  1. Dennis Luftig

    I was searching for a new pair of boots that had some traction. I was looking on Amazon, and some of the reviewers mentioned this brand in very positive ways. I found my size on another online store, and I am very happy with my purchase.

  2. Wild Bob

    Best boots I’ve ever owned! Never wearing anything but Thorogoods ever again.

  3. Jesse

    Absolutely love these boots. Only reason I dropped stars is because they discontinued the 6 in ones and also discontinued 4E. I get these through the VA buying my boots and Insoles every year because of injuries I sustained while serving. I tried fitting into the 3E and they were just to tight. So this round of boots ive been forced to go with another brand since Thorogood decided to not make my size anymore. Other than that, if they have your size they are great boots that will last and are comfortable with minimum to no break in.

  4. Larry

    I will buy nothing else no break in time recommend to everyone

  5. Cory D Smith

    Absolutely love these boots. The quality is excellent and the color is exactly what I was looking for in an everyday boot. The more they break in the better they become.

  6. Ian

    Great boots very comfortable

  7. Paul McAllister

    Best boots out there, I’ve worn plenty of different brands. switched to Thorogoods 3years ago, and Im hooked, I won’t wear anything else. I’ve resoled my Heritage 8” twice in 3 years. This is Quality leather!! And quality boots. I’m buying another pair just to have 2!!!

  8. David Mendoza

    Boots are comfortable I just ordered the wrong size, so there loose on my feet. I need to double up the socks #local433satisfied

    5 stars. Fantastic boots. Fit true to size in length and width. Exceptionally comfortable and quick break in. The sole is great in wet conditions. Couldn’t be happier.

    My first pair of Thorogood boots. These replaced the Res Wing Moc Toe boots that I usually buy. Quit Red Wings because the quality of last pair wasn’t good. Now I wish I had tried Thorogood long ago. Great boots

    Good boots….however, I typically wear the 8″ moc toe but due to the amount of hot work I do I decided to try the round toe model since the moc toe stitching would burn up and the toes would eventually open up. The fit isnt the same as I’m used to and I will almost definitely switch back to the moc toe sooner than later. I do feel that the quality of materials, construction and attention to detail has dropped a bit in the last few years though. A bit disappointing, but times are changing. Still a very good pair of boots and I will continue to buy them over other competing brands

  11. Brandon T Mack

    Been wanting these boots for a couple years, finally brought a pair, and now I’m mad i havent brought a pair sooner. These are actually the best boots I’ve owned ever, I wear them for fashion now because of how good they look, but soon as I scuff em up good ill wear them as work shoes (what i intentionally bought them for), then will buy another pair for personal style. my new go to shoe.!!!

  12. Dan

    My first pair of Thorogood boots. Lifelong carpenter that wore another major brand. I wish I would have known about Thorogood years ago. I love these boots. Great quality, good price.

  13. Broda M.

    Had my current pair for a few years bouncing between shop work and now construction type work, absolutely love them. Cant wait to buy my next pair.

  14. Steve Lampel

    These are the best everyday boot I have ever owned! Amazingly comfortably, extremely well made and they look great! Thorogood makes great, American made, union made boots!

  15. Ernest F Johnson

    Great boots! Just what I was looking for!

  16. Jeff

    So far, the most comfortable work boots I’ve ever had. Glad I took the advice of co – workers who already owned Thorogood boots.

  17. Caleb

    I have a pair of safety toe pull-on boots and really liked the quality. So I bought a pair of 8″ non safety toe lace up and they seem to be every bit as well made.

  18. Chandler C

    Love these boots! Very comfortable and arguably the nicest quality of construction and materials out there. Thanks Thorogood USA for the awesome product!

  19. Frank Williams

    I am proud to be able to purchase an American made, high quality, reasonably priced boot from an employee owned company.

    This is my 5th pair of Thorogood boots and I can’t imagine buying any other brand. I work in construction so my boots need to be comfortable and provide me with protection. These boots do both very well and the outsoles lasts at least 50% longer than the other brands that I have worn in the past.

    I used to have my boots resoled, however buying new boots is so affordable I just buy a new pair. I wear them until they are about 90% worn then I donate them to my local church to be passed along to someone less fortunate than me.

  20. John Selnekovic

    These boots are great albiet one thing. The white trim on the top of the boot is pulling off. But very comfortable

  21. Richard

    I work on concrete at an automotive engine plant as a quality engineer running around all day and my feet were just simply beat down at the end of the day. I researched many pairs of wedge -style boots and went to a local work boot store and tried on many that I read about. This boot is simply the best thing that I have worn. I suffered back and leg pain everyday along with my feet being worn out as well and within two weeks, the pain just about disappeared. It isn’t magic, it is just that these are very well constructed boots engineered to perform and they are made in the USA.

    I will be buying another pair to rotate between the two pair. Thank you for your attention to detail, high quality materials and American craftsmanship.

  22. Doyle Dugger

    Great boots

  23. Matt

    5 stars??? More like 50 stars!

    These are the most comfortable pair of anything I’ve put on my feet. I finally broke down (literally and figuratively) from my old Red Wings. Loved the RWs and they’re great boots, but after 6-years decided to change it up a little.

    I’ve never been happier with a pair of boots. I wear these everywhere I can now and actually look forward to putting them on in the morning and don’t want to take them off at the end of the day.

    After standing around on oil rigs, walking around concrete, and just generally being on my feet for 12, 16, 20-hours a day, these things make it tolerable.

    Truly a great product. They’re well priced and worth EVERY DAMN PENNY!

  24. Bill Dombi

    I got a pair of these 2 weeks ago. I needed new boots because my old chinese boots were hurting my feet.
    I had really bad heal pain.
    In 2 weeks the heal pain is almost gone! These are my favorite boots ever!
    and probably cost less then a trip to the foot doctor.

  25. Tony

    I’m three weeks in and these boots have been the most comfortable pair I’ve ever owned. I’ve had to wear boots every working day, for the last ten years in the trades. The owner of the store I bought mine from helped a great deal. The boots were initially very tight under the “beef roll”, which is what the owner called them. The owner took the boots in the back, hammered on the beef rolls, and brought out some extremely comfortable boots. He topped them off with some added arch support. As long as these boots last longer than a year, then these boots are my new favorite.
