Red Wing Heritage

The Beginning of a Legacy.

Red Wing Shoe Company was started in 1905 by Charles Beckman determined to make "Truly good shoes."  From humble beginnings Charles started the company in 1905 in Red Wing Minnesota with several other investors. Carefully crafted each Red Wing Shoe is crafted with skill and precision, and more importantly by people who care about the quality. Every heritage boot starts with the leather. S.B. Foot Tanning Co is best known for oil-tanned leather, rough-out leather, and smooth-finished leather. The heritage line will continue forever. Here is a small portion of the heritage boot line we carry in store and online with a description of their best qualities.

Unlike other Red Wing boots, the chukka was designed for lighter indoor work that includes bending, climbing, and kneeling. 3141 features signature Atlas Tred polyurethane outsole, premium Brair Oil Slick leather and Goodyear welt construction.
