Versatile and reliable, this style of shoe was originally used in farm fields and blacksmith workshops during the day before being cleaned and shined up for a night out on the town.
Today, the Blacksmith is built using premium Red Wing leathers and a durable Vibram 430 Mini-lug outsole for extra grip. The height of this 6-inch style keeps out snow in the winter and dirt in the summer, while the classic construction will keep your feets comfortable even after long hours of work.
The Hawthorne muleskinner leather is a "rough-out", which means that the leather has been used with the flesh-side out. This gives the leather a rough surface that will prevent dirt from damaging the boots. This kind of leather is perhaps the one that will age in the most beautiful way, showing traces of what you and your boots have experienced together.
