Thorogood Work American Heritage Moc Toe – after 1 year:
After I saw the very comprehensive article fromThomas – Denimhuntersabout 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.
Made in San Francisco from White Oak Cone denim and leather label from Tanner Goods. Huge pockets, even I can get my mobile, wallet and my hands together in one front pocket (and my hands are big!). I really like the hand printed instructions on the pockets and the straight leg cut. I need the feeling to wear trousers – no leggins. Tellason is widely available in the States, in Europe check Amtraq distributed shops.

Received these nice boots about 3 month ago and using them mostly outdoors an now since a couple of weeks on work with the boats they had to withstand a lot. As a friend from Damn yaksays “treat them like you hate them”, they will only look better. Check out their look when they were new and decide for yourself.Thorogood boots new.
