STYLE NO. 3343 : Blacksmith

Versatile and reliable, this style of shoe was originally used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. Today, the Blacksmith is built using premium Red Wing leathers and a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug outsole. The extra height of this 6-inch style keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, while the classic construction keeps feet comfortable even after long hours of work.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Versatile and reliable, this style of shoe was originally used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. The extra height of this 6-inch style, which would have protected feet and ankles from hot cinders at the forge, still keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, and its last-built construction keeps feet comfortable even after long hours of work.

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 110+ 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.

  • Many customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boot, runs big These boots are beautiful, BUT I will say that I am a natural 7.5, I was sized at my local Red Wing location and they gave me a 7.5. Which was entirely too big a caused great pain. Customer service was awesome and I was able to take them back for a 7 even after a week of wear and a good oiling. Although a 7 fits "better" I still feel that the boot is a bit big but not too big to cause pain or discomfort, a pair of light wool socks and insoles helps. BUT if all RW boots run so big and it is recommended to get a .5 size or even a full size below your regular shoe size RW should make a size 6 and 6.5. Its incredibly misleading to say you carry a size 7 & 7.5 when they are truly so much bigger. Although I like my boots, they will more than likely be the last pair I buy since there are other reputable high end boot companies that accommodate my size better. NOTE if you are a natural 7.5, the 7's are still a bit big and if you are a natural 7, shop elsewhere...RW boots will not fit you, none of them will. Beautiful boots, disappointed though that RW couldn't be MY go to boot due to their ridiculous sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots I have ever owned! I bought these as my first pair of Redwing boots ever. I had heard about them when I was in college but never looked into buying a pair until now. These are the best and most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I loved them so much I bought a pair of the classic moc boots and a pair of the classic chukkas too! Every pair of these boots are amazing. After a short break in period they fit like an absolute glove! I bought the size I normally wear and they fit perfectly. Others have said they run big, but I did not find that to be true. I did try them on in the store though before purchasing. They are worth every penny and I highly recommend them. The craftsmanship and fit are second to none!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BLacksmith work boot. After looking at several reviews on smililar style boots, I decided to go with the Redwing blacksmith style boots. I don't use them for work as I'm retired, but did want a nice casual looking boot to wear. I was a little hesitant on the cost of these boots, but I decided to take a chance. These boots were not in stock and had to be ordered at my local Redwing shoe store here in Corpus Christi, Texas. The Redwing folks were very helpful and friendly. These boots were a nice fit from the get go. And after wearing them for about a month, they feel really nice on my feet. And as others have reported, I did down size 1/2 size. You can wrong with Redwings on your feet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great made boot with not so great leather Boot fit perfect out of the box with very little break in needed! yipee! however after about a month the the uppers began to turn.. The uppers, backs, and sides began to basically turn to what looks like suede leather, and a poor one at that ( See pics). Not at all like the "smooth finish" that the description says about this leather. Called customer service and they said this leather does that ( gets a napp to it). Wish that would of been in the description cause they look poorly! They sent me some boot cream on the house which was nice, but ive had the boots now for about 6 months and the nap is so large that the cream gums up and makes it look worse. I expected far more for a 300.00 boot. Not as advertised." Smooth-Finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather." Not so much.. if you get this style boot get it in a different leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First but definitely not last pair of Red Wing This Blacksmith boots are amazing! They fit very well just make sure to get a full size to size and a half smaller than normal shoe size. Color is amazing and they are not as flashy as the Iron Ranger which makes them the perfect boots for in the office or out on the job site. This is exactly what I needed, I just graduated from college and had to transition to dressing for a professional environment and these boots have made it very easy. I have gotten so many compliments while wearing them and they go with jeans and khakis which is perfect for my job. Great buy. Enough said!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Pair I had never bought a "casual" pair of boots before especially taken a leap of faith since they cost much more than I wanted to spend, but after about 2 years of wearing these for work/play/casual in all types of weather every other day, if not everyday, the comfort alone has been more than worth it. I have abused these boots and still receive compliments in whatever the setting. I find myself walking just a bit slower while wearing these because you feel an extra sense of confidence as the heavy(quality) sole hits the wood floor, concrete, gravel, dirt, and lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from old Red Wing customer - new color Been wearing Red Wing boots for almost 50 years now...won't buy nothing else. This Blacksmith boot may be the best Redwing boot I've owned - easy break-in, confident, consistent fit and looks good. Never been much to worry about colors, but, this charcoal boot is now the favorite of my wife and daughters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT EVERYDAY BOOT I own work boots, I don't need ANOTHER pair....I wanted a boot I could wear EVERY day. THIS boot style won't be upstaged by a good set of jeans, but it will also not over power your look for casual days. The suggestion for a size SMALLER was 100% accurate......BUY ONE FULL SIZE SMALLER....you will feel they are too stiff and snug day one for a couple hours....then watch the transformation! Lace them tight initially...wear thicker comfortable socks....and the boot will conform to your foot and stride PERFECTLY . Trust the leather....trust the craftsmanship....trust the BRAND. I got the Rough and Tough CHARCOAL..............absolutely perfect look, no matter the situation.....especially when all you've owned is the usual black or browns. The lug pattern not extending toward the edge makes it appear to be a smooth sole......perfect again since I didn't want a "work boot" look. Nomdetail,is over looked on this simple boot....thatsbthe beauty of it! There are no cons to this boot.............with one small exception, the laces....order extras GET SOME!
