If you want maximum comfort from your boot, getting the right fit for your work boots (or any boots/shoes for that matter) is an absolutely essential first step.
If you’re like most folks, you were sized and fitted for shoes at some point in your life, but most likely that was many years prior to today. Just like your waistline, your feet can actually change over time. Our point? You should never assume you know exactly the right size in any footwear!
Get the Perfect Fit in the Perfect Boot
Everyone’s feet are different. Most brand’s sizing is different. Furthermore, some shoes within the same brand might have a different fit! With so much variation, it’s crucial that you get properly fitted by a professional for each and every pair of boots you buy. When it comes to proper-fitting footwear, there is no such thing as one size fits all!

We’re in the heart of winter, and it’s cold out there! We know – we’re not in the arctic circle or anything! However, it still gets cold enough here in Richmond 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:
Wear thicker, warmer materials (wool socks, etc)
Wear insulated boots and jackets
Cover exposed skin
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 Continue reading
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
THE MARINES COLLECT OUR TOYS DECEMBER 15th – DONATE BEFORE THEN!
Happy Holidays from all of us at Red Wing Richmond! It’s been a great year at all 3 of our Richmond area locations, and it’s all thanks to the wonderful folks throughout Central Virginia. You guys are the reason why we got into this business, and the reason why we stay in business! Saying thanks just doesn’t quite cut its, and you should know by that Red Wing is about more than just talking the talk.

The Marine Toys For Tots Program

Fall is here, officially, and if it’s like most RVA autumns, it won’t be around long. Richmonders with a few seasons under their belt know that the cold winds of winter 2019 are on the way. 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 Continue reading
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.

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
