Ratings & Reviews
Decent Boot for the Money
I have had mine for about 2 years and I began purchasing department wide about a year ago. Inside line on mine has come loose and makes a little difficult getting off. Boots are of average comfort and are wearing well. They do seem to run tight on sizing at ankle area. Have a couple members we just could not put them in due to ankle cut. Overall this has proven to be a good boot for the money.
not a fan
had boots for a few weeks they were comfortable but the inside liner ripped and are now useless
Great boot and Battle tested
This boot has been run through the gambet and has come out on top every time. It has yet to fail me and i will buy another set when the time comes.
Great boot !!!
great firefighting boot
Very good boot at a very good price
Our department switched to these boots two years ago. Only two problems from all boots ordered (torn liner, insole problem). Otherwise no complaints. The boots hold up very well to the worst conditions and are very comfortable. You can't beat the price either!!!
Overall good boot!
Good boot. Had them for about a month now. I didn't know what size at first, but it s true to what it says next to tips about it running a half size smaller than your standard boot fit. I wear a 10.5 shoe and a normal width foot. I got a 10M and it fits good even when I wear thick wool socks. They broke in fast too, haven't had any trouble getting them on and off. I took out the insole and put a different one in that I wear in my running shoes to make it feel more athletic. After time of use I plan on putting the regular insoles back in under the insoles I got in now to make them more snug on my feet.
Boots were pretty good. Nothing special. The inside liner fell apart in my buddies after two years. Mine were okay, but after wearing some others I switched. These will do the job but footwear is not a place to look for a bargain. The leather held up really well though
i would buy another pair
I ve had these boots for about 4 years and they are holding up pretty well.. I can't complain. Deffinatly better than rubber boots... great price too
unloading trucks comfortable no comment
great boot at this price point
For this price, its a really great boot. Breaks in easy, nice reflective and good grip. The boot leather seems to age prematurely. If you got the money try the haix hero, globe supreme for comfort. If you like old school hard stiff boots get the honeywell. They feel like marines boots
Decent boot considering
I've had mine for a few years now, they are very comfortable and light. They are warm during those cold Maine winter nights and stable in all ground conditions. I've had the same issue with mine that a few other reviewers have, the liners pull out (maybe Thorogood has fixed this issue?). I think that once the waterproof barrier breaks down that's when all hell breaks loose. I'd definitely buy another pair, maybe half a size bigger. They do run tight in the ankle bend area but seems to work out of that once they are broken in.
Half size too small, just as heavy as rubber
It is stupidly tight at the top of the feet. I thought I would break them in eventually, but that was just wishful thinking. I do not have a wide feet.
I purchased boot in April 2017. On Oct. 4 2017 the inside of my right boot heel blew out. I have a pair of globes that lasted 6 years.. Now I am going to go back to globes.
Get rid of the heel lock and they'd be good
Well built boot but fit is terrible. "Heel locking" is too tight, even bought bigger size boot and the heel/ankle part of the boot is still too tight. Even took Hurst mini spreaders to the inside to loosen it up, helped a bit but still difficult to get off my feet. Not fun when trying to doff your bunker pants for a medical and you have to struggle on the ground to take them off.
nope they haven't fixed it.
<br>the inner liner still comes apart. all of my thorogoods did same. no more for me. brahmas from Walmart hold up better than these
