With a history stretching back over 100 years, Red Wing is a brand that is unmatched when it comes to the heritage and know-how in producing some of the best quality boots and shoes in the world.
The company was started in 1905 in Red Wing, Minnesota by Charles Beckman who identified a need for tough, reliable and well made boots for workers in demanding roles. From creating boots that were up to the job for miners, loggers and metal workers to supplying the US military with boots capable of surviving the trenches of World War 1, Red Wing has always been relied upon to make boots that last.
And with the Red Wing Heritage range, today’s customers are able to wear classic and iconic designs from the brand’s rich history. These are boots that combine superb looks, premium materials and construction, and are still handmade in the USA to the incredibly high standards that Red Wing is known for.
