STYLE NO. 2990 : Engineer

Tall and rugged like engineers themselves, the 2990 pull-on boot features plain toe styling, premium Black Harness leather, a Nitrile Cork outsole, Goodyear welt construction and silver hardware.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Originally developed for engineers working on America’s railroads, the Engineer Collection’s pull-on styling and minimal stitching was designed to protect their feet from hot embers.

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.

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 2990 is built using the No. 522 Last:

  • Features a laceless design, requiring careful sizing

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Boot once broken in I understand this type of handmade boot has a break in period but it's unreasonable amount of time and effort when they could fix the problem areas for an easier break in. Mainly, the leather patch on the inside of buckle that runs against your outside calf. It will tear your skin within a block of walking because that leather is like sand paper. The ankle also has an area inside that the two leather pieces meet that causes friction when wearing. Both of these issues could be addressed with smooth leather patches. You cannot wear these without having the right pair of socks. Now I don't want a really thick sock to be the only pair I can use to mold my feet into these. I tried hiking socks, boot socks and a lot of them are not tall enough or leather will still cause friction to your skin. I recommend either a skiing sock that goes to the knee or what I'm doing using a sport sock (soccer or football) pulled all the way up and then over the top of boot. You cannot see that when wearing jeans etc. The sport sock is thinner and I feel my foot will mold better also the durability of the fabric makes it so the leather doesn't cause much friction though it. If they fixed the problems I mentioned I would give the boots a 5 out of 5 otherwise. But the first day I wore these with regular boot socks in 5 blocks I tore both ankles and both outter shins up even with a good boot sock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot I own two pairs, one brown and one black, work and motorcycle. Great on people with big calves. Best durable soles of all the boots I've owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic American Engineer Boot Was very pleased with the old world craftsmanship on the engineer model 2990. These are the way things used to be made, they were created by hand in the USA with quality materials. For me fit was a bit loose out of the box but once your foot conforms to sole you cannot find a more perfect fit. I Highly Suggest you order at least 1/2 size down, I usually take an 11 1/2 in athletic sneakers and size 11 in dress shoes, Size 10 1/2 was PERFECT in this engineer, I Highly Recommend this product out of any engineers that are Made In the USA... Thank You Red Wing for continuing the legacy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this boot I bought this boot as a motorcycle boot, but I find myself wearing them both on and off the bike. I ordered a half size smaller and they fit perfect. They wear extremely comfortable. I love the authentic look of the period from which they were created. I receive compliments almost every time I wear them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend these boots I was looking for the perfect riding boot, ( I own a 76' Honda cb750f ) and these are it. After a short break in period, I could wear them all day with no complaints. Comfortable and tough. And they look great too.
