BRAND PROFILE: Thorogood Boots March 17, 2017 14:24

 

 

"Since 1892, with the introduction of the first "jobber" boots (job-fitted safety work boots), Weinbrenner has been a leading manufacturer and innovator in the footwear industry, initiating many of the significant occupational safety features that are common today."

This statement cannot be anymore closer to the truth. Most of us all know and love Thorogood boots. Weinbrenner is the company behind your most reliable, classic, and durable favorites.

These boots are made in the U.S.A which is our backbone here at Genuine Motorworks. So it was a given for us to carry such a great product that is made in North-central Wisconsin. All the while being Union Made!

The Weinbrenner company was started by Albert Weinbrenner with Joseph Pheifer in 1892 at the age of 27. They gained immediate success after creating the "jobber" boot with great craftmanship and innovation. By 1908, the company was well known for making great and affordable boots. You can only imagine how in demand the shoes became that they opened 5 distrubution center and this is how the Wing & Wheels logo came about.

Now after 125 years, we are so happy to celebrate Thorogood's longevity and excellence. Even adding new colors to their roster, like these great Roofer Boots in Navy.

Cheers to our friends!
