This fall Red Wing Shoes will launch a new shoe where the ultimate work boot will meet British heritage. The shoe was originally designed as a country walking shoe for the people around Red Wing, Minnesota. Farmers and gamekeepers who needed a boot that could withstand constant exposure to water and a boot that, when wet, would not break down and hurt a person’s feet. The small perforations were crafted into the leather of the toecaps and quarters of the boot to allow water to drain and the boot to dry at a quickened pace. The shoes, in Antique Brown Chapararal and Black Chaparral leather with a Nitrile Cork sole, will be available at the Red Wing Shoes store in Amsterdam, and online, coming fall.
