Rated 4 out of 5 by Adams12 Be prepared for the break-in period I bought a pair of these boots six months ago and I'm glad to say they are starting to feel comfortable when worn for an extended period. I wear them for eight to ten hours, five to seven days a week. The first three weeks the heavy seams on the sides made them uncomfortable after a few hours. I am glad to report that after about six weeks and a good pair of insoles, I have eliminated that problem. Based on how these boots have worn, if I keep them clean and oiled, they should last for years. Worth the money and discomfort associated with break-in. October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rick Best boot ever I went to a Redwing Shoe Store when I was 18 to buy a good pair of work boots, and that was 41 years ago. This model was the one I bought. I had planned on going on an adventure our west working laborer jobs to get by on, so I needed a good pair of work boots. I have bought Redwing since then, but wasn't aware that this model was still around. I will be ordering these soon! I have told this story to people over the years whenever the subject came up of good work boots. I am thrilled that I can get these once again. In my opinion, they are the best and most comfortable I have ever worn, not to mention they look great! Thanks Redwing for bringing this model back. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by stybz TOUGH! I have had a pair of these boots since 1998 and they are STILL in great condition. You cannot go wrong buying them for hunting or work. The sole is indestructible, the leather is very soft and thick. I bought another pair a couple years ago just in case they become obsolete! And......yes-MADE IN THE USA!!! July 25, 2014

by oldschool The Original Irish Setter - Best Value in an Outdoor Work Boot Red Wing discontinued these boots for decades. Now I've the pleasure to own another pair for the last 3 years hunting, hiking, fishing, gathering firewood, etc. For a handmade working boot there is no better value than these 899's. Snow Seal worked into the stitches and a pair of thin poly socks under some sturdy wool socks and you are ready for everything.One last point, these boots used to be the FAVORITE boot of outdoor working WOMEN hands down! Consider offering women's sizes again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kcav The Best American Made boot My 899s will last me a life time and are the most comfortable shoes I own. The Craftsman at Red Wing made these just for me. I know because the date of manufacture was the same month I ordered them. They will last 100 times longer then the boots made overseas and will be a joy to wear. The choice was easy. April 7, 2014
