The Men's Postman Chukka

The Postman Chukka was first built by Red Wing in 1954. The chukka was standard issue, government-approved footwear for mail carriers and police officers for decades. Today, it is beloved for a unique, yet minimal style that stands out as a genuine throwback. The modern boot is still made with fully resoleable Goodyear welt construction, with a Black Cushion Crepe Wedge outsole and “sweat-proof” leather insole for comfort that lasts all day.
