One model of recalled Red Wing steel toe boots.
Label inside the boot’s tongue style number date code.

Red Wing is recalling 45 styles of steel toe boots because some may have a faulty toe cap that could fail in an impact. The recall applies to approximately 105,000 pairs sold in the United States and 9,000 sold in Canada between October 2012 and November 2013.

No injuries have been reported and the company says that while the recall affects 114,000 pairs of boots it believes only 2,000 pairs with defective caps are in circulation. Since it's impossible to know which 2,000 pairs have those caps all 114,000 are being recalled. The recalled boots were manufactured in the company's U.S. plant and sold for between $185 and $340.

Consumers are advised to stop using these boots and take them to a Red Wing dealer for free replacements or to contact the company at (800) 733-9464 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. CT Saturday, by email at voluntary.recall@redwingshoes.com or online at www.redwingshoes.com and click on Safety Notice for more information.
