    Comfortable from the first wear, love them!

    These boots are very comfortable and well made. They have been fantastic so far, through a Wisconsin winter as a mail carrier. As the other Postal employee mentioned, the only issue is the sole. In just a couple months, it is significantly worn down.

    These boots would be perfect if they:
    1) were made with a repairable/replaceable or just longer lasting (1+ year) sole
    2) maintained USPS approval

    I love my boots! The only problem is the soles wear out within 3 months of walking on concrete & asphalt. A postal workers dream is comfort & lasting longer on the soles. Besides, my boots look brand new (exception being the soles).

    Best boot ever. I have worn Thorogood boots throughout my entire 30 year law enforcement career. I also tried others but always maintained at least one pair of Thorogood as my main pair. I found them to be the most comfortable. The 2 pair of Soft Streets I purchased during my last 4 years of employment were waterproof during their approximately 1-2 yr life span. I plan on purchasing another pair of 8 inch Soft Streets now that I’m retired. They are comfortable right out of the box as all of my other Thorogood boots have been. I have not had any negative issues with Thorogood products.

    Purchased in mid January from Skaggs, the sole is already starting to separate from the leather and feels like no insulation in the toe. These are also not waterproof at all, there is a leak somewhere by the bottom eyelet. For the price, you would think they would last for more than a month. Total junk.


    Purchased boots because they are american made from a long standing company and fit the specifications I was in search of. Purchased them February of this year and only wore a few months when several of the eyelets failed and came out. I contacted Thorogood about the issue and they wanted me to return the boots at my cost for inspection. I am happy with the comfort of the boot so declined and ended up paying $74 to replace all the failed eyelets. Because they are insulated, I did not wear the boot again until this fall when I went for a walk in the woods on a rainy day. After 2 hours of walking my feet were soaked through.

    The good- Warm, Comfortable
    The bad- Not waterproof as advertised, poor quality for the price, tong too short for the boot.

    Will not purchase Thorogood again .
