- Order number: 8044-EbonyHarness.11
The elegant Red Wing Merchant collection was successfully launched in August 2016. The Merchant was inspired by the classic worker's boot of the 1920s and can score points above all for high comfort. Now this popular shoe is finally available as a low shoe. Just like its counterpart (the 8061), the 8044 is made of the special Ebony Harness Leather, which is used exclusively for the Merchant series. Already since 1964 the black Chemigum sole of Red Wing is used, which is also used here and was combined with the last no. 8. Due to the missing toe cap, this shoe is much easier to wear than conventional models. A very comfortable and elegant shoe that is easy to combine with different styles of trousers.

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 treated ex works. Please proceed as follows:
1. Remove superficial dirt with a damp cotton cloth or a shoe brush.
2. We recommend Mink Oil for economical application and treatment. It is recommended to use the Red Wing shoe brush.
3. Let your boots rest for a few hours and dry so that the treatment is absorbed.
4. We recommend to seal the leather with our leather protection.
5. You can also polish your shoes with our polishing cloth.
Especially during the unpleasant winter months, we recommend that you treat your boots beforehand to protect the leather from snow, dirt and road salt.
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.
