Wow, I used to buy boots just about like these (very close) from red wing for years and they discontinued them 10 or 12 years ago. While window shopping on Amazon for boots I came across these. They even look (almost) exactly like the ones I wore for 20 years or so. Now I bought a pair of these Thorogood boots (got them UPS yesterday) and I am impressed. Just like the other ones, they were very comfortable the first time I put them on. No sore feet because they feel broke in already.The size I have worn for years (12 EEE) is what I ordered and they fit perfectly.
This may sound like a put up job, but I am a real customer and and I couldn't be happier. I have had problems with my feet since I was 20. I am 6'3" and way 260 and have worked in construction (masonry and concrete) since I was 16. I am 57 now so I have gone through some boots in my time. These boots are good, next payday I am ordering another pair just in case they discontinue them.

I don't want to toot my own horn but "beep beep" I am writing this as kind of a pat on the back for ordering the most comfortable things i have ever put on my feet. in all actuality the last boots I owned were torture chambers for my feet made by Chippewa Boot Company, not only was wearing the other boots so agonizing and a terrible experience but they fell apart after 4 months.

These boots, these boots my friend are a pleasure. After my last encounter I was scared to order boots online, but these boots held me close like a mother to a newborn babe and let me know everything was going to be okay. If these boots could talk their voice would sound like Barry White.

I've had them all, Carolina, Red Wings, Timberlands, Carharts, Wolverines, Caterpillars and these are the best boots I've ever owned. This is my third pair of them and as long as Thorogood continues to make this model, I'll never own another boot...

Super soft leather and very soft sole. All the parts on this boot are made in the USA, unlike Redwing who started importing there soles to save case. Shame on you Redwing. This is the MOST comfortable boot you can buy. I have tried them all. I keep raving to my friends and classmate how awesome this things are. Best boot made regardless of country. But proud they are made here. Feels like wearing running shoes, very soft!

These are very nice boots. I have been wearing Redwings for years and just tried Thorogoods as American made Redwings have been getting harder to find.

I normally wear a size 10 EE, and ordered this size for this boot. They were too big and I exchanged them for a 9.5 EE, which fit well.

If you never exchange and item that is actually sold by Amazon the process is excellent. They shipped out a new pair immediatley (before recieving the old ones back) and then provided a return shipping label and a pick-up at your house option. I was very pleased with this.

The insole in these boots is quite comfortable. The leather is a bit softer than some other boots, The steel toe toe-box is plenty big, and wide enough at the rear to not cut into the sides of my feet. That is hugely important in a steel-toe boot.

I would prefer these (and all boots) come with the excellent kevlar laces that are available today. The cheap nylon ones provided never hold up well, particularly around welding operations.

American and union made thats an unbeatable combination!!! Oil them up with some good boot oil and a week or two later they feel like a pair of sneakers. great for walking on concrete. I will never waste my money on Red Wings again.

These are the very best. No break in required. Straight out of the box they're ready for an 8 hour day. Very reasonably priced compared to the competition and they're made in the U.S.A. It's a win/win all around.

These boots fit as expected. They are also the most comfortable work boots I've ever owned. I've had Redwings that fatigued my feet; Chippewas that literally fell apart with minimal use after 1.5 years; and Timberlands that felt like bricks tied to my feet. The leather on these boots is soft but firm, the padded insole is nice and there is also addtional padding under the insert. I used to think if work boots didn't hurt my feet, they were comfortable, but these Thorogoods are actually really comfortable. The seams are all triple stitched which leads me to believe they will hold up, but we'll have to wait and see about that. They aren't too expensive, for American made, and are less expensive than some comparable work boots made in China. Ive only had these boots for a few days, but overall I am very happy with them and would recommend them to anyone looking for a comfortable ASTM certified boot. We'll have to wait and see about durability, but hopefully being American made still means quality.

I was dead set on buying Red Wings before I read the reviews for these boots. I decided I'd give these a try because of the popular reviews and testimonies saying how some people switched from $300 Red Wings to these. My only complaint is the safety toe goes back a little too far so it doesn't bend so much at the toes. I took the insole out and gave my toes a little more room, and problem solved. It's funny because I work construction and the other 3 guys in my crew got new boots the same day, after a 75 hour work week paycheck haha. Two got Rocky and one got Red Wing boots. I was the only one not in severe pain by the end of the day. I love my Thorogoods and will eventually get a pair of Moc toe waterproofs as well.

I am very pleased with these boots. They are quite comfortable and best of all, they are made in the USA.
