Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 17reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wildland firefighting. Excellent value for the money. They run quite large, I bought a size 11 thinking it would fit, I have to wear two pairs of socks (which, if you're prone to blisters or wear them for 16 hours plus for 14-21 days at a time, isn't neccassarily a bad thing. I typically wear these with two pairs of socks and it really helps with the blisters.)These are the only pair of "fire" boots I've worn and so far I am not displeased. Personally, they were wearable for me within several days but did not become entirely comfortable until after several weeks of every day use and weekly conditioning. Not as comfortable as they could have been (break in for minimum comfort takes at least several weeks, can take a year or more for a total break in) but the stiffness was gone for me after several days. Currently still breaking them in but they are more than comfortable for myself. My pair liked to pinch right where the shin meets the foot, you can remedy this with adequate amounts of break in or by skipping the first rung when lacing.I'd reccomend a good leather conditioner/wax to aid in break in. A wax/condition every one or two weeks makes the leather quite soft and more willing to break in. Overall, these are great logging/fire boots for the money. Decent ankle support and a great value. Making you two inches taller ain't bad either! December 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by "a real pair of boots" Absolutly worth it... all-season/ all- condition multi-use boot. Buying any other brand is a waste of time and money. #TrustMe.I've done it all in these . Long boot life/durable/quality #RedwingLoggers (ask Dean Winchester LOL) November 17, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by used to be good I had a pair and they last me 10 plus years. i bought a pair 4 yeas ago and right after warranty ran out they started falling apart. I am a tree climbe and work alot but to pay that much for a boot to fall apart is crazy! November 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I did wear my red wing boots close toTen years andif I do say so myself I think I am one off the most hardest people ever to wear any boot I know by wearing Redwing tried tried tested in everyday life to be Atleast as I know are the boots that Are #1 and I am probably harder on footwear. Than 97% of anyone that does. Wear footwear November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 pair, 5 years, still wearing them, yeah I like these boots I bought 1 pair of boots because I needed a narrower fire boot (boot model #218, 9-inch, Logger, wildfire rated). I have flat and narrow feet. They measure between a "B" and a "C" width. Very few boot makers produce a narrow "C" or "B" version of their work boots or shoes. My first pair of 12-C, felt and fit so well I bought a 2nd in 6 months. The first pair did have a manufacturer's defect but it did not effect the fit or function in the slightest.In 4 years of daily use as well as prescribed fire and wildfire situations, and a subsequent 2 years of daily use these boots have held up very well. I have re-soled and had stitch repair on one pair to date. June 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life time customer My father bought me my first pair of red wings back in 1968 I was 6 year old. We lived in Alaska at that time and we had to drive all the way to Anchorage to get our shoes and boots so Mom & Dad made the best of it. Ive been a life long customer of Redwing ever since. Over the Years of working all over the world I.E. Greenland, Europe, Middleast, Asia.... Ive worked in very harsh climates subzero to blazzing 140 degree heat. I had my Redwings. The 2218's have been my favorite I have a pair that have been thru the harshest conditions this planet has to offer.They're 8 years old (Resoled) They have never let me down!!!! Keep them greased and oiled they'll take care of you. Yes they have a hard break in faze but the reward after is a great quality work boot that will protect and take care of your feet. Over the years Ive recommended Redwings to all my co-workers.... granted there not for everyones budget however I could say you get what you pay for!Just a note: Thanks Redwing!!!!! April 2, 2015
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
