by Mike65 You can't beat this boot I bought my first pair of 963s 13 years ago and fell in love with them. I worked on concrete surfaces and was up and down ladders all day long. With other boots I'd be dying to get them off at the end of the day and soak my feet, but with these my feet felt great. I wear them every day, all day. I work in them, I hike in them, I camp, fish and hunt in them. The 963s are my everything boots. I've had them resoled with a Vibram sole which wears like iron. I've kept them cleaned and oiled regularly and the leather is in amazing condition considering what they've been put through; the Ozark back country can be very harsh. I took my oldest son who just turned 20 down to the Red Wing store last week to buy him his first pair; he went with the 606. I decided to splurge and bought myself a new pair of 963s. My 13 year old pair is still in great shape and I didn't need to replace them, I just wanted to get another pair in case the model gets discontinued... don't do it Red Wing. I plan on rotating them daily and look forward to another decade plus with these two pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cecilethridge I was told that they discountinued this model I went to buy another pair and was told that they done make this model... so sad .. and when I looked at the other boots in the store it appears that most are made in china now ..looks like red wings doesn't want my business after being a loyal customer for 20 years ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riyach Hands Down the Best Red Wing Boot Being a guy that has worn Red Wings for the past 20 years and owning a number of pairs, I decided to invest in a pair of 963s. Believe me when I say that you get what you pay for. Although I work as an administrator I work in conditions where there is mud, gravel, dirt and concrete. These boots have work well on all of these surfaces. I am not on my feet 8+hours a day like most Red Wing wearers, but when I find myself heading into situations where I know I am going to be walking of standing all day these are my boots of choice. What I like about these boots is that they were comfy from the first hour of wearing them. The leather is great and the look and feel lets you know you have premium material. At first it was a stiff but after wearing them a bit they softened up nicely. There was no weird hot spots on my foot and I didn't get any blisters. The inside was cushioned and supportive and my feet felt secured. After about 3 months I decided the replace the insole with a Red Wing Revolution insole and it just fit right in. This isn't necessary, but I really like the way this insole feels with all my Red Wing boots. I have gone on vacation and these were the only footwear that I have taken. They are easy to clean, and a little bit of boot oil will cover up the minor scrapes, I like the conditioner. Then again, these are Red Wings, they just don't look right unless they have a little scuff, dirt, or grease on them. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by John22 My third pair ! The Red Wing 963 is a great, COMFORTABLE, long lasting boot. These things have a good firm tread on the sole, plus a wonderful insole. It absorbs shock and the discomfort of walking on rock and gravel. You will go home afterwork, a lot less tired, with these boots.I had a pair of Cabelas hunting boots… nice and light, yes but it was like walking [ over 3/4'' rock ] in bedroom slippers. Aching feet gives you a bad attitude. The Mercedes like firmness of the Red Wings is a good feeling.A little on the costly side, going in, but if you figure cost per day, [ plus the comfort ] they are very low cost !Thank You, Red Wing April 15, 2014
