Great boot. Spend the extra money and get Red Wings folks. They're worth it. The leather is so supple, yet strong, unlike some shoes that are comfy at first because they are made of inferior materials. Red Wings do take a long time to break in, but they'll be comfortable long after the the cheaper versions wear out. I wear a 10.5, and I had to return them to get a 10, so be careful. Ask yourself a question, do I need to wear thick wool socks in order for my boots to fit? If yes, you're wrong, go get suede Timbs, leave them untied and call it a day. These have to be snug when you get them so the leather can shape to your foot! If you tie them tight, and your heel still slides up and down with every step, enjoy the blisters or return them - those are your options! I wear wool socks some days and soft cotton on others, either way you should be used to these being snug. Be patient, it's worth it. I tried inserts for more comfort, forget it. I ended up with the factory insoles back in and honestly, they're fine. The 10.5's gave me some of room for insoles, but that didn't solve the heel sliding problem. So man up, and get the right size, bigger is not better. You'll have your golden years to wear orthos! Bottom line, these boots are trusty, yeah that's a great word for these. They pop on like the first baseball glove you worked so hard to break-in...you remember. Not perfect, but just what you need to get the job done.

My general comments on this boot. Not lined, a boot at this price should be lined. No lining means the seams on the side of the boot dig into the sides of your feet. The sole is so soft you feel every rock and pebble if you don't add an insert. Cheap laces for a boot at this price. No insert. A boot at this price should have some form of insert. The workmanship is good. The upper is nice leather but personally I think every part of the boot should reflect the price. To sum it it up, this boot provides an expensive upper, but everything else is equivalent to what you can get on boots that cost less than half the price.

Excellent boot; top quality in every way. They seem to be completely waterproof; I have been in downpours on my motorcycle as well as almost ankle deep in puddles in these. I wear a size 14 in most shoes (Adidas, Sperry Top-Siders, etc.) these fit perfectly in size 13. Very comfortable after they break in.

Not much that hasn't been said about these boots. One month in and they've broken in incredibly well. The quality of leather and craftsmanship is apparent, and I know I'll be wearing these for years to come. It's been mentioned numerous times, but needs repeating: Order 1 full size down! If you are on the fence, as I was, take another half size off. Folks aren't kidding when they say it. The toe box is big enough to get away with it and you won't run into heel slippage.

Aesthetically beautiful and very much worth every penny. Thanks to the reviews, I sized down from a loose 9.5-10.00 to a 9. They may feel a bit snug the first time you around, but once they are broken in after a couple of wears, they become really comfortable.

The boots are great. Like everyone advises, try to buy a size smaller than your regular size. But surprised me the most was Zappos' costumer service. I made a bunch of mistakes on my order and they promptly help me. Thank you, guys.

Wow, what a boot! I received these Red Wings a little under a month ago and have been able to march them through a generous amount of wear. At first, as expected, the leather and footbed was very stiff and a little unfriendly, but much like breaking in a pair of raw denim, they quickly warm up to you as the leather softens and the footbed molds to your feet. Listen to other reviewers when they say these boots are big! I normally wear a 9, but I get a snug fit wearing boot socks in a size 8. These boots are perfect here in the wet Seattle climate; sure to keep your feet dry and warm as the mercury plummets in the coming weeks. The aesthetic appeal of these boots goes without saying, as well as their practical utility. If I had a choice, these shoes would be my first pick in suffering through the circles in Dante's Inferno. If you are interested in picking these boots up, or are on the fence because of the considerably high price, just bite the bullet and regret will be the last thing on your mind once you get comfortable with these boots.

Absolutely amazing boots! I just got them today after swapping them for a 1/2 size smaller If you normally wear a 10.5, get a 10, or you'll have to return it These boots look sexier in real life than the pics! Also Zappos is my number 1 place to get clothes/shoes now.

I just want to say, regardless of the quality of the shoe, that the quality and customer service of Zappos.com far exceeds any retail store I've met to date. This store is simply amazing. I plan on buying all my future shoes here; you have a lifetime customer. No place else can you get such high quality prices, service, variety, and smoothness of payment - delivery process. A+.

Best boot I have ever put on my feet! Quality construction, rugged leather, and comfortable "no heel" sole. The best part about the boot is that it was made right here in America. I recommend this boot to anyone who is serious about their work or craft. Makes spending those long hours on your feet more tolerable. A true American Classic. Note - the sizing runs a good half size larger than marked. If you wear a 9 get a 8 1/2.

The leather insoles, though not quite right at first, really conformed to the shape of my feet after a few days of wearing the boots. The no-scuff rubber soles are quiet and comfortable, and I really love the look of them. They also stay dry in rain and snow! Though more expensive than similar boots, keep in mind that these are made domestically by workers who are paid a fair wage.

Really great boots. They take a while to break in - two weeks of every day wear. I'm on my feet in a cabinet shop all day long, but they feel great even after a full work day. The sole is quiet when you step, but a little slippery on wet tile. Tough leather too; you can rub scratches right out, so even after a full day of work, a little elbow grease and boot oil makes them super nice for a night out.

Classic work boot indeed. Rugged, durable, nice leather, and enduring craftsmanship. They will take some time to break in, but will certainly last a lifetime. One can always have them re-soled at a Red Wing store if need be. The color is great and scuffs can easily be rubbed out.

At first these boots were not comfortable. They were too narrow and extremely stiff. 4 weeks later, they are my favorite pair of shoes! I have never worn a shoe with this extremely high quality leather. I wear these in the snow, heat, mud, rain and my feet seem to always be perfect...I can then put them on with nice jeans or corduroys and do the whole semi dress casual look. I can walk all day. They just rock and are truly all terrain.

Great boots ! They feel better and better every day. Very much worth the price. The only gripe I have is that the tonge is attached and a little tight preventing them from being slip ons. I'm sure in time they will loosen. Otherwise, these are perfect. You cam wear these all day. Made in America.

I worked as a heavy equipment repairman for 30 years, and wore Red Wing boots exclusively. Now that I'm retired, i wanted something a little lighter and cushier than the steel toed, heavy duty safety foot ware that I wore everyday, and these are just what I was looking for. They're light and comfortable, and fit great right out of the box. Red Wings have always been more expensive than many other brands of boot,but their quality, and longevity, make them worth every penny. I couldn't be happier. Also, I checked my local Red Wing dealers before purchasing these boots from Zappos. Neither store had them in stock, and Zappos' price was lower than what they would have charged to order them for me, and I didn't have to pay the taxes, which added up to a considerable savings. Whats more,I had them in less than 24 hours! Thanks Zappos.

These are incredible, well made and comfortable boots. Everything you'd expect from Red Wing. And made in the USA, a rare thing these days for footwear. I had a little trouble selecting the proper size as they run very true. I ended up with an 11-1/2, the size I used to wear in every shoe but now only find in more expensive dress shoes. I had a pair similar to these in high school and I'm really glad to have these. They look great with jeans.

This is a very well made shoe. It is definitely waterproof and the details that they put in are great. The leather treatment was slightly smelly at first, but it went away pretty quickly. Look great with jeans.

Sturdy and comfortable - I got these to wear in the winter, when the sidewalks get slushy and slippery - have not yet had a chance to try them under those conditions, but so far I really like them. Warm, good ankle support, and good traction on wet ground. If they weren't brand new, I'd wear them downtown every day, but I don't want to get paint on them right away. Nice vintage look in a top quality shoe - price is reasonable, all factors considered.
