“These boots, made for J. Crew and listed as Red Wing 4183, are a fine example of a job well done. They break in easily and then fit like a glove. The leather ages beautifully and applying a bit of shoe wax improves appearance and durability of the surface. With proper care and attention as well as resoling when necessary, these boots should last for years to come.” --_cameosis_

Wear them with a suit when the morning weather is sub-par or on a snowy Saturday stroll.

“I have owned IRs for the last 3 years. They do well in rain, snow, hail,... They are by far the best made boots I have ever owned. They are very narrow. Which is great for my narrow feet, but may be too narrow for some. I suggest sizing down one size.” --deveandepot1
“These are a fine pair of boots that I use to beat around in the colder months. They're made very well and also very handsome. Look great with a pair of dark denim and a sweater. Nice leather laces. An aesthetically pleasing boot, but a couple drawbacks. I was expecting a very basic level of protection from the elements, however, they provide little. Heavy rain, puddles, snow -- all will soak...” --slack tide
