Named after the Minnesota town it calls home, Red Wing is one of the U.S.’s foremost producers of work boots and shoes that can withstand any activity – from logging and mining to all of your wildest weekend adventuring about town. Founded by shoe merchant Charles Beckman in 1905, Red Wing supplied the U.S. Army’s footwear during World Wars I and II and, by the 1980s, was designing more than 150 rugged footwear styles — all handmade by its dedicated team of craftspeople. Still family-owned after more than a century in business, Red Wing offers everything from sturdy oxfords and hiking shoes to motorcycle and chukka boots, sneakers, and work boots for every trade. The brand’s esteemed Heritage collection features wax-thread triple stitching for maximum durability.
Ah, that perennial problem: You’re scouring a sale for shoes, and just when you think you’ve found the perfect pair, and are starting to figure out which suits and jeans they'll work with, you suddenly discover that the store is completely, utterly sold out of them in your size. It’s the shopping equivalent of that old trope in the movies where a turntable needle scratches across a record. Well, whether you’re looking for sneakers, boots, or lace-ups, you won’t experience that here, because every shoe in this sale comes in your size.
End the weekend on a high note with a great deal on some of menswear’s greatest hits. Here you’ll find everything from suede bomber jackets by Marc by Marc Jacobs to sturdy boots by Red Wings. It’s the kind of selection you’ll want to tell your friends about (but only after you’ve made your picks).
In case you were wondering, you definitely do not need to be on a boat to rock a pair of boat shoes.

Unless, of course, that wedding is on a boat.
Each week, we bring you some of the very best of what’s on offer at our editorially driven brother site. From apparel to accessories to footwear, these in-season essentials are as versatile as they are stylish.
