Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Comfort and Protection I work on drilling rigs and these are by far the best lace up boots I have worn. Very light and Very Comfortable. I recommend these boots to every new hand on my rig and people looking to upgrade. Also has very good grip on the board. October 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great boot I used to wear the 2244, but switched to the 2280 because my feet got too hot in the warm weather. These boots are just as good, but way better in warmer weather. They keep my feet comfortable all year round and the waterproofing has been excellent. The leather will absorb some water but it never touches my feet and dries quickly. These keep my feet more level than the 2270 pecos that I have (A great boot also, but pitched too far forward for my all day walking). I do a lot of walking on metal stairs and concrete all day and the soles are barely worn. The insoles are a bit soft/squishy for my taste so I replace them with the Redbed insoles. It makes for a great combination for me. These boots offer me great protection and all day comfort no matter what I am doing. I highly recommend them. Make sure to get your feet properly measured at your dealer. September 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Offshore Great boot, has handled saltwater well, although as occasional coat of mink oil helps keep the leather moist. I've actually had the boots submerged briefly in water over waist deep, and held up well against allowing water intrusion when properly laced. Recommended for offshore work. August 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Like to rate the 2280 higher, however I really like 2280 Electrical Hazard boot, however was disappointed with the insoles that they came with them. The insole fabric began to delaminate from the insole cushsion within two days wear. Otherwise, the boots seem fine thus far; I'm only in to my second week with them. They were generally comfortable from day one. Not as comfortable as the Wolverine 3124 I wore for years until Wolverine discontinued them, and certainly not more comfortable than the Converse then Reebok EH boots I tried; but stil comfortable. For now I've tried some non-acetone spray glue to tack back down the fabric on the insoles. I imagine I'll have to look fo some aftermarket insoles though. Maybe I'll try the Wolverine Durashock insoles in them. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great light boot! I work rope access on wind turbines, which requires me to be suspended from ropes with my feet hanging for hours at a time. These boots are light enough that I don't have to deal with them falling asleep every 5 minutes. These are my first Red Wings, and I'm loving them. July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This boots are awesome Love them, they are worth the money compared to other boots either 6" or 8" like these. I purchased from a Redwing company store so I was measured on a computer measuring machine very cool showed how flat footed I am, now the machine tells him I am a 8.5 to a 9.0. First these are the king toe which feels fantastic and I wear a wide, so I use an insole which they sell so they will take up some volume I think the insole is 3.2 mm. I ended up with a 9.5 wide so much for the computer, I have worn 9.0 red wings in the past but the 1/2 size just felt better. If you never tried the king toe especially if you wear a wide try a pair on your feet will thank you.Comfortable, light and not bad looking either..... June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Boot Good boots for -10 cold. Lots of walking. Kneeling down a lot. Driving. Kicking stuff. Lifting things. Putting things down. Holding things right there for what seems like forever. Eating lunch. Mowing the yard. Changing a diaper. All in all, good and comfy all the way. May 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for less than a year I have mixed feelings about these boots. They are the most comfortable boots I've ever owned, worn them for hours and hours without issue. The problem is the outsole doesn't last long. In less than a year I wore out the soles and you cannot resole these boots. If there was a way to resole them I would give them a better review. They need to make a version like these that keeps everything the same but uses the Vibram outsole from the 2220. May 10, 2014
