What To Look For In A Pair Of Men’s Boots

Your Guide To Finding The Perfect Pair Of Boots This Year.

Start Now

If you're in the market for boots, you already know there are thousands of options to choose from. While there's sure to be something for everyone, it also makes it hard to find the right pair for you.

We've put together a short list below of things we recommend you look for when shopping for a new pair. We're not biased (okay, maybe a little bit), but believe us when we say that if this guide helps you find a pair you love, we don't care where you bought them!

Quality Materials

Quality Materials

A good pair of boots should last you years, even decades, and they should look & feel even better after a lot of time on your feet. When we first started Thursday our materials were mostly off the shelf, but since then we've updated nearly everything to rigorously tested custom materials to ensure they stand the test of time — and that they only get better with age.

Gold-Standard Construction

Gold-Standard Construction

Poor construction will make your boots fall apart a lot sooner and will make them less water-resistant — so unless you like walking around with wet socks, make sure you check the construction method! While all of our men's line is made with quality construction methods, most of our boots feature Goodyear welt construction, the gold standard for footwear. It's more expensive and technically complex (which is why it's used in less than 1% of shoes globally), but it ensures longevity and creates a virtually waterproof seal at the insole so you can enjoy your boots for years to come.

Durable and Versatile

Durable and Versatile

Most boots qualify as either a "clunky work boot" or a "delicate fashion boot." We recommend looking for a pair that falls in the middle ground: boots that are durable enough for everyday wear but stylish enough for special occasions. The lack of options in this middle ground is actually what led us to start Thursday, and we put an enormous amount of effort into making sure our boots are ready for wherever the day takes you.

Honest Pricing

Honest Pricing

You're welcome to spend however much you like on boots, but there's no worse feeling than placing your order and seeing them go on sale a few weeks (or months) later. Because we're committed to offering you the best value, we price our products honestly 365 days a year. No discounts, promo codes, or special holiday pricing. We simply believe that offering you great products at a great value is the foundation to success, and that it's the right thing to do.
