The Blacksmith evolved from a boot that was worn in the fields and workshops during the day and shined up to go out at night. The 6-inch boot originally protected feet and ankles from the hot cinders of the forge. Today, it keeps out dirt in the summer and snow in the winter. True to its roots, the Blacksmith combines construction and materials that provide both rugged durability and handsome styling. Premium Red Wing leather, a three-quarter Goodyear welt and Puritan triple stitching sit atop a Vibram® 430 mini lug outsole for dependable all-season traction.
