        Comments about Thorogood Shoes Roofing Boots:

        I have been roofing for almost 30 years and am still in good shape. I think much of my success in remaining healthy has been wearing good shoes. For me, there are no other shoes.

              Man, These bring me way back. I already have gotten questions as to where I found these. Everybody remembers them as being called Lil'Abners. So, if you get a sudden rush of calls from Stamford, Ct about them, you'll know it was me that sent them to you......
              Thanks,Rick
