Rated 1 out of 5 by not the quality boot i expected the company i work for recently implemented a new rule where we need lace up boots i normally wear slip on boots this is my first pair i bought January it is now middle of march and i am extremely unhappy with them i tried them on in store walked around exc.... took time to really feel them out well less then 3 months later the interior of the boot still in tacked but very uncomfortable feel due to feels like its bunching up under feet especially under the toe area i sweat a lot and these boots are not good for summer time i understood that but that is fine with me when i first got the boots i had plenty of room for my feet now they are felling crowded in the boots i am a die hard red wing fan but im sorry this is not the quality product i expected i will continue to be a red wing customer 15+ years with red wings on my feet nothing else feels right i would recommend red wings any day of the week but these here i would NEVER recommend and would push friends and family away from this model March 13, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Comfortable but low quality material Have had 2 pairs of these boots with the same positives and negatives. I mainly work indoors and the boots were very comfortable to wear walking around but like many other reviews the toe held up for only about 3 months and the sole and shoe tore apart shortly after that which makes the waterproofing fairly useless. For a small fortune paid for and the longevity of the boots i was to say the least unimpressed. The boa lace system is genius and i have replaced them with another boa system but red wing needs to reevaluate the price or not cut corners. I would gladly buy another pair if the problems are corrected. Seems everyone has had the same issues as myself. February 15, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by great for equipment operators junk for people who walk Thaught I was buying a quality pair of boots. Well over 250$ for a pair or flip flops is rediculous. Toes showing after 2 months and heals ripping just about same time. I was able to get warranty after 9mo and then essentially falling apart at seams. Although I was blamed for improper removal of boots using heel as a pulling point..... so a new pair was given to me. Great maby these will last. Nope 3 months later same thing. Not once did I use heel as a pulling point. These are a cheep knock off boot with a red wing lable. I have since retired them and am very happy with my 80$ farm and fleet boots. Thank you November 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and Tough I bought these boots for ATV riding. The type of riding I do requires 4 wheel drive. Through mud, snow, creeks ,whatever my feet are dry and warm. No need to replace laces that are rotting or muddy. When I come home I just hose them off. I never had a pair of boots so durable to protect my feet. I suggest wool socks to pull the perspiration away from your feet for those who complained of the boots being to hot.They were well woth the price since I've never had to buy another pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Loved the boa closure, boots were junk. I bought these boots for working on ships and in shops. They were falling apart after 3 weeks. For over $250 these boots should last well over a month. I would love to have the Boa closer on a good pair of boots, there are several companies in Europe using them, let's make it happen RedWing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for the money This is a good fitting boot right out of the box and straight to work, you will not have to break them in. That being said... the boots are very hot and will make your feet sweat no matter the temperature outside. I owned this pair for a year and the boots were falling apart already. The toe material is separated from the boot and it looks like a giant air bubble on one boot and the other toe the material is already ripped and the steal in showing. The outside material on both heels where the material meets the rubber sole is stretched out and it feels like my heel is slipping in the boot. This is the only pair of Red wing boots I have to throw in the trash. October 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good work boot for Oilfield or Construction I bought theses from the local Red Wing store. I paid a small fortune for them, because I thought I was getting the same boot my cousin had purchased (2942). I wasn't aware at the time of the difference between the two. The boots are made well though, a few differences aside. The toe's & insoles however didn't hold up as well as I would have liked. Depending on your field of employment I recommend these boots for out in the elements type field. The lacing system alone is worth the money though, especially if you work in mud all day! In short it's having the support of lace up boots, with the ease of putting on & removing slip ons! September 7, 2014
