Hiking Season 2022 is Here

Hiking Season

You’ve probably already had your first shorts and short sleeves day, so you already know – spring has sprung in RVA, and hiking season has arrived! 

Central VA has some of the nicest hiking trails and parks in the whole state. You’re no doubt ready to tackle any and all of them, but before you rush out and onto the trails, make sure you’ve inspected all of your equipment.  A nice afternoon hike can turn into a miserable day if you turn an ankle, bust your boot, have ill-fitted boots that rub your feet raw, or have the wrong type of material for the environment. Learn more below!

Hiking Season’s Most Common Footwear Issues
Your Footwear is Worn Out

Hardcore hikers beware – hiking boots are meant to be consumable, meaning they are not supposed to last forever. Even Red Wing’s Hiking Boots, which always last longer than everyone else’s, aren’t immortal. Long days Continue reading

Red Wing Boot Care in the Winter

Winter Boot Care

Christmas and New Years are behind us… and since then it seems like it’s been nothing but snow! Real Richmonders with a few seasons under their belt know 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 Continue reading

Fall Hiking in Richmond

Great Fall and Winter Hikes near Richmond

We’re lucky to live in Richmond because we get to experience a genuinely beautiful fall season! The cool autumn winds have arrived and kicked out the last bits of summer. Fall is here, 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
