STYLE NO. 3345 : Blacksmith

The Blacksmith is a boot beloved for its highly wearable, everyday versatility. A sleek, smooth toe leads the way, and solid brass eyelets and Flat Waxed laces are every bit as durable as they are dignified.

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.

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.

The 3345 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes
  • Should be sized up ½ if used with a footbed or orthotic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Red Wings ever Couldn't be happier. Bought them before our trip to NYC back in December, broke them in walking Little Italy, Chinatown and Manhattan. Plan to add a second pair in Brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome boots Purchased a pair of these a week ago. Took size 7. For comparison my Converse are always 7,5. Wearing it full shift. So far breaking in is going pretty well and not that painful at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect, but slippery on ice and snow. I absolutely love the Blacksmith boot. Although initially though, once broken-in it is incredibly comfortable. The only drawback is that the sole is to hard, which makes the boot dangerously slippery on ice and compressed snow. But, you look good while "bambi on ice"-ing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boots I’ve owned. Just visited your website to look into buying my second pair of these outstanding boots. Bought my first from Geoff at the excellent independent Union Clothing in Newcastle, UK, a year ago and they’re still going strong despite unreasonably regular wear. I live in Kenya so they don’t have an easy life but they fit like a glove and everything about them is still solid.

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.
