I work in residential remodeling. I support any boot company that chooses to build their product in the U.S. As others before me have said, they aren't the most comfortable out of the box. Few quality work boots are. I conditioned mine and took a walk around the block. After a very short distance, the tight spots began to form to my foot. I love the soft strike of the Max Wedge sole, and it seems to have good grip even in wet conditions. I know these boots will last, and I strongly endorse Thorogood for making a quality, hand-built boot.

Right shoe is a bit wider than the left at the heel. Maybe after beak in they’ll tighten up a bit.

Very comfortable boot. Received some compliments. The natural CXL great with jeans and chinos. Not the best color with slacks or a suit. The cork Nitrite sole is not my favorite. I wore it twice and I had my cobbler add a mini lug sole to them. Not noticeable at all. I wanted better traction even if I’m not using this boot as a work boot. The tongue on the boot is not gusseted like the Dodgeville. A deep puddle and your foot will get wet. Other than that it’s a beautiful boot and I made just a few mods.

Love these boots, decided to buy American instead of the Georgia Boot model I'd been wearing for years (decades?)! As a furniture builder and frame maker I spend most of my day on the concrete floor in my shop and good boots are a must. These meet all of my requirements. They're also great for the routine yard work my 1/3 acre lot requires. The leather is more supple than the Georgia Boot and they were comfortable right out of the box, no break in needed.

This boot that is made in the USA is not only very stylish, but is also very comfortable to wear right out of the box. The only downside for me is that the soles are very soft (squishy) and while that is good for comfort, it allows my foot to bend too easily. This may not be a problem for most, as I have very flat feet. I'd rather see a bit more rigidity in the soles, which is why I left the Overall rating at a 4.

I've been wearing these boots, to work, regularly for the past five months. I'm in an office seventy five percent of the time and a warehouse/fab shop the rest. I'm on my feet moving around the majority of the day. I love these boots, they're super comfortable and look great, especially when they break in. they definitely run large with lots of room in the toe area. I've worn them through a hot summer in the Bronx with minimum discomfort (for work boots). The boots were comfortable right out of the box and have held up well. I keep them clean and have conditioned them once. I use neatsfoot oil with these to minimize the darkening. Overall a great boot and will purchase again.

I checked felt a half size larger but that's not really true because I already know in Thorogood boots they run a half size large so I ordered an eight and a half and I usually wear a 9 so that's what I'm trying to say order a half size under your normal size

This is a work boot - make no mistake. It has a supportive insole, but not cushioned. They are leather, take some wear to break in. Extremely well and strongly made. Arch support is moderate. These are not lounging or wear-to-the game footgear - but are excellent in a physical work environment. They are 1/2 to a full size large (length). My foot is a full size 12 - cuts the line on the measuring device - and I bought an 11 1/2, which is just a tad long even yet. Width is excellent for a length fitting boot.

My husband loves these boots but there’s a reason he only rates them 3 stars. He bought his first pair and loved them. Loved the fit more than any other work boot he had ever owned. We had finally hit the steel toed jackpot! He is a delivery driver so has zero exposure to any harsh components in his boots. Unfortunately, after 3 1/2 months of 5 days a week wear, the sole of the boot began to fall apart. As in chunks of the lugs were separating and falling off. We assumed it to be a fluke and contacted Zappos as the brand offers a full year warranty. Zappos quickly and easily offered us a new pair in exchange. New pair arrives and again, husband is happy. This time his happiness only lasted 4 months. Same issue! Zappos customer service was amazing and offered us a refund and even though he loved the fit of these boots he was forced to find new. Great fitting boot. Great customer service. Some weird issue with durability.

I have to write this so others can read. This boot is the most comfortable shoe/boot I wear. I normally wear a casual dress shoe to work, but these feel so good all day everyday that I wear them with my office clothing as often as I can. Great boot. Worth every cent. Excellent leather

This is a great boot for general work because it is not too heavy and incredibly comfortable right out of the box. I bought this boot because it was made in the USA and had great reviews, and all of the positive things people had to say about them were accurate. I wear size 11 medium shoes, and this boot in size 11 was perfect in both length and width. I can wear it with either lightweight socks in summer or heavier socks in winter without any problems because the toe box is perfectly sized for a bit of toe movement. This may not be the best boot for a heavy construction worker who needs a steel toe for protection, but for a general carpenter or landscaper, this is a fine boot. I like the outer sole because it has some flexibility and the tread is not overly deep or aggressive - that means it doesn't grab a bunch of dirt and muck to track back into the house. If you are a steelworker or heavy-duty framer, look for a more iron-clad boot. But if you want a super-comfortable pair of general workbooks, these are great. And you will be supporting American workers, a good idea in these crazy times.

These boots have been very good so far. The only complaint is that the lace hooks can poke into your ankle if you do not have the tongue pulled in far enough when lacing. Overall very good steel toe boots

It is a good fitting and comfortable but not durable at all. After about 80 miles the heel is separating from the rest of the boot. I put on between 5 and 7 miles a day 5 days a week on polished concrete, working in a hardware store so I'm not really even abusing the shoes in that sense.

I tried two pair as they are a very nice looking and great quality boot. My problem was the fold/stitching area on the inside pressed on the bone of my big toe and so I could not keep them. I reordered a wide to see if this would help but sadly it did not. This is likely only a female thing would be my best guess. Wish Zappos carried their Wellingtons so I could just exchange.
