About Thursday Boots

Thursday Boots Review

Thursday Boots is a New York-based company, selling high quality handcrafted boots and shoes. In addition to men’s and women’s footwear, they also sell accessories including laces, socks, hats, belts, wallets, jackets, and bags/briefcases. The brand created a clean and unique design for all their products, always using premium materials. 

Thursday Boots recognizes that everyone has busy lives, and we need the right shoes and products to help us accomplish each day with comfort1. The following Thursday Boots review will share details about the brand and its products, to ensure that you make the right purchase decision.

Overview of Thursday Boots

Thursday Boots Review

CEOs Conner Wilson and Nolan Walsh founded Thursday Boots in 2014, displeased with the options of boots and shoes that other companies were selling to consumers. They wanted to introduce a brand that gave fair prices and high-end, lasting materials for their customers to wear. 

Thursday Boots has a goal to create ethically built products that they trust, so they know their customers can too. The brand recognizes the crucial role that the environment plays in how we live. Thursday Boots strives to improve how they produce their footwear and what materials are used in the creation process. The brand works only with companies that share the same ethical standards. 

The overall mission of Thursday Boots is to maintain their quality products through continuous testing and improvement. They want to help create memorable experiences, while eliminating the stress of finding the right shoes. Thursday Boots started with a small idea, and has since grown across the US and over 60 countries. Their products are manufactured in Mexico, Portugal, Spain, and Arkansas, each location maintaining the same quality craftsmanship.

Thursday Boots stands out from its competitors, thanks to quality products and an interesting brand name. As I began this Thursday Boots review, I was immediately curious about the meaning behind “Thursday” and what they had to offer. They use quality materials that provide enhanced comfort, such as leather linings2, padded midsoles, and arch support. 


  • They offer a variety of boots and shoes for both men and women, as well as accessories 
  • Their website is well-organized and contains a thorough FAQ page

  • They take pride in honesty and high-quality, lasting shoes, so customers will know they are making a smart purchase


  • No discounts or promotions, as they use a direct-to-consumer approach
  • Thursday Boots only has two physical locations, and both are in New York
  • Free shipping and returns for orders over $50-$100, but only for customers within the US
  • Does not offer shoes for children 

Thursday Boots Review

From classics like the Chelsea and Chukkah to lace-ups and Western styles, Thursday has a good-looking selection of leather boots for all occasions. While it’s hard to pinpoint what the best Thursday boots are (there are so many awesome styles), the following are two of their most popular.

Thursday Boots Captain Review

The Captain pairs well with any fall outfit and has a clean finish, made with premium leather designed to age beautifully with wear. The slight heel and cap-toe of the Captain adds a little height to your walk, and the laces ensure a snug fit. Goodyear Welt Construction makes them water resistant, so they can be worn in any season. Cork-bed midsoles and a fully lined glove leather interior makes the Captain comfortable all day long.

The men’s line includes three limited-edition Captain boots, all on the pricier side, costing $349. This throwback look comes in black, golden brown, and bourbon. The regular Captain boots are priced at $199, and the brand offers huge array of colour options.

The women’s Captain boots are designed with the same quality leather and features as the men’s, priced at $190. They’re perfect for a laid back look and are not overtly feminine. There are less color options available for the women’s Captain boots, but still a solid variety to choose from.

Thursday Boots President Review

The President boot is very similar to the Captain, with only subtle exterior differences. The President, like the Captain, is Goodyear water resistant with its durable rubber outsoles. These boots also have the cork heel, designed with comfort in mind3. They’re more rugged looking than the Captains, and they’re designed so that the leather ages aesthetically. 

The President boot comes in a dark olive suede for women who want a slightly higher heel than the Captain boot at 1.5’’, costing $190 (pictured above). The President boot for men comes in five dark colours: brown, tobacco, black matte, black, and natural, priced at $199

Thursday Boots Chelsea Review 

Chelsea boots are really trendy these days, and Thursday Boots delivers with this style. They’re offered in multiple designs and colours for both men and women. This Thursday Boots review would not be complete without going through their entire Chelsea collection, which continues to expand.

For women, the Duchess Chelsea is a casual, everyday boot with a 1.5’’ heel. It features weather-safe suede with leather paneling on the sides. The Duchess is the kind of boot that’s easy to dress up or down, and the fully lined leather interior means you’ll be comfy wherever you choose to go in them. The Duchess comes in dark olive suede, black, cognac suede, and brown.

While writing this Thursday Boots review, I was particularly interested in the the Avenue boot. The Avenue is a playful high heel version of the Duchess, and not your regular Chelsea boot. Its 3.5’’ height and dark colour options give it a dressier look, but the thickness of the heel and a padded insole maintains its comfort. The Avenue Chelsea has a durable slip-resistant outsole, so you’ll feel sturdy in them despite their height. The Duchess and Avenue boots range in price from $160-$180.

Thursday Boots offers four Chelsea designs for men, each with a distinct aesthetic. The Cavalier is reminiscent of the Duchess in its form. Customers can choose between exterior options including burnished suede, a sleek full grain leather, and more distressed-looking buffalo leather. The Duke appears to be an interesting midway between a cowboy boot and a construction boot, available in the same suede and leather options as the Cavalier and offered in a huge variety of colours.

The Rogue and Harness Chelsea boots only come in suede, with each offering its own bold statement. The Rogue is very devil may care with distressed leather ankle straps. The Harness design is borderline flashy, featuring harness straps and an O-ring around the ankle.

Every men’s Chelsea design features a Goodyear waterproof exterior, comfortable cork-bed midsole, and a leather interior lining. The Chelsea boots for men range in price from $190 to $199

Thursday Shoes Review

Thursday doesn’t just limit its talents to creating boots, no, they have a fantastic line of dress and casual shoes as well. Just ahead, I’ll introduce you to a few of their best-selling styles.

The first pair of Thursday shoes I want to tell you about is the Premier Low Top. A weekend shoe that looks just as great with shorts as it does with jeans, it comes in 10 different shades of regular leather and another 5 shades of heritage leather. This particular style is versatile and is available for men and women. Grab pair for $129.

The next style you might want to check out is the Handsewn Loafer. With a casual look that’s not too dressed down, these men’s shoes pair perfectly with chinos and bring something professional to laid-back outfits. Choose from regular or STORMKING® lug soles in 5 colors and get them for $145.

Are Thursday Boots Good?

Thursday Boots Review

For handcrafted shoes that promise durability, comfort, high-quality leather and suede, customers may find their lower prices hard to believe. You can do your research and shop around, but thousands of verified customers have given positive feedback on their overall experience with the boots. In their Thursday Boots reviews, customers agreed this about their pairs:

  • Extremely comfortable 
  • Could wear to any event
  • Exceeded expectations for shoes and wanted to buy more
  • Suggestions for half a size down were very beneficial 
  • Perfect fall/winter choices for any occasion
  • Durable wear and materials

More than one Thursday Boots review advises that the leather seems thinner than some other boots they have purchased before. They have also said that it took them 2-3 wears for the foot to mold to the shoe and allow for the perfect fit.

What Are The Best Thursday Boots?

This is a tricky question to answer because it really depends on your style preferences. You’ve already seen a variety of what the brand has to offer and what they’re most popular styles are, but according to those who shop with the brand, the best Thursday boots are the Captain.

Customers love their retro style and find them to be a versatile everyday shoe while adding a little something to their casual outfits. More than 24,000 shoppers have awarded the Captain a 4.9/5 star average.

This particular style is available for both men and women, though it looks to be more popular with men. The best Thursday boots style according to women is the Duchess Chelsea boots, which have a 4.9/5 star rating from over 7,000 shoppers.

Are Thursday Boots Comfortable?

From what I’ve read in feedback, Thursday boots are very comfortable. Since the leather may be thinner than it is on other brands of leather boots, you might find yours to be lighter in weight and more flexible. Both of these elements equate to a more comfortable wear.

Thursday took care when designing their boots, choosing features like these to ensure your feet are happy all day:

  • Cork-bed midsoles that form to your feet
  • Flexible elastic goring
  • Fully-lined glove leather interior
  • Shock absorbing insoles

Are Thursday Boots Waterproof?

Thursday Boots are water resistant and will keep your feet dry when it’s raining. Whether you choose suede or one of the brand’s other high-quality leathers, your feet will thank you when it’s wet out. Here’s how Thursday does it:

  • Goodyear Welt Construction: Makes your shoes water resistant and re-soleable
  • WeatherSafe™ Suede: Unlike regular suede, Thursday guards their against water so that your feet will stay dry and your shoes will look good for years to come
  • Studded Rubber Outsoles: These will be your best friend in slippery, wet weather

That said, don’t go walking through puddles as they do have their limits.

Thursday Boots Sizing

Thursday Boots Review

Thursday Boots suggests that you purchase half a size down for their shoes or boots. The leather will eventually mold to your foot for a comfortable fit. They advise women to order half a size larger or the same as your regular size.

They have designed their boots to fit the majority of the American population, but sizes do vary. There are no charts available for Thursday Boots sizing; instead customers are asked a series of questions, online or in person, to determine their ideal fit. 

How Should Thursday Boots Fit?

Your Thursday boots should feel comfortably snug when you put them off. If they feel tight, you may need to size up. Remember that the leather on Thursday boots stretches over time, so if you’re on the fence about the size, within 2-3 wears they should give you a little more wiggle room.

Is Thursday Boots Legit?

Take a quick scan of Thursday Boots reviews and you’ll quickly come to know how much this brand is loved. While digging through feedback I didn’t come across any red flags, only customers who have been wearing their boots for years and loving them.

Not every Thursday boot is going to be the right fit for every person, but the majority who shop with this brand rave about the comfort, fit, and durability of their boots.

Very displeased with how slowly this company processes orders during the Christmas holidays. Also can’t get a quick reply to customer service emails and they don’t have phone customer support on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. During the Christmas season, this is an issue.

Answered by Jerry Morris (2 years ago) Reply

Maybe you should shop when it isn’t Christmas! Ever thought of that??? I have made several orders with this company, their handling and shipping are great! Just like their products.

Asked by P Gibson (2 years ago) Reply

I placed my order between 11:30 am -12:00 pm on 12/14/20. Received confirmation at 12:03. Received shipping notice at 4:20 pm, 12/14/20. Boots on UPS truck for delivery today (12/16/20). Excellent service for Holiday season.

Thursday boots are the best boots that I have ordered my son has a foot problem and these are the only boots you can wear the support and the well-made style of the boots are incredible not to mention the customer service is outstanding they go beyond any other customer service company I have ever dealt with I recommend them highly their products are unbelievable I have yet to have a problem with them that they could not fix if there was a problem I and my friends have ordered several pairs of these boots and each time we get them we love them more and more I recommend them highly and if you have the slightest doubt don’t because if for some reason which I would find hard to believe you don’t like them their customer service is very willing to help you correct the problem they are rock stars in my book!!

Asked by Richard Zal (2 years ago) Reply

The worst customer service ever! I emailed countless times and did not get a response. I ordered and received the boots which were good, but I had a few questions before I was to start wearing them. The phone number does not work when calling from Canada, and no one will get back to me even after opening an account on their site hoping this would aid in getting a response – Nothing! I am extremely annoyed and disappointed!

Asked by Chris (2 years ago) Reply

The boot I wanted was out of stock, I signed up for a notice and when it was back in it was shipped practically overnight. Very fast process. I chose the Commander and I wanted to use it as a work boot. It is in no way shape or form a true work boot. It is definitely a beautiful shoe, but the material is way too thin. The boot runs very narrow and I think looks slightly different than in the posted pics. In the pictures it does not look as pointy toed as they actually are. One last thing, and it could be my lack of skills, but I cannot find a way to review this boot on the site.

Answered by David (2 years ago) Reply

I had the same experience with a pair of shoes I’d ordered from them. The shoes were a good 3/4 inch narrower than a pair of Timberland shoes (not boots).

I had to return the Thursday Boot company’s shoes because they squeezed the sides of my feet too tightly.

Asked by Adi (2 years ago) Reply

Fake reviews…Buyer Beware! Boots are not at all as posted reviews on company’s website and I wish I had read actual reviews. There is no way their boots can have so many 5 star ratings! Not worth the $200 you will spend.

Answered by Ross maclaren (2 years ago) Reply

I agree. These reviews are either fake or at the very least not the full story. I sent them a poor review yet not surprisingly it was never posted on their site

Asked by Peter T Skeie (2 years ago) Reply

Thursday Boots stands for two things, 1) world class marketing, and 2) poor quality materials and workmanship. I was seduced by their marketing into buying two sets of boots. Never again. Both sets had substantial defects that emerged within months of normal use. You can certainly do better elsewhere. You can probably do better anywhere else.

Asked by F. Holtz (2 years ago) Reply


I purchased a pair of Legend boots (Truffle) on 1/13/21. The boots arrived in a timely manner on 1/20/21. Within a couple of weeks I noticed the dye color was starting to wear off the bottom leather portion of the boot edges where they are stitched to the sole of the boot. I reached out to Thursday’s customer service on 2/20/21 to inform them about the quality of their boots and inquire about the warranty.

After providing them with documentation of my purchase, answering a bunch of questions and sending them pictures of my boots, they essentially informed me it was weather related wear that caused the color to strip from the bottom edges. They did offer to pay to have the boots repaired by a cobbler; however, I just paid close to $200 for a pair of boots that shouldn’t have the coloring coming off when I only had them for a month and only wore them to work maybe three days a week. I have had another pair of leather boots for over two years and never had this problem.

I am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of their boots and more so their customer service for not taking responsibility for the quality of their product.

Answered by P. Moreton (2 years ago) Reply

Purchased a pair of President boots and after 2 weeks of light indoor office wear the outer sole has detached from the boot at the front of the boot. So disappointing.

Not so much!
Asked by Kevin Rury (2 years ago) Reply

Update after 18 months. The sole has a hairline crack on the edge. Thursdays response was “see you wouldn’t want to be you”. Offered me $50 to keep my mouth shut. I don’t roll that way. No offer to repair which seems reasonable. I may throw them away, I may have vibrams put on them, I don’t know. Right now I’m just pi$$Ed off.

12 Regular fit well, I’m a 12 EE. High arch. My feet are very sensitive to tight or pinch points. Very supportive sole and ankle.
Shoes felt like an old friend right out of the box. I don’t see a break in period necessary.
I probably read 30 reviews before settling on these boots. I saddle soaped and polished with Lincoln Marine Cordova after deciding too keep them. I may patina the cap toe with parade gloss black later.
These shoes are beautiful, comfortable, and draw attention! I’m a little disappointed I did not recieve a leather coaster or a pilon with my order, but I’ll get over it!

Real or fakes
Asked by David castano (1 year ago) Reply

Where should the boots indicate the country manufactured in? Or which country should the tag read?
