Thorogood has relentlessly focused on craftsmanship, innovation, and comfort, while recognizing the importance of footwear to your livelihood and getting the job done. We make job-fitted boots for the electrician, carpenter, ironworker, boilermaker, sheetmetal worker, utility lineman, millwright, assembler or fabricator, to name a few. You perform a specialized job, so you need a specialized boot. To further accommodate your needs, we offer extended sizes, metatarsal guards, and styles ranging from lace-to-toe, side zip, and wellington footwear.
True to our Job-Fitted heritage, Thorogood collaborated with Ironworkers, Boilermakers, Electricians, and safety directors to create an outsole for every jobsite. Over the course of two years we worked to develop our exclusive MAXWear outsole that outlasts the competition by 30%. We started with the MAXWear Wedge, and through its proven performance in the field and demand from safety directors for a heeled sole we created the MAXWear 90. Both the MAXWear Wedge and MAXWear 90 offer superior comfort and durability on the job compared to the competition. Feel the comfort in every trusted step with our MAXWear Wedge and put your trust in the MAXWear 90 when climbing ladders or uneven terrain. Thorogood MAXWear outsoles have you covered.
