In-Store Safety Protocol

Safety

A few weeks ago, we outlined exactly how we planned to keep our industrial clients safe and healthy during their visits to the mobile shoe store. Now that we’ve opened up all 3 of our retail locations to walk in traffic, we want you to know that safety comes first there, too!

On top of following the CDC guidelines, we’ve taken it a step further! We’ve partnered with Chem Dry Of Richmond, and had their team apply their ViroDefenders treatment to our Red Wing Richmond and Charlottesville stores, and our mobile shoe trucks. We will continue these treatments every 90 days for at least the next year. This treatment has a proprietary molecular bond, that includes a “nano shield” that protects all surfaces from virus penetration for at least 90 days and kills 99.99% of any germs.

We are not by any means guaranteeing anything. Just know that we are investing heavily in the Continue reading




Mobile Shoe Truck 10 Point Safety Protocol

We hope everyone’s doing well! While it’s not quite business as usual yet, we are coming closer and closer to that point every day. In fact, after a few months hiatus, we’re now able to resume our mobile shoe truck operations. That means we’re now able to bring Red Wing to your job site for on the spot service!

However, because the safety of our customers and staff continues to be our number one priority, we’ve implemented a number of changes in our mobile shoe truck on-site procedures. 

Safety Comes First on our Mobile Shoe Truck

We are adhering to all of the CDC’s recommendations for safety during this crazy time. More specifically:

We are limiting the amount of customers on the truck to 1 at a time.
Our drivers will be wearing masks and gloves.
An outside seating area will be provided, with seats 6 feet apart in accordance with social distancing guidelines 
Display shoes are Continue reading




Get The Right Fit!

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!

All our employees at Continue reading




Stay Warm While You’re Working!

Stay warm

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:

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 Continue reading




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

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
