New Blacksmith Styles – Added Traction

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

The Blacksmith can truly be considered the classic American work shoe. In the early 1900s, when Red Wing Shoe Company first began to service rural America, this style of shoe became vastly popular across the country. Versatile and reliable, it was used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town. It was the all-purpose shoe for many
years in many industries.

With the positive momentum around the sole used on Blacksmith no. 2955 and Iron Ranger no. 8119, we updated the complete Blacksmith range featuring the 430 Mini Lug outsole. Reintroducing as the Blacksmith no. 3340, 3341, 3342, and 3343. The Mini Lug sole has been designed to showcase a smooth and refined side profile of the Blacksmith while adding traction and durability. In addition to the sole update, all Blacksmith styles now come with the classic bronze eyelets and speed hooks.

  1. I tried a pair of the Ranger boots on today but I think I like the Blacksmith boots better. my problem is, as you have probably heard from other people, is that I wear a B width in a shoe. we had to put the insoles in the Rangers to make them fit. But I guess there is nothing you can do. Most of your customers probably have wider feet.

  2. I really like that you have added the charcoal rough and tough to the already great lineup. Now I’ll have to order a pair.

  3. Do your boot style shoes come in wider widths? I am a 6 1/2 eeee or 7 ee or eee depending on the shoe.
