Great Fall Hikes near Richmond
We’re lucky to live in Richmond because we get to experience a genuinely beautiful fall season! In the coming weeks, the cool autumn wind will kick out the muggy remnants of summer. Fall will arrive, and with fall comes fall hikes!
Red Wing of Richmond has experienced many seasonal turns here, and we think fall is truly special. Some cities are locked in urban sprawl, all concrete, pavement, and steel, making it easy to lose track of changes in nature. Richmond, on the other hand, is dotted with natural beauty that just explodes in vibrant color this time of year.
Maybe your morning commute takes you over the James River, and you get to see broad swathes of trees changing colors in the distance. Or maybe a cool, damp breeze blows a handful of brightly-colored leaves onto your work site. You see these little fall reminders, and they’re Continue reading
As you most likely already know, the State of Virginia has passed a law that requires you to pay sales tax on most items purchased online. That means whether you buy your Red Wings online or at the store, you’ll have to pay that extra 4.3%. You may be unhappy about this, but there is some upside for you. Here’s what we mean!
The Advantages to Shopping Local
We Know Richmond
Red Wing Richmond is locally owned, small, family business that carries a national brand. We know Richmond, we know the state laws, compliance requirements, and weather conditions. That means you’ll get the right boot recommendation the first time – no guesswork.
Our dedication to service persists well after you buy your boots. We pride ourselves in service after the sale, and that means if you have questions or you can just stop by one of our 3 local stores and talk to us.

When you hear the name Red Wing Shoes, what immediately comes to mind is quality. Durability. Dependability. We agree with all of those! However, we’ve got another word we want you to think of this summer when you Red Wing comes to mind: Versatility!

Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16th…. write that down!) is coming soon, and it has us thinking about our old man, and how he always had the best advice. One thing that our dad (a shoe guy) taught us was to always invest extra in the stuff that keeps you off the ground – your bed, your tires, your furniture, and your boots… and therefore your socks!
Thanks for the advice Dad… we took it to heart! We know how important it is to be prepared… and now we want to help other folks prove it by stocking up on our socks with two great deals!
From May 17th to May 31st
Buy a $150 gift card to one of our 3 Richmond Area stores, (would make a GREAT Father’s day gift… we’re just saying!) and we’ll throw in a six-pack of Red Wing socks (a $50 value), for free.
From June 1st to June Continue reading
