Brand Focus – Red Wing

Named after the sleepy Minnesota town of its birth, Red Wing is now one of the most highly-regarded footwear brands on the planet.

Back in 1905, local shoe merchant Charles Beckman spotted a gap in the market for shoes that were specifically designed to stand up to the demands of traditional local industries such as mining. He therefore crafted footwear that could cope with the rigours of such draining pursuits, whilst providing the wearer with ultimate comfort.

The 8inch boot was the original, introduced in 1953, the 877 was initially marketed as a sport boot but since became the icon of the Red Wing brand, and the inspiration for the sporting spinoff Irish Setter Brand. The 6 inch moc toe we all know and love came into being after a request for the 877 to be made shorter, this re-designed iteration has now become the most sought after shoe in the Red Wing range.

Staying true to their name, Red Wing boots are still lovingly crafted in the town of Red Wing with the brands wide-range of toes and finishes always supported by high-quality leathers and Goodyear-welt construction, Red Wing boots are built to last.
