The Roughneck

The Roughneck was born from a boot first made for oil rig workers in the mid-20th century. Rig workers, nicknamed "Roughnecks," were known for their notoriously dangerous work. Built upon their legacy, the 6-inch durable leather provided support and protection, and the aggressive lugged Vibram® outsole offered grip on any surface. In addition, the boot is built with long-lasting Puritan triple-stitch construction and a Goodyear welt, making it fully resoleable for years of reliable wear.

FIT INFORMATION

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage footwear should fit comfortably tight on the foot, with enough room to freely wiggle toes. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.

NO. 23 LAST

  • The no. 23 last was created in the 1950s and is Red Wing’s most iconic.
  • Includes extra room in the forefoot and instep to fit a variety of foot shapes.

Care

Oil-Tanned Leather Care

Cleaning Boot Illustration

1. Clean

Use warm water and a brush to remove dirt from footwear. Dry with a cloth. For heavily soiled areas, apply Foam Leather Cleaner with a cloth or brush. Wipe cleaner away with a damp cloth and allow leather to dry.

Condition Boot Illustration

2. Condition

Apply a light, even coat of All Natural Boot Oil, Mink Oil, or All Natural Leather Conditioner to leather with fingers, cloth, or sponge. Proper conditioning keeps leather healthy and extends the life of footwear.

Protect Boot Illustration

3. Protect

Lightly mist footwear with Leather Protector six to eight inches away from the leather in a sweeping motion. Leather Protector provides a shield against dirt and moisture. It will not darken footwear.
