Rated 5 out of 5 by 10 years old next month the pair I am wearing now is almost 10 years old. although I don't were this pair everyday they have still seen a lot of action. Plus I like the classic style. Will be buying another pair soon. October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Look No Further, Really! I bought my first pair in 1986 and they lasted until the late 1990's when Red Wing said they couldn't resole them any more times (the uppers finally got too cracked). It was so hard to let that pair go, in retrospect, I should have kept them and just hung them up in the garage, old heroes. I have bought 2245's ever since, and once a pair is broken in, these are the most comfortable work shoes imaginable and have saved my feet time and time again. I tend to wear them off hours too just because NOTHING ELSE COMPARES! Red Wing's newer models have become too heavy, they get fatiguing after a short while. Not these: light and nimble. Oh, and if you don't like the brown, just have 'em dyed black, that's what I do. If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, these offer what you need and nothing more. October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My Go-to Red Wing Boots I have worn this style for almost 20 years at work. They are one of my two favorites. My other is Red Wing 2406 boots. They are durable, wear well, and look great. I buy a thin insole, and replace that when it gets worn. They last a long time. I usually get a new pair and delegate my old pair to home stuff like yard care or painting. I don't think you can go wrong with these. Yeah, they aren't cheap, but if they last for years and are good for your feet they are worth it. And Red Wing is a great American company that supports it's employees & families. They are great in my opinion. November 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by wear like iron! Very happy with the boots. However they reached the life of the soles at about 3 years under my weight (350lbs).I am going to get another pair shortly. September 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by wieght very heavy and not comfortable during long wearing hours , please try to reduce the wieght September 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoes Been wearing these for 20 years and on only my third pair. Redwing makes great shoes. Think I'll go a half size bigger this time so I can put a cushion insole in them. Best shoes made in my opinion. September 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Consistent and exceptional support and comfort 2245's have been helping me put food on my family's table for a decade. I've purchased at least 10 pairs of them. I work in a Urea fertilizer plant that is very tough on boots. The boots usually last 1 year in the wet, slimy, and crusty environment in which I work. Leather and Urea don't mix well but with proper maintenance this boot holds up well. I'm a heavy fellow, with slightly arched feet and these boots support my feet day in and day out. I can work a 12 hour shift and not have sore ankles or arches, even with my body weight. My workplace is a hot environment in the Ohio summers and with minimal lining the boots provide the perfect vehicle for my sweaty feet. On the other hand in the winter, appropriate socks work just fine to weather the cold weather and snow. I also recommend these boots because they are 100% USA union made with USA materials. This is the best all around boot Red Wing makes, hands down. September 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Model 2245 work boot This has been my workboot for over 25 years. Have owned a few pairs. Seems like the older ones had more of a reddish color. I feel it is the best general purpose steel toed work boot made. As a mechanic with a career from diesel bus to the railroad, it has always been my first choice. USA Pride and legendary quality.
