The Blacksmith is a boot beloved for its highly wearable, everyday versatility. A sleek, smooth toe leads the way, and solid brass eyelets and Flat Waxed laces are every bit as durable as they are dignified.
The Blacksmith is descended from a boot that was worn in farm fields and workshops by day and shined-up to go out at night. The 6-inch boot originally protected feet and ankles from hot cinders at the forge, and today it locks out dirt in the summer and snow in the winter. True to its roots, the Blacksmith blends construction and materials that create both rugged durability and handsome styling. Premium Red Wing Leather, a three-quarter Goodyear welt, and Puritan triple stitch sit on a Vibram® 430 Mini-lug outsole that provides trustworthy all-season traction.
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage footwear should fit comfortably tight on the foot, with enough room to freely wiggle toes. As you wear the footwear, the full grain leather upper, insole, and cork midsole will mold to your feet, creating an increasingly personalized fit over time. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.
Oil-tanned leather is made with minimal finishing materials, which creates a distinctive natural look and feel. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless Red Wing styles over the years. It is water, stain, and perspiration resistant. Actively maintaining leather is the most effective way to ensure integrity and longevity. We recommend the RED WING All Natural Boot Oil for proper conditioning to keep leather healthy and extend the life of footwear.
