STYLE NO. 875 : Classic Moc

Practically identical to the iconic 877, the 875 is simply a shorter iteration. It’s six inches of premium Red Wing Oro Legacy leather combined with Goodyear welt construction, a Traction Tred rubber outsole and triple stitched quality.


We began making moc-toe boots in the 1950s for sportsmen. Farm and factory workers quickly took to the boots for their all-day comfort and lasting durability. The crescent-shaped toe stitching is inspired by the construction of moccasins originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toes have since become a legend.

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 108+ year history.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make sure you try them on - this is a great shoe, but the fit can be completely off! My regular size is 11 (and this goes for 99,9% of my shoes) and starting with that, I went smaller... and smaller... and smaller, until I landed at... 8.5. At that size, the toes still wiggle as they should, there's enough space for them, but naturally the boots feel narrow until you've broken them in. And that breaking in period will be a time you'll remember well, but maybe not fondly :) But once you're done, these are the most comfortable shoes you've ever worn. The leather itself is almost orange initially, but it'll fade down to more leatherly brown with use. With good socks, these are good for any weather, but if it's 5 degrees or colder, I'm happier in my Ice Cutters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boot I received these as a gift after talking about them for years....a great surprise. It took me a couple of weeks or wear to make them truly comfortable but these are some of the most comfortable boots I have worn. Having a wide foot makes finding comfortable shoes a bit tough. Can't comment on wear.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible fit - defective or really poor design Length of fit is perfect and even a bit snug however lacing can't be pulled tight enough. Able to tighten at first, even though looked goofy laced with eyelets on top of each other. It grew unbearably loose in short time. Eyelets pulled together completely and still can't get snug but toes right to end of boot. Heel constantly slipping up and can't tighten any further around ankles. Absolutely horrible fit. Worn work boots for decades and never one so poorly fitting. Never ever again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality as always These are my 4th pair of moc toe boots and my favourite pair. They’re a nice change from the traditional leathers of my 875’s and 8138’s. The execution of these is first class and I’m very pleased with the extra leather laces that came with these. Size wise I took a UK 8.5 and they fit perfectly. I can’t wait to see how these look in a few months time! Great job Red Wing

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiny little problem. Bought these boots online and I have just abit of a slight problem here. I'm experiencing discomfort due to the weird flexing of my left boot caused by the asymmetrical throat line. Other than that it's a perfect pair of boots!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plain discomfort. The boots fit ok, no problem and as expected for the size that I usually use. Correct size and shape etc'. The issue is with the seams on the inside that run downward to attach the upper to the sole around the instep. It is so thick and not helped by a lack of cover, almost unfinished, I'd say. It digs into both sides of the foot on both boots. I don't have wide feet, so that aint the issue. It is not through lack of break in or incorrect fit, as the rest of the boots are soft and supple already after wear through one month or so, day in and out. The insoles supplied, although nicely made etc' only serve to make the matter worse. The soles show signs of heavy wear. After a month? Pathetic. Water readily reaches the inner of the boot walking in anything more than damp grass (fancy welt and leather or not). So to sum up, probably the worst pair of boots I've had (very pretty though, people think). Uncomfortable, total waste of £279. I have had work boots for a fraction of the price that have caused no problem. To be honest, the price I'll take on the chin but the alleged brand's trumpet and fanfare I won't. In plain English, rubbish. No, I haven't taken them back to the shop for explanations and blah, as I bought them online. Redwing, feel free to comment please and redeem yourselves. I don't particularly want anyone else's quick fixes or contradictions to what I have just said. Sadly, It's fact. Ian.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot replaced all my other boots ! What can I say about these boots, they are just great, worried about spending €299.00 on a pair of boots, but, took a bit of breaking in but 2 months on they are almost perfect, the leather is so supple, comfortable all day, day after day, look very cool and the leather is now showing some signs of patina.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from only boot to trust on high steel! Been wearing these boots for over 45 years. As a young bolt punk, these shoes gave me a bit of confidence to climb out on a sunshade 340 feet above Manhattan sidewalks. Left the irownworker's trade when my knee gave out. Stuck with these shoes until I retired 4 years ago.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best boot period I have to say wether on a plane or under the truck, this boot has you covered. After the break in period was over I found myself coming home from work and wearing them till bed time. I used to change shoes or take off my work shoes immediately after walking in my door. Just love em. Worn for four years now and recrafted after 3. I have to say the tread wears fast but the soft sole is part of what I love. No fatigue from hours of working on concrete. Also, the leather darkens a lot. You must keep these things oiled and that is just part of the deal. You be nice to them and you will have great boots for as long as you care to wear them. High cost up front but it pays off fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8804 / 8131 UK based, have had pairs of the 8804's for 20-25 years: never them thrown away, in the hope that, like a cryogenics fan, some day in the UK I will be able to bring them back to life (i.e. re sole them). Have watched brand's UK resurgence amongst a younger generation with amusement and veneration. Great boots. Great job. But SORT OUT THE SUPER SOLE SITUATION!! Gave worn out pair of 8804's to charity shop (Sad day. Good deed). Have four pairs left, plus one pair 8131's (having thrown out a pair or two). Older they look more snug the fit. Red Wing, please help . . .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes time to break in, but once you do, you instantly want to buy another pair. For first time Red Wing people; it takes time to break them in and some are easier than others. But once you break them in, you will become a convert. Buy a bit snug as over time they will stretch and conform to your foot perfectly. They truely are great shoes, and take care of them because they will last forever. It's also more conducive to how we should naturally walk, barefoot, you feet will become stronger and less injury prone. Stick with it, you won't regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality I've owned four pair of 875s (still have them in various stages of dilapidation) and here is my secret for break-in: on the day your going to begin wearing them, fill each boot to the top with boiling-hot water, let it soak into the leather, when it has cooled enough to insert your foot, do so, and lace them up tight. Wear them all day without removing them till the end. This will greatly expedite the boot conforming to your foot, trust me. Some may say, "Not good for the leather, you'll ruin them, etc, etc, just ignore all that! These are costly, but I find I don't mind paying for a quality-made product. Sized perhaps a tad long (for me) I do buy my normal shoe size as I wear these in all outdoor work conditions and I don't like tight shoes. I've been a construction worker since the late 70s, started wearing the 875 late 90s, wish I'd discovered them sooner. Recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best boot ever! Ok, so I got these 2 months ago and yes they do run big. Went one full size down. I don't want to sound weird but these boots have replaced every bit of foot wear I have and I am a long time cowboy boot guy. Redwing proves their exceptionality with this bit of Americana. A beautiful, durable boot that makes others look down right shoddy. Like the other reviewers I haven't taken these guys off. The break in is a reminder of the folks from the old days and how tough they were. Will you be that tough? I doubt it but you will look it in your Redwings. Absolutely love em and will have them for life. Thanks Redwing artists for your enduring passion and design. Can't wait to get the 877s - I know - overkill, but with this kind of craftsmanship how can you resist?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect I bought my first pair of redwings after owning a few pairs of Irish setters and I didn't think the quality could get any better. I will have these boots for life.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Boots You'll Ever Own I've owned my 875's for 2 years now and have worn them almost every day since I bought them. I have had them resoled once, but have to say, these are the most comfortable shoes you will ever own! Don't let the price scare you, these boots are an investment for your feet, they aren't just a pair of boots! Thank you Redwing for making such incredible products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love these boots Great boot. About a 2 month break in period for them to fit perfect. I wear them EVERY day and I put a lot of miles on these. I have had for a year now and I am taking them in to be re-soled. After the break in period, these boots are very comfortable (esp when leather gets soft). I only treated them 2-3 times with mink oil and it seemed to do the trick. I will wear these until they fall apart.. then I'll get another pair.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great gift I wear a U.K. 10 in Grenson, Loake & U.K. 11 in converse and Nike. My wife got me a U.K. 9.5 from the store as a gift which felt great when I tried them on at home, but having read a lot of blogs before purchasing I decided to take them to the store in London to double check they were a correct fit. Glad I did they measured my arch and recommended a 9 in this style as the toe box has a lot of room. 9 months later they fit like gloves, but beware the break in period is gruesome!! I wipe them regularly with damp cloth keeping a cedar shoe tree inside to dry them, and every other month use boot oil on them. Plan to use mink oil paste once a year and let them sit for a week in a heavy layer. I'm so happy I'm going to buy another pair and use them on rotation. Don't buy online always go to a RW store for good advice
