Mining, farming and logging have been at the roots of Red Wing for over 110 years, demanding that all of their products stand the test of time. Field-tested in the toughest of environments, Red Wing builds their products to be durable and never settle for anything other than the best quality.
Charles Beckman, a local shoe merchant from Minnesota, founded Red Wing in 1905, seeing a gap in the market for sturdier hand crafted shoes. Since founding, Red Wing shoes have always assured that the quality of their shoes has taken precedence. Having their roots in the mining, farming and logging industry allowed Red Wing to test the durability of their products in some of the toughest environments and constantly push for improvements. All Red Wing customers can expect to receive the very best possible products that are built to last.
