Red Wing Shoes
Around the turn of the 19th century a Red Wing, MN shoe merchant named Charles Beckman saw a local necessity for shoes specifically designed for the demanding work of industries such as mining, logging and farming. The rigors of these jobs required footwear which was tough enough to outlast harsh working conditions, but Beckman envisioned a shoe that was also comfortable enough for the hardworking people who wore them.
Since then, Red Wing boots have literally formed the foundation of the American workforce for over a century now. These are boots designed to represent “the American ideals of prosperous work and excellence.” The Red Wings we carry are made exactly as they were up to eighty years ago. They’re not going anywhere except onto your feet and off to work.
