Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for hard to fit feet I've had difficulty finding appropriately sized and fitting footwear my entire life. Having a long and very wide foot, my shoe size varies based upon the type and style of footwear. The Red Wing vendor, HANKS CLOTHING (Binghamton, NY) measured my foot and recommended a pair of Red Wing 953's. They were absolutely perfect! I've been wearing the same pair for fourteen years and have had the soles replaced once. Only allow a Red Wing vendor to replace the soles! February 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I don't remember how long I've worn Red Wing 953 boots, but probably close to forty years! The last time I purchased Red Wing 953 boots was January 2009. I was afraid the 953 model boot might be discontinued, so I purchased two pair. I stashed one pair in the closet and started wearing the other at that time. I tend to use a product until it is absolutely worn out. That first pair from January 2009 was worn until January 2016 and have just started breaking in the second pair. I am a farmer working outdoors, but close to retirement in 2009. I partially retired in 2013, so this second pair may last me until I am no longer able to work. However, if I do need another, it will only be a Red Wing. I also have two pair of Red Wing shoes that I wear when not working. January 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The only boot i will ever wear again!!!! I have been wearing these boots for almost two years and am astonished at the quality and comfort they have presented every time i put them on my feet. I work 12 hr shifts on concrete factory floors with farm and other outdoor work in between and cant find anything else i like as much as these boots. only oiling the leather about once per month these boots have absolutely paid for themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfort on the go! I've been wearing this pair since March this year non stop working 2 part time jobs 10 to 12 hrs. combined a day.Have worn other brands that if I'm lucky would last a year.I have tried a few styles of Red Wing boots & this pair works great for me having constantly going in & outside working maintenance and putting up with the summer weather.They breath pretty good being non insulated so I don't have sweaty feet when I take them off.I did have to get a pair of padded insoles for my flat feet & it makes wearing these boots better.Also helps support my arthritic ankle that it doesn't act up when I have them on & constantly on the go,Nice & lightweight.The tread on the sole is mainly flat so you wouldn't track dirt.Breaking in took little time added some mink oil to help soften them up.Been holding up pretty good thru the wear & tear I've put them thru so far.Going to get a second pair for back up down the road.Would be nice if there was a insulated style for the winter time.Might get the 4410 model!.Glad they're made in the US.Thanks Red Wing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Comfortable! I bought these boots to replace an old pair of Red Wing boots of the same style that we too far gone for new soles. These boots are super comfortable and I've been wearing them for 8-10hrs a day as an electrician for the past 5 years and still working on the original soles! If I have to work outside during the winter here in Chicago, I don't wears these boots at all. The boots have no liner so your boot gets cold and the soles aren't that great for walking on snow or ice. You can't go wrong with these boots as part of your work boot selection! May 31, 2015
