THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

The early history of iron mining on Minnesota’s Mesabi Range is intertwined with that of Red Wing Shoe Company. The miners needed tough but comfortable boots that could stand up to the long days and tough conditions a northern Minnesota mine pit presented. Red Wing responded with a boot made of thick leather with an oil resisting outer sole, speed lacing hooks, and a comfortable cork midsole. The defining characteristic of these boots though, was their double layered toe, capped to protect the miner’s feet from injury as they labored with hand tools and heavy machinery. That boot is still made today, the fittingly named Iron Ranger, and it represents not only Red Wing’s commitment to making boots for working men and women but also its Minnesota origins.

    great quality boot--runs a little long

    I bought the 6 inch Chelsea Boot for my wife, who normally wears 7.5 in other boots (Frye, Nisolo, etc.). We ordered size 7 knowing Red Wing runs long, however, we had to exchange them for the 6.5 (thank you Kathleen and Ballad of the Bird Dog for great customer service!) The last of this boot fits a little tight through her wide forefoot and instep, however, it is starting to break in after a couple of weeks.
    The boot is American made with great quality leather and a durable Vibram rubber sole.
