red wing boots 507

Red Wing, founded in Minnesota 111 years ago and offering custom boots and workwear tailored for specific industries – oil rigs, construction sites, railroads, farms – is protected by Red Wing products worldwide. Red Wing serves customers around the world on oil rigs, construction sites, railroads and farm fields.

Over the past two years, the company has been developing a women's collection to adapt to changes in today's boot market and Allison Gettings, Director of Product Creation at Alden called this effort a “big deal.”

1. The Blacksmith

The Blacksmith Work Boot was originally worn to protect farm fields and workshops during the day and shine up at night; today it remains a timeless 6-inch work boot designed to keep out dirt in summer months and snow in winter months. Constructed from rugged yet stylish materials, its construction provides long-term durability without compromising its beautiful aesthetics.

Premium leather, a three-quarter Goodyear welt with Puritan triple stitch and an all-weather Vibram(r) 430 Mini-lug outsole provide reliable all-season traction. Completed with dull guilt speed hooks and eyelets, this heritage boot will stand the test of time with just moderate maintenance requirements.

Red Wing boots can be an excellent investment if treated appropriately, though it takes time for them to break in properly. They may feel stiff at first but become much more comfortable after multiple months of wear.

2. The Classic Moc

Red Wing footwear stands as one of the premier American workwear brands. Originally, its boots were intended to equip Minnesota miners and workers before World War II; today however, Red Wing offers an expansive product selection including their Heritage line.

Classic Moc boots have become one of the world's best-selling boots since their introduction. Made of high-quality material and designed with easy care in mind, this timeless boot can last you for many years with regular resoles.

3. The Iron Ranger

Red Wing first began manufacturing work-specific boots in 1908 for farmers and blacksmiths; over the decades since, however, their heritage styles have become quite fashionable and can be worn both casually as well as dressily for both heavy work.

The Iron Ranger boot, named for Minnesota's iron miners, has become an indispensable staple of Red Wing Heritage footwear. Boasting double leather toe-cap strength as well as classic Red Wing design and silhouette elements.

This boot's leather is full-grain, meaning its natural grain remains strong and intact. This type of leather has a much smoother and uniform look compared to corrected leather made by sanding away the top layer of hide to thin and lessen its durability.

4. The Classic Moc 1907

Red Wing's Classic Moc 1907 work boots have long been one of its signature styles, originally created in 1952 for hunters and sportsmen but quickly becoming essential wear for farms and factories alike.

This 6-inch moc toe boot is handcrafted from oil-tanned Copper Rough & Tough leather for stylish good looks while remaining durable. Additionally, its traction tred cushion crepe wedge outsole ensures you stay on your feet all day long.

This style is ideal for anyone with wide feet, though the tall toe box may make a tight fit difficult at first. To create enough room in your footwear for free movement of the foot, we advise trying this pair on in store before purchasing online.

5. The Iron Ranger

Red Wing's Iron Ranger boot is one of its best-known styles, being designed initially for iron miners in Minnesota but now beloved by people worldwide. Boasting toe and heel reinforcement features that remain popular today.

Red Wing's Iron Ranger work boot, initially introduced as part of their Heritage line, has now evolved to become more refined and fashionable while still possessing all of the quality craftsmanship and durability associated with Red Wing products.

This model is handcrafted from premium Amber Harness leather and offers classic 6” styling with its double layer leather toe cap, leather heel pocket and nitrile cork sole. Water-resistant yet stylish; perfect for any outfit!
