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

Sales Tax

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 Special

Father's Day

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
