A small spot in the bend of the Mississippi River is inhabited by the Indian tribe Lutasha until 1857. The Lutasha chief gives his name to the village: Red Wing. The young German, Charles Beckmann, worked in a tannery, but soon he was to create great things. Driven by his passion for handicraft work with leather, he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company in 1905. His idea: hard-wearing, robust, durable boots for the workers in the emerging industry of the 1930s. Number 650 was born, the 16 inch shoe for track attendants, a high calfskin boot that is still part of the product line today. The designs for numbers 2268 and 915, the engineering boot and the boat for oil workers also date from this period. Quality proves itself. In the 1950s, the 'Irish Setter' was introduced as a style that became an integral part of American workwear. And the legendary number 888, the 'Super Setter', combines the highest quality materials from all over the world: Underleather from Australia, upper leather from Scotland, shoe flaps from England, laces from Germany, Norwegian waterproof edge seams and Swiss soles. Anyone who has ever visited the Red Wing factory will understand why these boots are not just boots, but a piece of the wearer's identity. This shoe is made to stay - "built to fit, built to last". Because in the more than 200 stations at Red Wing, every movement is carried out with the utmost precision. The employees, who sew by hand in the old-fashioned way and check every inch of the leather from their own tannery, put so much passion into every single boot that you can feel it when you wear them. Maximum wearing comfort is guaranteed by an optimal fit. Through consistency and commitment to customer needs, Red Wing has created a product that has evolved over 100 years from a worker's shoe to the favourite footwear of many people around the world.
Red Wing Shoes
Mit den Klamotten ist es manchmal wie mit der eigenen Haut. Es gibt einfach Teile, die sind wie an einem festgewachsen, sind ein Teil des Körpers geworden.
Zum Beispiel: Stiefel. Die haben oft schon so viel mit einem erlebt, tragen Lebens-Geschichte eingegerbt im Leder, den Angstschweiß genauso wie die besten Momente. Jeder Tag hat hier seine Spuren hinterlassen, jedes Moped, jeder Trip, jeder Typ, über all die Jahre.
