Thorogood Work American Heritage Moc Toe – after 1 year:

After I saw the very comprehensive article from Thomas – Denimhunters about the Thorogood Union made American work boots I decided to take some images of this boots I use now for 1 year at work. Thorogood / Weinbrenner boots are widely unknown in Europe and for a retail price of about 280 Euros hardly used/abused on work.

They have performed very well during this time. Getting hit by raisin and paint they get cleaned with aceton or sandpaper on a regular basis. Probably the resoling will be the first reason for a “repair” so no complaint by me and a real recommendation if you get them for a good price from the USA.

Here images of the boots after 3 month or when they were new.

    You need to clean and apply some mink oil regularly. You will literally double the life out of those boots.

      too much raisin, carbon dust and chemicals were really hard on them. Indeed I used a lot of wax and oils on them and
      they performed really well under this workload.

    Hey, you really torture your boots! They look like they’ve been torn apart… It might be better if you take a second pair to change them every day. That’s much better, even for your feet. Well, ok, for ’bout 200 €, buying a second pair of boots, that seems to be a lot, aber das rechnet sich über die Jahre (so, mein Englisch reicht gerade für ein paar wenige Sätze, daher der Rest in Deutsch: Ich denke, wenn du regelmässig die Schuhe wechselst, dann hat ein Paar immer ein wenig Zeit zum ‘Ausruhen’. Dann einwachsen, ab und zu sparsam fetten und Du freust dich auf viele Jahre mit wenigen, dafür guten Schuhen)

      Die Arbeitsbedingungen waren einfach brutal für den Schuh, Kunstharz, Carbonfasern und Staub und zum reinigen dann Aceton und danach Sattelseife und Fett.
