From Red Wing Japan comes the most excellent Copper Rough & Tough 2971 Engineer Boots. These are some badass boots, y’all. Made in USA, 11” tall, Goodyear welt, nickel buckles, Traction Tred wedge soles, and triple-stitched Copper Rough & Tough uppers. Being an engineer boot, these are indeed rough and tough, so you don’t want to be babying these.
The sizing runs small, keep in mind, but they’re buttery smooth in slipping on once broken in. Any Red Wing fan can tell you that their boots are damn sturdy and reliable, and these don’t look to be any different. The Goodyear welt being a trademark of durability, don’t you dare think that these won’t be long lasting, and capable of handling whatever you’re throwing at them.
Available for $320 at Standard & Strange.
