    I bought twice the thunder 7.5 and I want to try this one I take the same size or 8 and second question the color is the same on the picture because in thunder always is different is too light from the picture

    May 13, 2019, 09:31 AM

    Hi Sameh Ali,

    Colour variations are very common with premium full grain leathers, especially Crazy horse leathers which is what the boots are made of. However try to be as consistent as possible. The Defender has a different last than the Thunder but if most of your shoes are 7.5 you should be ok with 7.5.

    Love Your Boots! Defender Slip On in the brown. Ive had my defenders for less the 100 days and the Rubber on my soles keep peeling off around the edges. Is this a Manufacturing defect or just normal wear? They Fit Perfect nice and snug! Have you had any other complaints about this issue?

    I now live in France and need another pair, do you deliver to France? Please please please please!!

    Can't say enough about this company and product. Purchased my boots from a local retailer in 2018 . Had a small issue regarding the sole of the boot. Contacted customer service and within 24hrs the issue was addressed completely to my satisfaction. Unbelievable customer service. Will undoubtedly purchase from this company again! It's nice to see a company that cares about their image and stands behind what they manufacture.

worth every penny and then some

worth every penny and then some

I had some money a while ago {7 years ago} and i decided to purchase some good footwear. I am a long-haul truck driver. but that doesn't mean I sit in a seat all day. I have to climb in and out of my tractor and trailer. Load freight and unload freight. Pull and push pallet jacks. Some weighing 2000 lbs or more. In and out of the truck and trailer Mud, snow, rocks and everything else in between. I could go on describing what I put them trough, but you can figure that out. Suffice to say they have been through "HELL". And comfortable to boot. No pun intended Lol. I finally had to reluctantly replace them today. I bought what I hope will be a decent replacement. We will see. All I know is if they last 1/4 of the life of my JB's I will be happy. And I am saving up for a new pair of "Sparks 31010's". They are the best pair of work footwear I have ever bought. I can't wait until I wear my new ones out so I can get a new pair of JB's. Best I have ever had. " Tom H."

Best pair of boots I have ever owned! Period!

Best pair of boots I have ever owned! Period!

I've owned my Goodhue Armours since 2009 and by far this is the best pair of boots I have ever owned! Period! I still have them to this day and besides going through laces (due to my abuse) they are still going strong. The eyelets have held up, the soles have held up and they are still as warm and comfortable as the day I bought them! I have wide feet and these are the only 3E's i have ever found. I have owned Kodiaks and Terra's and Sorel's....none of those can hold a candle to my Goodhue's. Thanks for making a great Boot!!

Extremely Comfortable

Extremely Comfortable

These work shoes have been my favourite for years. I have bought several pairs of the original “catalyst” shoes and this is my second pair of “catalyst 2”. They are extremely comfortable from day one and the insoles are the best! Even after a year of wearing for 40+ hrs/week, they are still as comfortable as when they were new. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone and I hope they never get discontinued.

Great Shoes for Paramedics!

Great Shoes for Paramedics!

Hey JB,

Boy oh boy, COVID 19 has really thrown a huge wrench in all the gears!! I'm sorry that I haven't talked to you since receiving the boots. I feel really bad that I haven't given you an update.  So better late than never.  

The boots are immediately comfortable and feel very light on the feet.  I find that the weight is perfect and that I don't get any feelings of "tired legs" that I would get with other boots I have worn.  I don't know how you guys got the weight down so much without performance reduction.  On the note of performance, the boots have done exceptionally well in all types of conditions.  I work in a rural base where we do a good variety of calls.  In the ditch full of water and mud they kept my feet dry and warm.  In a snow covered driveway (that I had to shovel out myself to get the stretcher out!!) they kept my feet warm and had excellent no slip capabilities on ice.  Mentioning ice... we did a call in an arena and I can honestly say they were a confidence builder on the ice for anti slip.  The fit and finish is excellent and I haven't had any issues with upkeep thus far.  In fact I have been raving about these boots to everyone.  The weight is the biggest selling point by far though.  I would market the heck out of that feature when trying to sell to Paramedics.  The one and only downfall of the boot is the heat generated by the user.  In warm weather it is too much and my feet actually sweat.  I think the issue is air flow.  If you could create better air flow through mesh or other means without compromising the waterproof ability, that would be good.  It's not a deal breaker, but definitely needs attention in my opinion. You guys are on the right track.  The boots are comfortable, warm, easily maintained, look great and are ultra light.  Fix the heat issue and you have the best boot available to paramedics I have ever worn in my 28 year (so far) career.  If you need more information let me know and I'll update you in another 6 months or so.

The Only Boots I Trust.

The Only Boots I Trust.

Every year where I work we get 1 pair of steel toes for the year. The guardian is the only thing I will take. Very comfortable , very well made and it takes a beating at work and outside of work. I am on my fourth pair! The other three are still around as my back ups!

Uninsulated make them great for working in the heat of summer. Lightweight make them comfortable all day.
I put my boots on first thing in the morning and wear them all day. Highly recommended.

Very Efficient Customer Support.

Very Efficient Customer Support.

I am writing this email to thank you and your staff in your quick and efficient solution to my problem with a pair of Nitro Boots.
The heel was separating from the boot and therefore it was becoming unusable.
When I contacted you by email your response was very quick and asked for details and pictures.
I sent the requested pictures and you advised that a NEW pair of boots would be forthcoming.
To my great surprise UPS delivered a new pair of boots the next day!
I cannot say how surprised and delighted I was with the exceptional speedy resolution to a potential problem.
You and the JB Goodhue company are first rate and stand behind your product 100%.
I cannot believe that start to new boots in my hand was 2 DAYS!!!
I will always support the purchase of JB Goodhue Boots!

Truly Water Resistant!

Truly Water Resistant!

Hello JBG,
Boots are still working great. They actually recently had a true water test at a scene in very deep, very cold ditch water. I thought they would be toast after the call, but they are still good. I had a "soaker" to reference a childhood terror lol. The water only got down about 3" into the boot. I don't know how my whole foot didn't get wet!? My partner is now going to buy one of your products after seeing how good mine worked. Btw... Her boots were thrown out that night. One night in front of the vent, One coat of polish, and mine are good to go. These boots rock!

Hey There,

I just wanted to say that I love these boots! I feel like they are not only the most attractive but also the most comfortable work boots on the market. This is my 8th pair and I will only buy these for as long as they are available. Fantastic product!

Herc2 30156 - Landscapers Dream Boots

Herc2 30156 - Landscapers Dream Boots

So I work as a trades person, I have been a landscaper for 25 years. up till 7 years ago I was unable to find a pair of boots that could stand up to the abuse I put my Biotech JB Goodhue's through. From standing ankle deep in mud, stone dust from cutting pavers, or even the little projectiles from trimming grass. These boots in my opinion are the best for what i do. Thank you JB Goodhue for producing a durable, comfortable work boot.
