Everything You Need to Know About Red Wing Heritage Shoes and Boots
Welcome to Brand Breakdown, a series of comprehensive yet easy-to-digest guides to your favorite companies, with insights and information you won’t find on the average About page.
Red Wing Shoe Company is named after the small Minnesota town where it manufactures a range of rugged boots and shoes.
Founded in 1905 by Charles Beckman — and still privately held and family-operated today — the brand grew quickly, supplying doughboys with boots designed for the muddy trenches of WWI.
After the war, Red Wing became a household name across the country thanks to its safe and hearty boots made for factory workers, farmers and outdoorsmen.
Sturdy, classic and well-loved by generations, the boots and shoes are still handmade in Red Wing’s Minnesota plant.
While mainline Red Wing continues to supply construction workers and outdoorsmen, Red Wing Heritage, introduced in 2008, revives styles from the brand’s archive. classic models, the styles prioritize work-ready function.
“The foundation is built upon making quality footwear for people to wear on the job,” says Steve Spencer, Managing Director of Red Wing Heritage.
The brand’s boots are the gold standard for men’s footwear and are stocked at men’s clothing shops the world over.
Made to the same exacting standards as their work boots, Red Wing Heritage styles have a wide appeal and are just as appropriate on the ranch or factory floor as they are in the office or at home.
This guide will help you navigate classic styles from the Red Wing Heritage catalog, but before you dive in, take a minute to familiarize yourself with important boot terminology.
Terms to Know
Every shoe is made up of a variety of parts that all affect the comfort, style and durability. These terms aren’t specific to Red Wing Heritage but are important to understand before exploring specific boots.
Outsole: This is the part of the boot that touches the ground. The outsole can be made from all matter of materials. Your dress shoes probably have leather outsoles while most Red Wings will have a rubber outsole or a combination of rubber and leather.
Midsole: This section of the boot separates your feet from the outsole. The harder the midsole, the longer the break-in time, but the longer the lifespan.
Welt: The welt is one of the keys to a long shoe life. This is the piece of leather around the edge of the sole which the rest of the boot is attached to. Most Red Wings are made with Goodyear-welt construction. This patented process makes the boots weather resistant and allows them to be resoled again and again.
Last: This is the silhouette of a shoe or boot. In the manufacturing process, the shoe upper is pulled over the last to give it its shape. Red Wing uses at least eight different lasts dating back to the 1930s.
Cap Toe: A self-explanatory style in which an additional layer of leather forms a reinforcement “cap” over the toe (read: added durability).
Moc Toe: One of Red Wing’s most recognizable toe shapes. Named for the moccasin style and shape, this style is created when the leather seams meet on the top of the toe.
Vibram: One of the oldest and most storied rubber outsole brands, Vibram is renowned for its quality.
Lug Sole: A classic rubber sole construction common in Red Wings and most other heavy-duty work boots featuring thick rubber treads. Invented by Vibram, the lug sole provides great traction and weather protection.
Traction Tred: This non-marking outsole is most closely associated with Red Wing boots. The large white rubber wedge won’t mark factory floors and provides generous cushioning.
Irish Setter: Irish Setter is a traditional Red Wing brand geared towards hunters. While the modern styles feature insulation and cushioning, the vintage Irish Setter line is more akin to Red Wing Heritage styles.
You can find many older pairs on eBay and Etsy — they’re easily identified by the Irish Setter logo on the inside of the tongue.
Red Wing Heritage also reproduces a few of the best vintage styles, but to get your hands on those you will have to look in Japan.
A Visual Guide to Boot Terms
Often, it’s difficult to picture how a boot is actually put together, where the stitches go and what you’re actually standing on. So we sourced prime examples of each type of boot construction — Cemented, Blake/McKay, True Moccasin, Goodyear Welt and Stitchdown — from some of the top brands in the industry and cut them in half. Read the Story
Making one pair of Red Wings takes about 250 steps from start to finish. While we are not going to list them in detail, here is a short breakdown of how these legendary boots are made.
It all starts with the leather. All Red Wing Heritage boots are made from leather tanned at S.B. Foot Tanning Company. Owned by Red Wing since the 1980s, the tannery has been providing leather for Red Wing since they opened their doors in 1905. All the hides are tanned by hand with the company’s wooden tanning casks in a factory just down the road from Red Wing’s facilities.
Once tanned, stretched, rolled and finished the leather is cut into patterns. Because no two pieces of leather are the same, it takes a well-trained craftsman to best utilize an entire hide.
Once the leather has been cut, the shoes and boots are sewn together using Puritan stitch machines which provide unique triple-stitch lines.
No longer made, these vintage machines are maintained by a cadre of in-house repairmen to keep them humming (some of them have been in use in the Red Wing factory for over 50 years).
After being sewn, the shoe is lasted and the upper is attached to the midsole and outsole with the Goodyear welting process. “The Red Wing brand is built on quality, craftsmanship and premium materials,” explains Spencer. “There is no marketing story that can create that.”
Red Wing Heritage is constantly expanding, pulling from its archives as well as designing new styles that fit the brand’s mission. “We always reach back into our archives, whether is it something directly we would pull and bring forward to today or simply inspiration,” says Spencer. Here is a breakdown of designs that everyone should know.
Style Number 877: 8-Inch Classic Moc
Introduced in 1953, this is the iconic Red Wing style. Designed with a white wedge sole and moc toe, the tall eight-inch boot was designed for hunters and sportsmen, but also found a devoted following on the work site.
Style Number 8085: Iron Ranger
Hardwearing and reinforced with a cap-toe, the Iron Ranger can be dressed up or worn as a work boot. Designed for iron miners, it is made from oil resistant leather and features speed hooks for ease of lacing.
Style Number 875: Classic Moc
The Classic Moc is virtually identical to the 8-Inch Moc, but is two inches shorter. As such, it is a bit more practical for the city dweller. The style comes in eight different types of leathers.
Style Number 3137: Work Chukka
Designed as an indoor workboot, the Work Chukka features a white rubber wedge sole and rugged leather upper. It is an ideal option for an office workers or factory workers.
Style Number 9011: Blacksmith
The Blacksmith takes after boots that were worn by the metal-working tradespeople to protect their feet from scalding sparks and molten iron. It stands six inches tall with a mini-lug sole, cork filling and three-quarter Goodyear Welt.
Style Number 101: Postman Oxford
Designed for use by policemen and mail carriers, the Postman Oxford was introduced in 1954. A uniform shoe only available in Black Chaparral leather with a cushioned wedge crepe sole, these are incredibly sturdy and comfortable.
Style Number 3321: Weekender Chukka
Red Wing spends a lot of time outfitting feet for work, but it also designs styles for off-the-clock wear. The Weekender collection is lightweight, featuring stitchdown construcion and rubber wedge soles.
Style Number 2927: Sawmill
Drawing upon boots from the 1970s, the Sawmill is made with winter climes in mind with a water-resistant storm welt, a felt wool insole and slosh-ready Vibram lug soles.
Style Number 3330: Wacouta Camp Moc
The Wacouta Camp Moc resembles summer footwear staples the preppy boat shoe, with a low profile and moccasin-style toe.
Style Number 8801: Classic Supersole
The Classic Supersole looks very much Red Wing’s iconic 875 Moc Toe Boot, with a few key differences. The padded leather collar provides comfort at the ankle and the cement construction makes the boot watertight.
Style Number 3335: Wacouta 6″ Moc Toe Boot
The Wacouta 6″ combines Red Wing’s tough SB Foot Tannery leather with water-resistant waxed canvas and stitchdown construction for a hunting-inspired boot that’s lighter and more flexible than most.
Style Number 9438: Williston Chelsea
As part of Red Wing’s Williston line of shoes, the 9438 is one of the dressier and sleeker offerings in the line.
Style Number 8064: Merchant
The Merchant shares similarities with the Blacksmith, but takes a more formal approach by forgoing the speedhooks and French binding and opting for a sleeker toe and a more subtle rubber sole.
Style Number 2942: Roughneck
You can think of the Roughneck as a more aggressive Classic Moc with its substantial heavy lug sole. But, it’s also a bit easier to don and doff thanks to its handy speedhooks.
Style Number 3312: Weekender Chelsea
The Weekender Chelsea, as the name would suggest, is a casual shoe that’s not meant to straddle the line between dress and work the Williston Chelsea.
Style Number 9435: Williston Six-Inch
This is the most premium (and dressiest) boot that Red Wing offers. It can take a beating the rest of them, but is decidedly the most formal of the lot.
Style Number 9431: Williston Oxford
Where you would take the Postman shoe out on the mail route, you’d take the Williston Oxford out to a nice dinner. The sleek toe box and the blind eyelets make it a shoe you’ll want to keep polished.
Style Number 8188: Pecos Boot
Originally built as Red Wing’s response to the cowboy boot, the lauded Pecos boot features a roughout leather upper and a shorter block heel to separate itself a bit from the western competition.
Style Number 877: Todd Snyder x Red Wing Heritage Moc Toe Boot
In cahoots with venerated American designer Todd Snyder, the classic 8-inch Moc Toe Boot is trimmed down a couple inches while mixing smooth leather and suede.
Style Number 8884: Mossy Oak Camouflage
There’s hardly a more American boot than this camo rendition. It’s part of Red Wing Heritage’s limited edition range of boots and it’s as hard to find as it is difficult to see.
Style Number 8829: Billy Boot
The Billy Boot was first introduced in the 1930s as a children’s boot and originally came with a pocket knife to accompany its nifty knife sheath. Red Wing brought the EDC-friendly boot back for adults in 2019 and it’s all nearly sold out.
Style Number 5679: Fragment x Red Wing
Japan has been among the most fervent when it comes to Americana. So, it makes sense that lauded Japanese designer Hiroshi Fujiwara would take a crack at a Red Wing collaboration of his own. Using a Chromexcel leather for its sheen and pliability, as well as black tonal stitching, the streetwear take on the workwear classic is both brooding and burly.
Style Number 997: Red Wing x New Balance Sneakers
When two iconic American shoe manufacturers come together, it’s this. Equal parts Red Wing and New Balance, the collaborative sneaker features Red Wing’s iconic Hawthorne muleskinner leather and brick-red motif rendered in New Balance’s popular 997 silhouette.
Style Number 4327: Eat Dust x Red Wing Heritage
The fiery-red take on Red Wing’s pull-on boot is the hot idea from Belgian brand Eat Dust. It features a mashup of smooth leather with nappy rough-out leather worthy for motorcycle rides.
Vintage: Irish Setter
Though not part of the Red Wing Heritage label, the Irish Setter boot has a dedicated following of its own for its durability and the beautiful color of its leather, named after the rich coats of the Irish Setter dog.
Red Wing Heritage did bring it back for a brief period in 2018, but only to limited quantities.
The Irish Setter label today is still focused on boots for working and hunting, but at a slightly lower price point than its Red Wing Heritage label.

14 gifts for new and expecting parents during the coronavirus quarantine

— Recommendations are independently chosen by Reviewed’s editors. Purchases you make through our links may earn us a commission.
Being a new or expecting parent is hard. Being a new or expecting parent during a global pandemic is even harder.
You're discouraged from leaving your home (even to go to the grocery store), essential supplies toilet paper and diapers are selling out everywhere, and your friends and family can't come help out (or even meet the new baby). It feels overwhelming at best and impossible at worst.
In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has continued to stress that hospitals and birth centers are safe for delivery—however, many hospitals have imposed stricter rules and regulations limiting visitors or, per the CDC's recommendations, even separating newborns from their moms (if the mother is suspected to have the virus).
“Giving birth during the pandemic was extremely stressful and scary,” Gretchen Caso, who gave birth to baby Avery in late March, recalls. “Leading up to it we were really concerned about getting sick and due to the constantly changing visitor policies at the hospital, I honestly thought I might have to give birth alone without my husband.
Normally you’d feel safest at the hospital, with doctors and nurses to help you navigate taking care of a newborn, but our entire stay I just kept thinking about how exposed we were and was focused on getting us home as quickly as possible. Even once home, every cough or sneeze feels heavy with the weight of potentially having the virus.
Fortunately, Caso and other new mamas say there are ways you can support the new or expecting parents in your own life—while still social distancing. Below are some of the best gifts you can get for new moms and dads in quarantine, from gift cards for food and grocery delivery to subscription boxes full of parenting and pregnancy must-haves.
1. Our favorite meal kit: Home Chef
Tasty meals delivered right to her doorstep? Yes, please. (Photo: Home Chef)
Just because she's home all day (whether pregnant or with her newborn) doesn't mean she has time—or energy—to whip up an intricate homemade meal.
But with restaurants closed and grocery stores low on stock, what's a new mama to do? One way to help her out is by gifting her a subscription to a meal kit delivery service which includes everything she needs for a healthy, delicious dinner.
Of all the ones we've tested, we Home Chef the best because the ingredients are super high-quality and fresh and the recipes are easy to follow.
Give a Home Chef gift card starting at $60
2. A subscription to Kindle Unlimited
So. Many. Books. (Photo: Reviewed/Michael Roorda)
What is a mama supposed to do while her little one is nursing or napping? Or a mama-to-be while she’s dealing with pregnancy fatigue? Samantha Amato, who gave birth to her first child in late March, says she loves reading books on her Kindle (since she can't get out to the library).
“There are so many books to choose from on Kindle Unlimited that I'm never bored and it's a lot more entertaining than just mindlessly scrolling through my phone,” she explains.
And moms don't even need a Kindle to use the Kindle Unlimited app—it can be used on almost any device, including tablets, phones, and laptops.
Gift a Kindle Unlimited subscription for $9.99 per month
3. Grocery delivery so she can #stayhome

Right now, everyone is being encouraged to stay home to prevent the spread of coronavirus—and while going to the grocery store is the exception, it can be hard for new or expecting moms to get out (juggling baby, grocery bags, face masks, and sanitizer is a recipe for disaster). Keep her fridge stocked by ordering her groceries from an online service Instacart, Amazon Fresh, or Shipt. You can ask her for her grocery list so you can order for her or simply get her a gift card.
- Shop Instacart
- Shop Amazon Fresh
- Shop Shipt
3. Food delivery gift cards so she doesn't have to cook

The last thing any new mom wants to do at the end of yet another tiresome day of feeding, cleaning, bathing, and playing is slave away in the kitchen.
And even though mamas-to-be don't have a little one yet, they're equally tired just from being pregnant.
Since Mom and Dad can't go out to a restaurant to eat right now, treat them to takeout with a gift card to a food delivery service GrubHub or DoorDash.
4. The boozy subscription service everyone loves: Firstleaf
Each box contains six custom-chosen bottles. (Photo: Firstleaf/Bouqs)
After nine long months of turning down every single glass of wine, Mom can finally drink again—and she needs it now more than ever, given the fact that we're living amidst a global pandemic. I.e.
she will love you for a gift card to Firstleaf, a subscription service that will deliver a curated box of wine right to her doorstep each month.
Our kitchen and cooking editor tried it out for herself and loved the variety of wines available along with how easy and convenient Firstleaf is to use.

6. An easy-to-open water bottle

Bottles aren't just for baby—moms and mamas-to-be need to stay hydrated, too. And with bottled water selling out at stores, a reusable water bottle is a great gift. But not just any water bottle will do.
According to Amato, the ideal water bottle for new moms is one that you can open with one hand. 'You only have one hand while you’re nursing and it makes you so thirsty!” she says.
Here at Reviewed, we recommend the Brita Premium Filtering Water Bottle (which yes, can be opened one-handed) because it keeps water cold for hours and even filters your water as you drink.

7. This top-rated baby carrier to keep her hands free

Because of social distancing, new moms Amato can't have visitors—which makes daily tasks difficult. Enter a baby carrier. “Since we haven’t been having anyone come over to help us or watch Jack, my Ergobaby baby carrier has been amazing for getting things done while he’s awake.
I just put it on, pop him in, and I can have both hands free to do laundry, dishes, etc.,” she says. While Amato has the Ergobaby 360 (Reviewed's third-best pick), our parenting experts prefer the Lillebaby Complete because it's extremely comfortable, supportive, and stylish.

8. A supply of diapers (since the baby shower was cancelled)

Diapers are one of the many items selling out online and at stores across the country.
And since Mom barely has time to breathe, let alone go to the store or scour the Internet, help her out by ordering a few boxes of diapers to be delivered directly to her home.
Need help finding them? Our team has been tracking diaper availability for weeks—here's where you can still buy diapers online.
9. A sleep training course so new parents can catch some shuteye

The less baby sleeps, the less Mom and Dad sleep. And right now, with so much stress and anxiety related to coronavirus, getting adequate sleep is incredibly important for both their mental and physical health. Amato says that her and her husband (and baby Jack!) have benefited greatly from taking an online sleep training course.
“Honestly, one of the most awesome gifts we've gotten was a baby sleep course from Taking Cara Babies that really helped us understand how to help Jack sleep,” she says.
“Our life has already gotten so much easier now that he's starting to sleep more consistently!” Another online option that one of Reviewed's writers loves is Owlet Dream Lab.
Gift a Taking Cara Babies sleep course for $74
9. This subscription box just for expecting and new moms

Subscription boxes are more popular than ever thanks to the fact that we're all stuck at home. And yes, there are subscription boxes that are made just for new mamas and expecting mamas a.
One of the most popular is Oh Baby (which we've also tested here at Reviewed)Each month, mamas-to-be get a stash of goodies to help make their pregnancy easier.
Then, once the baby comes, they automatically start receiving postpartum boxes with things moisturizing cream and children's books.

11. A cozy multipurpose swaddle blanket
These blankets can be used for more than just swaddling. (Photo: Aden + Anais)
Caso says that daily walks with baby Avery in the fresh air are necessary to stay sane as a new mom in quarantine. And for said walks, she's obsessed with muslin swaddle blankets.
“Not only can I wrap her up in the swaddle blankets but they're also nice to put over the car seat or stroller when out as a makeshift mask for baby,” Caso explains.
Our parenting experts love the Happiest Baby Sleepea Swaddle because it's made of 100 percent organic cotton and is very easy to use.
Get the Happiest Baby Sleepea Swaddle at Pottery Barn Kids for $27.95
12. A baby book to document their first year

While being born during the coronavirus pandemic isn't ideal, it certainly makes for a great story. Get Mom a baby book that she can fill out during her time at home to document just how crazy and unprecedented the whole experience is. When her little one is older, they'll love being able to look back on what life was those first few months of their life.

13. All the health essentials so Mom doesn't have to go out
Keep her newborn healthy with medical must-haves a thermometer. (Photo: rclassenlayouts/Getty Images/iStockphoto)
The less Mom and baby have to go out in public (even to the doctor), the better. “Our first pediatrician appointment I had to go to alone—trying to juggle a diaper bag, newborn and car seat for the first time while attempting to talk to a doctor over a screaming baby all while wearing face masks was mentally draining,” Caso says.
That's why she was so appreciative that her friends and family stocked her up with medical basics a baby thermometer, saline drops, baby Tylenol, etc. before she gave birth. Psst: Thermometers are in limited supply these days, so to help, our Reviewed team has compiled a list of where you can still buy thermometers online.
14. Bath accessories to help Mom relax

As if trying to care for a newborn or simply survive being pregnant wasn’t stressful enough, now she has to do it while stuck in quarantine (and worrying about coronavirus). So new mamas and mamas-to-be are in desperate need of some R&R. To help her kick back and relax, gift her what she needs for a luxurious bubble bath, these colorful bath bombs or this wildly popular bath soak.
