For more than 110 years Red Wing Shoes have been making purpose-built work boots that are meant to last. Founded in Red Wing, Minnesota and specifically designed for the harsh and demanding labour in the local mining, logging and farming industries, the brand has been setting the standard for heavy-duty footwear since 1905. As a result of this impressive track record and Red Wing's rich heritage, a lot of motorcyclists have come to rely on the brand. While there's boots out there more suitable for long, high-speed journeys, Red Wing boots have proven to be more than sturdy enough to function as an absolutely beautiful boot for inner-city and leisurely riding. And that's speaking from personal experience.
