Red Wing Heritage

Red Wing Heritage Logo
Red Wing Shoes® was built on America’s great promise; if one worked hard enough, one could achieve anything. A big believer in this promise, Charles Beckman, a merchant in Red Wing, Minnesota started on a mission. From his Main Street shoe store, he saw firsthand the need for durable, comfortable boots. In 1905 he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company®. Word spread quickly about the quality and comfort built into every pair and the company prospered.
Today, a third generation of employees, located just down the road from the original factory, continue to build boots in this tradition by using the same craftsmanship and attention to detail. Triple-stitched seams, sturdy welt construction and rich leathers are signature elements. Over a century of Red Wing Heritage® goes into every boot.

Boots look beautiful, fresh smell of leather out of the box. I can definitely see the draw. HOWEVER... I ordered the new version with the Vibram sole and instead, Zappos sent me one with the old sole and what they believed to be a return because it didn’t come with the original box either (repackaged in a generic cardboard box). They apologized and immediately refunded me and sent out a new pair with a return label for the old one and knocked off a decent chunk of the price as an apology so customer service was good. I’m disappointed but look forward to receiving what I hope to be the correct item in a couple days and will update my review then. First impressions: Very stuff shoe as expected. I wear a size 9 in sneakers and a size 8.5 in dress shoes. Size 7 for some reason or the other is the size that I needed in this shoe upon trying them out at the Red Wing store. I strongly urge everyone to go get sized at a Red Wing retailer if possible before purchasing.

So is this the best mens Boot ever? No Of course not. There are all sorts of custom made to order boots, much high price that may well be better. But if you look at price point, style, materials, look, fit, Country of origin, feature set, durability ect...... I honestly feel that this boot is 1. GOOD ENOUGH 2. offers the best value Just a great looking , hard wearing, last a lifetime sort of boot.

I bought these in the Pecan Boundary leather- gorgeous color. Overall I cannot say enough good things about these boots. The leather is thick and supple and does take some breaking in. The soles are very comfortable- especially for the heel height- and the stacked leather of the heels makes a wonderful difference in comfort. I can honestly say that these are the go-to boots I've been looking for for YEARS and complete many outfits. A subtle retro flair, flattering and comfortable heel height- and excellent quality that I'm planning on enjoying for many years.

After doing some research prior to purchasing, I decided on going 1/2 size smaller than my boyfriend’s normal size 12 boot. By having this information ahead of time, it saved us from having to send them back for an exchange. The boots are so well made, with the thickest hide I’ve ever seen in a boot. Will definitely take some time to break in but that is to be expected with such a high quality boot.

Wear a size 7 and the 6.5 fits perfectly. They run about a 1/2 size large like most leather boots. The stitching and leather were as expected for a boot in this price range. Would buy again.

I've wanted this boot for a while and after finally getting it I'm not disappointed. The fit is a full size larger so size down by one. The inside is bare-bones though so plan on getting some insoles. I just got some red wing mink oil too so I plan on servicing the boots soon. The look is what is the selling point. These boots look awesome and once they are properly broken in then they will be just about perfect!

Really enjoy the quality and comfort. I normally wear 11 and that is the size that fit me best. I read a lot of reviews that said try a half size smaller, and I couldn’t get them on my feet. 11’s are feeling great.

These boots are the best! The size is true, they are padded and comfortable and it barely feels like it has a heel. They do require a bit of breaking in, but I can tell by the quality that theses boots will last me a long time. For reference, I’ve always bought Frye boots, and I have to say, these might just be better! Worth the money in my opinion.

Really like the look and the feel of the shoes but Redwing needs to take a hard look at the quality. These boots don't provide much support and there is a bit of extra space in them, but nothing that can't be remedied with insoles and thicker socks. However, the bigger issue is that the eyelets for the laces have stretched out considerably and I can't tie the boots any tighter. This is really a flaw in the design of the boot. I wear these maybe 2-3 times per month and have owned the boots for less than a year. At this pace they will be trash within another year. I did notice in the Q&A that some models may have metal eyelets. If this is true than Zappos and Redwing should be replacing the boots that some people received with the defective eyelets.

I have worn Redwing 1178's for exactly 30 years now. And don't plan to stop! First pair I bought in 1988. Lots of pairs since. I wear a 9E2 everytime and wear them 5-6 days a week for about 3 years per pair. Fabulous boot. However, I have been wanting to try some lace up boots for a while. The Heritage 1907's have had my attention for sometime I just hadn't been able to pull the trigger until now. I have studied countless reviews on the model and style. Because so many others have recommended a size down I even ordered 2 pairs...my normal 9E2 and an 8.5E2. Sticking with the 9E2's was best fit for me. The quality, workmanship and craftsmanship make these Heritage 1907's HANDS DOWN the finest boot I have ever worn or even had my hands on. Nothing else comes close. The leather is incredible and smells like that first nice ball glove you got when you were younger. I could not be more pleased with my purchase!!!

I first tried these on with a light cotton sock. These boots didn't strangle my foot, heel height is comfortable, arch support is adequate and somewhat little to no struggle putting them on. You really do need to break them in before long time wear. I was surprised how quickly I did break them in (first day: on and off for 30min to 1hr intervals, second day: 10 hours constant wear). The boots feel and look sturdy, I'm worried about what other's are saying about the heel wearing out, but we'll see.

This leather is what dreams are made of! You can’t tell in pictures, but when it bends/ creases, it breaks to a gorgeous copper color, giving rich depth to the leather. (If you don’t care for that “antique” look, the iron ranger comes in an Amber Harness leather that is a homogeneous brown that doesn’t change color as it bends.) Love Love Love this boot, but with they hadn’t “feminined” the toe shape. It crowds my 4th, 5th, and “6th” toe bone. Maybe not so much that I couldn’t make it work, but haven’t decided if I want to bother.

I’m a 9.5, but ordered a 10 because my toes and forefoot are a tad wide (and I hate cramming my feet), and this toe shape is narrow and a bit pointy. Wish it wasn’t, because it does crowd the toes :( This is a very interesting style. Unique for sure. I like it a lot, but my preferences tend towards quirky. Would note that it looks larger than it is, but I just don’t give a funion about that bs. Big difference between this and other “nice” boots in quality- REAL stacked heel (not leather wrapped to look stacked, but peels away when you scuff it on a cement stairway, barstool, etc.), thick leather, vibram sole.

I’m a 9.5. Ordered a 9.5. Length was accurate. I have a narrow heel but wide-ish forefoot. Not usually wide enough to necessitate buying wide shoes as long as the design isn’t tapered/pointy in the toe box. These felt nicely snug around my mid foot, but a little too snug around my 4th, 5th, and “6th” toe bone. Not terrible, but not quite enough space to be comfortable. Leather feels rich a supple, but the amber harness brown wasn’t as interesting as the copper rough and tough offered in the Silversmith style (it’s hard to tell in pictures, but that leather shows lovely orangey-copper creases as the leather bends, creases and breaks in- making it just look richer and better over time). However it might be a better choice if you want the boot to look “new” or more polished.

Love these boots, was skeptical to spend the $$ but glad I did. Red wing shoes live up to their reputation and you can’t beat made in the USA.

It is a great looking shoe. The upper leather is holding up well after a year of constant use. My concern is the heels wore out so quickly.

For those of you who are thinking about ordering any Redwing Heritage boots I would highly recommend going to a Redwing store to get a proper fit. However despite what that computerized machine that they make you stand in and pushy sales associates I would try on different sizes to make sure you don't buy a pair of boots that are too big or too small. I had originally bought the Copper Rough and Tough Heritage Moc Toe boots and between a size 10 and 9.5 had problems with the 10's being too big and the 9.5s feeling too tight across the top of the foot. The sales associate swore up and down that the machine does not lie and said the 10s would eventually form to my foot however there was a lot of room in my heel area. I decided to try on the Iron Rangers in the Copper Rough and Tough in a 9.5. This boot felt better across the top of my foot, but still had too much room in the toe area. So I went down to a size 9 and it fit perfect. Being able to order through Zappos with fast shipping and great return service I was able to try on in my own home and make that decision for myself without the hassle of pushy sales associate who did not want to keep running back and getting different pairs of boots for me to try on! But if you do go to a store or order here from Zappos I would consider trying on different sizes. Most of their boots do run a full or half size smaller from your normal shoe size. I will tell you that you want be disappointed in the quality and construction of these boots. The first day I wore them I had several compliments. I would recommend getting some type of leather conditioner to help with the break in of the boots. Redwing has care kits for all of their types of boots. I purchased one with a leather cleaner, mink oil conditioner and protectant spray. Just after a week of wearing them they are starting to break in nicely. Looking forward to getting many years of wear out of these great looking boots.

My husband normally wears size 12, so we ordered 11D and it was too narrow for him. We had to return it for 10.5 EE. He does not usually wear wide shoes, but in these, he had to. Also, he has never had to size down so much before.
