STYLE NO. 2962 : Blacksmith

Famous for its clean lines, simple construction and classic round toe styling, the 2962 features Bourbon Yuma leather, a Nitrile Cork outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Versatile and reliable, this style of shoe was originally used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. Today, the Blacksmith is built using premium Red Wing leathers and a durable Nitrile Cork sole. The extra height of this 6-inch style keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, while the classic construction keeps feet comfortable even after long hours of work.

Oil-Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather. Oil-Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather.

Oil-Tanned Leather

S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for oil-tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing’s 108+ year history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Wing Heritage boots are extremely durable. I have been wearing Red Wing Heritege boots long before they were called Heritage. I remember them simply being called Red Wings. My first pair were the 877. I do asphalt paving and go through one pair a season. This may seem like a short time for a pair of work boots but constant exposer to 200 plus degrees and repetitive soaking in diesel fuel to remove the asphault is incredibly hard on boots. My coworkers may go though as many as three pair of boots per season. This year I thought I would try the round toe instead of the moc toe. I ordered them on line and was a little disappointed to find that the leather arch support I'm used to in the moc is a synthetic foam type material in the round toe. I was also a little disappointed to find the leather seemed quite a bit thinner. I guess time will tell if these changes are for the better or worse. They do seem to weigh quite a bit less which may be an advantage if they are still durable. I tried to estimate how may pair I have purchased over the years and my best guess is 17. After seeing what people are selling vintage Red Wing for on line, I wish I would have saved instead of pitched them. I hope the differences in leather and arch support are just a difference in style and not across the whole product line. If these don't work out I can go back to the tried and true moc toe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Still loving these boots, and I want all of them now I received these as a Christmas gift either 1-2 years ago (bad a keeping track of time) These are absolutely the best boots I have ever owned and I'm gear quality nerd. If you are looking for the most comfortable highest quality boots look no further! (fyi the heritage line is built better and with better products than the regular line up, these are the real deal) They were dreadful breaking in (2 weeks) I wear these with merino wool socks every time. All day comfort. #redwingheritage #realdeal December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Enough character to last a lifetime. I bought these boots about four months ago as a companion to my 8114s. Everything about them is beautiful. They fit very well and become more comfortable the more I wear them. I wear them three or four times a week, generally all day, and they remain comfortable. My favorite thing about them is the leather used on this boot. It has an incredible amount of character and Mink Oil is very kind to it. The subtle variations in color across the boot combined with the beautiful natural scarring on the leather make this a stunning piece of footwear! I am thrilled about the way the leather is evolving with use, and I've only had them for four months. I expect I will be wearing these for a very long time. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best set of boots I have ever owned! For my birthday this year my girlfriend decided to treat me to a pair of red wing boots. After a visit to the london store and trying on a few different styles I settled on this pair. The staff advised me to size down which I was worried about but I'm so glad I listened to his advice. These boots fit like a dream and I can honestly say they are the comfiest set of any footwear I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. Could not recommend enough! November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy a Red Wing, Made in the USA Product Today! 65 years is to long to go before buying my first Red Wing product which lead to the purchase of these boots. Great looking boot for the office when snow/sleet /rain attack or a casual Friday. This is my second style of Red Wing boots and the lads in the store where very helpful discussing the investment and ordering in the last pair in the country in inventory. Wore them to the Minneapolis Club Tuesday night for a Rotary dinner and they were just at home there as anywhere else in town. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny. Had these for almost a year and wear them almost every day. They just keep getting better. First three weeks were difficult (due to break in), but after they were broken in they were perfect. Cannot recommend these enough and look forward to growing old with them! September 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most well made and comfortable boots, period. I never knew what well-fitting, comfortable, durable, and easy-to-care-for footwear was until I strapped these on. Originally, I worried that I purchased a size too small. Fortunately, I came across a video of a Redwing product rep discussing this model, stating that Rough and Tough leather is initially very stiff, but eventually gives the wearer a custom fit. That was certainly true in my case. I could not be happier. Follow the care instructions and you have boots for life. August 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can't wait to put them on in the morning. I bought these for work. I was tired of getting a new pair of work boots every other year. I knew I wanted something with a comfortable sole for walking on concrete all day, every day. These boots do not disappoint. The break in period, though much documented, seems to be greatly exaggerated. The discomfort was gone with a few long days, and now they just get better each day. I can't say enough about the quality, comfort, durability, and look of these boots. After two weeks I already bought a pair of 8126's for outside of work wear. Great boots, great company, great heritage. July 31, 2014
