- Order number: 875-Oro-Legacy.7.5
The 875 and 877 are an icon in the history of the Red Wing Shoe Company. The quality and versatility of their designs have outlasted these hard-working boots, giving them a unique history that has taken them from America's workplaces and fields to worldwide recognition. The 877 was originally introduced in the Autumn 1952 catalogue, the 875 followed shortly thereafter in 1953. The boots were originally designed as part of the Red Wing Irish Setter collection and the orange-red colour was, suitably, a direct reference to the coat of the Irish Setter dog, making them immediately popular with hunters in the USA. Followed by hunters, the boot became popular with builders and farmers alike. Today the 877 and 877 are two of the oldest Red Wing styles and bestsellers.

A small spot, in the bend of the Mississippi, is inhabited until 1857 by the Indian tribe Lutasha. The Lutasha chief lends 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 craftsmanship with leather, he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company in 1905. His idea: hard-wearing, robust, durable boots for the workers of the up-and-coming industry of the 1930s. The number 650, the 16-inch shoe for trackmen, a high calfskin boot, was created and is still included in the product line today. Also the designs for the numbers 2268 and 915, the engineering boot and the boat for oil workers originate from this time. Quality proves itself. In the 1950s, the Irish Setter was introduced, a style that became an integral part of American workwear. And the legendary number 888, the 'Super Setter', unites the highest quality materials from all over the world: under leather from Australia, upper leather from Scotland, shoe flaps from England, shoelaces from Germany, Norwegian waterproof seams and Swiss soles. Anyone who has ever been to the Red Wing factory understands why these boots are not just boots, but a piece of the identity of their wearer. 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 greatest precision. The employees, who sew by hand after old school and check every centimeter of the leather from their own tannery, put so much passion into each individual boot that you can feel it when wearing it. Highest wearing comfort is guaranteed by an optimal fit. Red Wing has created a product through consistency and commitment to meet the needs of its customers that has evolved over 100 years from work shoes to the favourite footwear of many people around the world.
All Red Wings are already maintained ex works. Please proceed as follows:
1. Remove superficial dirt with a damp cloth or a brush.
2. We recommend the Boot Oil for economical application & incorporation. The use of a brush is recommended.
3. Leave your boots to stand for a few hours so that the care product can penetrate the leather.
4. To seal the leather we recommend the Leather Protector.
5. You can polish your shoes with the Red Wing polishing cloth.

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.
