STYLE NO. 2268 : Engineer

The 2268 is an 11-Inch un-lined pull-on engineer boot, built with premium Black Chrome leather, Neoprene Cord outsole, silver hardware and sturdy Goodyear welt construction.

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.

Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather. Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather.

Smooth-Finished Leather

Smooth-finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather. Only the most premium, top-quality hides are used to craft smooth-finished leathers. The result is a beautiful, classic-looking leather used to build more elegant styles, such as the Red Wing Heritage Beckman Collection. The polished look and feel of the smooth-finished leather requires more specialized care and attention to keep it maintained.

STYLE NO. 2268 : Engineer

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 2268 is built using the No. 50 Last:

  • Was designed for boots that were worn by workers who climbed transmission lines and needed a steel toe to protect their feet
  • This last offers more volume in the toe area and is a safety-toe last

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect second pair this was my second pair of red wing boots, and let me tell ya. these boots are well worth the price tag. two months in and they feel like a dream on my feet. I recomend buying 1 to 1/2 size smaller than normal, as i usually wear a size 7.5 or 8 and size 7 red wings fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable I bought these boots in Germany. They needed some breaking in, as you would expect with such boots. Once broken in however, they can only be described as awesome. Don't waste your time looking at others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally A Classic Is Available In The USA The 2268 has been coveted by many since its creation over 30 years ago. For some strange licensing issues, the 2268 was only available in Asia and Europe for the past 15 years. I am happy to say that it is finally available here! If you can find a pair, the 2268 that is marked with the code PT83 is collector's item.
