    Anyone have experience with Thorogood Boots?

    CXL Leather, Goodyear welted, American made and good looking.

    Is there a reason that they don't get much love?

    I saw this drop as well and I'm definitely interested. Personally since I don't know exactly how their sizing runs I will pass. All sales final through Massdrop and as we all know, shoe sizes can be a bit all over the place.

      I have a pair of Thorogoods and like them. Incidentally I am wearing them today. They aren't quite up to snuff with Red Wing and the like in terms of finishing and quality control, but overall I am happy with mine, especially for the price paid. The leather is a little thinner and softer than is used on Red Wings, which may be a negative in terms of durability/longevity, but it is actually a benefit in terms of out-of-the-box comfort. Mine had no break-in period at all. Sizing is true to typical work boot sizing, that is, they do run a tiny bit big and you will likely want 1/2 size down from your typical size in other shoes.

        Thank you! This is mostly what I was wondering about. I've been eyeing some Red Wings, but these might work just fine for me, seeing as I don't actually need a bullet proof boot as part of my life.

          Once I wear out my current cap toe boots, I'm probably going to get the Dodgevilles. Been eyeing those since last winter.

              I have a pair of the Steven Alan x Thorogood boots that I bought second hand and they have been great.

                Oh I totally let my nerd flag fly at the gym. Some guy yesterday asked if my Gryffindor Quidditch t-shirt was "in Icelandic"... wat a muggle amirite.
