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 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 Fantastic! Second pair of Redwing's (first were Chukkas). These do not disappoint, appear extremely well made, slightly stiff feeling initially, but already feeling more comfortable. Staff in store recommended half size down, unlike Chukkas which were sized the same as other shoes. Also advised to wear thick socks to begin with which really seems to be helping. Should last a lifetime and looking forward to many years wearing. Would definitely recommend these boots. Sales staff were very helpful in the London UK store and advised on best cleaning product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour At first I purchased the 3340, and even though it was a beautiful boot, I quickly exchanged it for the black spitfire. I was in love instantaneously, the colour and the leather finish on this boot make it my favourite boot, even better than the amber IR. I can wear it with anything, even in business attire. The very slight pain of the break-in period is a great beginning to what will undoubtedly be a long lasting relationship. Thank you for making this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous boot Another gorgeous Red Wing Heritage boot. The Black Spitfire is a rough-out which means the rough side is turned outwards. These are not as dressy as something like the black Beckham and are also a little harder to care for because you can't just slap polish down and buff them back. Still a beautiful boot if you want something black but with a rough finish when you get close. Note that this is a minilug design. I've look at this and the Roughneck side by side and the differences are that the Roughneck uses full-on Vibram sole whereas the minilug will wear more quickly--less sole--but produces a slimmer silhouette. Seems to me the BlackSmith is really a Roughneck with a slimmer sole.

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....
