With a range of some of the most popular women’s boots in history, Red Wing’s heritage when it comes to the quality and durability of their women’s boots is unrivalled.
21 years after the company started making their famous boots for workers in demanding roles, Red Wing produced their first ever women’s boot in 1926, named ‘The Red Wing Gloria’. Recognising the efforts put into the outdoor activities held by women such as camping and hunting, Red Wing’s founder Charles Beckman designed the boot to be durable and long-lasting for the women participating in such outdoor activities to provide them with a shoe with substantial durability like no other.
Since the first boot was released, Red Wing have designed over 30 different styles and colours of women’s boots that still prove popular today. From the family who founded the company, Allison Gettings - the fourth generation Red Wing director - relaunched a collection in 2016 dedicated to women, as well as opening the world’s first women’s Red Wing store in Berlin. Ever since, she has worked to create boots for women, as well as men, that are crafted for all types of feet and lifestyles.
