The Moc Toe, the Iron Ranger, the Beckman. Easily identified and extremely popular in the United States, these staples of the Red Wing Heritage line often overshadow the 6" Round Toe. Fortunately, the shadow cast by those signature shoes didn't stop me from snagging a pair.
This particular variation of the Classic Round Toe is made with a Copper Rough & Tough leather. Like many of the other Red Wing Hertitage boots featured here, it also has the signature Traction Tred Crepe Wedge outsole.
The Goodyear welt and nicklet eyelets really bring it all together. Once again, the S.B. Foot Tanning oil-tanned leather makes all the difference. The quality of the boot unmistakable, it was a still fit at first wear. However, that may be due to the fact that this wearer (me) has a large foot - wide, US size 13. After a few wears, the leather started to stretch and fit to my foot and quickly became a regular in my boot rotation.
