    I wanted to give five stars so badly bc I love the look of these boots and the fact they are made in the USA. These are my first pair and I have had them for 3 weeks a month. I have only been able to wear them half days and luckily still have my Red Wing Irish Setters that I have been wearing for the last 3 years. They are still fully functional but the soles are completely out of traction and the insole was recently replaced with a $20 pair of Dr. Sczhols. They have been helping me with the break in process. The Thorogoods left boot has been causing me really bad pain on the top and side of the big toe. This is my only complaint and I am determined to break these boots in bc i know they are going to be great and they are quality built and look to be a pair of boots that are going to last a few years at least. Pain in big toe please go away!! No pain no gain💪🏻👍🤘🏻

    Worn American made name brand boots for 30+ years. Never had a real bad bummer. When I did I would send the boot(s) back to the factory.
    As far as this pair is concerned, excellent leather, excellent craftsmanship. Damned good boots.

    These boots are amazing! They look great and feel great. They were comfortable from the day I put them on. There was a slight break in period just to get the leather slightly softened up I’m the toe box. That only took a few days though. Definitely will be my go to boot from now on!

    Great boots… These are my second pair. Didn’t need a new pair (because they’re made so well), I wanted another pair (because they’re made so well). USA!!!

  5. Steven S

    Great boot but a bit disappointed on the insole. Insole is not comfortable and I had to swap them out to Pro Timberland insoles. For the price of the boot I would expect a more comfy thicker insole other than that it’s a great looking boot and great quality.

  6. Geoff

    Bought my first pair after reading reviews and I’m very happy with them, use them in all kinds of conditions like dirt concrete and mud, just clean them off and oil them and your good to go.

    I’ve been wearing these shoes for several weeks now and I have to say I’m disappointed. The soles of these shoe squeak on any remotely smooth surface. I believe it’s the material these soles are made from that causes the issue. I’ve stopped wearing them as the noise they create is distracting to my coworkers. Such a shame, they’re great looking shoes.

    I have had all the brands such as Whites, Danner, Redwing(heritage)…etc. I thought I would give these a try and to say the least the right side and top of my foot hurts really bad especially my pinky toe. I walk at least 5-10 miles a day for my job(grading). These have had plenty of time to break in. Not to happy with my purchase. I have the right size as well.

  9. Patrick

    great boot no brake in period. The only problem is the laces don’t stay tied

  10. Jesse Jaramillo

    Great boots, cant beat them. This is my 1st pair actually, but the comfort and quality blow my old boots out of the water.

    2 pair I’ve owned and the 1st pair was perfect, NO PROBLEMS, 5 stars! this pair I purchased 2 weeks ago. Love the color! My reason for the 3 stars on this pair, is a complaint of the stitching is on my left foot boot at the beginning of the toe box. If I put my feet together and look down, it is VERY noticeable that the stitching is off. My right boot fits fine; no issues. My problem is with the left boot. Because the stitching is off, the leather material that meets the toe box apply’s EXTREME pressure to the knuckle of my big toe causing me excruciating pain during my work day . I have worn these for a week already I know from my previous pair they are broken in. I decided to look even closer and feel on the inside of the shoe where the pain occurs. I noticed the stitching on the inside is not covered and looks to be double stitch probably causing friction. I also noticed that there is an overlap of leather material in that section causing the leather to either push out or in more. Either way, the stitching is off when looking down at the boots while on your feet and the overlapping leather material is noticeable by a bulge sticking out of the inside of the boot where my big toe knuckle is. I feel I have a defected left boot, but who knows…. Thorogood?? Can I get a replacement left boot?? hahaha

    Second pair I’ve had in 6 months first pair had a defect but had no problem getting them swapped out other than that so far has been a great boot

  13. Oscar Reyna

    Great looking boot. Very little break-in time. Insole is really comfortable. Fit is slightly bigger, which is good. Plenty of toe room. Definitely would buy again.

  14. Bobby

    Great boot. No break in time, able to wear right out of box. Like another customer stated,the tongue bunches up a bit,and the toe area wore out faster than my Diehards,I guess I could have put that toe guard, other than that , I’m on my second pair and they are generally a great boot

  15. Donnie

    No complaints here. I really like them.

  16. Alex Castillo

    So far so good. Enjoying them.

  17. Stanley Hase

    After having tried just about every boot known to man I am so glad I found Thorogood. In 2013 I was struck by a vehicle and thought I would not be able to work on my feet again. After surgery and years of recovery I tried the Moc Toe 804-6201 on. I immediately felt the support and comfort that these boots provided. I have been wearing these boots for almost a year now travelling the USA and Mexico building concert staging in all types of weather from below zero in Aspen Colorado to 118 degrees in the desert of Baja Mexico. These boots have never let me down, I not only recently picked up a second pair but the guys on my crew also picked some up and they all love them too! Thank you Thorogood

    Best boots hands down. I have wore more brands than I can name over the last 30 years.
    Comfortable out of the box.
    I install Data and Voice networks. I go from construction sites to office environments in the same day.
    So I need to have a pair of boots that can be wore in any condition.
    I get many compliments from my customers and co workers.

    Overall the craftsmanship on these boots is fantastic. I have never had so many inquiries or compliments on a pair of boots! They are a little stiff the first few days but that’s to be expected. Now, at 2 weeks in though they are unbelievably comfortable, with a cushioned foot bed that rivals the comfort of some of my NB running/walking shoes I own. The only thing I wonder, is if there needs to be so much tongue material? There’s quite a bit of bunching and overlap, that surprisingly has not been a discomfort but it does seem unnecessary and aesthetically doesn’t look as clean as the flatter lying tongues on other brands of US boots I’ve owned. Still a 5 star purchase….An 8″ pair of these black moc-toes would be sweet also, if anyone is listening!….My final thoughts are, the American pride in workmanship is clearly evident so a shout out to the employees, well done!

  20. DEV

    Second pair in a year. Great quality, made in the US and made with care. I get compliments on these boots all the time. They look good, feel good, and hold up to a jobsite.

  21. Johnny Segal

    Best boot I’ve ever purchased. I love it

  22. DT

    First pair of Thorogoods. So comfortable. Get compliments all the time on how they look. I’m a believer in the brand. Having a hard time finding Thorogoood boot care products, but I’ll keep looking. Would love to get my hands on some Thorogood Mink Oil!

  23. Jameson Mallow

    I honestly have never had such a great pair of boots. From the minute I put them on I knew they were quality footwear. I absolutely love them. Best thing I’ve done for my feet.

  24. J. G.

    I’ve been buying USA made work boots for over 20 years. Thorogood boots break in easier and last longer. These boots will continue to protect your feet while feeling like you have you favorite tennis shoes on. Great summertime boots and look great too.

  25. Oscar cordova

    American Union made! How can you go wrong? Best material and best craftsmanship.
    I love my American boots.

  26. Scott Little

    I love these boots. First Thorogoods I have ever worn. Fit perfect out of the box and have been comfortable since day one. Only issue I have is my left foot clicks when I walk. I can’t find anything wrong with it though, hopefully it’ll disappear after a few weeks of breaking in.

  27. Russ

    Always buy American if you can find it. Thank you for supporting the American work force and workers unions. They look wonderful, they’re tough and comfortable.

  28. Bryan Miller

    Great leather and craftsmanship! It is taking me awhile to break them in. It is my fourth pair, but these are black.

  29. Tom Carambia III

    Best boots for what I use them for. Comfortable and no brake in period. Construction and heavy equipment mechanic

  30. Ross

    Awesome boots very comfortable and very we made with the money. If you condition them and break them in wearing then loose for a week the fit like a glove and very comfortable. I have worn them for 3 years all the time the soles just getting worn out. I wear
    boots for work and casual best boots ever.

  31. Tony M

    My uncle worked for the USPS for many years, and throughout his 30+ year career, he wore Thorogood shoes as part of his uniform. Even though he is now retired, he still purchases the same model of shoes that he wore on his postal route because he was so impressed with them over the years. While visiting with him recently, he spoke so highly of Thorogood’s shoes that I decided I had to try them out for myself, and I’m very glad that I did. I purchased these boots locally at Macon Boots, and I have been extremely happy with them. These boots are comfortable right out of the box, despite being a little stiff. After a few days, the stiffness goes away, and they really shine. The soles have a good soft feel, the leather is supple and of high quality, the craftsmanship is excellent, and the boots look and feel very well built overall. This is my first pair of Thorogoods, and I wish I had purchased them years ago!

  32. Shawn Burnette

    Simply the best boots I have ever owned. I keep testing them, woods, farm, kitchen and fire and they just keep on surpassing expectations. I wouldn’t even consider anything else.

  33. Chris

    Awesome boots! Get some!

  34. JOSHUA NUTE

    I am currently wearing these boots now and regularly get compliments and questions as to where I bought them. That being said, they are great looking boots. I really like the way they fit and feel after being on all day. They are not too heavy and the leather is top notch. My main gripe however is that they ALWAYS squeak. On concrete, hard floors or anything other than grass or carpet, these shoes squeak. The 2 guys I work with in the job trailer can hear me coming down the sidewalk every day. It has become a running joke. In the office when I visit they know I am coming as well. I cannot find a fix for the non-stop squeaking and it is now to the point, I don’t even want to wear them.

  35. Andrew Jackson

    Best boots ever!!!

  36. BEN CORLISS

    MOST PAINFULL PAIR OF BOOTS I HAVE EVER HAD. RIGHT FOOT, OUTBOARD AT THE SEEM WHERE THE LEATHER ATTCHES TO THE SOLE IS SO AGRIVATINGLY TIGHT THEY COULDNOT BE WORN. I TOOK THEM TO GET STRETCHED AND IT HELPED SOME, I’M WEARING THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME POST STRETCHING WITHOUT THE INNER SOLES, THIS AFFORDS ME A LITTLE MORE ROOM AND A SLIGHTLY MORE COMFORTABLE FIT. THE LEFT BOOT IS GOOD, NO ISSUES. THE RIGHT BOOT HOWVER IS MISERABLE. I OWN MANY PAIRS AND THIS IS THE ONLY PAIR GIVING ME GRIEF. THEY LOOK SHARP BUT THE RIGHT BOOT ISN’T THE SAME AS THE LEFT, POSSIBLY A STICHING ERROR.
    RECOMEND BEFORE BUYING, ENSURE THEY FEEL COMFORTABLE AND GIVE THEM A GOD WALKABOUT IN THE STORE PRIOR TO PURCHASE.

  37. David Meyer

    I bought these boots on April 26th of 2017, my current job is Superintendent and I walk an average of 12000 steps a day. So far these boots are the only boots to last me over a year. At a year and a half old, boots still look great when cleaned and proform very well. I tried Danner, Wolverine and Timberland and so far these boots are the best. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good construction boot or just a great pair of boots to wear with jeans. Break in time was around 2 days, the black leather is still black, stich seams are not pulling a part. I also love the fact that they are made in America. I am a Thorogood customer for life.

  38. Phillip

    Love mine!

  39. Chris

    Overall fit is great, same as the other pairs of Thorogood’s I’ve owned!
    This could just be the pair I bought, but the black leather boots seem a bit more stiff than the other brown 814-4200 pairs I’ve owned. They just took an extra day or to break in.

  40. Dave Ham

    Love them the leather is very comfortable.if you haven’t tried them yet you need to get a pair, you will not be sorry.
