Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique black leather, outstanding quality I picked up a pair of the black prairie Blacksmiths last month and am making good progress breaking these in. The black overdyed “black prairie” leather looks great, and I’m looking forward to see how it patinas. Comparing these to my other boots (Thursday captains, Chippewa 6” Service), these definitely established themselves as the toughest, most carefully constructed pair. A note on sizing, I went a full size down from my sneaker size (10 in Vans, 10.5 in Nikes) to find the right fit. This is a half smaller than I wear in Thursdays, but your results may vary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Worth the $$ and get inserts!! This is my 7th pair of wings and have to say that this is my new favorite out of the box. Sizing is true if you own round toes and size down if you wear Mocs. The key is using a pair of foot beds as the leather insole is brutal as I am on my feet 8-9 hrs a day. A 2 week break in period could be expected and use RW leather cream for proper molding. I am looking forward to the patina of this Black Prairie Leather as the brown undertones will only add to this versatile boot's appeal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color me impressed This is one exceptional boot! My first pair of Red Wing Heritage boots.The style is spot on for a work boot. This example has pristine craftsmanship: stitching, leather, welt, sole are all in perfect order. If all Red Wing products are this level hat's off, job well done. The photos are after one day of break-in which this leather makes the break-in period very easy compared to other leathers. I'd compare this to an unlined suede for amount of break-in needed. The Spitfire leather is something out of this world too, I've never seen anything like it. I've added some detailed pictures to help show the leather since there isn't much info on this. I'm very excited to see how these shoes patina over time. Key Features: -Mini-lug sole. Great traction and weather protection -Spitfire leather. This is not simply a waxed suede. This is a full grain leather turned inside out (see pictures, you can see the full grain on the interior of the boot which provides a glove leather like interior while being unlined) break-in brownie points. The exterior has then been heavily waxed to lay the nap down and provide a dull shine (think waxed cotton jacket finish, pictures do not do it justice) with the durability of rough-out. This leather feels like it can take a beating. -Thick leather interior toe liner. I believe all the Blacksmith models have this? It's a very nice subtle detail which provides structure to the toe box and supple durability over a cloth liner. Nice to see this, something that could have easily been left out. Question to Red Wing Heritage: The website does not provide specific care instructions for Spitfire leather. the video link is for full grain, the suggested products for this model are boot cream, and other model numbers which use this leather suggest mink oil. How should Spitfire leather be cared for?? Regular maintenance, and long term trying to restore the original finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My story Here is my story: After having bought these shoes in late 2014, I was more than happy to finally call a couple of Red Wing shoes my own. They were comfortable, looked better every single day (these shoes gotta be a bit dirty/used) and felt good. After one winter however, a few metal pieces, probably nails, worked themselves through the inner sole and made walking rather painful. I contacted the store where I bought the shoes and explained my problem. Even though the warranty had expired and I had no hope to get reimbursed, they offered me a replacement with no extra cost, since this seemed to be a rare problem of production. In fact, they even asked if the size was good enough or if I wanted a slightly bigger shoe this time..The service was fantastic. New shoes - excellent shoes. Way to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That's I was looking for ! Hello from France, I was looking for old style US-made workers boots, and that's exactly what I got ! It feels big - for French 42.5, US8.5 is the good size The pros: After three days of use (thanks to the guy I bought the shoes from) they're much more comfortable than in the shop. One week later I can walk 3 hours without any suffering, and it can even be a pleasant experience. I know a lot about alpine climbing shoes. The leather used here is made to last. Stitching is good as well. It's waterproof, and it seems to be water-resistant, so I can simply wash it. If you avoid to wash the shoes, the leather becomes patinated and really nice. It looks like a real shoe, and I loved to watch all the movies about the craftsmanship in the Red Wing factory. Yes, I like to see the faces of the people who make products - people and not only robots. The cons: After three weeks I'm not sure that the heels are made to last. I'll change for some more resistant Vibrams. This shoes are actually not suitable for too cold weather. I'll buy additional inner soles for negative (celsius) temperatures. In short I'm very happy with my new boots, thank you guys !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Stunning!! These shoes are honestly the best I have ever worn. Their appearance is sublime and the feel of the leather is in a class of it's own.... I look forward to many, many miles of travelling together....
