After reading other reviews of this boot, I noticed that folks said that the size runs a bit large. Some people were ordering a size smaller and saying that they were glad they did. I normally wear a size 11. I work a good 9-10 hours on my feet in construction on hard surfaces all day. That being said, I wear additional insoles to absorb the bashin my feet take. Not fancy prescription insoles, just ones ya get at the pharmacy. So, I thought a size 11 D plus my insoles would be fine. Nah. Too tight unfortunately. I called Zappos that day and asked to return them for a size 11.5 EE. They showed up the next day, before I even got the chance to return the 11 D's! I've now worn my size 11.5's for a week and they are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. When I got em, I greazed them up real good and there has been no break-in pains or blisters. The leather is beautiful while still being super durable and high quality. American made for American workers...I know I made the right choice. Thank you Thorogood and big props to Zappos!

I am a plumber so I am always on my feet. (also type 1 diabetic so its so important to take care of my feet). Looks don't really matter to me for a work boot, but I loved how good looking this boot was. I usually never do a steal toe, but i thought I could give this boot a try (had a little doubt due to the steel toe) but I actually really love this boot. The toe didn't bother me at all and they held up nicely even though I am so incredibly hard on my work boots. I will definitely buy this brand again.

Bought these for my very picky husband. We've been through similar styles of Keens and Timberlands but these have definitely proven his favorite. Fit was good. Did complain that they felt the heaviest of the three. These boots aren't necessarily attractive to look at but they do their job. Thus far these have held up the best of any recent work boots.

Nice lookng boots, but the seam on the top of the toe hurt the top of my foot the second I put it on, even before lacing up. There is no way this is going to break in if I wore it for a while and would wear through my skin if I walked for more than 5 minutes most likely. Too bad I liked them otherwise. Had to return.

Excellent boots!! You can't beat the feel of real leather, and these are American made. I wear special insoles due to foot conditions, and these are very comfortable. They seem to run large, so I ordered mine 1/2 size smaller than what I normally wear (12). I'd recommend these to anyone who wants a nice work boot.

I took off 1star due to the top eyelet.Why have speed hooks then have to stop at the top to Feed lace through hole.? Doing this you lose tightness and have to relace around hook againI have a narrow foot and wear double socks with an orthotic and the med width fits good.I would say they fit narrow.

I wanted a work boot that not only works like you want a work boot to Not only do these fit that bill, they are so comfort I sometimes forget to change out of them at the end of the day. They are really well-made, and have a rugged look - a look they deserve completely. I highly recommend them, and, personally, was really happy to see they offer widths. The EE makes a nice difference, for those of us with a wider forefoot.

This shoe is well made and high quality. Love that it's in the USA! Styling and comfort is also awesome. Seriously, I was able to wear them and start painting all day and my feet felt great. I appreciated the former reviews that said get a size smaller than you typically do for most shoes. I got a 7 instead of an 8. Worked great.

I have worn these boots daily for work for about a month. Short break-in period with supreme comfort. They hold a shine well. I replaced the laces with a thinner kevlar lace as the one that it comes with is just too bulky. As a 6" boot, i was surprised how my pants rarely get hung up on the edges jumping in and out of the truck. They even keep pretty good traction walking through Class B foam. Pretty strong ankle support too. No hot spots felt that I usually find in most other boots such as the top of my arch or at the navicular. Time will tell how well the stitching and tread hold up, but I'm pretty impressed thus far. Easily the most comfortable duty boots I've worn.

One of the best pair of boots I'v ever purchased. ((Get one full size smaller! )) Top noch craftsmanship and leather quality with attention to details. Gets my 5 stars. I get many compliments when I wear them. They look great with jeans for going out and they are very functional if you plan to use them for work. As soon as you get them Use "obenauf heavy duty LP" Boot Barn has them for about $15 or you can pick them up from Amazon. I use it on just about any quality leather good that I own. It portends leather from drying. It does make your leather a shade or two darker which is ok with me!

Had to get these for work, but you could easily wear them beyond just working. Not only are these great quality, they have a great look to them!

one of the best pairs of boots i have ever owned. they took a couple of weeks to break in, but now they are incredibly comfortable and really help with knee pain from working on my feet all day. the leather is super soft and the soles are nice and pliable.

These boots frickin' rule. I'm a mechanic, and I stand on hard concrete floors for 10-12 hours a day. The insole is soft and supportive like a running shoe, the composite safety toe keeps the weight down, and the lace hooks at the ankle make them easier to put on/remove. Plenty of room in the toe box, and the leather upper is flexible enough to accommodate both a summer sock or thick winter sock. All in all, a great work boot! Thanks Zappos!

Don't be surprised if they seem too big at first. After a day of walking in them, I was able to lace them up snugly to my feet. They are still stiff and a little heavy but after two weeks they seem to have broken in nicely and are very comfortable for walking and standing all day.

Great boots. I've only had them a few weeks but it seems like they'll last. They feel overbuilt and tough but are still comfortable. I started with my usual size of 13 but they were too big so I sent them back and got the 12 which is perfect.

Bought these boots for my husband who suffers from knee pain. He was looking for a sturdy work boot that offered comfort, support and a safety toe. He has always worn Red Wings but has not been happy with his last several pairs so decided to try these. He has been very happy with them and likes the side zipper especially well. It appears that the leather is a bit more durable and will remain new looking longer than his other boots. I would definitely recommend the boots.

Great looking boot that takes a good shine and seems to be well made. However, they are extremely uncomfortable. There is significant heel drop which makes to boot feel very much like a dress shoe. There is very little support in the arch and forefoot, which is strange because the insoles are soft and relatively thick. However, when the boots are on my feet they feel hard and unsupportive. Great for ceremonial or dress wear, but I would definitely not recommend them for daily duty or work wear. My feet and back were killing me after wearing these boots for a 12 hour shift.

These boots are awesome, very tough like they should be very heavy but super light and comfortable. I barely had to break them in.

I'm a doctor at a hospital. I'm on my feet all day and generally wear some very comfy shoes (crocs). But crocs don't make a nice going out shoe. I used to wear Dr. Marten's back when they were made in England and still good and decided to try a pair of these. Loved the style and it's been a long time since I had a rugged good looking boot. I love Zappos' return structure so bought several to try on from Keen to Irish Setter. These won easy. I had forgotten how heavy a good boot was and was a bit nervous they'd be stiff or cut in somewhere when I put them on, but it was like a sock with a heavy sole. Super comfy right out of the box. They'll still take some getting used to since I've been in Crocs for so long (my good shoes were a pair of jungle mocs by Merrell). The heft and the sharp heel will take me a bit, but I'll manage. By sharp heel I don't mean cutting into me. I mean there's no roll at the back of the sole like on a pair of crocs so they don't roll quite the same as you walk. They look great with jeans and I am not even remotely above wearing them with some khakis or a sports coat to a formal function.
