Rated 5 out of 5 by Possibly the best Red Wing ever! I've been a Red Wing fan for several years and I love the comfort and quality of their footwear. I have been wearing the 1102 style for the last 3 years and they were a great boot. I did have a few minor complaints however so I went to the catalog to find something better. I ran across these 899's and after researching a while decided that I'd spend the money on them. Now it's three months later and I'm happy to report that they are everything I was hoping for and more!The comfort is astounding with a good insole. I'm not sure what others are doing with theirs, but I highly recommend a good orthotic, such as Powerstep Pinnacle. They'll make a good boot a great boot! I have B width feet and ordered accordingly. They aren't as narrow as the 1102's were and that was one of the the only minor complaints I had. I think that I could order a half size smaller and it would solve that dilemma though.The only other issue I have with these is, Why to they put hooks up the calf and then at the top they put another loop. I've been thinking of having my boot shop replace it with a hook.The leather is holding up extremely well and I've been oiling them once a week. If you use some saddle soap and clean them once in a while the leather keeps really nice. I often wear them to town and they look great with a good pair of jeans.I am definitely satisfied and will buy a couple more pair if they ever threaten to discontinue this model. Great looking, comfortable, and durable, replaceable Vibram soles. What more do you need? July 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Should be great, poor leather selection PROS: Made in U.S.A., build quality*, sole/tread, looksCONS: My biggest gripe, and reason for the * on build quality is the leather selection. On the left boot, the inside piece of leather that covers ankle is thin and supple, while on the right boot, the leather is very thick and rigid. You can see in the pic I've uploaded that the left boot leather practically slouches, while the right boot is super stiff. Same for the leather that forms the toe box, except opposite in terms of softness.I wish I had noticed this prior to the expiration of the fit guarantee. Unfortunately, I bought these boots during some down time and just didn't notice the few times I wore them around the house during that period. After about 1.5 months of work wear, the difference became quite noticeable and substantial, and now it's like wearing two different boots. I don't know if the right boot will ever be like the left boot - the leather is literally twice as thick on the right boot. Poor quality control for a boot that cost me $300 including tax.I'm a solid size 12 or larger and bought these in 11. The 11 works great for length, but toes are a bit cramped (vertically) and even at 11, there's a lot of foot volume to fill up. They fit me fine, just not true to size, so be aware if ordering these online June 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Standard by Which Others are Judged The 899 is undoubtedly one of, if not THE, most beautiful boot Red Wing produces. It has an elegance that transcends its function, which is the reason I was drawn to it, and ultimately purchased it. The leather, the fit, the rugged sole, and supportive steel shank all meld into a truly iconic whole. This is truly a most have for all Red Wing aficionados! Wear it with jeans, overalls, or always compliments the attire. A simply marvelous boot. May 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by They will climb a cliff I bought the first pair two years ago. It takes several miles to get them broken in but when they are broken these are the most comfortable shoes in your closet. I am a Land Surveyor; I do a lot of forest boundary, steep brushy terrain. A simple boot, no insulation , vibram soles. They have my size 14benny! I just bought a new pair and have worn them for the past two days. They are getting broken in. I put the old pair on this morning, I didn't realize how much softer the leather is, they have really worn to my foot. They are great boots.They aren't water proof but with a good oiling you can splash through a creek and stay mostly dry. April 16, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 Don't ever discontinue! Awesome classic boot! I hate all the newer designs,cheap looking and made.Do not ever get rid of this model. February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One fine boot! I have had mine for 15 years. I still pick them up just to look at them and feel the leather. The leather is like the kind they make baseball gloves out of. Thick and tough! I have worn mine in snow, Ice and doing tree work and they perform very well. They are a heavy boot (2.5 lb per ft) so I would not buy them for long distance hiking.
