Proud of these boots

At first the boots were painful to wear. I was just coming out of my Carolina 8” moc toe which had super plush cushioned soles, the Thorogood do not. Initially I thought I made a mistake, then the Thorogoods broke in after about 5 days of working 9 hour shifts and now they feel amazing. I ordered an 11.5 EE (wide) in hopes of wearing my Correct Toes toe spacers with them but too tight. No big deal, I can wear toe spacers with my Altra running shoes off work. My dad bought a pair of these boots also in a standard width and they were too narrow so they are true to size but run narrow; order a wide for comfort. These boots don’t have an outrageous drop from heel to forefoot, which is what I was looking for. I wanted a barefoot style boot setup because heels are BAD FOR YOU. I find that wearing zero drop shoes and toe spacers really help with my back pain and plantar fasciitis, all of which were probably caused by wearing shoes and boots with steep heel-toe drops.

The materials and build quality are amazing and they’re made in the States! Love that. This boot is waterproof so the tongue is a little annoying at first but it smooths out quite quickly and breaks in nicely. I had a hard time getting the stock laces to cinch the boots up tight like I like them. So I replaced with 550 parachord, perfect.

I originally purchased these from GoBros but the wrong boot was sent to me, I now have the correct boot and the return process was absolutely PAINLESS, which I loved. Thanks GoBros!
