Since 1905, Red Wing Heritage has remained steadfast in producing high-quality boots and shoes. The American shoe manufacturer is one of the most reputable in the industry today.
These are among the company’s best-selling welted boots and perhaps the most versatile boots you can get on the market today.
A round toe style boot, the Beckman is made from Red Wing’s exclusive Cigar Featherstone dress leather. This leather has a polished surface that radiates striking beauty and quality.
The Blacksmith, on the other hand, is designed with blacksmiths in mind. Its Vibram 430 mini-lug sole will outlive any other boots you own. Typical of a blacksmith’s boot, this boot looks rugged and reliable. It’ll take a harsh beating and still look great.
But which one of the two should you buy?
These boots are quite similar, but they have a number of differences that make each one special in its own right. We are going to take a detailed look at those differences so that you can choose the boot that best suits your needs.
