How to Clean your Red Wing Boots

Clean your Red Wing Boots

Wondering how to clean your Red Wing Boots? We’ve got you covered! Now that the colder season is here, your boots will start to see a lot more use (unless you plan on wearing flip-flops in the snow!) While we proudly offer complimentary, once-a-month cleaning and polishing, you may find it’s a good idea to clean your Red Wing Boots more often than that.

There are a variety of different leathers and styles, but the basic instructions for how to clean your Red Wing Boots are the same: Clean, Condition, and Protect.

Clean your Red Wing boots

Obviously, to clean your Red Wing boots, you must first get all the dirt and grime off. Remove the laces and set them aside. Next, pour some warm water or a cleaning agent on a soft/hard bristle brush or cleaner bar and gently rub your boot down. For the more soiled areas, put some Red Wing Continue reading




Red Wing Boot Care in the Winter

Winter Boot Care

Christmas and New Years are behind us… but that doesn’t mean the cold weather is. Richmonders with a few seasons under that the real cold comes in January and February.  That means just one thing as far as Red Wing Richmond is concerned: it’s time to go over our winter boot care tips!

Our customers love their Red Wing boots for countless reasons; they’re tough, they’re durable, quality-built and tested, and ruggedly handsome. Our customers know that a pair of Red Wings says something about the person wearing it. However, one thing sticks out more than the rest, at least this time of the year – almost every pair of Red Wings will keep your feet warm and dry during winter weather while providing excellent traction on the icy and slick surfaces you’ll experience throughout Richmond this winter.

While Richmond winters are usually pretty mild in comparison to some places, that doesn’t Continue reading

THE MARINES COLLECT OUR TOYS DECEMBER 15th
DONATE BEFORE THEN!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Red Wing Richmond! It’s been quite a year, to say the least… but come hell or high water, you better believe we’re still doing our yearly Toys for Tots drive!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and we wouldn’t blame you!) you know that the pandemic has caused massive layoffs to working families in Richmond and all over the country. There will be more kids than ever at risk of not having a toy under the tree this year. We need to help them!

Stay Warm While You’re Working!

Stay warm

Winter will be here before you know it, and it’s time to prepare! Richmond’s not in the arctic, but it still gets cold enough to cause discomfort and potentially injury… especially with prolonged exposure to the elements. For many people, staying warm is easy… They just stay inside! For others, it’s not that simple. 

For those of you who work outside whether it’s spring, summer, fall, or winter, you need to learn how to stay warm in the cold weather. Here are the basics:

Layer up!
Wear thicker, warmer materials (wool socks, etc)
Wear insulated boots and jackets
Cover exposed skin
Stay dry
Use warmers when you get uncomfortable!

Red Wing Shoes has you covered on some of these – particularly the insulated boots and merino wool socks. However, to make sure you’re staying warm, you gotta pay attention to the rest of the basics too.

But don’t just take it from us… hear some advice from fellow Richmonders Continue reading

Fall Hiking in Richmond

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
