Excellence is a standard that transcends the test of time. For over a century Red Wing purpose-built footwear has been at the spearhead of innovation in the standard of excellence for work boots.
At the turn of the 20th century a shoe merchant named Charles Beckman in Red Wing, Minnesota 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. Beckman set out to develop work boots to fill this need and in 1905 he opened a company that would change the market. Beckman named his company Red Wing Shoes, and a new standard for excellence was born.
Over 110 years have passed since the founding and commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear remains as unwavering as Beckman’s vision. The products consistently perform in environments spanning from the Mideast oil fields to the Midwest cornfields. Still headquartered in Red Wing, Minnesota, Red Wing boots protect workers in more than one hundred countries across the world, an accomplishment built by years of hard work, endurance, and the promise to never compromise on quality.
Besides the convenience factor, Red Wing shoes are also stylish and very fashionable. This is the reason why the shoes are worn in daily life also from people who don’t wear them for protection in their job. We love wearing Red Wing Boots on a daily basis, no matter where we go. Especially we recommend wearing Red Wing boots when riding your motorbike. Those boots look great and give you all the protection a shoe should give you on a motorbike.
