Comfortable boot, fit as expected
They fit perfectly and are light weight.
I fixed the original pair myself with safety wire and silicon and are now being used as homework boots.

    In early October I had surgery for a broken ankle. I ordered these boots in mid November because I had the cast removed and the doctor said I needed good ankle support boots or I would have to wear a walking cast until the ankle strengthened. These have been the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. I wear them all the time now and my feet and ankle get much less tired than they ever have. I am on my feet a lot of the time and I would recommend them to anyone who is on thier feet a great deal of the time. I am going to order a second pair so that I can swith back and forth and they will last much longer.

    These boots seem to be true to size for me. Like another reviewed mentioned, the eyelets extend more towards the toe than the picture indicates.

    The problem for me was the zipper gusset. It's not big enough to put the boot on without unlacing, which is the whole point behind getting a side zip boot. My old (different brand) side zip boots don't have that. I returned them because of this. Other than that they seem well made. I guess the gusset improves the waterproofness if you are concerned with that.

    The boot I received does not look exactly like to boot pictured here. The eyelets come down closer to the toe.
    I don't mind but I think the image should match the product!

    I needed a zip-side boot that fit, and these were the ones! 9.5 M = 9.5 M! "Made in the U.S.A."makes them that much more appealing!

    boots are light wgt and very comfortable no need for a break in period. I would probably buy this boot again when these wear out.

    I needed a zipper type boot and I searched just about all brands. I came across these boots and ordered it. I have not ordered boots before and thought I would take a chance. When I got the boots I was happy with the product. I began wearing these boots everyday that I worked and it has held up very well. I have not had any problems with them. I have put them through rain and the cold weather and they are still going strong. I have had them about 8 months now. I am very impressed and I will purchase another pair if these ever run out. The only thing that is not positive is they make your feet hot in the summer time. It is summer time and they are Gortex lined and I am ok with that. I would definitely recommend these boots.

    very comfortable, gives great ankle support. great traction. feet don't get all stanky. I use them as work boots and I walk on road finish concrete at least 3 hrs per shift. only downfall i have found is the zipper. this is the second pair i have purchased. the first pair i ripped the zipper in half about half way down. to the boots credit I will admit to an abusive zip at the time of zipper failure. I still liked the boots so much I tried to get them repaired. I failed in that. The cobbler has obviously been killed off by progress. I fixed the original pair myself with safety wire and silicon and are now being used as homework boots. I would like to see amazon sell the pair w/o the zipper also, as i would buy those if offered.

    I have had many pairs of uniform boots over the years. Mostly a size 9 or 8 1/2. These boots even at a 8 1/2 are still very big on my feet. They are not true to the size. Paying shipping only to have to return them, order new ones, pay shipping again, wait again. Makes them a pain to order. I'll re update when the new pair arrives
    UPDATE
    I work 24 hours on and 72 off. I take excellent care of my boots. After 5 months I'm here tonight at work and just learned the inside of my right heel has been completely torn apart and ripped. It is past 30 days and I can't return them. If the seller does not replace or repair them I will never buy from this seller or thorogood boots again. Extreamly poor quality. I wish I can give 0 stars
