Thorogood shoes are a line of work shoes and boots produced by the Weinbrenner Shoe Company. Founded in 1892, the Weinbrenner Company has produced quality footwear for over one hundred years, much of it for the American workforce. Over the past century, the company has established a reputation for dependability and constant improvement. The Thorogood brand has been a driving force in American job site footwear safety standards, introducing several innovative safety and design elements in work boots and shoes which have now become standard features, helping to establish the product line as one of the most trusted work uniform and footwear brands in the United States. Not only does Thorogood manufacture the standard steel toed safety footwear, models like the Hellfire lead the market in safety boots for workers dealing with fire and hazardous materials. To ensure the company's products continue to live up to this high standard of excellence and maintain their good reputation with working men and women around the world, Weinbrenner has instituted a Quality Management System, which ensures products manufactured by Weinbrenner meet or exceed the requirements of the International Standard ISO 9001:2000.
Weinbrenner Shoe Company is just as dedicated to the well-being of its own workers. Weinbrenner is an employee-owned company, and all Thorogood brand products are union made in the United States. Workers at Weinbrenner Shoe Company have been unionized since 1947, originally in an affiliate branch of the International Boot and Shoe Workers Union and currently as Locals #688 and #717 of the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union, an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations, Central Labor Council. That "Union Made in the USA" guarantee is just another way Thorogood improves the comfort of the worker, helping ensure that his or her high quality work boots and uniforms were manufactured by laborers in safe working conditions and for a fare wage.
