Thorogood American Heritage Reviewed
There is no doubt Thorogood shoes, and work boots are one of the best since they have been on the market since 1892 and still in mass production today. Owned by Weinbrenner Shoe Company, their original idea was to create footwear for the working men and women, and they have successfully maintained their creation due to their hardworking, skilled employees and the usage of the best quality materials and latest innovations. Based in the U.S.A., the company still manufactures most of the boots and shoes on the American soil. In 1942 the company started making military footwear that became popular among civilians too. Their range today includes Hiking Boots, Wellingtons, Postal Shoes, Uniform Boots, and Waterproof Boots.
Thorogood is no stranger to top quality work boots, but regarding style, the favorite boot among users is the Men’s American Heritage. With over 125 different styles their famous American Heritage wedge sole collection remains a classic hit. The first wedge sole and moccasin-style stitching was first introduced in 1964 and became the best-selling boot off all times and is still available in its original design today. Made from ultra-durable tobacco tanned leather or black walnut leather, these handcrafted heritage boots are perfect for working and standing on a concrete floor, wet and slippery surfaces or a night on the town.

The 6” includes three metal eyelets and three-speed hooks followed by one more metal eyelet at the top. The cushioned collar with pigskin and the leather tongue gusseted underneath the second eyelet give you immediate comfort when you slide in your foot. Many users like the pretty wide tongue because they can wrap their foot around it. Usually, the brand print is on the bottom, like in the 6” boot, but on the 8” boot the Thorogood brand is near the top of the boot.
The dual density shock-absorbing insole and the padded areas inside the boot give you immediate comfort. For those who want extra inserts or require special ones, the insole is easily removable and replaceable. Under the removable insole, the boot reveals Poron which is a very comfortable material on its own. Under the Poron, a fiberglass shank and a layer of cork are placed for extra comfort. The vamp lining is cotton to help your feet breathe well and stay dry on hot days. In conclusion, it seems reasonable to say this is a work boot that will outlast a worker's career.
A fiberglass shank is incorporated for excellent ankle support to keep you confident in your stride, and the wedge-style sole is oil and slip resistant, meaning you stay grounded on even the most slippery surfaces. The wedge sole is flat, but ironworkers need flat soles so you can pivot your foot without worrying about the heel catching causing them to trip while walking the steel. It's much easier to work on a ladder while wearing a flat sole. If you need comfortable and supportive boots that also protect while on-site, American Heritage Moc Toe is one of the best options.
The magnitude of the resistance forces is influenced by the outsole material and outsole hardness of the shoes. With the non-marking slip, abrasion, and oil resistant wedge outsole, American Heritage Moc Toe makes an excellent choice for ironworkers, carpenters, plumbers, or just standing and walking on concrete the whole day.
They weigh 3 ½ lbs per pair, which is still pretty lightweight, considering that they are work boots.
This Moc Toe boot offers exceptional durability and comfort featuring protection characteristics and a stylish and professional appearance.

Whether you’re searching for a beautiful boot to add to your casual wardrobe or a field-tested performer, the Thorogood Moc Toe is unarguably a purchase you won’t regret.
This boots also feature a rubber slip and oil resistant Max wear outsole and rubber midsole, to keep your feet safe on the ground, whether in wet or dry conditions.
