STYLE NO. 2955 : Blacksmith

Famous for its clean lines, simple construction and classic round toe styling, the 2955 features Black Spitfire leather, a Vibram 430 Mini-lug outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.

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.

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 Great all around boot! If your looking for something that looks really good casually, functions , and just plain fits great on your foot you've found it. I am very happy as you can tell with my purchase, The spitfire leather on these boots is unique and appealing. It is soft, quick to break in and just has a very nice look to it and looks good with just about any clothing style. They are super comfortable and the black leather on the spitfire is more of a matte finish rather then shiny. Interesting to note that the leather has almost a sandy like surface to it when viewed up close, this is a unique characteristic of this leather style. So to sum up, just a great boot by a great company. Can't go wrong getting yourself a pair of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots This is my second pair of Red Wing boots, my first being the Classic Chukkas (no. 3141). I've only had these a few days, but they're already much more comfortable than my other pair due to the extra room in the toe box. I bought these a full size down from what I usually wear, and they're a great fit. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST BOOTS Love these boots. I use them daily (few exceptions here and there) and they look as gorgeous as they did when I purchased them 3 years ago. Mink oil them here and there, good as new. Look great roughed up too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 years worn everyday. Still looking new baby! The best shoe I own next to my iron rangers. Worth every penny. Pick up some mink oil to keep them looking new like I have! I use the oil about once a week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Shoes That Work As a Engineer working at a renowed five star porperty i needed a boot that looked sharp and worked hard. From shoveling snow in the morning, replacing a toilet at noon, to going out in the evening this boot gets the job done. Well done Red Wing. p.s. let the shoe break in than the magic happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Investment These boots are an awesome addition to my collection. I've wanted something in black to have and this boot was a great choice. The break it time was a bit rough, but I definitely love the boots!

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!
