Frustration is I planned well ahead to avoid last minute hurdles that always pop up..... as it turns out my early planning is now the cause.... you're killing me Amazon and Redwing...... I sent emails to both companies... I sure hope I get a response with a happy result.
My two biggest problems with these boots is that the sole wears down very quickly and the boots are pretty much shot after one season of wearing them. All of the tread has worn down and rounded off after a year of use, and I won't wear them anywhere that I know I'll need good traction as they don't have much left. When I say the boots are shot, I'm mostly referring to the waterproofing and general structure of the canvas portion of the boot. I have holes in both boots where the foot flexes, and the water just runs in freely if they come into contact with any (one side note about the canvas is that it doesn't make them any more breathable than leather in my opinion just because of the waterproofing that's added).
I guess the bottom line is that you shouldn't expect to get more than one season out of these boots if you intend to use them regularly like a hunting boot is meant to be used. They aren't terribly expensive, and they are comfortable when they are broken in, but they won't last you very long, and you should know that in advance as you'll be buying another pair of boots in another year.Read more ›
Frist the line runs extremely small and narrow, though most shoes now seam to be getting smaller. I usually wear a 10.5 w, But with this design I had to go 11.5 just for summer single socks. The width is absolutely horrible, the hard rubber "support" sides which are angled up towards the first lace eyelet cut into the boot making it way to narrow. after about 1 hr of wear I have to switch boots as are too painful to wear.
Second is tread design. the boot does not make any grip in snow or ice, though mud and dirt is fine and clears well. However, again the "support" side angle pieces cut into the shoe, and have actually taken out any tread in that section of the sole, so a 1/4 of the sole has no tread.
Third are seams and stitching. there are seams everywhere on the boot. don't know how long till they all start to pull away but the worst is at the front toe section wear the rubber meets the fabric. after only 8 months of off and on casual wear, non work wear or rugged hiking, the front stitching is wearing loose.
a Plus side of boot is weather proof, they do seam to stay dry and wick moisture, tread does clear out well. The scent mask/ odor eater is meaning and useless.
Overall DO NOT BUY. there are other great red wing shoes at the same cost level, even better priced. I am quite upset with red wing for make such a horrible product. I did buy in off season at $99 but the cost is savings don't make up for an unwearable/ uncomfortable shoe that falls apart within a year.
These boots fit and feel comfortable in the store but don't buy them !!!! Just walk away !!
I would not ever recommend these boots for hunting or outdoors. They are poorly made and the materials will not stand up to hunting or walking in brush. I just got these boots and only after 4 days hunting grouse in Maine the nylon fabric has already torn on the side where it flexes with the rubber.. I am not sure how I can get my money back on these but if I can ensure that no one else will ever buy these boots it will satisfy me. . Unless you are wanting a pair of boots to wear will sitting on a riding lawnmower DO NOT BUY these boots. Save your money!
