For over 100 years, Red Wing boots have been built with construction techniques that transform premium materials into
supremely durable boots and shoes. Each pair is made with tremendous detail, across every step needed to make a Red Wing
boot. Turning premium leather into the best footwear is a complex and involved process. At Red Wing, we do that through
a unique combination of advanced technology and handmade craftsmanship. From finishing leather hides through packing and
putting boots in boxes to ship, we take absolute pride in building the best there is.
We begin by carefully preparing, coloring and finishing our leather hides at S.B. Foot Tannery, owned and managed by Red Wing.
