ABOUT RED WING SHOE COMPANY
OVER 110 YEARS OF PURPOSE-BUILT WORK BOOTS
Excellence is a standard which transcends the test of time. For over a century Red Wing purpose-built footwear has been at the spearhead of innovation in the standard of excellence for work boots.
At the turn of the 20th century a shoe merchant named Charles Beckman in Red Wing, Minnesota saw a local necessity for shoes specifically designed for the demanding work of industries such as mining, logging and farming. The rigors of these jobs required footwear which was tough enough to outlast harsh working conditions, but Beckman envisioned a shoe that was also comfortable enough for the hardworking people who wore them. Beckman set out to develop work boots to fill this need and in 1905 he opened a company that would change the market. Beckman named his company Red Wing Shoes, and a new standard for excellence was born.
Over 110 years has passed since our founding and our commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear remains as unwavering as Beckman’s vision. Our products consistently perform in environments spanning from the Mideast oil fields to the Midwest corn fields. Still headquartered in Red Wing, Minnesota, Red Wing boots protect workers in more than one hundred countries across the world, an accomplishment built by years of hard work, endurance, and the promise to never compromise on our quality.
A testament to that promise can be found in our Heritage collection which is made up of footwear that represents the American ideals of prosperous work and excellence. As can our use of premium Red Wing Shoe Leather from our very own S.B. Foot Tannery .
Red Wing Shoes is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
ADDITIONAL RED WING BRANDS
Hunting and Work Footwear
Irish Setter is a brand that stands for innovation. We introduced ourselves in 1950 with the first of our breed, boot style 854. This distinctive boot was built using rich Red Russet leather, the color of an Irish Setter hunting dog. It was with that boot our tradition of loyalty to hunters began.
Our boots combine the determination of the hunt with the pride of a day’s work well done. Our commitment to the sport is what drives us. We are in the blinds, the stands, the swamps and the fields. We are tough enough to play hard and we work even harder. We are up before the dawn and stay long into the dusk. We are proud to be known as ‘the hunting boot that never quits.’
Like the loyal bird dogs who accompany their owners into the fields and woodland, Irish Setter boots don’t let up and don’t let down.
Irish Setter: Field Experienced.
