    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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…

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
