Red Wing. Red Wing Shoes: 100 Years of Expertise & Good Taste

Red Wing Shoes is one of the great All-American companies that was created in the beginning of the 20th century. Founded in the city of Red Wing, Minnesota, by a man named Charles Beckman, it breathes quality, style and great craftsmanship. The founder’s mission was pretty simple – and is still very accurate to this day: make truly good shoes.

At the start, Red Wing’s most famous products were the classic and quite heavy-duty work boots – made to resist the everyday life of American workers. The sellers used to drive over to the shops – with a trailer full of boots – so that the workers could easily buy their shoes. Costumer service level: not bad at all!
The company continues to expand and brings new ideas on the market. In the 30’s, they brought the Billy Boot; a boot that was manufactured with a special compartment – made to carry a pocket knife. It quickly became a best seller.

Loyal to its values and principles, Red Wing Shoes always brings out top-of-the-line products that are well crafted and 100% practical.

To this day, this is still true. They only use the best manufacturing techniques – whether it be regarding the triple stitches, the Traction Tred out soles, or the final waxing process. They also get very high quality leather and collaborate with the S.B Foot Tanning Co. to tan everything in their own shops.
What you must remember about Red Wing Shoes is that they make extremely durable and comfortable boots. At Altitude Sports, we fell in love with the Heritage Collection – wich focuses on elegant and classy shoes, accessories and their care products.

The perfect blend between high class and utility, in terms of boots.
