    Ps if a little tight a shoe stretcher works wonders you can actually stretch a whole boot size and these boots can handle a stretch it takes time out of break in… Hand made American boots man
    . That’s how it went down in the old days fellas.. enjoy..

  2. Kenny

    Instant foot relief going from a boot heel to a boot wedge soul.. very comfortable out of box a little break in period maybe another 2 weeks (have had them about 2 weeks) with a boot stretcher for 2 days 8 hours over night at 16 hours to cut down on break in.. looking forward to my next cold weather pair. To be honest they make people jealous that’s how nice they are plus comfort..

  3. Nick Harrison

    Love the boots. Took a couple of weeks of wearing to break in. Now they’re very boots.

    PRO: Superior 5 Star Quality!
    For me personally, I like the look of the black sole. The sole at the toe box protruding slightly from the upper leather is a great design; alleviates scuffing the front of the boot.
    CON: The leather in the toe box on the right boot is soft, flexible and comfortable. However, the leather in the toe box on the left boot is very stiff, not at all flexible. Thus, the wear time is limited to just 2 to 3 hours, max! Further, this situation extends the break in period, considerably. They certainly are not comfortable after wearing daily for a month. In my opinion the selection of leather chosen, for this pair of boots, in particular area of the boot is not comparable.

    Boots were fantastic as expected! Just wish this model came with a waterproof version. This doesn’t stray my love for this boot company by any means! These is no boot manufacturer’that is better!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    Best damn boots I have had in years. Wore Rocky….went to China, wore Redwing …….same, Then Redback…..wore out every three months……….Glad to have Made in the USA boots again!

  7. Juan

    Right out of the box, these boots performed as advertised. Comfy sole, buttery break-in leather, no pain on the foot. Replaces the laces with some kevlar type and the look was amazing. Definitely recommend these for your next purchase. Onlynif the came in 8” model.

    I have very low arches, I wear them all day and don’t have any pain.
    Best boot I have ever owned and best of all, they are MADE IN THE USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great boots

    I’ve had wolverines and redwings but thorogood takes the win on all levels. A couple complaints is consistency of manufacturing…

    One pair of the wedge boots I had in the past the eyelet for the lace was off alignment pretty bad. Just received another pair and this time the stitching on the toecap of the left boot makes it look like my big toe is on the wrong side and the leather on the tongue is clearly a different type of leather. Very wrinkled and extra soft compared to the right boot. Also the stitching inside the boot ALWAYS puts pressure on the top of my feet just before the big toe begins. I’m a skinny dude with pretty thin feet but it’s a common thing I’ve come across on all pairs of my thorogoods. Still Can’t beat US made..

  11. Nick Hamburg

    These boots were very comfortable from the start. I ordered them online and found them to be true to size. I would not hesitate to buy these boots in the future.

  12. RD Guerra

    Well made and very comfortable.. Very satisfied…

  13. Mike Smith

    Comfortable, relatively light weight with solid lateral stability. Crepe sole is as comfortable as I’ve been told and quiets my presence.

  14. Armando Quintero

    Great work boots. Will not buy anything else.

  15. John DIY guy

    I wanted to purchase a pair of USA made boots and when I found out Thorogood where made in my home state of Wisconsin. My choice was made. I really am happy with this pair of boots. They seemed tight at first and was a little concerned. But after a break in period all is good. I have a desk job in a factory office and don’t use these for work. Basically use these for cutting firewood, any time I am outdoors and any DIY projects in the garage. So happy with these boots I am going to purchase a pair of Thorogood steel toe low height shoes for work. Once my Redwings wear out. No complaints on the Red Wing shoes except they are not made in USA. Sold on the Thorogood brand now.

  16. David Schoenecker

    These boots are fantastic. Comfortable all day long.
    The staff at Silcott`s Shoes went out of their way with fitting and answered all my questions. Brent showed me how to treat the leather and made suggestions on how to keep them clean.
    Over all product and purchase was great.

  17. Dave Retterath

    Absolutely Awesome Boots !!!
    Love The Fit As Well As Look !!!
    Thanks For Making A Great American Made Boot!!!

  18. Joseph Burchardt

    Great pair of boots. I walk 14+ miles a day at work, and needed a good pair of boots, and these have to be the most comfortable pair of boots I’ve ever owned

  19. JJ Falvey

    Been wearing thorogood for a while now . You get what you pay for, a quality boot . I usually wear them for a couple months casually before I bring them into the jobsite. They’re comfortable straight out of the box and are perfect for any scenario

  20. Artie Sanwald

    Went to Thorogoods because they are made here, union made, and my loves his. First time with a wedge sole, should of done that 25 years ago. Comfortable, quality leather and good looking.
    Now the not so good. NOT true to size. What happened to EEE wide work boots. EE is NOT wide by any stretch of the imagination. The junction where the toe cap is stitched to the sides is way too tight. To the point of being painful. No lining inside the boot doesn’t help things. Also the top stitching on the left moc toe cap was stitched wrong so it looks lopsided.
    I’m trying very hard to love these boots, but if they don’t fully break in soon I’m going to be very disappointed.
    Over $200 for a pair of boots should require this much pain to break in. If cost is prohibitive to produce a true EEE wide boot, then at least make the EE size on the wide side.

  21. Nicholas Densley

    These are great, comfortable right away. I work both in the field and the warehouse/lab and my moc-toes fit my needs.

  22. Kendall Andrews

    Very comfortable right off. I like the wedge soles. First time buying a boot by mail I was pleasantly surprised.. Good fit and timely delivery.

  23. Matthew Hardin

    So far so good. Feels good and looks good. I do wish there was another speed lace at the top instead there is a lace hole that makes it slower when tying the laces.

  24. Amanda

    Amazing boots! Any chance of producing this model (black sole) in smaller sizes ? Sizes 5 and 5.5 would be great! The white sole model of this boot comes in size 5 and 5.5 and I love them!

  25. Anthony McIntee

    This is my third pair but first time in this leather. So much loose grain. Right boot is almost entirely loose grain while my crazy horse pair has none. Also was a lump in the ball of my right foot. The loose grain makes the boot very soft, but it just looks terrible. Was really disappointed in this particular pair of boots that I usually love so much.

  26. Trent

    Fantastic boots that I have barely taken off since getting. So comfy …. already looking at my next pair in a different style !


    Well, my first purchase did not go so good. I received my boots but had to return them due to craftsmanship issues. This was my first purchase of thorogood boots and I always bought redwing. I loved the color and looks of the boot. I had one boot that had a wider look than the other and the toe box had bad stitching around the moc toe. I returned them for and exchange. Hopefully the second pair will be nicer with no defects.

  28. Matt

    Great union craftsmanship went into making them and it shows. Just bought my third pair, the first two I got two years of rough use out of them. I’m well pleased

  29. Ryan F

    Very very comfortable… Can’t believe I wasted so much money on garbage boots over the years wish I would’ve found these a long time ago…Good job Thorogood!!

    Another NYC union electrician, bought for same reasons as “Alex”! Kept them because they are super comfortable! Better than the Redwings I bought years earlier! Only nit is the eyelets at top of boot, should have been another set of hooks. Love them!

  32. Juan N. Gonzalez

    It would be great if the American Heritage Black Walnut Moc Toe Dual-Density – Maxwear Wedge 814-4216 was made in a shoe not a boot.

  33. Tom T

    Great boots! Comfortable and great looking. (Local retailer is excellent.)

  34. alex

    I have been wearing Red Wings for over 25 years now…. Bought a pair of these first because its union made, second because its made in the USA! Proud NYC Union Electrician! And proud Owner of my next 25 years of work boots!

  35. Big Samma Jamma

    Boy I sure wish they made these in an oxford SHOE, with a composite toe.

  36. Wes hoyle

    Love these boots!!!by far the most comfortable I’ve ever owned!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
