Ive been wearing Wolverines for the last few years. I tried Red Wings when I couldnt find the Wolves that I wanted. I really didnt even break them in as they hurt too much. Everybodys feet are different. You need to wear what is comfortable on you.
Any body want a pair of gently used Red Wings??? Make me an offer.

I had a pair of wolverines that only lasted a year before i got my redwings. I opted for the $50 inserts for my redwings.Miller Maxstar 200 DX

I have been wearing Redwing (Pecos) steel toed boots for about 16 years.They have always worn well right out of the box. I wear this type of boot , because I will burn the strings out of a lace-up boot.

I looked for the ones I have but they no longer make them I guess (Red Wing WORX 5489-3) but they do still offer some with the guards..... even if not required I'd go for them as every time I have dropped something on my foot it is 99.9% more likely to hit the top of my foot vs the toe....plus the laces are protected and the guards keep sparks slag etc out of your bootGeorge W.

See i build rail cars right now im wearing Redwing 2240's first pair of reedwings i have ever owned usually i just bought el cheapo's from the wal-mart and my feet can't handle that anymore. So im just looking for the concensus i went against everything i was tought in the Marine Corp by just buying cheap boots,
it hard around this area to find boots with metatarsels.
please forgive any typos for abit as the keyboard on my laptop is being retarded,
anywho back to working on the drawings of this new bike Im gonna be starting this fall oh and helping wifey make sugar cookies lol
all the input on the boots is greatly appreciated

I've been wearing Redwing #4451 with the "Diamondback Soles" (go figure, I live in Arizona), wore them when I drove a mixer, walked around Phoenix International Raceway all day long, and wear them now. I opted for the insoles too (heat them in the oven, put them in, wear them). I oil mine weekly. 8" boot protects the ankles too. Definitely worth the $$$$$."Bonne journe'e mes amis"

I also favor the red wings i started wearing the die-hard work boot and and didn't like how fast they wore out so I listened to my father and spent the extra money on redwings and haven't looked back five years now.Fatty's Chassis'and Speed Parts LLC.
