weeks. This is HONEST TO GOD the most comfortable pair of boots I’ve ever worn. I’m an iron worker/ fabricator, on my feet all day everyday. Come home and farm on the side. This is the first pair of boots I’ve ever owned, that I don’t rush to peel off at the end of the day.

  44. Ed Genna

    First pair there great.

  45. Ryan

    I usually don’t give reviews, but I felt inclined this time. Do yourself a favor and just do it!!! I’m a fabricator/ iron worker. On my feet 16 hours a day. They feel like house slippers.

  46. Matthew Muise

    Amazing boots. I had 3 pairs of Ariats before these and I am never going back!

  47. Keith

    Union ironworker, these boots blow the vietnamese Irish setters out of the water. Do yourself a favor buy them. I’ll never buy another boot for work

  48. Glen Griffith

    Fantastic boot right out of the box. Waffled a bit for a couple of weeks on price, but in the end, they are worth every penny!

  49. Michael Pariseau

    These boots fit great, are comfortable, break-in is quick, and they look great. Most of the time they have plenty of grip. I’m in Minnesota so everything is covered in ice in the winter. These soles are clearly not made for ice. Other boots I have had are better on ice than these. Other than that no complaints.

  50. Tyler Tripp

    I started wearing this boot a few years ago and I am on my third pair, I work in HVAC in Illinois and am on my feet all day, the best choice I have made is switching from my trusted Redwings to Thorogoods. I am sold on these boots. The leather is very soft right out of the box, and with the Moc toe it has pleanty if room for thicker socks in the winter. I recommend these boots to everyone!

  51. Andrew Pinneo

    Second pair I’ve owned and I’m sold. I love them and won’t purchase another boot. Keep America great and buy union made goods!

  52. Jason M Deese

    This was my 6-7 pair of thorogood boots 4201 moc toes and have always been a fan but this pair for some reason has had stitches come loose and I have contacted the store I bought them from ( boot barn) but it’d I return them I didn’t get a real answer as to when I would get them back..

  53. Chase Tone

    I’m a union plumber, on my feet countless hours throughout the workweek. These are THE ONLY boot I will ever buy. Period. Comfy right out of the box and well worth the price, and they are made by union brothers and sisters. What more can you ask for?

  54. Andy Tarter

    There is an uncomfortable spot right before the little toe where a bunch of layers of leather and stitching come together. I went from width D to EE and they stopped wearing holes in my feet. Buuut…now they’re broken in and too wide. I wear em every day and comfortable w extra insoles.

  55. Paul

    This is my first pair of Thorogood boots, They are the most comfortable boots I’ve ever had , like wearing slippers . I install commercial duct work and I’m on my feet all day. This will be the only boot from now on.

  56. Dan

    This is my first pair of Thorogoods and they are pretty great. The leather is soft and no real break in period. They are comfortable right out of the box. Also are lighter than my last pair of boots so thats a plus also.

  57. curtis fierro

    these are a great fitted boot, I definitely recommend buying these ones
