STYLE NO. 8881 : Classic Moc

Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 8881 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Olive Mohave 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.

Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery. Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery.

Roughout Leather

Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.

    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 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

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic boots Supreme boots! I have to size down one full size but other people may only need to size down half a size, I would recommend you try on in the shop first but either way you will need to size down between a half and a full size as all redwing heritage run big bro! This my nineteenth pair of redwing heritage so I am a bit of a conisseur :). A great tip to reduce any break in period significantly is to get some wooden shoe stretchers/trees they don't have to be expensive ones just a cheap £5 pair. Keep these in your boots at all times when not wearing them and trust me you will have hardly any break in period at all! Plus it keeps your boots in shape and absorbs all the moisture from sweat. Done this with all my redwings and hasn't failed me yet :).
