This boot requires break-in. I received these boots June 13, and it is now July 11th. As of about a week ago, these boots have been absolutely comfortable (comparable to my Birkenstocks). Before that, I received a couple bruises on the ankles and calves, and a couple blisters on my big toes. That seems like a deal breaker, but these boots are miles superior, particularly in durability, to boots of even slightly less cost. Also, the blisters were mostly the result of wearing them to a museum the first day I had them. Regardless, I have no doubt I will still be wearing these in twenty years. If you're looking for a pair of rugged, wear-anywhere-with-anything-forever boots, not many will stand up to the Beckmans.

I love how fast Zappos was with the delivery of the shoes. When I opened the box and saw the boots, I was very excited with the craftsmanship of the shoes. Overall it looked great. But this is where the positives stopped. When I tried the boots on I knew it was stiff and the leather needed to be broken in. I contemplated for a while if I should keep it or not as the fit was not quite right/comfortable. The next day I tried wearing them again and noticed that I needed foot sole inserts, got them and still they are not comfortable!? I noticed the tongue of the boots where it 'folds' over is rubbing on the top my feet. Tried to make some 'modifications' by cutting the tongue where it attaches, longer and that helped a little. But still not solving the fit issue.... Overall the shoe was tight at some areas on the front of the foot while the heel has no support when walking. The pain is unacceptable for a pair of boots that cost so much.

After reading lots of contradictory reviews regarding sizing (some said they were a 1/2 size too large, while others sad the exact opposite), I went into a Red Wing Shoe Store to try them on. For those who haven't been to one of these stores, they are very nice and comparable to a high-end boutique as far as service is concerned. Size: I tried on a 9.5D, 10D, and a 10.5D as I am a 10D in Johnston and Murphy Shoes. The 9.5 was perfect if I never wanted insoles or to wear a sock heavier than a light-weight cushion. The 10.5D were too large even with an insole and heavy sock. If you do not want an insole, then I would say the running advice of a 1/2 size smaller seems true. If you want an insole and/or heavier socks, than I would say these are true to size. A Sole-Less Boot: These boots are incredibly well made as far as the outsole, midsole, and uppers are concerned. The upper is constructed from premium leather, which means long durability. It also means little breathability, so be prepared for these to be a warm boot ideal for three season wear. The outsole is a combination of leather and rubber, which I find both attractive and practical. There is no insole. The salesman told me he wore his without an insole and that over time the leather footbed molded to his feet. That all sounds fine, but I like a lot of support. So, I purchased a set of Superfeet Orange insoles. These fit perfectly into the size 10D and have made the boots super comfortable as far as footbed is concerned right off the bat. They also nullified a bit of heel slippage in the right boot. To insole or not to insole will be a matter of personal preference, but when you try them on or order them, I would recommend thinking about whether or not you wanted that feature. Breaking In: These boots even with an insole do have a break in period of time comparable to other well made boots. Everything reviewers say about the Red Wing Ankle Effect is true. Just be prepared and get through it. Cons: My only complaint with the boot is with the laces. I hate the waxed cotton that comes with the boots. First, they make it difficult to take the boots on and put them off because they refuse to move easily. Second, I always find waxed laces cut into my fingers when tightening. Finally, I find that waxed laces hate humidity and never survive a DC summer without snapping. Red Wing salesman through in a complimentary replacement pair of laces that were not waxed cotton and these greatly improves the boot. They don't look as nice, but they are far more practical. Overall, a great, solid, high-end boot that can function in both rugged and dress scenarios.

I'd also recommend: Wolverine 1000 mile boots

The construction of these boots is exceptional. The stitching is second to none and the leathers are buttery, but strong. I have been through many different boots in my 38 years, and these are the finest I've owned. Worth every penny. Give them about 2-3 weeks to break in to "your" feet and you won't look back. It's hard to consider another brand after wearing Red Wing.

This boot is not only beautifully put together but VERY sturdy. The sizing is (as some of the other reviews on Red Wings informed me) a half size or so large, so you want to order a half size down from your usual. The boot itself is simply put together, which I like, and I don't need to have worn them long to tell that they will last me a long time. I suspect it'll be a few days before I can actually use them as my regular day to day shoes, so be prepared to wear them around the house for a while to break them in. Though a bit pricey, this boot will last me a long time and I think the investment was well worth it. I love Zappos. Everything about it is awesome, especially the uncanny shipping. no sooner had I ordered these boots, then they were already in front of my door. Simply spectacular. Thank you Zappos.

I am a journalist who works in varied situations around the world and was looking for a tough boot with a classic look. I fell in love with these online and ordered. I've had them 6 months and am largely happy. A few notes: They run long and narrow. I bought a 9.5, which is a bit too long, but even that size was so narrow I had a hard time getting my not-very-wide foot in at first. It is now fine, but only after a month-long, blister-studded break-in and only if I wear really heavy socks to keep my foot from sliding forward and back. Also, the insoles are hard and provide no cushion. They do mold to your feet over time, sort of like Birkenstocks (though not that comfortable), which makes walking and standing for long periods fine. I wouldn't want to run in them, though. For the price, you'd think Red Wing could add a little cushion. Last bit for those wanting a dressier boot: Since the Amber leather got scuffed, I have had an impossible time getting the color back. Oil and polish on the scuffed leather turn it a darker color than the non-scuffed bits. I've tried all sorts of polishes and can't get the scuffed toes to match the rest of the boot; the dark patches make them look trashier, in my opinion. I recently bought a pair of Iron Rangers, which I wear much more. They are lighter, break in quicker and fit my foot better, though they don't seem as sturdy as the Beckmans. Both are great boots in the end, depending on what you're looking for.
