I'm gonna go ahead and necrobump here but I just wanted to share that I bought these Thorogood boots:
They are horsehide, Made in USA, Goodyear welted, a great price and the boots are absolutely beautiful in real life -- despite the fact that the Amazon pictures makes them look terrible. Highly recommended.
I really wish Thorogood would release a proper heritage line in the USA. Now that Epaulet doesn't carry them, I don't know where to get them besides Highkickz (but they never have my size). Looking around the web, it looks like Europe has a line from them that look superb. Check it out:
I'd really love to get my hands on these but who knows how? Gah!! Made in USA and you can't even get them here, sad situation.
Anyway, here's that site:
Thorogood, take my money!
