Editor's Pros & Cons
Pros

Goodyear welt construction

Cotton drill vamp lining

Removable PU footbed

Cons

Expensive

Heavy to the feet

Outsole

Outsole

Just like with any work boots worth of salt, Thorogood American Moc Toe Boots also have very thick, rubber outsole. It provides a great deal of insolation, but in these precise type of shoes the MAXWear Wedge slip resistant outsole does exactly that. It protects your shoes from slipping. The wedged heel is thicker than the rest of the outsole, but overall outsole is the main line of defense against slip related injuries.

It’s both slip and oil resistant and I will be your best friend in your hour of need. And you now what? That injury protection that is offered by the thick outsole applies also to all the electrical injuries too. The rubbery outsole is electrical hazard rated, and guarantees maximum safety at all times. Yup. The boots have electric shock-resisting soles and heels, and they’re even capable of withstanding a shock from 18,000 volts!
Midsole

Midsole

If you think that the outsole is amazing, wait until you read about the rest of the shoe. The rubber was a dominant material in the outsole, but the very same good old rubber can be found in the midsole too. Why? For added protection and insulation of course. It adds an additional level of comfort and supplements that already thick and classic outsole in a much-understated way.

You won’t even notice that it’s there but you’ll be able to feel the outsole while it's working its magic. These feature a reinforced outsole with the Ultimate shock absorption footbed, that’s not only removable it also has the double the intensity of the regular work boots. Tucked away in the specially designed midsole is the Poron cushion insole, for a touch of added comfort, and all of the things combined give you the most comfortable feel on your legs, during the most labor-intensive hours at work.
Upper

Upper

Ah, the upper. It's beautiful and practical upper that offers the most protection. Where to start? Well, let’s start with the 100% leather that covers all of the upper in these boots. It’s technically a full grain leather, with a Tobacco oil tanned color that gives the boots that classical look. This is a work boot with a soft toe design that can withstand any type of unpleasant surprises. The toes area of the upper are reinforced with Goodyear welt construction, and in precisely that area you’ll find the cotton drill vamp lining. The cotton lining offers great airflow and breathability to the foot, even if it’s in the shoe for hours at a time.

Oh, and the composite shank that’s engineered specially to accommodate work shoes like these? It is there to keep you extra supported and secured. The final touch to the boots is the thick stitching of the upper and the classic brown laces with metal eyelets that just add to the sturdiness and the more comfortable fit of the boot. The stitching is done with a thick thread that happens to have the same color as the outsole. It provides a great contrast to the tobacco oil-tanned color of the upper. They pair wonderfully and combined give way very classic feel to the work boot. Every inch of this work boot is carefully designed and engineered to give you maximum security while you’re at work. Every part of the boot is reinforced with additional features, and the leather that hugs the entire upper is there to keep you warm and insulated.
Comfort

Comfort

This design is surprisingly comfortable despite being a work style of boots. They’re quite heavy, yes, but at the same time, they’re very comfortable to the foot without being too restricting because of the added features. And you need to be comfortable even when you’re at work. That’s the whole point! They offer protection to the feet but your feet don’t feel the strain of the grueling work hours. That’s mostly due to the removable PU footbead that relaxes the arches, and because of the rubber midsole. Rubber is most present in the thick outsole, but adding more rubber in the midsole doesn’t hurt right?
Support

Support

It’s a soft toe design work boot with Goodyear welt construction. It just doesn’t get better than that in terms of support. You’ll be able to feel the support in various areas of the boot, like the composite shank especially engendered to offer support and stability. But the support in this design comes also from the oil tanned leather upper. A leather upper with a cotton drill vamp lining offers support but at the same time breathability. The moisture from the sweat and from the damp working conditions will provide no threat to your feet and they’ll stay supported, protected and very aerated during the long working hours.
Durability

Durability

It’s highly unlikely that you’ll be able to find a more durable work boot than this. Just remember what the company moto said. They’re meant to last, and that’s no joke. All of the elements find each other and form a very durable and long lasting work boot that happens to look great even if you’re not climbing utility poles. The thick leather in the outsole and midsole form a beautiful unity with the oil tanned leather in the upper. And in between, you can find some very practical gadgets that will make your workday a little more secure. The Comfort cushion insole is there for added comfort, the Ultimate shock absorption footbed is optional and removable and let’s not forget that the boots do meet electrical hazard safety standards. Durability is ensured in almost every inch, and it’s up to you to purchase the Thorogood Am
Flexibility

Flexibility

Because of their intended purpose, the Thorogood American Moc Toe Boots are not flexible. They’re sturdy and compact and they offer great grip, comfort, and stability in every work condition.
Stability

Stability

Yes, maybe the flexibility is not the strongest feature for these, but by all mean the stability is. They’re designed to be stable on your feet wherever you wear them. The first inkling of stability is given away by the thick rubber outsole and midsole. The outsole made with polyurethane Maxwear 90 is slip and oil resistant and of course electrical hazard rated. No challenge is too great for these work boots, and stability is one of the key points. The Poron comfort cushion insole is there to boost the stability to a whole new level, and let’s not forget about the storm welt construction of the upper and the fiberglass shank that support and protect from heavy objects that might injure the foot.
Airflow

Airflow

Despite being heavy and protective work boots, they do offer a heavy dose of airflow to the feet during the workday. The Thorogood American Moc Toe Boots have 100% leather in the upper, which promotes healthy airflow to the feet and there’s also the cotton drill vamp lining in the upper that just gives the boots another chance to breathe and to filtrate your feet.
Terrain

Terrain

There isn’t a terrain that the Thorogood American Moc Toe Boots aren’t suitable for. They can handle anything. They’re perfect for rough terrain, smooth and slippery terrain and in wet climates. The outsole is slip and oil protective to the feet and they offer electrical protection when needed. Because you just don’t know what the workday might bring, it’s good to have these boots by your side
Traction

Traction

Because they’re suitable for wearing on any type of terrain and any type of weather conditions, their traction is on point too. The thick rubber in the outsole is especially designed to promote traction, and it’s all thanks to the ridges on the bottom part of the Thorogood American Moc Toe Boots. They’re there to keep your feet firmly on the ground and there will be no slipping incidents while you have them on you that’s for sure.
