Red Wing Richmond: A Local Business

Richmond Original

If you’ve been to any of our 3 Richmond area locations, you know that we’re a bit different than most chain shoe stores… and that’s something we’re proud of! What you might not know, though, is that we are a LOCAL business! Of course, Red Wing shoes is global brand, and for good reason… our boots are the best in the world. However, our Richmond stores are owned and operated by local Richmonders, and have been for decades. 

What Makes Us Different

You can get excellent service from any Red Wing Shoes store you visit. However, we take it a step further. Our dedication to service after the sale is unmatched. For example:

We have a 30-day service program that helps you protect your investment
We have monthly specials that often correspond with what’s going on with Richmond at the time (IE Vasque Boot sales when the weather warms up and people start hitting Continue reading

The CATEC Sign-To-Work Event featuring Red Wing Charlottesville

Recently, the Charlottesville Albemarle Technical Education Center (CATEC) graduated a class of hard workers, and our sister store in Charlottesville was on-site, handing out gift cards! You can read the whole story on the Red Wing Charlottesville blog… but suffice to say, we’re proud of our role in helping out the next generation of workers. See below for a quick overview!

News Coverage of the CATEC Graduation Event

Red Wing Shoes provided $150 gift certificates for work-certified shoes. Building and Electric trades students received toolbelts from Diamondback Toolbelts.

CATEC Director Stephanie Carter said it’s all part of the school’s mission to see students succeed when they leave the classroom. 

“It’s our goal really to strengthen our students individual pipelines and preparing them so they leave us ready to go out and meet all their career goals,” she said.

Back to Normal!


It’s been a long and tough haul, but we are happy to finally be at the finish line. Effective immediately, Red Wing Richmond is thrilled to report that, in accordance with the guidance of the CDC and Virginia state guidelines, we are suspending the majority of our COVID mask and capacity-limiting protocols at all 3 of our Richmond area locations and our sister store in Charlottesville. Things are finally back to normal!

What this means for you

Long story short, we will no longer require mask-wearing or have capacity limits at any of our stores. You are certainly more than welcome to wear a mask if you’d like, and we will still encourage social distancing within the store. Additionally, we will still be observing  heightened cleaning protocols.

We will still offer to-your-door shipping from all stores. However, our virtual fitting program will no longer be offered. 

As always, we recommend customers come into the 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

Stay Warm While You’re Working!

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

In-Store Safety Protocol


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
