The 4563 Red Wing Boot Giveaway

Red Wing recently released a new boot as part of their awesome Heritage collection: the 4563. First developed for farmers, Red Wing introduced the 8-inch round toe work boot in 1919. The combination of two traditional styles, round toe boots provided the comfort of an oxford with the durability of a work boot. The round toe design made the boots more durable, as it was achieved by eliminating a seam by using one larger piece of leather instead of sewing together two smaller pieces.

Another great heritage feature of the 4563 is Red Wing’s signature Traction Tred sole, which was used on their first Irish Setter boots made in the 1950s. Farmers and upland game hunters loved the self-cleaning sole because it would keep the mud off their boots as they worked.

These boots go great with a pair of jeans, whether you’re at a worksite or out on the town. And best of all they’re Made in America, from leather crafted at a tannery in Minnesota.

The 4563 is available exclusively at Nordstroms, but Red Wing offered me a pair to give away to a lucky AoM reader as well.

I would wear these boots to dive to the bottom of the North Arabian Sea, find Bin Laden’s corpse, and kick him in the balls.

I would love to have a pair of these comfortable Boots in surgery. I practice Orthopedics. During arthroscopic proceedures there is always a lot of irrigation solution leaking onto the operating room floor. Preforming this type of surgery requires a good view of the affected joint. This exposure is obtained by manipulating the extremity. This requires me to use shreliable traction to which to obtain Even during joint replacement surgery blood can get on the flooroften . There is . is always

6715 Peter York January 12, 2012 at 5:58 pm

I would wear them everywhere as replacement work boots from a recent accident I had in which my last pair were trashed in a lawn mower accident that almost took my foot. Lucky for me I was wearing the right boots for the job and because of them I still have both of my feet.

6716 Gianni LaBarba January 12, 2012 at 6:14 pm

6725 Derek Laird January 12, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Id show them off at work. Im a 600 ton press operator working 12 hour shifts and these would be the best boots for the job. After I won them Id show them off to everyone at work and brag about redwing and brag even more about AOM!

6726 Terran January 12, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I’d wear them everyday on my 2 mile walk to campus. Keep my feet dry when the weather gets nasty!

6727 Drew January 12, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I would wear these boots on the 4 kilometer walk to my highschool in 7 inches of snow, I am sure they would keep my toes nice and warm. Also, I would wear them pretty much everywhere else. After reading the article, I found that the sole design is quite interesting, because my current pair of (cold) shoes that I wear to school, water and mud gets trapped inside the sole, and I walk around squeaking for quite a while.

I would love to have a pair of these comfortable Boots in surgery. I am a Physician Assistant working specializing in assisting with arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder. Arthroscopys require good visualization of the joint achieved by manipulating of the patent’s extremity.

During surgery a mild salt solution is continuously pumped into the joint to distend the joint lining to aid visualization. About 75% of this solution is recovered using a suction device. The remainder flows onto the operating room floor. This fluid pooling around me makes the floor quite slippery. Footwear with excellent traction is essential. Resistance to salt is an added bonus

These boots will be excellent for this wet environment. They are designed to maintain traction on wet and oily surfaces so they will help eliminate the traction issue allowing me to focus on the patient. As a bonus, they will allow air circulation discouraging fungal infections unlike the rubber boots I currently use.

6729 PMacGhriogair January 12, 2012 at 7:30 pm

I would wear them hiking through the Scottish Highlands.

6730 John Burns January 12, 2012 at 7:37 pm

6736 Adi January 12, 2012 at 10:03 pm
