They can be had on sale with a bit of sleuthing. In fact, just this past weekend bloomingdales had a men's sale with a gift card for $175 on $500 in purchases, and backcountry had 20% off everything including for a shortwhile CG.

For the price you can't go wrong, the RW are twice as expensive but definitly not twice as good. Plus, I couldn't justify wearing a $250 pair of RW through salt/snow winter as I intend to with the thorogood.
Thanks MSSneaker for clarifying, I wear sorel's in size 9US as well
First post. In my research I could find very little information on this boot so hopefully you find this review helpful, especially if you are concerned with quality and sizing. The Thorogood Moc Toe is very handsome and considerably cheaper than red wing, I paid $110. Style wise they are not as refined, and much more rugged, it's a true workman's boot. The quality of the leather is identical to RW and I have heard they are sourced from the same tannery; therefore if...
