Adventures with Thatcher
No matter where you're headed, the Thatcher sneakerboot is ready. Our waterproof/breathable membrane adds all-weather protection to a premium full-grain leather upper, while a cushioning EVA midsole and our Peak-to-Pavement® traction keep you prepared for whatever adventure lies ahead.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Olivia from New favorite Forsake boots! I've owned a couple pairs of Forsakes and they have had their pros and cons. The Thatcher combines all my favorite parts of my old forsake boots, no cons! I like that they are full grain leather, so each time they get muddy, you can easily rinse them off or wipe them down with a damp cloth and they look brand new again. They have more cushion around the ankles than the Patch, making them a lot more comfy in my opinion. They look a tad bulkier than the Patch, but still much more sleek than a standard hiking boot. They keep your feet dry and have good traction so you feel stable, even when hiking even on wet rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angela from Comfort, Quality and Style I just got the Thatcher boot in toffee and am very pleased so far! They fit like a glove! I’ve been wearing them around the house and yard for quite awhile now and they feel great. No pinching, rubbing or blisters! This is my third pair of Forsakes (I have a pair of black Contours and the azure Cascades). The Thatchers round out my need for a boot to use on more difficult hikes. I like the rugged look of these and am enjoying their lightweight feel. Forsake has quick, helpful customer service and sells a high quality shoe. I can’t wait to put the Thatcher to the test at Thanksgiving when I head to the hiking trails in the mountains of North Carolina.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Speck from Great casual hikers I bought these, broke them in on some casual walks, and then wore them on a hot and dusty climb in AZ. Would have given them 5 stars but I did experience a little rubbing/blister formation on the hike. It was extremely hot, and the boots seemed to retain the heat which probably added to this. Other than that, excellent fit and comfort. I anticipate these being my go to boots for some time to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Britt from Way too narrow I love the look of these boots and the mentality behind Forsake's business, so I was very excited to buy them. However, these boots are far too narrow in the toe box. The sides of the ball of my foot were pinched before I even tied them up. Please make your footwear in a wide (D) width! Not all women have narrow feet and it is painful when the only options are narrow shoes! I would buy the men's version but they don't make a small enough size to compare to my women's 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel from The BEST women's hiking boots. I am in LOVE with these new hiking boots. This is my third pair of Forsakes and I've been so pleased with the performance and the style - I always get compliments on the trail. The Thatcher's fit, cushion and waterproofness are totally on point. They're great for the trail and just wearing out and about when I need a good boot, especially in wet weather in the winter here in Colorado. Really pleased with these, and the company behind them + their sustainability efforts. 10/10 will continue to buy Forsake boots... maybe I need the plum Thatchers, too. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rach from Excellent multi-purpose boot I broke my boots in on a wilderness vacation— lots of hiking on uneven terrain, horseback riding, and crunching in the snow and slush. These boots held up so well, they still look brand new after the trip. No blisters or sore spots on my feet or ankles, despite wearing them exclusively for several days. Love these boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by llarson from Great boots I just used these for a 5 day trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. We had rain and snow and these boots kept my feet warm and dry. Plus they are super comfy. I would suggest breaking them in before wearing on a long hike ( which I didn’t do and got blisters) but after that they have been great! I’m totally going to buy the black color too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Life-is-good from Surprise! They're perfect. Bought these boot/shoes hoping they would fit, etc. but was a bit worried. But they are perfect! At first I thought they were a bit "flat-footed" so I used my orthotics to support my arch, as I always do with boots, and no problem. I wear these Thatchers all the time now, they are supremely comfortable, I like the ankle support, easy to put on and lace up. Excellent!
