I was so happy with the experience that I purchased again from STP soon right after receiving these boots. However, at checkout, m... Read More
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Manuel from Texas on Tuesday, May 29, 2018I have been eyeing these boots for quite some time so when I saw them on here in my size I was excited to get them, the boots are visually perfect they look great once I put them on I realized they had been stitched improperly leaving a piece of leather that made them very uncomfortable to wear. Will be returning them

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Disappointed from Nyc on Monday, April 9, 2018Got this boot with a hole punched in the leather. Looks like a non-sellable model to me instead of s factory second.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mr.Walker from East Coast on Friday, April 6, 2018Seconds were in good shape. Only problem with condition I could spot was some dirt, which could be cleaned, I guess.
Bigger problem was the new structureless toe flattened just trying the boots on for a few minutes and pressed down on my big toes. Portended greater discomfort in future, so have to return.
Another issue is the weight, which is at least as heavy as the brand's Iron Ranger. Seems odd, given less structure and fewer pieces of leather. Then again the roughout olive Mojave leather is very thick.
Other than the above points, the boots are beautiful, the color is great, build quality is high and I regret the fact their comfort was compromised for me by the design.
As a note, break in will probably be fast, since the leather's pliable. Would be great if they had a toe box of some sort. Red Wing could surely make the lower profile toe with a matching toe box that doesn't collapse. I'm also guessing the sole material is heavier than it has to be.
If those points aren't an issue, I recommend the Merchant Boot without qualification.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Red Wing Lover from Chicago on Thursday, April 5, 2018Extremely comfortable and good looking boot from day one. Cannot find any fault in them that would cause them to be factory seconds. They have a great nap and don't seem to crease much at all due to the rough out leather. The only negative I can think of is that they do not have speed hooks, so it takes a while to lace them up and take them off. If you don't mind that, I highly recommend these boots.
