STYLE NO. 2953 : Rover

The 2953 6-inch Rover features our Hawthorne Muleskinner leather with Goodyear welt and Puritan triple stitch construction atop a Coffee Cushion Crepe Wedge sole.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

The Rover was a name given to machine operators in early twentieth-century cotton mills and is also the name of our 6-inch round toe work boot. Made with premium leather from our tannery, and our Cushion Crepe shock-absorbing sole, this boot is built for comfort. The sole was first introduced on our work boots in 1952 and was found on our venerable No. 766 Cush-N-Crepe All Around Work Shoe up until the 1980s.

Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery. Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery.

Roughout Leather

Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.

STYLE NO. 2953 : Rover

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first heritage boots! This was my first pair of heritage boots & my first pair of RedWings. These have been comfortable for me since day 1. No hotspots or blisters. Fits comfortably snug. The sole is super quiet. I’m loving these boots and looking forward to wearing them for years to come! I’m a size 9 in running shoes, I bought a size 8 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy I found these These boots are one of my most precious possessions. I was skeptical at first because the break in period was painful on my ankles where the top of the boot wraps around. But that was quickly remedied by wrapping the area with a bandana underneath my socks. After 2 weeks, they were comfortable and after a month, I never wanted to take them off because the boots had molded to my feet. I'm sad that I can't wear them right now in the summer, but once the weather cools, I'll wear these every single day. I have no complaints about them and I'm usually good at finding flaws. They're comfortable to walk in for long periods and my steps are ninja soft because of the crepe sole. And since it's a Goodyear welt, I can get some resoled and wear them for the rest of my life (with proper maintenance and care of course). Thank you Red Wing for making these!! The oil-tanned leather really does resist scuffs. The boots do run small. I usually go with 8.5 or 9 in sneakers and I got these boots in size 8. Very satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rest Assured... VERY happy with this purchase. I've owned, loved and very seriously worn a pair of Iron Rangers in black harness leather for just over a year now, and was very keen on getting another pair of Red Wings. After a brief but intense breaking in period with these Rovers, I see no reason to expect any less of them. Random observations: Of course, I guess most folks know to size down up to one full size with Red Wing Heritage boots in this last. That being said, these seem to fit ever so slightly larger than my Iron Rangers (Which I purposely sized pretty snug), mainly in length but a tiny bit in width too. Both are within what I consider the margin of error however, and both are perfectly comfortable. Secondly, the Rover sole is definitely more comfortable to walk on, however even after a brief period of ownership, it is clear they are not going to be the most durable soles. I'm fine with this, but maybe it's something to consider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shopped, Visited Store, and Purchased After shopping for a pair of Red Wings for 8 years on line, I finally visited the Red Wings store in San Bernardino, CA. I tried on the Iron Rangers 8111 and although I enjoyed them, my wife wasn't the biggest fan of the heel (sad). After a few days of online shopping, I went back to the store to try on the Rover in Copper Rough and Tough. These babies are beautiful and after a few more days of consideration, we made the purchase. As you know, the cost is big but they are righteous. The build quality is beyond anything I've ever owned and I've worn them a few hours a day for the last 3 weeks with a bit of pain because the leather in new (expected). They are at a point now where all the leather around my ankles and foot is now softer and pliable. I've put a little bit of the Red Wings Leather Cream once a week to help with the break-in. The foot bed is still firm and hopeful this breaks in over the next few weeks and months. The Rover is a handsome boot and have already received a few nice compliments which I didn't expect I would get because they are boots. Using them for everyday kicks and office work. They are so nice, I've purchased a Red Wing belt, this is also the real deal. In a few years, if I continue to have a good experience, I'll be able to purchase the Iron Rangers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First pair of Red Wings, 1 month review. Absolutely love the boots, but was a little disappointed with the fitting process at my local RW store. They didn't have the Rover in stock and didn't seem too interested in getting me measured up in store. I measured a 9 and thats what they wanted to order for me. Knowing they run big, I probably should have left and looked for a store that had stock. I had to ask about sizing down just from me reading reviews on the site. I ended up with an 8.5, they were almost hard to get into in the store so I figured I was good. The first 4-5 days are a little rough, a week you are getting better and by a month they are perfect. After a full month I'm getting nervous that I needed to go down a full size rather then just a half. I still love these boots and recommend them, just definitely try them on in store in 1/2 and full size down. I wear these for office/warehouse work and will definitely be getting another pair in a different color. The COPPER ROUGH & TOUGH LEATHER are more brown in the pictures online. In person they have more red to them. I used the RW leather conditioner and it darkened up the brown and to a better color IMO. (pictures shown with conditioner used)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Boot So I bought these boots yesterday. I have narrow feet, and they are perfect for me. I did go into my local red wings store and I got fitted. Normally I’m a 9.5 in basically everything, and the 9.5s felt good. But the 9s felt better, so I was sized down half a size. I recommend you get fitted. Umm, the boots are absolutely beautiful. Like seriously perfect. I love them. My feet are definitely hurting during the break in, but totally worth it. I hope

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Untapped Market My friends own these and they're beautiful. Upon my inspection and via their testimonies, it's a fact that the Red Wing standard of quality and comfort is here in the Rover. I own a pair of mocs but I want these so badly; please, please, please make these in size 15!
