Thorogood "The Deuce" boots are just one in a long line of styles that provide strength, durability and comfort in any situation that requires tough, resilient footwear. With cement construction, these boots are safe to wear in electrical hazards and are able to resist up to 18,000 volts of electricity. With a dual-zone wicking mesh, they are waterproof to keep the wearer's feet completely dry while keeping feet safe from bloodborne pathogens. A molded rubber heel stabilizer offers strong support. Thorogood has made shoes for nearly a century; the passage of time and increasing demands in high-durability footwear have not changed its commitment to producing footwear that provides support and endurance for a number of labor-intensive fields, including the military.
