STYLE NO. 8138 : Classic Moc

Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 8138 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Briar Oil Slick leather, white Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

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 110+ 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.

  • Was created in the 1950s and is Red Wing’s most iconic last
  • Includes extra room in the forefoot and instep for easy entry
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes
  • Most customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK, now I'm a believer... I used to be skeptical about Red Wing boots; the level of devotion that people have to this company seemed a bit excessive. Nevertheless, the 875s look so good that I finally decided to get a pair. I am glad that I did. Yes, they are super-stiff out-of-the-box, but that’s because they're built like brick sh--houses. I will own these boots for the rest of my life (I'm 41). The Oro-Legacy is beautiful, and will only get better over time. I’ve only worn them for 4 days so far, and they are already starting to break in. I echo what others have said here- make sure you get the right size. If they're too big, they slip, and that doesn't work well with the stiffness of the leather. I don't have any inserts in them and I feel like they're already beginning to form to my feet. There's something magical about a pair of boots that you know will be with you through the progression of life's chapters, especially in the disposable world in which we currently live. I'm a convert. Thanks, Red Wing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely buy new This is my second pair of Red swing moc toe boots using this last. I first bought the 1907 and now I’m reviewing the 8883. When I’d bought the 1907’s I got them pre owned looking for a value. Thought I love them boots I didn’t realize what I was missing until I got the 8883’s brand new. As you break in red wings they form to your foot and the leather develops it’s own individual patina. Having these boots essentially become unique to you is a cool process. I’ll never like my 1907’s the way I do my 8883’s because they were broken in by someone else. I highly recommend buying these boots brand new.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the 9075s. Just broke them in. I purchased the 9075 to for casual wear and daily use at work. I wanted a boot which is still made in its country of origin and would be both durable and stylish. After reading the reviews stating they take a while to break in I decided to apply the red wing boot oil immediately after purchase in order to soften the leather. Red Wing also recommends applying their protectant spray after using the boot oil so I did this as well. I bought a 9 1/2 which is about one size down. I wear a 10 1/2 -11 in shoes. Initial fit of the boots were very snug on the width of the toe area as well as top of toes. I have narrow feet so this was surprising. The leather in the boot has a very rich and smooth feel despite being quite rigid. I wore the boots around my house for a few days. One decision I regret is wearing 2 pairs of athletic socks in the boots for an hour or two while sitting down. After doing this the the boots were still a little snug but there was a definite stretch to the overall fit. I would recommend letting the boot mold to your foot natually because when they do break in they really stretch quickly. The first day I wore the boots out of the house I went to work for and removed them after 2 hours. I was not uncomfortable but could feel that I was getting to that point. The next day I wore the boots for 4 hours and made the mistake of not using the top boot lace eyelet so my heal moved quite a bit and developed blisters. I started wearing the boots daily after this and they literally broke in and stretched within 2 or 3 days which leaves them quite roomy. I was dissappointed the boots stretched as much as they did and think it may have had something to do with my decision to wear an extra pair off socks for an hour or two. The boots insole is still breaking in but are comfortable. I feel rested after wearing them while teaching on a concrete floor all day. The leather feels more supple and is very comfortable. Initially I was looking at the Iron Ranger or a similar Canadian made boot and think this is the best boot for comfort while standing for long hours and still maintaining an appealing look. I think they will last a long time compared to other shoes and boots I have tried at work only to replace them a year later. So it is more of an investment. I plan on reviewing after wearing them for a longer period.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality material great craftsmanship I bought my red wing 1907 in january 2019 , been wearing it ever since . Took me two weeks to break them in . Now they are the most comfortable boot i ever own . That brings me back to our local red wing shoes store in kuala lumpur where i live and purchase another boot , the red wing 8883 . I won't be wearing any other brand after this .

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is terrible I’m a union carpenter and bought these boots 6-7 months ago. I’ve owned many pairs of red wings these are by far have warn out the quickest. They were not sized correctly they are too big was never warned they run big. Soles have completely warn out flat. Went to the store said they couldn’t do anything for me. Contacted customer service and all they can do for me is offer me a resole. The heal is rolling over the edge of the boot clearly something is up with them. I purchased these one because they are one of the few pairs still made in the USA and not filled with the waterproofing material. For the price of these boots they should definitely have lasted longer and red wing should stand behind their product with new boots. They say one year warranty well mine are less then a year old. Maybe I just got a faulty pair and sized wrong but then they should stand behind their stores and product and offer a new pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great and is built even better These are the first pair of Red Wings I bought but definitely not the last. I went with the Briar Oil Slick mainly because I have more stuff in my closet that match them then any of the others. I received a compliment the first day I took them out for a stroll. “Those are very nice boots, how much you pay?” a man said to me. Now as for the fit, I followed blog and website suggestions and bought them a half size smaller. I wish I had gone in to a Red Wing store before I made my purchase. My heel slips up and down a bit when I wear regular socks but it’s no big deal and a really easy fix. When I wear my boot socks or anything thicker than an athletic sock, the slippage is ALMOST gone. I also put in a thin insole and now it fits a lot better. Now, I haven’t quite broken them in yet and I know that once that happens these things are supposed to fit like a glove with no slip and everything so, that’s what I’m hoping for. If you’re looking for a good all around, well built & versatile boot, I’d put my money towards any of the Red Wing moc toes. If you have an opportunity to get fitted in a Red Wing store, then do that. If not, buy a half size down and pray they fit and if not, make them fit :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best footwear i've ever purchased I am nearing the end of my breaking in period and I already love these boots. I went to a store that sells them to try them on. I'm glad I got sized for this boot because I ended up getting a 10 1/2 when I normally wear a 12. So comfy and so beautiful.
