STYLE NO. 8196 : Classic Round

Famous for its clean lines, simple construction and classic round toe styling, the 8196 features Briar Oil Slick leather, white Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Originally developed for farmers, Red Wing introduced the 6-Inch Round Toe work boot in 1919, making it one of our oldest boots. The round toe eliminates the need for extra stitching and the Traction Tred outsole was added in the 1950s for better mud-shedding grip. Durable and well-designed, the 9111 combines the comfort of an oxford with the strength of a work boot in a style that dates back almost a century.

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 from Proper Job I’ve been wearing these boots for approximately six months now and I’m not sure I have ever owned a better pair of shoes. Wear in time was minimal. I do a lot of walking in my job and this undoubtedly helped soften the leather. The leather has already aged beautifully, a process I’m sure will continue. I went down half a size on the advice of the chap in the shop, and this was a good call.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Toughest Break In So these are my 4th pair of Red Wings and by far the most difficult break in to date. I am nearly 6 weeks in and these things have nearly beaten me. The heal shape seems to be slightly different to any other Red Wings so it causes some pretty bad blisters. On a positive note they look great, just don't expect to wear them for more than an hour a day for a while

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I`ve ever owned Bought the 8196 about 6 months ago and love them.Needed a few days to break them in,but it`s worth it.Looking to buy a second pair just because I like these so much!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but... I just got mine last night. I wore it for about 2 hours in the house trying to break it in. I also have a Beckman in 7.5 D size. Same size as this shoe. It feels a little bit on the tight side as far as width is concerned. Should I return it or try to break it in a little bit more? I don't want to be stuck with an expensive pair of shoes that I can't wear. Very nice leather though.
