The Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam located in the “9 Streets” area pays tribute to the rich history of the brand, which was launched in 1905 by Charles Beckman who spotted a growing demand for sturdy work boots. The Red Wing Shoes are displayed on top of steel and antique glass show cases, which are filled with coal. The dark, concrete walls have been decorated with workman’s tools that date back to the days when Red Wing was a fledgling company. One wooden wall, which itself was made from materials from an old Amish water tower, is used to exhibit most of the accessories on offer. Everything between these walls reminds you of the history of Red Wing, but in a contemporary setting. The store’s design is the result of a collaboration between a number of exceptional designers: Joachim Baan, Pim van Lingen, Kenneth Jaworski, Roeland interieurbouw and the gentlemen from Tenue de Nîmes
The Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam’s collection consists of a wide range of Red Wing Shoes from the Heritage collection, shoe maintenance products, bags, apparel, belts, hats as well as other accessories. Some of the brands that represent this part of the overall assortment include Ebbets Field Vintage, Filson and Atelier de L’Armee. Aside from all the beautiful leather goods, the store also provides a shoe conditioning service for the true shoe fanatic: next to the entrance you’ll find a special chair, reserved for customers looking for a treatment of their beloved boots.
