Rated 5 out of 5 by LongTines Great Boot These boots feel like your wearing tennis shoes at work all day. Working for the railroad you are on your feet all day switching on ballast, grease, oil anything you can throw at them. I know they say no waterproofing but I have yet to had them leak. When cold weather comes around a good warm sock is all you need. Can praise them all day but just a simple thanks to Red Wing for making great boot that the blue collar american can wear and trust. Thanks Red Wing August 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by fishwho13 The 2408 lacks This boot sole will not handle digging ditches. The sole is not safe for oilly surfaces. The steel toe comes lose from the inside after squatting for long pieriods. I have worked oil field for the past seven years and have to buy a new pair of boots about every 6 months because they do not last even when I use the proper oils and proper up keep methods. This is the only boot I have found in my size that I can work in. Other than that I love red wing boots and will continue buying and wearing them. I have wore red wing boots for 18 years. Red wing boots are comfortable in general and I love wearing them. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikemm Family affair As a kid I remember watching my dad get up and strap on his 2408's every morning. He always bragged about his shoes and that's all he ever wanted for a gift. When it came time for me to work on my own I knew I wanted redwings. After looking at loggers I went down to the store and got fitted. As I waited, a man walked in wearing the same 2408's my father had and I desided to try on a pair. I fell in love with them and wore them for about 3 years before buying a new pair today and I couldn't be happier. I've worn them on long hikes, in auto shops, wood working and construction and even on the ranch. These shoes hold up to anything you throw at them and with a little spay silicone can be completely waterproof and still breath. All I can say is, I guess dad was right April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hponce915 Tried the rest, found the best boot I'll ever use I use to use cheap boots for work until my company started offering boot allowances and referred us to red wing. I went to the local store here in El Paso, TX and the sales associate measured my foot and referred me to a 2408. I wanted a set of logger boots, but he recommended the 2408 due to me having flat feet, it would be easier on my back. Boy was he right! I had my first pair for over 3 years, I still have them, use them for around the house projects, but then I was going to try a few other brands as others tried them and recommended, like Chippewa, danner and Justin, I tried chippewas and Justins and they were no match against my 2408 red wings, by the 3rd hour at work my feet were dying, had to come back home to get my old red wings. So I returned those other boots, went back to my red wing store and bought my 2nd set of 2408 boot. I work in the communications industry, Im on ladders climbing poles and on a bucket truck. These boots are all I will wear. thanks Red Wing for making a quality, comfortable, long lasting boot. Well worth the money April 6, 2014
