Rated 5 out of 5 by The only duty boot I will own. As a firefighter I've had three pair of duty boots in twenty years, all redwing. One pair got lost. The other two I still have and wear o duty. I have the second pair so I can swap them out while one pair is getting resoled. I've tried other work boots and none hold up. These are amazing boots and are very well made. The factory sole is great for a wet floor but doesn't do too well out doors. It also wore down pretty fast. I have our cobbler put vibrates on them and they work great.The fact their made here is icing on the cake. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard Choices I recently visited my Red Wing shoe dealer to take my boots in for new zippers and soles. I am an urban area firefighter and have been wearing this model for 23 years. These old boots have stepped in most everything. After all this time they have kept going strong. Some of the weathering cracks started concerning me last year so I kept them in the locker during the snow. So, after talking with my local store, 75.00 for soles and 35.00 for new zippers led me to purchase a new pair. Only another 9 years to go in my career, so I expect these should last just fine. There is no better boot for fire service. Remember, this style of boot is like a baseball glove or pair of good leather work gloves. They take a little time to conform to your feet for maximum comfort. Thanks Red Wing for keeping Americans working, and all the American workers keeping Red Wing going strong. July 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 20 years and going I started in 1995 with this boot. 20 years later still the same boot with no problems. If you want a really comfortable sole, get the vibram sole put on for 30 dollars. You will not regret it. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and well made boots I have had my boots for 2 years. I use them while riding my motorcycle. They are just tall enough that I don't have to wear rain gaiters. These boots have never leaked and I have ridden through heavy rain for hours. They fit my feet perfectly which makes them very comfortable to wear. During cross country rides I have had these boots on my feet for 12 plus hours a day for 10 straight days. They are also very comfortable to walk in. These are the best boots I have ever owned. The fine quality of these boots are evident when you examine them. June 1, 2015

Rated 2 out of 5 by Awkward fit I *wanted* to like these boots, as they are American made by UFCW workers. However, they're an awkward fit for me. The slant of these boots causes my toes to slide forward into the steel toecap and my heel to rub when I walk despite there being a minimal amount of free length. Only way to keep my foot back is to tighten the laces down by an uncomfortable amount.Pros:Made in USAUnion qualityWide, stable soleCons:Soles wear quicklyOdd fit, feet slide forwardConstruction is thin leatherSteel toe cap is uncomfortable January 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of the best pairs of any shoes I have ever owned. Period. I purchased my first pair ever of Redwings around 2008. I was working at the time in heavy industrial oil refinery environments, lots of walking, lots of chemicals, lots of wear and tear. After a couple of fitment issues with other shoes I decided to go with Redwings..... best decision I ever made. I purchased the 4473 model because of its simple design. The leather is soft and supple, and almost elastic around my foot. I have walked miles and miles in these shoes with marginal wear on the soles. Comfort and Durability are 10 out of 10. I was heart broken when I lost my first pair at a job site in the oil fields of California. Now i have a new pair, identical to the old one and many miles to go. Thanks a million Red wings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Boots These boots are awesome, I use them all year round. They resemble the boon dockers I used to wear on the flight deck of aircraft carriers. I use them for riding boots on my Harley. I've worn the pair I have now for 7 years with one sole replacement. I also wear them when I do any mechanic work on cars or bikes. When I bought them I also got the zippers so I never have to lace or tie them. The Red Wing store where I bought them called them fireman's boots. Great bang for the buck in my book.
