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 This product has great features that include premium leather and triple stitch construction. After purchasing my first pair of boots (Iron Ranger Style No 8084) over a year ago, there was no turning back. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is what really tells the story about this product. I now own the classic Blacksmith Style No 3343 in Copper Rough & Tough Leather and they are truly amazing. I have recommended this product to family and friends for years and will continue to do so. Note: Cleaning products are as good as it gets as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great boot, great color. These boots age fantastically but do have a tendency to darken if you used RedWings all natural leather cleaner. That being said they darken quite beautifully. When it comes to sizing, its quite unfortunate they dont have any wider sizes. If I know I'm going to be wearing these for a while, I'll wear them around the house so the leather begins to stretch around my feet. The length is another thing. I wear an 8.5 in sneakers and even at a size 7 these boots are still too long. If they had smaller wider boots, this would be a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great boots! Not my first Red Wing boots, but my first Blacksmiths. I was hesitant due to the price, however I am glad I bought them! I bought them at a real store, that had a real person to help me with fit. I went with a half size below my normal size and it is a perfect fit. The break in that I expected to be terrible was actually not bad at all, I suspect people who have difficulty breaking in this type of boot may be used to wearing tennis shoes. It was a great to have an expert to assist me at the shoe store. I am so happy with these boots that I just had them order me another pair in a color they didn't have in stock. Thanks to the Red Wing store in Hot Springs Ar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go with the size the sales rep says! These boots are unbelievable. I was hesitant to go with such a snug size which the sales rep recommended, but I am glad I did. I would say it took about six months to really break-in to be very comfortable, but I only wear them about 2-3 days/week. I’ve had them for over two years now, and it’s like they were built just for my feet, with they way they have conformed. Could not be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If the Iron Ranger and the Merchant had a baby! I purchased this pair of Blacksmith in R&T Copper (3343) after owning two pairs of Iron Rangers (8111 and 8084) I loved the look of the R&T Copper color, but didn't think I needed a 3rd pair of Rangers so I purchased the Blacksmith in R&T Copper instead. The beauty of the 3343 is that it really is the perfect middle between the Iron Ranger and the Merchant. In reality, you get all the good parts of each boot in one pair of boots (sans the Waxed Laces, but that is an easy change if desired.) You get the Vibram 430 Mini-lug sole of the IR. You get the Waxed Laces of the Merchant. You get the Speed Hooks up top of the IR. You get the Non-Cap Toe of the Merchant. You get the Shape/Profile of the IR. Since these are on the "8" last, I sized one size down from my sneaker size (12D) and purchased these in 11D. Upon the first wear, I could tell that these would be less of a break-in than the IR's. They are comfortable and look great! I currently own 4 pair of Red Wing Boots and just ordered a pair of 1907's this morning! I look forward to enjoying all of these boots for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb boot, thrilled to have them, worth every penny! Best pair of boots I've owned, and they're just getting broken in. My second favorite boot would be another pair of Red Wing boots that i bought 20 years ago. These are made with top grade materials and made to last. A bonus is that they're incredibly comfortable. Love the smell of real leather

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great craftsmanship and best leather, amazing comfort. I bought this shoe and have been wearing them for the last three months. This is my first red wing and I was looking forward to a painful break-in period. Surprisingly, I had very little trouble. They took lots of hits while walking and hiking but just needs cleaning with cloth and generous buffing, and voila, they shine like new. I also noticed the development of very fine characteristic patina/aging. Recently, I walked continuously for two days over 12-14 hours every day and boots felt very comfortable and didn't feel sweaty or smelly. I am wearing these boots in the office today and I realized that they are so versatile, and fits so nicely as well as.
