Red Wing Shoe Co.

Red Wing is situated in Southwest Minnesota and was pronounced as a city in 1857. The city, named after a tribal chief who succeeded a local Dakota tribe who ruled the region. Introduced in 1928 the iconic "Red Feather" logo, refers back to the tribal chief now refined to the one you see today created in 2007.

In 1905, Mr Charles Beckman, a Minnesota shoe merchant, realised there was a necessity for strong and reliable footwear suitable for demanding work such as mining, logging and farming. He wanted a product strong enough to be worn every day and comfortable enough to support the work industry in some of the toughest and most challenging of environments. He would call the company "Red Wing Shoes".

Up to this very day, the use of premium leathers would be a complete necessity for all of our footwear along with our handcrafted manufacturing processes and techniques. These skills have been past down through generations of shoemakers and every single pair is made with the same amount of love and care up to this very day. Our tannery, "S.B Foot", founded in 1872, a previous work place for Charles, is located in Featherstone Township. Its location was convenient to Red Wings original plant one and in 1987 we finally acquired the factory remaining a truly integral part of our history.

One of our most important boots would come 50 years later, and in 1952 the birth of "The Irish Setter" hunting boot elevated the brand to worldwide stature. The "877" 8-inch hunting boot got its name from its beautifully rich colour, tanned using the sap from sequoia bark resembling the coat of an Irish Setter hunting dog. Its renowned white cushion crepe sole, shallow non-collection traction tread was adaptable and crafted for complete comfort with full arch support. A year later a 6-inch version, the "875" evolved and it would be these two boots that would take the foundation of our legacy.

Since we began, we have never comprised our quality and this will never change. That's a promise. Wear them, enjoy them and they will outlive you.
