Rated 4 out of 5 by greengenes Great boot but the laces fall short I've been wearing Redwings for 30 years and these boots, like all the others, wore like a dream from the box. The one drawback was the fact that the laces (a new style to me) were abrasive to the hands and did not hold knots well. I since replaced these and am happy, as always, with my boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TennesseeBIGfoot Big shoe for a BIGfoot When you have a 14B foot, you just can't walk into a shoe store, and say "let me have that pair"...My store in Smyrna, TN almost had what I wanted, just the wrong color in stock, but not a problem! First they measured my foot, as it had been a long time since anyone had offered to do that., and to my surprise I was a "B" and not a "A" as I thought. They brought out a brown pair to try on, nice fit, so i told them i would think about it for a while. It didn't take long for me to call them back ( a hour maybe) and order this Black pair. Great folks in Smyrna, sold just a few $$ under MSRP, and sent me a $10 off coupon for later usage!! Boots are getting softer everyday, nice support, and just plain feel good!! January 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve60 Very good boot Very good boot. Light and supportive of arches. Plenty of cushion for standing on hard surfaces all day. Long wearing sole and excellent construction and materials used. Overall an excellent boot! September 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheMTNman The gold standard for all workforce footwear I started in New Balance boots because they were one of the only ones available in wide widths. And it was also a top-quality boot. Then they officially merged their boot line as "Dunham" and it was still a quality product at first. But then I bought 3 pairs in a row, hoping I was just imaging the loss in quality... but no, the Dunham line is worthless now. I recently looked, and all their offerings are more for Hollywood photo shoots than real work.So I tried Wolverines. They seem to have a comparable rep to Red Wings and at the time (a little more than year ago?) Red Wings did not carry a black boot. Sorry, but company policy demands a black boot, so I bought Wolverine. It fit perfect in the toe, but was loose everywhere else, to the point I couldn't even lace them tight. Regardless of the loose fit (which I might dismiss as different companies size things differently), after a mere 5-6 months they were utterly falling apart.I was pleased to see Red Wings now offers a black boot, and FROM THE MOMENT I tried them on in the store I said "I'll never buy another boot again." It was beyond words how perfect these boots fit and feel. I've only had them for a couple weeks now, but I still have a love affair putting them on, still feel this is the last brand of boot I will ever buy.The only thing against Red Wings is price, and I think it deserves a mention of something I don't think people appreciate. If you take care of your boots, you should be able to resole them-- a service Red Wings offers for anywhere from $50-100. So your initial investment of ~$200 for one pair should translate into $300 for two pair and beyond if you just need a re-sole. It's possible you can really make them much more affordable depending on how you use them and maintain them.But for just comfort and fit... NOTHING comes close. June 5, 2014
