About Red Wing

AboutExcellence is a standard which transcends the test of time. For over a century, Red Wing purpose-built footwear has been at the spearhead of innovation in the standard of excellence for work boots. For three generations, the Gardner family has lived, worked, breathed, and dreamed about Red Wing Shoes, right here in Central Virginia.

About Red Wing Shoes

Around the turn of the 19th century a Red Wing, MN shoe merchant named Charles Beckman saw a local necessity for shoes specifically designed for the demanding work of industries such as mining, logging and farming. The rigors of these jobs required footwear which was tough enough to outlast harsh working conditions. Beckman envisioned a shoe that could protect these workers. However, he didn’t want to stop there! He wanted his boots to be extremely comfortable for the hardworking people who wore them.

From Humble Beginnings to Worldwide Prominence

Beckman set out to develop work boots to fill this need. In 1905, he and fourteen investors opened a company that would change the market. Beckman named his company Red Wing Shoes, and thus a new standard for excellence was born.

Over a hundred years have passed since our founding. However, our commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear remains as unwavering as Beckman’s vision. Our products consistently perform in environments spanning from the Mideast oil fields to the Midwest corn fields. Red Wing boots protect workers in more than one hundred countries across the world, an accomplishment built by years of hard work, endurance and the promise to never compromise on our quality.

Never Compromise

A testament to that promise can be found in our Heritage collection which is made up of footwear that represents the American ideals of prosperous work and excellence. All the styles in the Heritage collection are designed and built just as they were fifty, sixty and even over eighty years ago and are all made using premium Red Wing Shoe Company leather from our very own S.B. Foot Tannery. They are handcrafted to the specifications which made each style timeless when they were first introduced.

Red Wing products are proven to perform and outlast. Behind each pair of shoes exists over a century of experience. So whether you are buying footwear, garments or accessories, rest assured that the Red Wing logo stands for a standard in excellence like no other.

At Red Wing Shoes, work is our work!

    Red Wings boots are strong and durable, I have wide feet that's sensitive and hurt if anything it off a bit with the boots I wear, I tried few different pairs that I really like how they look, I wasn't satisfied with the boots that I really wanted because the sales rep didn't get the correct width for my feet, the next sales rep went the extra miles to order and get the right size and fit for me.read more

    I had a pair of loggers that needed repair. The store informed me of the estimated time it would take to get this done. However the factory and corporate does not update the stores on the status of the boots and leaves it completely up to the stores to take the fall for the customer not receiving updates on the status. I was in contact with Dee Green at the Midlothian store over several weeks and she tried her best to make sure that I had the most accurate information available. However the actual status and delays from the factory were completely outside of her control. Nevertheless she did everything she possibly could have done to make things right for me and I ended up getting a store credit for my boots. She is an outstanding representative of the company and should be given high honors for her dedication to customer service and over the top efforts to make sure the customer is satisfied with what services they offer. The corporate office completely left it up to her to deal with any issues or concerns I had and even blamed the store for not providing me with accurate information. Mrs Green went above and beyond her duties to make sure everything was 100% satisfactory on her end and the company should be proud to have such an employee at their disposal. I was able to get into two new pairs of boots and couldn’t be more satisfied with the dedication to customer service that Mrs Green provided. Well done ma’am I tip my hat to you and your dedication to the American working standards of quality and devoted service to customers that so many companies and employees lack this day and age. A true stand out employee for this company. I could only give a 5 star rating because 10 is not an option. Travisread more

    Best brand of work boots hands down. The support is also awesome! Took in my boots that are 3 years old and the eyes are wore out they where able to replace them all and get me right back on my feet and back to work. Their boots last forever. Ask for the ones that the soles can be redone way down the road when you wear your soles out. I'm very rough on my boots working in Landscaping and 3 years in and still going very strong. Buy 2 pairs if you can and rotate every other day.read more

    Red wing definitely makes the best work boots but this is now my favorite store. The selection and the employees are a lot better than the Brook Rd. retailer. I definitely recommend coming here if you need quality safety toe shoes!read more
