Established by Charles H. Beckmann in 1905 in the quiet river town of Red Wing, MN, The Red Wing Shoes Company initially produced boots for soldiers and workers on farms, in oil fields and factories - or generally they produced high-quality and tough working boots. The Company soon developed a reputation for making tough and comfortable boots for tough and hard-working people. Only finest quality leather is used and every inch is thoroughly inspected. Nowadays the boots and shoes are both - workwear and fashion. Red Wing Shoes is now a much beloved company, still producing beautiful boots and shoes.
