Weinbrenner Shoe Co. opened in 1892 crafting “jobbers,” affordable, quality work boots designed specifically for telephone linemen. As the company grew, it branched into different kinds of footwear with trade-specific functionality. In 1918, Weinbrenner launched its Thorogood line, which has become the company’s leading collection of tactical, work and safety footwear. Weinbrenner Shoe Co. holds firm to its principles of fine craftsmanship and innovation in all of its footwear. The Thorogood line provides firefighters, EMTs and law enforcement officers with boots tailored to the demands of their particular lines of work. These elite operators perform high stakes work that requires unclouded concentration. Thorogood’s durable, comfortable, protective footwear can make all the difference.
