How to Clean your Red Wing Boots in the Winter

Clean your Red Wing Boots

Winter is here and if you’re wondering how to clean your Red Wing Boots… we’ve got you covered! With colder weather comes harsher conditions, and 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 Continue reading

Stay Warm While You’re Working!

Winter is here! 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 below!

Tips and Tricks for Staying Warm, From Richmonders!

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. That’s why we offer the Ultimate Fit Experience at all 3 of our Richmond area stores.

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 Continue reading
