6" Safety Moc Toe Posted: 8/18/15
Reviewer: Ron from Greater Los Angeles

I purchased these at a local shop in Los Angeles, but the price still worked out to about the same. I was shopping around for something else today and ended up on this page, so I figured that I would share my experience. I had been wearing men's 13W shoes and boots for years in all sorts of styles (military, construction, etc) for 30 years. Most often Danners. But Danners are more expensive than get out these days, and their construction grade boot line-up is lacking. After trying on standard 13 at the local shop, I ordered the 13W safety toe version thinking that this should work. They did not. The standard wide was still way too narrow, and my feet were getting squeezed to the point that the toe was pushing through to the end of the toe box. I am reordered the 14W, and those were much better. A little localized stretching at one small-toe corner to accommodate a bunion, and everything is perfect in the foot world. These are easily as or more comfortable than any other full-leather, safety toe work boot that I have ever worn, including Danners (military and other styles). They seem more sturdy than Red Wings (I have not owned a pair, although I have tried them on many times). I totally forget that they are steel toe if I do not consciously think about it. Overall, one of the best value purchases that I have ever made in shoes. I have read that as one approaches and enters their 50's that their feet often will get bigger, as much as a full size. I would agree with that, up to a point. I recently purchased a pair of Merrill MOAB mid-tops for a Yosemite camping and hiking trip (Valley Floor loop). The Merrill 13W just fit comfortably, but barely, with thin socks. A 14W (unavailable to try on at the time) might have fit even better. Just be aware of this issue as we age.

I bought these for my work boots. I am on construction sites all day everyday. The leather is perfect and cleans up easily. The comfort is amazing! They do run fairly big. I got a half size smaller than normal and I should have gone a full size. I will for sure but another pair of these ever give out on me.

I bought these boots a year ago, and have worn them every, I mean every day, all day since. I work as a motorcycle technician on my feet most of the day. I abuse them hard, and they have held up better than great. The craftsmanship and comfort is unmatched. Take them out of the box put them on and wow in wonderment. After a year the only thing I can say is they are ready for a new sole. If you are thinking of purchasing new boots look no further than these. Buy them. You will not regret it! I wish they had them in all black, I would buy another pair.

Great work boots! Have spent many hours running around job sites and my feet have felt comfortable all day. Didn't take long to break in either.

I work 10 hour days, so I wanted something that breathed well, and would stand up to heavy use. After three weeks (150 hours), I feel like these were a good choice. The leather is softer than expected and had minimal break-in time. These fit wider than some Danner wides and Carolina wides that I tried as well.

These are the worst pair of boots I have worn so far. I work construction, they are uncomfortable and do not hold up when working on grating.

Love these boots - really well made. Only thing is that the size was strange. I wear a mens 10 and in these boots I had to order a size 8! After I figured all of that out I loved them.

Guys - a wonderful boot overall: I truly dig 'em. But they have one glaring soft spot. The soft rubber ring encircling the sole just beneath the stitches gets torn-up almost immediately in real-work situations. It needs to go - like yesterday! Get it gone.

Awesome boot, I love it! I put a "Sole" stiff insert in the bottom after break-in. The soles have great grip yet don't mark anything. They look presentable and I wear them for all occasions, including office work.

Excellent work boot. Others have said in their reviews, as with most work boots, when you first get them the leather is a bit stiff and can be uncomfortable. But rubbing a decent amount of mink oil into the boots made all the difference in the world. And with only one application. Applying a generous amount around the seams will also add to the already offered waterproof feature. I will say that even after being broken in and softened up I would still recommend buying some high quality boot socks. They're a bit expensive but the blisters it saves you from your foot sliding around makes it well worth the extra cash spent. The flat rubber soles give you the feeling of wearing tennis shoes. Or close to it. Very comfortable boot. I've only had them a couple months but to date, if they continue to stand the test of time in my opinion they're worth every penny. You get what you pay for and these boots are easily worth their price. And made in USA. That may sound trivial but you just don't see that very often these days.

Too much boot for the Patrol. I'm use to a slimmer profile. Comfortable to stand in but very rigid around the top which dug into my shin. I tried it out in the vehicle, I kept hitting the gas peddle while braking.

I work outside almost 10 hours a day up in the arctic and these are very comfortable boots. Good ankle support and great padding on the bottom, no need for any extra insoles. I would only hope they make casual low cut shoes more available.

I really liked the style and the "made in USA." These felt comfortable in the house so I decided to keep them. The first time I wore them outside the uppers at the first eyelet area creased downwards and caused unbearable pain in the top of my big toe joint. Unfortunately, I could no longer return them so I am stuck with an expensive pair of boots in the closet.

I obtained a job at the last minute while I was on vacation and required to wear steel toe boots. I searched for a few days for the perfect pair that had zero break in time. I ended up ordering these Thorogood safety toes in a 12 regular width. I wouldn't consider my feet narrow but not wide either. I usually only wear athletic shoes, specifically, Nike Frees. The Nike 12.5 fits me perfectly and that's why I got the 12s in the Thorogood. When I received them they seemed too large and too narrow so Zappos sent me an 11.5 and EE to swap out for free and required me to return the pair I didn't chose within so many days. These boots have been excellent. The first moment I put them on there was a small pressure point where the leather overlapped but after about 10 minutes I didn't even notice. It's been about 4 weeks wearing the boots up to 14 hours a day. I couldn't have asked for a better pair. It is too soon to determine the quality but they're holding up well so far. Plus, they look fantastic! Very pleased and would buy them again as long as I get reasonable life out of them.

Very comfortable work boots. I'm on my feet all day with no complaints. Great style as well, people ask me all the time where they can pick these up.

Truly, one of the only American made boots. All resources, are American. You will not find a better boot. I researched and tried all kinds and brands of boots for years. Indian Larry got me hooked on this boots. Best boot hands down. From riding to working or just a day off. From construction and concrete for 12 hours plus, this boots feel like walking on air. and I am not a little guy either. Very important, it will like all leather, take a week or so to break in. I would suggest work the leather with some mink oil before and a couple days later. Get some Thorlo moderate cushion work shocks and Thorogood shock zone or red insoles. Made a huge difference, night and day. The sock have extra padding in the toe, heel and the ball of the foot. I have tried all kinds of insoles and the red insoles are the best I have found. check out Weinbrenner usa for more info and the rest of the best.

These boots look great and the price is good for composite toe safety shoes, but they are a bit lacking in the comfort department. I need to give them a few weeks of break-in time to he sure. The boots do have a nice gel/foam foot bed that seemed to rival the quality of some Dr. Scholl's inserts I bought.

What a find! A great no nonsense, USA made product, Totally American. Quality with comfort. Does what is needed, being on active footing eight hours plus a day. An investment for work and stylish for "kicking around" afterwards. Great service from Zappos!

After just 4 months of wearing these, they have become extraordinarily uncomfortable in the balls of my foot area. I have tried several different insoles and inserts at my expense with no luck, these boots just wore out. I wear my work boots for 10 hours a day Monday through Saturday, so yes, they got some use, but really, 4 months? I have a bad pronation, and I know this, which is why I try to wear boots!
