Product description

This style can truly be considered the classic American work shoe. In the early 1900s, when Red Wing Shoe Company first began to service rural America, this style of shoe became vastly popular across the country. Versatile and reliable, it was used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. It was the all-purpose shoe for many years in many industries. Today, the Blacksmith is built using premium Red Wing leathers and a durable Vibram 430 Mini-lug sole. The extra height of this six-inch style keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, while the classic construction keeps feet comfortable even after long hours of work.

Care Instructions:

For Light Cleaning: Use warm water and a soft bristle brush to remove stuck-on dirt. Then use a clean, dry cloth to wipe away any remaining excess dirt. For Deep Cleaning: For heavily soiled areas, use a clean cloth or brush to apply Red Wing Shoes Leather Cleaner. Wipe the cleaner away with a damp cloth and allow the leather to dry.

For Conditioning: Proper conditioning helps preserve the finish and life of your footwear. Use Red Wing's All Natural Boot Oil, Mink Oil or All Natural Leather Conditioner. You can apply these conditioners with your fingers, soft cloth or sponge. Below, you will find the recommended conditioner to use with each of our Red Wing leathers.

To Protect: Add extra protection to preserve your footwear. Red Wing Leather Protector provides an invisible shield from water, dirt, oil and mud. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistan

4.0 out of 5 stars Great boots after a week of break-in pain
By Jason Farrell on March 28, 2018
I normally wear a size 13, but ordered one size down as is suggested and though the initial fit was slightly snug, it was not uncomfortable, and there was plenty of room in the toe box to wiggle my toes. Not quite enough room for an insole, I discovered, but thicker socks do just fine for added comfort. After a few days of breaking them in over 20 miles, I can almost forget I'm wearing them, except for the reminder of some bruising on one of my big toes where the upper toe box crease hasn't formed yet. Almost there.

I have only two minor issues with these boots: The first is that they arrived out of the box with a large smear of shoe glue stuck to the leather which I had to spend about 10 minutes trying to scrape off without damaging it. And two, the length of the boot tongues don't match; the right boot tongue is almost a whole inch longer than the left. For many people this manufacturing defect would be enough to warrant a return, but since I almost always wear my jeans over my boots, I think I can live with the goofy asymmetry. I understand that these are hand-made in the USA, and that human variances are to be expected, but for $300 you would at least expect the leather to be cut from the same templates and thus the tongue lengths to be nearly equal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome boots
By Ryan of the East Coast on May 20, 2017
UPDATE 5/26/18:
Shoe lace finally broke on left boot. Wasn't kidding about the waxiness mentioned previously. Not the best shoelaces. BUT replacement shoelaces are an easy remedy. The boots (though I need to polish them again) are still holding up and are probably at their most comfortable right now; the leather has formed around my feet really well after near-daily wear since first purchased. I still would recommend these boots.

ORIGINAL:
These boots are great. They fit just as expected. Really stiff when you first get them but, once they wear in, they form quite comfortably. Pretty good quality craftsmanship, except the shoelaces are really waxy, somewhat short, and overall tough to keep tied securely. I'm looking forward to these lasting and me not having to buy a new pair of footwear for a long while. Worth investing in. Note: photos I've attached are about a week into daily wear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great boot. Try to test fit if you can in a store.
By Tremayne M Blair on May 13, 2019
Great boot. Standard width is not great for wide footers or those intent on wearing thick wool sock(which we all should be). Toe box is roomy just that width was narrow. Had to improvise on stretching them to fit. Love to copper color. I got the boot cream which does not darken at all. The Bick 4 conditioner does not darken these as well and is the better option than the Red Wing brand. These are very comfy after breaking them in. I do suggest that if you are able to, go to the store and try these on first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great boots! A bit lighter in color than expected.
By Rich on September 5, 2016
Like most red wings they run one half size larger. I ordered the briar oil slick...I'll be honest I was expecting a dark, rich, reddish brown but when I opened the box they were a bit spotty and lighter than expected. Not a big deal though, I used a light coat of Red Wings leather conditioner and it brought out all those deep reds you see. The leather is surprisingly supple compared to my Iron Rangers and the sole felt a bit cushiony as well. First day I wore them it was walking around in downtown Disney and not a single blister to speak of. Love these boots and can't wait to watch them age. Highly recommend! The photo shoes the boots coloration before (on top) and after the conditioning (on the bottom)
