Thorogood updates their American Heritage boot. The wedge outsole offers greater cushion and durability that previous models, plus slip-resistance to keep you sturdy. The leather upper and classic laces gives a nod to the fact that you can work hard and still look sharp.Electrical Hazard Rated

Box from Thorogood has an American flag on it. I know this has no relevance to the boots fit/construction, but I smiled like a small child opening a package on Xmas. God bless America!
I will say that I have a long, flat, narrow foot. For those men out there who share my pain of trying to find B width boots, you know our options are very limited. I've been through 8 pairs of red wings, and countless other brands. My favorite pair of red wings are not made anymore, so again I hit the internet to find something I won't die in after working 12+ hours a day.
I wear a 12 B in red wings, and ordered the same in these Thorogoods. My first impression was they might be a little long, but definitely couldn't go down 1/2 a size. So I'd say they are fairly true to size. These are the first pair I've ordered that aren't steel toe, so I can't compare with my other boots since I can't check to see where my toe truly sits in my steel toes.
As far as the narrow width, I'd say it's spot on. If you have narrow feet you know that all boots look a little funky when laced tightly since the gap between the two halves is generally pretty close together. Unfortunately, that has not changed in these boots. Honestly I don't care what they look like, so long as they fit. Little bit snug around the pinky toe area and the widest part of my foot, but that is fine in new boots. They will stretch, and I'd rather they be a little snug, than too loose and blistery.
The soles and construction/stitching all seems to be very similar to what you'd expect from any other real mans work boot. My ariats, red wings, and now these, are all pretty similar. The color is ok I guess. Honestly I wish they made a black boot with a dark sole since I'm a mechanic. The red is going to be dark red and the white sole is going to be black over the next week anyway, so I guess I shouldn't complain.
I will continue to wear these and update this review down the road a bit when I've had a real chance to give them hell at the shop. So far I'd say if you're on the fence about laying down a days worth of pay on some red wings, you might want to order these and take the old lady out for some Big Macs instead. If you have narrow feet like me, these are a very highly recommended boot, and now I'm seeing why.
Update: After wearing these every other day (I alternate boots), these have broken in very well. Soles are of course no longer white, and the orange of the leather has darkened with daily exposure to oil. They’ve molded to my feet pretty well. The one thing I have noticed is that my right boot, on the outer edge of my foot just before the pinky toe, does rub where the edges of all the stitching meets. Isn’t so bad it causes a blister, but when you wear them all day, it definitely turns my skin red and a bit sore. Not sure what the fix would be, but they’re well broken in, so it’s either just a defect in this boot, or my right foot is weird. Never experienced this with any other boot brands, so I’m guessing it’s the boot itself.
The soles are extremely comfortable and these boots are nice and light. I work easy 12 hrs a day, and these are still my favorites. Minus the one spot that rubs, I get home and my feet aren’t tired. Concrete can do a number on you after a long day, but these boots sure help with that.
I had a medium width previously and sent them back for a EE width.
The width fit well, but the part of the boot where the tongue creases and attaches to the rest of the boot where it flexes when you walk was just pinching my feet too badly to be comfortable.
These are very well made and good looking boots. Unfortunately they were just too uncomfortable for my foot.
These are very similar to the redwing 877. I have those as well. If I could have saved the $280 and just bought these I would have. They 877's have the same look as these, but killed my feet. No way any normal person could make it through a full work day (if you actually work or stand) in 877's. Thorogoods are the way to go.
I tried 1/2 size less than my athletic shoes as what some reviews had suggested and the fit is like a glove.
- Super comfortable for long periods of time
- Comes in extra wide widths
- Made in the USA!
- Rugged yet stylish. I receive frequent compliments on these boots.
- Not at all water resistant. A heavy rain soaks right through the leather within minutes (not just at the seams).
- I'm not a huge fan of the US flag tag. I would have preferred something more subtle.
