Why Bone Collector Chooses Thorogood Boots
The whole Bone Collector team is excited to announce their new partnership with Thorogood boots. Good boots are one of the most essential hunting items because they can truly make or break your hunting trip. Michael, T-Bone, and Nick stand both in and behind these boots, putting their quality to the test day in and day out in different conditions, and proving just how reliable Thorogood-made boots are.
Why Thorogood Boots?
Founded in Wisconsin back in 1892, Thorogood® is an employee-owned company that understands footwear is defined by heritage, quality craftsmanship, and unmatched comfort. Handcrafted by Union Tradespeople, Thorogood offers over 100 styles of job-fitted footwear made right here in the USA. From farmers and construction workers to outdoorsmen and first responders, Thorogood has been the leader for over 125 years.
“Thorogood is thrilled to partner with the Bone Collector team,” says Bianca Boettcher, Marketing Manager at Thorogood. She continues, “The enthusiasm the guys have for Thorogood is authentic, and that’s the cornerstone of any great partnership.”
When asked about why he chooses Thorogood boots over any other brand, Michael Waddell had this to say, “We all have our own journeys and adventures, but when you have a boot like Thorogood, it just makes the journey easier. Durable, comfortable and trusted by people who make a difference! The American Heritage line is made right here in the USA by hardworking men and women. They are our kind of people and we’re so proud to be working with them.”
After purchasing a pair of the American Heritage 6” MAXWear Wedge boots for himself (and all of his boys), this has been a go-to boot around the Waddell household for years. The tobacco oil-tanned leather looks great for wearing anywhere, and the Poron® comfort cushion insole and removable shock absorption footbed makes them comfortable enough to wear all day.
T-bone relies on Thorogood boots whether he’s out on a hunt or actively working on his land. When asked about why he chooses Thorogood, he said, “Can’t argue with quality footwear that looks this good and has been around since 1892!”
T-Bone’s a fan of the Veracity GTX® waterproof 8” boot. It’s an all-around great boot for outdoorsmen – for hunting, working, or going to the store. The leather and Gore-Tex® waterproofing will keep your feet nice and dry for those soggy days afield. The military-grade polyurethane footbed ensures you will stay comfortable despite being on your feet all day. For slippery conditions at the job site, you can rely on the Vibram® rubber outsoles for great oil- and slip-resistance.
Nick Mundt echoed the same sentiment as T-Bone, saying “From work, to the field, to the party, Thorogood boots have me covered. Comfort, craftsmanship, and durability is what you get with every pair from a company that’s so close to home!”
Nick has always liked a great hiking boot and Thorogood has done a great job of combining that with something that you can wear every day, to work, or the mountain. The result is the Crosstrex series, which is waterproof, comfortable, and durable. These boots look like a simple hiking boot, but they are so much more. The composite safety toe and composite shank protect your feet, but the boots are light enough and comfortable enough to use all day, due to the removable SHOCK ZONE polyurethane footbed.
Paw Paw’s Choice
From his days as a contractor and builder, Paw Paw (Edwin) knows a quality work boot when he sees it. He’s a particular fan of the 1957 Series boots. This style reminds him of the lace up he wore “back in the day” and he loves the comfort they provide. The darker leather just looks great and authentic on any job site.
The waterproof 6” boot sports briar pitstop full-grain leather and has a fiberglass shank so they can withstand a harsh work environment. The MAXWear Wedge™ outsole helps you keep your footing in slippery conditions. Also, the removable memory foam footbed makes them comfortable to wear all day.
Boettcher goes on to say, “The Bone Collectors are a true representation of what our brand stands for; hard work, dedication and a little fun along the way.” She continues, “We’re confident that Thorogood footwear will keep the Bone Collector team comfortable no matter the pursuit, and we are honored that they have chosen us as their exclusive footwear partner!”
Keep an eye out for a full line of hunting boots that will be released in the fall of 2020, featuring 8 brand new styles, including a technical rubber boot.
