STYLE NO. 8830 : 8-inch Classic Moc

Modeled after the 877, the 8830 features classic Copper Rough & Tough leather, Goodyear welt construction, a Traction Tred outsole and triple stitched quality.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

In 1952, we introduced a boot that has come to be synonymous with Red Wing ever since. The 8-inch Style No. 877 was made with russet colored leather, tanned using the sap of sequoia bark, yielding a rich color that was very close to the coat of an Irish Setter hunting dog. The 877 had a crescent-stitched “moc toe” and sported a wedge sole made from a white crepe rubber that promised to be quiet underfoot for sportsmen in the woods. This sole had been used on shoes before but the No. 877 was the first to use it on a tall hunting boot. In addition to its benefits for the stalking hunter, its comfort also found favor on the job site and soon the 877 was seen in the factories and on the scaffolds of a growing America. The No. 877 has changed little from its origins, remaining essentially the same boot that was ceremonially presented to President Eisenhower in 1960. Today it is the iconic Red Wing boot.

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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great boot! Bad luck. This boot is made with exceptional quality and craftsmanship, once the break in period was over they really do fit like a glove. Unfortunately though I think I got a bad pair. After wearing them for 5 days a week for three weeks they have began to make my big toe numb on my right foot only and I can't wear them. I've tried to wear them loose and tight and anywhere between and I still can't wear them. These are great boots other than that, and I'm sure it's an uncommon issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality These are my second pair. First was the lighter moc 8". Had them for about a year before purchasing these. I'm a union electrician, so these where my everyday boot. Loved them. My personal experience, not too much breaking in needed. They mold to the foot fairly quick. I do work on all types of terrain. The only thing I can say is the sole completely wore on the toes (red wings will resole). Other than that with some care the leather last and last. No seperation on the stitching. Most likely my boot for the remainder of my career... as long as it's continued to be made in the good old USA.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from High price, low quality, worse warranty Stitching below laces pulled apart within 8 months. Sole was completely gone within a year. I'm a bench TIG welder so i dont even walk around that much. Granted, before the soles wore out these thing were the most comfortable things I've ever had on my feet. I was extremely disappointed that a 315 dollar pair of boots could not survive a year of sitting a bench. I will never buy red wings again. I'll go with a cheaper boot and replace them once a year for less the half the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really comfortable and durable I recently purchased a pair and I love them. They are beautiful in color and the red wing team was so helpful in helping me with size. I wear a larger foot and they don't have half sizes but they fit perfect. It's not as heavy as I expected and way more comfortable than I thought it would be

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best boots you can buy I was always a skeptic about spending close to 300 dollars on a pair of boots but once I tried cheaper made in China varieties, I soon discovered that a quality boot such as every pair that red wing makes, you begin to understand the value in paying a higher price. My 877's are the most comfortable pair of footwear I own and getting over the idea of wearing in the summer with shorts, I'd wear them all year round because nothing matches the comfort. I would have to say I'm obsessed with Red Wings. Nothing compares to their quality and craftsmanship. If I could I would buy every model they have in every leather offering. I would suggest sizing down as everyone knows by 1/2 size and wearing a quality wool sock such as smartwool. Despite what others say about the sole wearing out, I would happily resole mine every 2 years because they are simply worth it that much to me. I'm tempted to buy a second pair just to wear outside of work. Don't be put off by the prices of these boots, they are an investment and taking care of them will give you many years of enjoyment. There is no better boot available.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yes & no I was expecting a lot more from these boots I mean they're good looking & comfortable but 3 to 4 months of using them they look so old kinda disappointed ( scratched leather & cracked sole )

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Width is great. Slightly big. Definitely go 1/2 size smaller. Very comfortable and very durable and well made. I wear boots year round and it has been a struggle to find a boot that lasts longer than a few to several months for me. I'm an active man from Wisconsin and I'm outdoors all year round. I needed boots that were light, durable, comfortable, and waterproof. Never had a pair wedges before but always liked the moc toe design. Finally got a pair for Christmas last year and have been wearing them ever since. Almost a year later and they look and feel like I've only had them for a month. Best boots I've ever had. Yes, they're a bit expensive but you can't cheap out on footwear. You have to take care of your feet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sole coming apart - 3 years of very mild use. I've owned these boots for the past 3 years and used to wear them a couple times a month. I am disappointed in the quality. The boot is very rugged, but the sole on one boot started to pop as I walk, as if the middle of the sole is separating from the boot. The sole is still in good shape, so this isn't a issue with wear. I purchased these boots with the hopes of wearing them for the next 20 years, ( I have another pair of Wings that I bought in 1998 and they are still as good as new) - but don't I don't wear these anymore because the popping is a drag.
