After our successful introduction of the Red Wing Blacksmith collection occurred in 2014, we have now added style no.2955 to our collection. The Black Spitfire leather, tanned at Red Wing Shoe Company’s tannery in Minnesota, is a heavily waxed Roughout leather. The combination of wax and the reversed suede Roughout leather guarantees a beautiful worn look on the boot over time. The 2955 is equipped with a Vibram 430 outsole, providing optimal grip and cushion in slippery conditions, as well as classic bronze eyelets and speed hooks.
The Blacksmith can truly be considered the classic American work shoe. In the early 1900s, when Red Wing Shoe Company first began to service rural America, this style of shoe became vastly popular across the country. Versatile and reliable, it was used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. It was the all-purpose shoe for many
years in many industries.
