STYLE NO. 3343 : Blacksmith

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. Today, the Blacksmith is built using premium Red Wing leathers and a durable Vibram® 430 Mini-lug outsole. The extra height of this 6-inch style keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, while the classic construction keeps feet comfortable even after long hours of work.

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.

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.

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 3343 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 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 Great boot. This is a great boot right out of the box. I wear them daily for 10 plus hours. I never have an urge to take them off due to discomfort. If you are in pain wearing a brand new pair you brought the incorrect size.

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 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Boot I love these boots. Took a few weeks to break in but man are they worth it. Very comfortable. I went to the RW store to try them on which I would recomend. 1\2 size smaller for me. Wear them daily! My only problem is the soles are on the hard side. What I mean by that is they clack on any hard floor surface. I'd give 4.7 stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide feet should only go down a half size Every recommendation I read said to go half to a full size smaller. I went a full size smaller. Which was a bit of a mistake. After 6 months if everyday wear I finally had to get the left boot stretched. To be fair this could have been avoided by going a half size smaller. I am a thirteen and just over a D width. These are great boots and I will happily buy another pair. Even with a rough break-in... It is worth it. I finally moved to insoles around 5 months in. Yes, these mold to your foot, but there is zero cushion. Once the insoles were in , they were tight again for a week or so. In the end my advice is buy these, but don't leave the store with a pair that squeeze your feet unbearably. Go for slightly snug and put insoles in once they loosen up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Casual Boot I purchased these to wear day-to-day as a more 'adult' alternative to sneakers. They are excellent as an all-purpose boot. The only reason I didn't give it top reviews on all accounts is, I haven't had them all that long. You can wear them with pretty much any non-dress pants. Its not a work boot, but they are rugged enough that you don't have to worry about messing them up. If you don't have an actual work boot, these can stand in for occasional physical work. They are far more comfortable than a pair of leather dress shoes and take a lot less time to break in. If you're used to wearing cross trainers or sneakers every day, these will take some adjustment. I've seen the blacksmith frequently described as "dressier" than the iron ranger. That's kind of true, but misleading to say that because, this is not a dressy boot. It will not function in anything beyond a 'smart casual' dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good boot My first pair of Redwings was the Iron Ranger. I had to go a full size smaller to make sure that my foot didn't rattle around with out large socks. The compromise was costly and I went back to find a better fit. With a narrow foot I found the blacksmith to fit well without sock-compensation both in the length and width. The clean profile is classic and break-in time was much shorter than with my iron ranger. I wear these daily (about 6 weeks so far) and can tell that I'll have a long relationship. When it's time for the resole I'll go with a more aggressive lug.
