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.
