Rated 5 out of 5 by KipFleming Brand New Thoughts (Updated review to come) Fantastic Boot Thusfar I've had these boots for about 32 hours. So far there is only one negative thing to say, but I will save it for last.The Good-*These boots feel of genuine high quality workmanship*They are quite comfortable out of the box (I just worked a 9 hour day of construction in them and I was very pleased with the comfort level already)*They look good*I can run in them better than in any other boot I've ever worn. (we'll see if that holds true in a few months)*No HEEL or TOE blistersThe Bad-*I have taken these boots off about 6 or 7 times over the past two nights and 1 day. As a result of slipping the boot off I have a pretty nice blister on the top of both of my feet. The part on top above the arch. I'm honestly scared to take the boot off because as far as taking shoes off goes I would rate this a 10/10 on the "take shoe off pain scale". lolDon't let this push you away from choosing this boot.The seem where the leather upper is tucked and stitched together with the "shoe part" of the boot is the cause of the blister. Since I require a snug fitting boot as I slide my foot out out of the boot it gets very tight and the leather upper scrapes the top of my foot quite roughly and has literally scrape off the top little bit of skin and has created a nice blister. I have used a leather conditioner on the area and it has helped so far but is still discomforting. I trust with the break in process this will go away with no problem. I just want others to not freak out right away and return the boot.. just tough it out, use band aids and keep your feet in all day to minimized friction.. lolOtherwise this is a fantastic boot... I will right another review in 3 months or so to share my thoughts.Thanks for reading. If you have any questions please reply.I hope this was helpful,Kip, August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mack96x Never gonna wear anything else I work shut downs at refineries all over the country. This boot feels like it has a soft sole when you walk in them on concrete and grading but they last. This is not a boot that you will rush out to the truck so you can change into sneakers May 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by col44blackpool well made but in true usa style.a very smart looking boot. I was issued Redwing boots whilst employed by Brown and Root,Houston,over thirty year ago.Working offshore as an electrician,in the Norwegian North Sea,I was extremally well pleased with them.That pair eventually gave up on me whilst offshore again in Morecambe Bay,England.I had however had them mended in England.I was given another pair and am still wearing them to this day.I am jolly well pleased with Redwing.I am now retired but wear them for walking on the beach,here in Blackpool,England.On my visits to the USA,I have always gone on the prowl in the large stores,army depot store for American work gear/tools.Always well made,world known too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustAnOldFarmer Great boots for me These boots have served me well. I plan on buying another pair ASAP. Another plus, these are still made in the USA with some imported materials. December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AlexCann0n Fantastic Footwear I got these boots from a garage sale. I asked the person I bought them from how long they had worn them, and they said that they were to big for them and had never worn them. These boots lasted me eight years, and the only reason that I don't wear them now is because the soles were so worn from repeated abuse. I had to oil them with mink oil once. May 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BenjaminB Great boots I bought my 1149s in 2004 and they are still going strong. I wore them primarily as my daily work shoe while in the hospital (with hospital scrubs). They were popular with many of the male resident physicians at the time as they are comfortable while standing for several hours (in surgery). They then became my hunting/work boots. I'm always amazed on how they can become so dirty and worn, but then revived with some oil. I normally wear a size 9, but 8.5 was the proper fit in these. March 15, 2014
