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.

I have used these several times and they are great as far as the fit. My only concern is that when you are kneeling down, I am hoping that the toe area at the base of the tongue does not start to deteriorate.

I had been wearing a pair of insulated Danner steel toes for about two years prior to getting these Thorogoods. The Thorogood are superior boots in every way. My toes were sore every day in the Danners but only rarely with the Thorogoods. There is zero break-in time unless you count the time they come out of the box all shiny and new when your crew busts you up a little for having clean boots. I am a superintendent building bridges so it is not uncommon to be in the boots for 16 hours a day six days a week. I live in a warm environment and the boots breath okay, as well as you could expect for 80° weather year round. The boots also hold up to water, mud and concrete very well. I probably have a solid 6,000 hours into these boots and everything is holding up great. The soles are starting to thin out a little but the leather, laces and toe are all 100 percent intact.

I could use slightly more toe room, and they fit tightly around the ankle. These boots are stiff when new. Once you decide that you are going to keep them a liberal application of Neatsfoot oil will soften the leather and the boots become very comfortable.

Wow. I was so excited to get these; first because they are really good looking boots but also because of the rave reviews from construction workers. Well, first of all they are no way a full size larger than the norm. I usually wear a men's 8 and ordered a 7 and it's just a bit too small. Second of all, the left boot feels good and the right boot makes me want to cry. It is stiff, it is super narrow. Did I mention how stiff and narrow it is? It feels like it's cutting of my blood supply to my foot as I sit here writing this. It's almost like someone went ahead and wore the left one for a few weeks before I got it. HOWEVER, I wear 2 layers of socks when I work and there is no way I could do that with even the left boot. I can't imagine I have wider feet than the others who wrote reviews, I'm a woman. I've been in and out of the trades since the early '80s and these are a disappointment. But man, are they a good looking boot! How I wish they were the right fit. And also, the sole is a bit heavier than I expected. I don't even think these are comfortable enough to wear just for style- even the left one. I've worn so many different brands(starting with Thom Mcan when they still had stores) and this one sadly is just not for me. I still might try a 7 1/2 and maybe the wider size? I don't know.

These are very comfortable boots that are easy to break in and look great. The side zipper makes them great for easy on and off.

The best boots you will ever own. Comfortable on the first day, super stylish and union made in the USA by an employee owned company. I have had a few pairs of Thorogood boots and they are always A+. they run a size large for me, I am always a 13 in all shoes, but on this pair a 12 was perfect.

I first saw these boots on one of the hosts of Mythbusters. I searched them out and they are made in Merrill, Wisconsin. I have two pairs. I absolutely love them. They have become the only shoe I will wear. They are incredibly well built, sturdy and most importantly wicked comfortable! Since they are re-sole able they will nearly last a life time. Even though they don't feature any air holes they breathe really well. My older pair are a couple years old and don't have any noticeable interior wear and zero odor (well ventilated when worn). Overall...these are A+ boots.

Had this pair for over a year as my daily duty boots. Love the look. Very loose feel in the mid-foot and heel. I had to purchase insoles, the stock ones are terrible for long hours on your feet. Heel wears fast. Toe upper and lower is durable and they still look sharp. These boots are heavy which is the reason I will not get another pair.

Great looking boots but be advised leather can look different on each boot due to skin variations. Runs true to size. What you see is what you get. Good!

Last year the company I work for forced us to buy steel toes/composite toed shoes. I tried them all! I sent back like 10 pairs to Zappos that I did not like. These from Zappos, and a pair of Timberland cheaper ones I bought locally are the only ones I like. My Doc Martins never did break in. They were too heavy. Now this year I need another pair and I bought these since I bought the black ones last years. I guess if you are buying the same pair again this year it says a lot for the shoes. Also, these are the only work boots that I own that I did not need insoles for. That saves some money. These are comfortable, great soles on hard concrete, bullet proof toes, cooler (less sweaty) than my other shoes, look great. The only thing is that they might be a bit overkill for factory desk jockeys like me, but I still love them. The size is right on for my wide size 10 flat feet. I bought 10W, and sometimes I wear 10½ tennis shoes. But, I would not buy these bigger than needed just because they are steel toes. Buy your size. I hope this helps. They take a week or three to break in, but if you skip the top angle eyelet (third one down) they feel great!

I was looking for a boot with a bit more style. Previously I was using Keen Detroit utility shoes, which are low cut and very mountaing hiking shoe looking. The Thorogoods allow me to put on a pair of boots in the morning and not have to change back and forth like I did with the Keen s. They were surprisingly comfortable and got broken in in about two days. They are also quite cool. They will give out about 1/s size. I unusually wear 10.5 or 11 on almost any brand or type of shoe. Ordered these a 10.5. If I were to order again I would get 10 s.

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.
