Thursday Boot Co. sent me its black suede Downtown Boots to try last winter, and I essentially lived in them all season long because they were so comfortable. When I first reviewed them in February 2017, I said:
There are a number of factors you should take into consideration when buying new boots — comfort, durability, quality, and price being some of the most obvious ones. Color, style, and brand might also influence your decision. If you want boots that check off all of these boxes, I can’t recommend Thursday Boot Company’s Downtown Boots enough.
They’re some of the most comfortable ones I’ve worn right out of the box with no break-in period. I’ve been wearing my black suede pair everywhere the past few weeks, with skirts, jeans, and everything in between. At $149, they’re also an attractive price. I’ve paid double that for pairs I liked half as much.
The reason the Downtown Boot claims the top spot in this buying guide is because Thursday Boot Co. really considered every detail when they designed it, from the full glove leather lining that ensures a comfortable fit to the proprietary WeatherSafe suede upper that's designed to maintain its luster with age.
The boot also has a padded leather footbed that forms to your feet after a few wears for all-day comfort, a grooved outsole that provides better traction and durability, a 1.5" block heel that's reinforced with rubber to give you extra grip, and an unseen zipper and leather pull tab that makes the boot easy to put on and take off.
If you're hesitant to buy from a Kickstarter-funded company you've never heard of, don't be. All of the company's boots are handcrafted by skilled artisans at factories in either León, Mexico or New York City. And buyers who've reviewed the boots say the company's customer service is very responsive and eager to help if you have any issues with or questions about your boots.
Verified buyer Patti A. says "I love my boots [and] wear them for all occasions, and they got a small hole. I contacted the company [and] they replaced [them] with NO questions asked with brand-new boots. Customer for life!"
Even though the company doesn't offer narrow or wide widths yet (though they're exploring wider options for the future), customers with narrower and wider feet love the boots, too, but many of them suggest sizing down or up half a size for a perfect fit.
It's a great feeling to walk around and not actively think about how your feet feel in your boots — because they're simply comfortable and well supported. Thursday Boot Co. really impressed me with the Downtown Boots. Not only do they look great with their low heel, they've held up well to tons of wear. And their weather-resistant design means you can wear them without fear on typical rainy days, so have no regrets about picking up a pair right now.
Pros: Instantly comfortable, durable water-resistant design, available in six stylish colors, Thursday Boot Co. offers free shipping and free returns anywhere in the continental US
Cons: No wide or narrow widths yet, not easily resoleable
