History of Red Wing Shoes

Red Wing Shoes have been there for over 116 years, launched in 1905 in Red Wing, Minnesota by Charles Beckman and other investors. In 1912, with its new style, “Black and Brown Chief” became a massive success. The boot was created using leather that helps farmers keep their feet in good condition while at work. At the time of WWI, when men went to the war, women came on board to help with shoe creation. The 1088 Pershing boot was popular at that time, which continued until 1965. Later on, the Red Wing shoe company started making shoes for a much wider audience. Today King Toe Style 3512 comes under the very fashionable, comfortable, and durable class of boots. It has become one of the most recognized shoes from the Red Wing Heritage Collection. The Red Wing shoe factory has seen more than four generations of shoemakers.

The extra protective covering will help the upper last longer. It’s a great pick if you are looking for a comfortable, stylish work boot with a wide-toe room.
