Ive owned two pairs of Redwings and both were the most uncomfortable boot Ive ever owned. Just my opinion.

Kinda like buying a Honda. Who cares if the car lasts for 500,000 miles if it has all the comfort of riding a bicycle on a gravel road.

My family doctor and foot surgeon both told me I had my Red Wing boots to thank for my plantar fasciitis.

How did they figure that it was the Red Wing boot specifically? I had a problem for about a year in front of the ball of my foot. Dr. told me what it was, and that I would have to live with it. I wore Red Wing at the time and went to get another pair. The guy ask to measure my foot, I said I had always worn a 10d. He ask to measure me again to humor him. He said that it was no wonder that my foot hurt, that I wore a 12b. and my foot was forcing the boot to bend where it was not designed to. Problem was gone in less than a week, to never return.

My red wings are the most comfortable pair of shoes/boots I own. I would wear them all the time if I could.

As with anything Redwings are not a fit for everyone...But to say they caused a disease or malady is just ludicrous.

I've worn Redwings for over 20 yrs and they outlast the other brands I've tried from time to time AND are the most comfortable.

I've tried the Redwings at the store, my feet couldn't accept them... years later, after my brand Carolina quit making my style, trying different brands, when back to Redwing store as per PZ members recommendation, stills uncomfortable, this salewoman " played" with my feet and said due to the high insole, I will have trouble getting comfortable and sold me the inserts instead.

It wasn't the Red Wings, it was the flat insole lacking arch support that just happened to be in a Red Wing boot.
