Rated 5 out of 5 by whidbeyislandusa Very Comfortable Work Boots I spent a great deal of time trying on practically every model of work boot in the store before finally settling on these for their comfort. They have aluminum safety toes that qualify them for industrial work while having the sort of appearance and comfort you can use for many home uses. The only downsides I can think of is that 1) they are "not waterproof", but this is only in the strictest sense; meaning that the tongue at the very top is connected with elastic material and not waterproof seal. These are pefectly waterproof unless you step in a puddle that goes up to your ankle. I applied bee wax sealant to mine and they work great. 2) I don't like that they're made in China. and 3) They have an adequate heel for climbing ladders, but not as defined as some as the more traditional heavier boots. Those things aside, these are very comfortable and get me through long shifts where I'm on my feet for long periods of time in wet and slippery conditions. October 20, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Billy Only good for less than 8 months I purchased two pair of these boots since they were comfortable and easy to break in. I wear them 8 to 12 hours a day 6 days a week and both pairs failed in the same amount of time. The laces don't last more than 5 months and just as the others mentioned the lacing in the heals tear out leaving your heels exposed. If they could get better lacing in the heels I would be willing to purchase another pair. At this point I'm going to have to give up on red wing shoes. I'm sure if they were made in America the quality would be better. Avoid these boots.... September 29, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Harold66 Stitching came apart This is my second pair of Redwing workboots. I chose these after the recommendation of a work associate. Should of did my research instead. I've had these since October 2013; 11 months. My last pair lasted 4 years of hard use. But they we're well maintained and cared for. The same for these current ones. Out of the box they are extremely comfortable with minimal break in period. The stitching should have been a no go at first sight being that seemed rather thin and exposed in areas that could rub up against something sharp, which could cause serious ware. I'm very disappointed in this pair and hopefully can get these replaced. September 10, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by g30542e Extremely comfortable, but..... Returned these boots yesterday, after wearing 5 days a week for four and a half months. The stitches around each heel came undone.The sales person wanted to have them repaired, I requested, under the terms of the warranty, to get a full refund & get a pair assembled in the U.S. August 10, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sonicfreq Owned them for one year I ride motorcycles everyday wearing these. I have a desk job, wear them 7 days a week. I have noticed no problems with mine. They are very comfortable. That's my two cents! April 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stasher1 Wow, I guess I should've done more research before buying... I've been wearing Redwing boots since the late 90's and have always been pleased with the performance, comfort, and durability...but these boots are simply awful. I've only been wearing them for about 7 months as a QC inspector (basically all I do is walk around and watch other folks work) and they're already coming apart at the seams. Pitiful. I'm going to box mine up and take them back to my local store to see what they can do for me. April 13, 2014

by Adutchguy Fell apart sooner than expected. I also bought a pair of these mid 2013. So I have had them longer than the other reviewer. But they are coming apart at the front. They are comfortable. But I have had $60 boots from Fred Meyer outlast these and in worse conditions. Used to be a tradesman on construction sites all day. These boots only saw a couple months at Boeing and some light work around the yard. I very much hope they will honor some sort of warranty. I really thought Red Wing was known for quality.
