STYLE NO. 3345 : Blacksmith

The 3345 Blacksmith in Black Prairie leather combines Red Wing Heritage archival design with leather innovation. Our oil tanned Black Prairie leather showcases a brown base and black finish that will patina beautifully with time. Antique-finished brass eyelets and hooks, a three-quarter Goodyear welt, Vibram® 430 Mini-lug outsole, and Puritan triple stitch construction create a modern boot with deep historical inspiration.

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.

STYLE NO. 3345 : Blacksmith

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 3345 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Many 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
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

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 3 out of 5 by from Good materials and fit. Okay Craftsmanship. Bad store service. I originally bought these boots a month ago. They came with puckering on the toe box on one of my boots, but I payed it no mind since it was very minimal. All of a sudden after 3 weeks of wear the same boot with the puckering started having an issue with the metal shank. It was making a loud creaking noise when I would bend the sole. I took my boots to the store I bought these boots from. The salesperson helping me was trying to make it seem like it was just the leather squeaking and that I was overreacting. Basically implying that I was being nit picky. After finally getting him to exchange my boots, he mentioned this would be the last time he would be able to exchange my boots which I find unfair because I have no idea if my replacement pair would arise with the same or a new defect in the future. I inspected my new boots before I left the store. Everything seemed find except for some minor aesthetic issues such as extra perforations on the soles. The outer edges of the soles could've also used some more sanding, but I am sure it will smoothen itself out with some wear. A day passed and I was extremely pleased with my replacement pair. Surprisingly I felt no discomfort in my first wear this time around. However, when I got home I wanted to admire the boot. As I looked deeper into the craftsmanship I found a fold on the heal seat on my left boot. I am not sure if this will cause issues with the boot's water resistance, hopefully not. I have been considering wether or not I want to have these exchanged because to me this unacceptable from a company that boasts about having top tier craftsmanship, but sells a pair with a decent sized fold at the heel that could potentially compromise the structure or the water resistance of my boot. Not sure what to do anymore since the store I bought these from won't replace my boots. I guess all I can do is pray that I did not waste my money. Hopefully a representative from Red Wing will read this review and get in contact with to at least let me know if I should be concerned with the fold issue on the heel seat of my boot. All issues aside, I love the materials used on these boots. I also enjoy the fit of these boots. I am a size 9.5 on the bannock device and I found the size 8.5 Blacksmith fit me perfectly.

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 5 out of 5 by from Best boots I've ever owned! I've had some other boots in the past but nothing compares to these. I get nothing but compliments on them! The break in took about two weeks, I wore socks with extra padding on them and it made it much easier on my feet. I wear these boots every day and they are for sure my preferred shoe of choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect boot! This is my first pair of Redwings, and if the company will stick to this quality, they have a customer for life! With small maintenance (always stored with shoe trees, regular oiling) after half a year of use, they look like new, the sole is not used (the heel doesn't have a chamfer, like you would find with cheap rubber after a few walks) the shoe is comfortable. Only downside, they are a bit heavy, but that's the cost of quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, comfortable dress / light work boot I bought these boots Nov. 2017 and wear them to my office job daily. The leather uppers too about 6 months to get fully "broken in" and the leather/cork sole broke in after about a month of regular use. They still look great & feel like new. They're very durable and extremely well made. They're perfect for me, since I have foot problems and can't wear soft-soled shoes. I work in a professional office and these fit in along side normal dress shoes, only with the support of being a 6-inch boot. Sometimes I actually forget I'm wearing them since they're light and incredibly comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Boot I purchased the Blacksmith in Charcoal R&T Leather. The fit is excellent and there was virtually No break in for mine. I also own a steel toe work boot ( 2406 Red Wing Super Sole) which I have had for 4 years which are super comfortable, however they took about a month to break in. I have had 2 foot surgeries and must wear medical shoe implants which were no problem with either boot. The round toe on the Blacksmith boot dropped my boot size from 9.5 US in the 2406 to 8.5US, therefore I would recommend trying them on instead of ordering online,unless you are sure of your size. The quality of my boots is first rate. Made in Minnesota, USA!! Red Wing, MN!
