STYLE NO. 8138 : Classic Moc

Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 8138 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Briar Oil Slick leather, white Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Nothing says, “Red Wing”, like a moc toe boot with a white polyurethane outsole. It’s a style we started making in the 1950s for sportsmen but it worked equally well on farms and in factories due to that Traction Tred sole with its minimal tread that sheds mud and provides the underfoot comfort the work day required. The crescent-shaped stitching on the toe was inspired by the construction of the shoes, or “moccasins” originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toe boots have since become a legend.

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.

  • Was created in the 1950s and is Red Wing’s most iconic last
  • Includes extra room in the forefoot and instep for easy entry
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes
  • Fits ½ size large

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plain discomfort. The boots fit ok, no problem and as expected for the size that I usually use. Correct size and shape etc'. The issue is with the seams on the inside that run downward to attach the upper to the sole around the instep. It is so thick and not helped by a lack of cover, almost unfinished, I'd say. It digs into both sides of the foot on both boots. I don't have wide feet, so that aint the issue. It is not through lack of break in or incorrect fit, as the rest of the boots are soft and supple already after wear through one month or so, day in and out. The insoles supplied, although nicely made etc' only serve to make the matter worse. The soles show signs of heavy wear. After a month? Pathetic. Water readily reaches the inner of the boot walking in anything more than damp grass (fancy welt and leather or not). So to sum up, probably the worst pair of boots I've had (very pretty though, people think). Uncomfortable, total waste of £279. I have had work boots for a fraction of the price that have caused no problem. To be honest, the price I'll take on the chin but the alleged brand's trumpet and fanfare I won't. In plain English, rubbish. No, I haven't taken them back to the shop for explanations and blah, as I bought them online. Redwing, feel free to comment please and redeem yourselves. I don't particularly want anyone else's quick fixes or contradictions to what I have just said. Sadly, It's fact. Ian.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot replaced all my other boots ! What can I say about these boots, they are just great, worried about spending €299.00 on a pair of boots, but, took a bit of breaking in but 2 months on they are almost perfect, the leather is so supple, comfortable all day, day after day, look very cool and the leather is now showing some signs of patina.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8804 / 8131 UK based, have had pairs of the 8804's for 20-25 years: never them thrown away, in the hope that, like a cryogenics fan, some day in the UK I will be able to bring them back to life (i.e. re sole them). Have watched brand's UK resurgence amongst a younger generation with amusement and veneration. Great boots. Great job. But SORT OUT THE SUPER SOLE SITUATION!! Gave worn out pair of 8804's to charity shop (Sad day. Good deed). Have four pairs left, plus one pair 8131's (having thrown out a pair or two). Older they look more snug the fit. Red Wing, please help . . .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots After having gone through 2 pairs of finding right fit I have the ones. I must say these boots do fit amazing. When the boots fit just right you'll know, these are great I love wearing them and look forward to modding them to my feet. Thank you redwing

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, boot if you know what you're getting... Runs about a size big. Yes, they take a little time to break-in, and yes, the soles don't last very long especially if they are worn frequently and on hard / abrasive surfaces. Just make sure to buy saddle soap and mink/boot oil and a good brush to keep the boots looking good!!! Overall, my main complaint is the limited availability of WIDE sizing throughout the Heritage line! (For example, wides exist for the 8138s but not the 1907s.) C'mon!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Material and Craftmanship I've purchased many of the competitor's brands and these boots get better with age. I find that I should have purchased the boot about a half size lower than my sneaker size. The leather will stretch out in time. You won't find this high quality made over seas. Although I live in Canada, it's important to me to buy North American whenever possible. I love the weathered look style and the durability as I ride a vintage motorcycle - cool styling! Foot protection is key therefore the raw leather is integral. My rubber soles are in need of replacement as I have worn these boots nearly every day for 2-years. I'll be purchasing a different style next time just because I like to diversify and my wife says I have a shoe fetish...no I don't...well may be a little.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to Get 'em! About 3 weeks after getting the Blacksmith model, I had to go ahead and get the 8138 moc boot this past weekend! Like my other RW pair, I did have to go down a 1/2 size (and almost went down a full size on these, but my big toe was just touching the end). Really like the darker color - as two ladies in the store convinced me this was the ticket. Break-in is going well, and I've lightly oiled them to speed up the process. Construction, leather, sole, stitching are outstanding - you can see the pride of workmanship. I really have no doubt that both new Red Wing purchases will last the rest of my life with proper care - and maybe a resole or two.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great gift I wear a U.K. 10 in Grenson, Loake & U.K. 11 in converse and Nike. My wife got me a U.K. 9.5 from the store as a gift which felt great when I tried them on at home, but having read a lot of blogs before purchasing I decided to take them to the store in London to double check they were a correct fit. Glad I did they measured my arch and recommended a 9 in this style as the toe box has a lot of room. 9 months later they fit like gloves, but beware the break in period is gruesome!! I wipe them regularly with damp cloth keeping a cedar shoe tree inside to dry them, and every other month use boot oil on them. Plan to use mink oil paste once a year and let them sit for a week in a heavy layer. I'm so happy I'm going to buy another pair and use them on rotation. Don't buy online always go to a RW store for good advice
