The Weinbrenner Shoe Company, proud producer of Thorogood boots, boasts a rich history in the footwear industry that dates back to the start of the twentieth century. Albert Weinbrenner and his business partner purchased the Knoll Shoe Company in 1900 and began producing around 60 pairs of boots each day as the company first took root. Rising demand in the years that followed would grow that number to over 2,000 pairs manufactured daily. By the year 1917, Weinbrenner had been named as a major contractor to produce customized boots for the U.S. Army.
Introduced in 1918 and still popular in many trades today, Thorogood boots are known for state-of-the-art quality and unmatched durability. Weinbrenner creates high-performance work boots suited to a range of demanding professions, including law enforcement, firefighting, and military service. Their footwear is crafted from the highest quality materials, and is constructed with superior comfort and performance squarely in mind for all-day wearability.
With their headquarters located in Merrill, Wisconsin, the Weinbrenner Shoe Company stands as one of the few remaining American footwear manufacturers.

For outstanding quality footwear that will meet and exceed the demands of military personnel, law enforcement, and those who work in any demanding job environment, trust Thorogood boots to deliver superior performance every time.
