If you are looking for some three season boots that will last a lifetime, look great and even be dressy enough for the weekends, then look no further than Red Wing's Heritage Beckman Boot.
While they take an investment in several pairs of thick wool socks, and a two month break in period, like any good leather, it is well worth the hard work and blisters. I picked up a pair in store on a trip to Red Wing, MN. They are a daily wear and have been in the water, mud and office at work. They clean up great and after they are broke in, rival my Cole Haan Air Madisons.
The are made from a much thicker leather than the Iron Rangers, but from all the reviews I have read, these boots have been told that they are "meant to take a beating" from customer after customer. Looking for a good investment in boots? Then look no further than a pair of Beckmans.
