Red Wing Heritage

Red Wing Heritage Logo
Red Wing Shoes® was built on America’s great promise; if one worked hard enough, one could achieve anything. A big believer in this promise, Charles Beckman, a merchant in Red Wing, Minnesota started on a mission. From his Main Street shoe store, he saw firsthand the need for durable, comfortable boots. In 1905 he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company®. Word spread quickly about the quality and comfort built into every pair and the company prospered.
Today, a third generation of employees, located just down the road from the original factory, continue to build boots in this tradition by using the same craftsmanship and attention to detail. Triple-stitched seams, sturdy welt construction and rich leathers are signature elements. Over a century of Red Wing Heritage® goes into every boot.

Takes a few months to break in. Do not size down if using an insole, which is necessary as there is no padding/support. Lifetime boot. Can send back to RedWing for new soles. Purchased Chippewa and Thorogood. Seems like I always go back to the RedWings.

I was glad I took the recommendations about sizing down one full size. They fit perfectly when they came. It might be a rough break in process for some, but they're fairly similar to the break in process on Clarks Desert Boots. Wear some comfortable boot socks to help the break in process. I haven't felt any pain during the process but I could see how some would.

A nice chukka, I have been trying to find a good desert-style boot for a long time, and I am pretty happy with these. The leather is nice and thick, the removeable insole a plus, the color (Muleskinner) goes well with jeans, khakis, navy trousers, even dress-down a summer suit. These are comfortable for walking on pavement and other surfaces, and the shape is pretty close to classic. I find Clarks are much too narrow, where this feels true to size and width. Some suggest sizing Redwings down, so I tried both my usual 10 and a 9.5. I could fit in the 9.5, but found it hard to get on and off. The arch support is mostly a result of the stiffness of the leather (that breaks in) and the insole, so if you need a lot, you might need a different insert. The suede is much thicker than on other desert boots (maybe full-grain?). These feel much more durable, but are not as cool and breathable in warm weather. As a result, Redwings need much more breaking in, but have become comfortable and good-looking with some wear. Some minor quibbles: I would prefer real crepe to this odd molded-foam look alike, and a proper heel. I am not sure this sole will be much more durable, and it is no better on wet surfaces, it also does not look resoleable. The laces are slightly absurd: much too-stiff and too-brightly colored: they look like workboots. I will replace them with flexible laces in a more subtle color for the way I wear these shoes.

If you are used to cheap, glued together shoes/boots then these will be a different experience. First of all, size down from your brannock measurement. Down .5 size with normal volume feet and 1 full size for lower volume feet. I see some people mentioning going down 1.5 or even 2 sizes and I think that's why there are so many complaints on the break in being brutal. It's really a testament to the boot that they still managed to break in when they are sized down too far. They will feel stiff at first but will get more comfortable every time you wear them. Eventually they will become custom molded to your feet. These have literally become more comfortable than my New Balance sneakers, and my NBs are quite comfortable. The only reason I reach for my sneakers now is if it's too hot out for boots. Additionally, these will last forever with proper care and can be resoled. They cost more but will cost less in the long run because you won't be frequently replacing cheaper boots. Get these boots in the right size and you won't regret it.

I am a self employed home inspectors. For 25 years I have only worn Red Wing boots . The two styles that work for me were discontinued . My requirements were a flat sole so I wouldn't tract into clients homes , a crepe sole so I wouldn't slip on asphalt shingles , moisture proof and basically a good quality supportive boot. I tried some cheaper alternatives that just didn't work. Then I found out about Rover. I love these boots ! After I found out how good they were I bought a second pair . That way I can take my time if a pair needs to be properly cleaned and restored. . I normally wear 10 , 9 1/2 fit me perfectly. . These boots are the best yet of any Red Wing boot I've ever worn !

I have high arches so I always add arch support. That’s no big deal. The important thing to note is that these are my 5th pair of redwings and they are BY FAR the most comfortable out of the box. I guess the leather is softer. I usually have to wear them for about 1 month solid to break in AND stretch them with boot heavy-duty stretchers while spraying them with rubbing alcohol and water. If you are looking for something that doesn’t look like you are headed to the construction site and had a comfortable feel out of the box, get these and don’t think twice!

I believe I purchased this belt a-little over a year ago...... from Zappos and LOVE LOVE this Red Wing belt. Why? VERY well-made and solid construction that last from wearing it, every darn day. After gaining weight, I had to buy a new wardrobe and decided to have less of everything, so one causal belt and another dressy. I WAS a bit hesitant to try this brand, but VERY happy I did. Not a designer/name brand I'm familiar with, but certainly a brand I NOW can rely on for my belt. I got the 40" waist (belt size) for 38" wait - just a little info for guys, always go up two inches in your belt size. Currently, I have to now get a much smaller size since I've lost the weight.

This is my second pair of these. I also have the Copper Leather. They are amazing boots and look great with everything, however, they don’t start out as amazing. When you get them, they are exceptionally tight across the top of the foot to the point where it’s painful, but they do break in after about a month, which is longer than any other Red Wings I have owned and currently own. Once you’re past this stage, they’re flat out awesome. That’s why I bought a second pair. Well with the money.

I have a wide foot and generally wear an 11.5 in Merrell hiking sneakers (which run wide), but 12 in most narrower shoes. I also have flat feet which require that I wear a 3/4-length orthotic insert to prevent my arch from collapsing. I ended up going to a Redwing store and trying on a bunch of sizes. The sales-person that measured my foot insisted that a 10.5 D or 11 D (regular width) would be perfect and would stretch to fit even though I found that both crushed my toes together. 11.5 D was the only regular-width size I could get my orthotics into and which didn't crush my foot, but they were way too long. Switching to the wide sizes I found that the 10.5 EE was perfect for my feet. On my [slightly] larger foot it was just a bit more snug than I'd like for the long-term and my smaller foot was perfect. Since the store only had the old-style smooth sole I waited and ordered the Amber Harness color from Zappos with the new mini-lugged sole. The first 3 days of wearing them I found that the laces dug into my foot and there were a variety of other sore spots on my feet from uncomfortable pressure. I'm now on my 6th full day of wearing them and I'm no longer noticing discomfort or pressure points. They aren't quite "comfy" yet, but they don't apply painful pressure through the laces any more when walking uphill.

These make me look cooler than I am. I will say they are a bit hard at first and hit my ankle as I walk, but it seems like they'll break in nicely.

Bought these for my boyfriend, and he loves them. He has a pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers in an 11, but had to size up to 11.5 in these. The break-in period is pretty brutal, but it's totally worth it.

Once i dialed in the right size, I'm typically a 101/2 D, but needed the EE, the chukkas felt quite comfortable and required very little break in time. in fact, i wore them for a 4 hour walk around Washington DC on pavement and shoes felt better than hiking boots. The sole offered good support and cushioning and the leather felt sturdy and comfortable.

Gorgeous boot. Obviously a lifetime purchase. I'm a true 10.5D in Nike and New Balance. The leather will eventually contour to your feet. I recommend starting a whole size smaller.

This is an update to a negative review; after getting a pair that actually fits, I've come around on these. If they're too big, the slippage is only going to be accentuated by the stiffness of the leather. If that's your situation, send them back and get a smaller pair. Yes, they are super-stiff out-of-the-box, but that’s because they're built like brick outhouses. I will own these boots for the rest of my life (I'm 41). There's something magical about a pair of boots that you know will be with you through the progression of life's chapters, especially in the disposable world in which we currently live.

I was SO excited about ordering these, and was not disappointed when they arrived. They slid on my size 7.5-8 feet with no issue, and fit like a dream. After breaking them in over a few wears they literally fit perfectly, and I’ve received so many compliments. Great buy!

Cute boot, but did not fit in all the necessary places for my short wide foot. Bought a 1/2 size up and was narrow in toe area and had a short, funky foot feel. Did not think they would get comfortable with wearing. Maybe for a slim foot. But it was a cute boot.

I was so excited to see that Red Wing made these for women now. My old pair is a men's boot in which they stopped making the smaller sizes. I think this is the best quality work boot available on the market. I own a farm and I'm on my feet most of the day. Thank you Red Wing and thank you Zappos !!

I love the look of these boots. They go great with skirts and dresses as well as jeans. I was able to walk 2 miles on them on first wear and they’re constructed in a way where I never feel unstable even though they have a considerable heel. I did use my shoe stretcher for these, as the top grain leather is super stiff. I’m very happy with these boots.

These are beautiful boots and made in the US. I am a 7 1/2 every pair of shoes, boots, etc are 7 1/2. I was so excited to get them, but I could not get them on. I could not get my heel in the boot. Using the the side pulls was no help because it collapsed the leather behind it. If it had a pull on the back I think I might have been able to get them on. Spent 15 minutes trying to get them on. My secretary said maybe there is some type of boot shoe horn needed. Had to send these back. Very disappointed because as soon as I saw them I fell in love with them. Although the above says felt true to size, felt true to width and moderate arch support, I don't know if that is true or not since I couldn't wear them.

Love these shoes! Super cute with jeans, wide leg pants and tights with skirts/dresses. I think the heel height is perfect: gives you some extra height without putting too much pressure on the ball of your foot. I do think they might run slightly narrow though. My feet are on the narrow side so they actually fit me better than I expected, but just something to keep in mind if you like/need wider shoes.

I don't understand the degree of loyalty people have to these boots. They are terribly uncomfortable out-of-the-box; I agree with a previous reviewer's characterization of them as "torture devices." Why I should put myself through several weeks (or more) of extreme discomfort when there are so many other well-made boots for less money that feel good when you first put them on?
