Possibly my favorite pair of Red Wings, the burnishing on the leather is a nice touch. This particular leather scuffs fairly easily, but it just adds to the charm.

  • Black Featherstone = smooth leather that will require extra care + no speed laces
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gloria from Southern California on Saturday, June 30, 2018
    Absolutely beautiful boots. I ordered these in the black, which are marked as style #9014. According to the manufacturer's website, this type of leather (black featherstone leather) is a smooth finish that is used on Red Wing's dressier boots and requires a bit more care to maintain. They suggest boot cream rather than the boot oil that I have already purchased for my husband's boots. In fact, you can type in whichever RW style # you own and the website will give you specific recommendations for care. I know many people have their favorite product, but since I am new to this brand I thought I would follow RW's suggestions to keep these [expensive] boots looking nice.
    I was so happy to find RW at STPs great prices. Initially I was worried about purchasing seconds, but I have now bought quite a few pairs for different family members and have yet to be disappointed. As a woman, I really like the looks of the shoes and boots in the heritage line and think they will work out great for work where I am on my feet for 12-14 hours/day. I don't need a true workbook, but I do want something solidly constructed and built to last. Sadly, I have a high instep and a relatively wide foot which makes buying any footwear other than athletic shoes a giant hassle. Luckily, I wear a large enough size in women's shoes that I can switch to men's sizing! Of course normally, I wouldn't consider that lucky at all...
    Anyway, I typically wear a size 9.5 or 10 so I have narrowed down my choices in RW men's boots to 7.5 or 8 depending on the style. Apparently, different lasts are used for the various styles, so the fit will not be the same straight across the board. So far, of the styles I have tried, the Rovers seem to have the loosest fit (I actually take a size 7 in these + they don't feel as narrow as the others). The Beckman, IR and Blacksmith all have a similar fit (as expected since they are based on the same last) but these feel a bit tighter than the other two. I have learned a lot from reading all of the reviews here and on the RW website (plus the product information, naturally).
    In this style, a size 8 is okay width-wise, but a bit too long; 7.5 is still a bit longer than I would like, but I don't think I would be able to fit into a size 7 as they are quite narrow and also because of the construction of the tongue--it is a bit of a fight to get these on. At first, I found them almost intolerably tight across the foot at the level of the first eyelet, but there is plenty of room for toe wiggle and the ankle was no problem at all. I was only able to wear them for a couple of hours on the first day, before my feet started developing cramps, but every day I keep them on for a while longer and do a bit more and they are gradually loosening up. I am definitely not ready to wear them to work yet. I know they will get there, though--based on my experience with other boots/shoes over the years, I would say two or three weeks of wearing at home before a full day at work--and then they will last for years...
    These are a great deal (regular $350.00 so a savings of $200.00!) and I would not hesitate to purchase again or to recommend to others. In fact, I already have my eye on the Black Cherry. Some people may not like the lack of hooks for speed lacing, but it really only takes an extra minute or two so not a problem for me. I know there is some flaw that delegated these to the factory seconds pile, but I have no idea what it might be. The leather and stitching look perfect to me. If I had paid the regular price, I would have nothing to complain about.
  • Great product if willing to commit

    Evidently superior quality boot. However, price is justified rather than an overall deal. Requires some breaking in for comfort.
  • Smooth-Finished Leather

    I was worried that factory seconds with smooth finished leather might have cracks or scratches that cant be rubbed off but thankfully the pair I ordered had very minimal cosmetic flaws.
  • Nice boots!
    Reviewed by CorkedFive from Colorado on Monday, December 11, 2017
    I have some Redwing chukkas that fit perfect in size 8 ½, I ordered these in the same size and had to return and get a whole size lower at 7 ½. STP customer service is excellent! They fit great and are slowly breaking in after treating with Redwing leather conditioner and a couple weeks of wearing them just about every other day. The noticeable flaws out of the box I saw on this pair of seconds were a faded scuff like mark on the right toe, and a burn looking scuff with small tuft of thread just above the left heel. I don’t feel the boot integrity is diminished in any way, and for the savings, these minor flaws are perfectly acceptable and I am completely satisfied with the purchase.
  • Cigar Beckmans
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jake R from Colorado on Monday, December 4, 2017
    Bought a pair of Black Cherry's in 8's, while typical brannock size is an 8.5. The black cherry's were beautiful, but due to having to do a return for sizing, I went ahead and chose the cigars. I got the cigars in 7.5, and the fit was much better. The 8's had a decent amount of heel slip, even with large socks, and fully laced. The cigars are also fantastic, but as luck would have it, the defect on this pair that made them seconds was a large gash on the uppers near the ankle of the left boot. As such, I will be returning them. I should note that the black cherry's were pretty much perfect. I think the only defect I could see was a slight scuff near the welt on the left boot. Being seconds, it is luck of the draw. It does look like the cigars are either in less supply or higher demand. I will probably try again if they stock the cigars in 7.5 again.

About Red Wing Shoes

With a heritage dating back to 1905, Red Wing Shoes are legendary as an American success story. One Red Wing shoe style was standard GI-issue for WWI soldiers, and after emerging successfully from the Great Depression and the Second World War, the Red Wing brand name became synonymous with reliable, comfortable leather shoes and boots. Norman Rockwell, the artist famous for Americana artwork, even created a series of drawings for Red Wing Shoes. In the 1970s, Red Wing Shoes spread to Canada, Mexico, South America and Europe, offering its popular line of leather work boots and shoes. Red Wing has broadened its scope to offer everything from casual leather lace-up shoes and loafers to rugged work boots to thong sandals. Today, Red Wing runs three production facilities employing hundreds of expert craftsmen, but still makes each pair of oxfords, loafers, work boots and athletic shoes by hand.
