(ID 814-4200).
First of all I was always concerned about boots with the white vibram sole, regarding the grip, look, comfort and the durability. So when I found a real cheap offer in the States for about 70 USD (50 Euro) I could not avoid to give them a try. I checked some reviews about the Thorogood heritage boots from Weinbrenner and ordered them.
A little after a week of wearing them I can say the following:

– it’s not a real Moc Toe as other manufactures do, the rim is just “folded” and not of 2 pieces of leather. Have a look at image 4.
– the leather is quite “soft”, so no real break in.
– they smells a bit of rubber not 100% leather and glue (this might come from the insole)
– my concerns about the white vibram were wrong, it’s extremely comfortable (did not try it on mud yet)
– on the right shoe, the first hook on the left is not in line to the other side (it might be the reason this pair was so cheap – could be B-Ware) speaking of about 5 mm.
– the shock sole might add to the comfort but I think of changing it to a leather one
– compared to the sizing of Red Wings I would say they are a little bit smaller and less wide (10,5 US – D)

So overall I’m quite happy, and I would say it’s a real bargain. If you are in the States or Canada or doing a trip over there, give them a try. I will post some Images in some month as
a reverence of how the break/wear in.

    I like these!

    Looking forward to getting back (kind of) and getting a job (less so) but will be following your blog closely – I’ll certainly be buying a pair of these. Sizing wise, how do they fit – was it a case of converting your Euro to US size?

    they fit perfect and are comfortable like a sneaker and hardly feel like a boot at all. i have uk 9.5 and us 10.5 and i ordered them in 10.5 us size. if you are in between a size, go for the bigger one. take it easy with finding a new job, bye alex

    Perfect.

    Just before coming away I picked up a pair of RM Williams boots in Kangaroo leather – they’re a stunning boot though quite formal. These Thorogood boots will be the ideal pair to back up my RMs.
