The 8146 Roughneck is the style from the Moc Toe collection for outdoor lovers. It is the only Moc Toe Style with the Vibram Lug sole with a coarse profile. Whether hiking in the woods or in the city, this shoe guarantees optimum grip and dry feet. Then as now, this style is appreciated for its looks and robustness, especially in particularly harsh weather conditions. The dark brown Briar Oil Slick leather, tanned in the company's own S.B. Foot Tannery, can easily be combined with any outfit and should not be missing in any shoe cabinet. This predominantly handcrafted boat stands for the high standard of durability typical of Red Wing. If you don't like this colour or the sole is a bit too rough, we offer the Moc Toe in a particularly wide range of colours and with the white, cold insulating Traction Tred sole.

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 well cared for ex works. Please proceed as follows:
1. Remove superficial dirt with a damp cloth or brush in combination with the Foam Cleaner.
2. We recommend Boot Oil for economical application & incorporation.
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.
Especially in the winter months it is recommended to take care of your shoes preventively to protect the leather from snow, dirt and road salt.
