Rated 5 out of 5 by These are great boots I have tried them all and for everyday outside work climbing poles these are the best. I have a pair that saved my toes from a chainsaw and they are 6 years old and re-soled 3 times. Just breaking in my 3rd pair and that is the worst part. I also have a pair of 2221 and they are my favorite all time. Red Wing boots are by far the best construction of any boot out there in my opinion. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my Red Wing loggers. I purchased my loggers because I wanted a good quality black boot. 30 yrs ago I bought a pair of the hiking boots and I still have them. I do not have a job that requires this type of boot but I love the combat boot look. Like my daughter says, "My mom wears combat boots". I also liked the "Mens" loggers because they have a higher heel and if I can gain an inch or two in my 5'2" height, I am happy. When I first purchased them, I had a hard time getting my foot into the boot but once they were on they fit like a glove. I love the quality, look, durability and fit. They are perfect and I love them. Red Wing has some of the best quality shoes on the market. I even love the slippers. I wish Red Wing would make more women's shoes. March 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by used for work(construction) and motorcycle I bought a pair in1986 used hard at work and play they look rough (excellent) but still work as well today 2015 the stitching has started to shred so I have had them stitched in the last 3 years 5 times at 12-18$ but they fit so well it's worth it. Would love to own a new pair but who can afford 300+ for boots? Paid 170$ for a motorcycle boot of supposed iconic quality, lasted 6 months worthless. January 18, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by great boot my name is mike and ive been in the trades for nearly ten years, ive found that these particular boots are not only comfortable but practical. I especially like the three inch heels they make it easy to lock into rungs of the ladder for more stability. plus they look awesome.thank you Mike. December 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect pair of boots for a real man. I have owned the same pair nine inch logger boots for the past eight years, I have the leather reconditioned every year, I have worn out three pair of Georgia Boots during this same time frame. About to purchase another pair of logger boots and the heel of my logger boots are fine. November 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worn boots replaced with new I wore the soles off of a pair. I couldn't find anyone in my area to resole them so I contacted Redwing and was told to send them in and they would do the job for $60.00. (This was a few years back.) The day I was going to send them back, one of the heels separated from the upper. I sent them back anyway. I received a new pair of loggers for the cost of the resole. After about three years of hard use, the heel separation was called a manufacturing defect! Redwing's quality and service are why my Dad wore Redwings, he started me with them as a kid and I still wear them. October 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Sole separates from the boot too soon I have been purchasing Red Wing Boots for forestry and wildfire fighting for the past 13-15 years. I started using the 699 style boot. Red Wing stopped making them about 3+ years ago, so I bought the 218 style boot, which is the updated replacement for the 699. The boot body is built well and they fit and wear comfortable once they are broke in. I have purchased approximately 6 pairs in the past 13-15 years. After 2-3 years, every single pair has started to separate from the sole. Once this happens the boots are rendered completely worthless. I have discussed this with Red Wing dealers, boot repairman and other vendors of Red Wing products. Every one of them state that this occurs all the time with the Red Wing boots. They state that it is the Red Wing poor stitching process and materials that are used to attach the sole to the boot body. The 699 style was less expensive than the new 218 style. At a $300 price tag for the 218 style, boot failure should not be occurring within 2-3 years. If Red Wing is going to be building boots for firefighters, loggers and foresters, they need to improve their sole attachment process and materials. Their process does not work for the long term with this type of use. There is nothing worse than being on a extended attack fire assignment and seeing the boots come apart from the sole. A fire is not the time to be buying and breaking in a new pair of boots. September 30, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fully detatched heel on one of my boots!!!!! Bought the boots in 2009 used them for lineman college. Then they sat until June 2013. I've used them for actual work... No climbing just linework. As of now I sent them to red wing to see if they can repair or replace them. The heel on my right boot is halfway off. The sole detached from the boot, and nearly completely off! Hopefully I just got a defective pair. If red wing replaces my boots I will use them and 're review the product after a given time. If they don't replace them. I will NEVER buy another pair again!!! I mean for $300 the boots better last for more than a year of work come on. I have had boots from Wal-Mart that last a year for $50. Hopefully red wingwill take care of me!!!! June 9, 2014
