Lacing Instructions for Zipper Inserts on Thorogood Boots
Changing your Thorogood boots' laces to a zipper insert lets you put on your shoes quickly. (boots image by Sarka from Fotolia.com)

Thorogood produces a lace-in zipper insert that can be used on any of its boots. This saves time from having to lace your boots each time by adding a zipper to your boot. When selecting the zipper insert for your Thorogood boot, ensure that the eyelet count for your boot's laces matches the eyelet count for the zipper insert. These inserts are an especially good option if your laces have become frayed or if they look worn. You can lace them through the insert and give your boots a quick makeover.
