STYLE NO. 101 : Postman Oxford

Known as the postman’s shoe, the 101 is crafted with Black Chaparral leather, a black cushion crepe and wedge sole for extreme sturdiness, underfoot comfort and a classic look.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

In the 1950s, policemen still walked their beats and the postman walked his mail route. The hours spent on their feet called for comfortable and sturdy footwear and in 1954, Red Wing responded with style No. 101, a sturdy black oxford with a moldable insole. The shoe could be polished to meet uniform requirements, but it was tough enough for everything a policeman or mail carrier encountered on his rounds. Today the Postman is offered in a variety of color options.

Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather. Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather.

Smooth-Finished Leather

Smooth-finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather. Only the most premium, top-quality hides are used to craft smooth-finished leathers. The result is a beautiful, classic-looking leather used to build more elegant styles, such as the Red Wing Heritage Beckman Collection. The polished look and feel of the smooth-finished leather requires more specialized care and attention to keep it maintained.

A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.


The 101 is built using the No. 210 Last:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I highly recommend these shoes. It took about a week to break in the shoes, after that they are the most comfortable shoes I've owned. They've held up great for over a year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Been wearing for six months I purposely waited some time to give these shoes a proper review. I wear these shoes every single work day, Monday through Friday. These shoes are a tight on me. I had to go up in length from a 10.5 to an 11 because the pain was too much. It took a couple months before they started getting to feeling somewhat bearable. I normally wear a 10.5 EE but I guess they don't have a postman in that size. I really do wish they were a bit wider because I could've gotten my normal sized 10.5, now I'm stuck with wearing a shoe that is too long. There are some mornings where maybe my feet are a little more swollen then usual, but I go to put them in the postman shoes and they just hurt. Sometimes mid day, I stick my fist in the shoes and try to stretch them out a bit because the pain is so unbearable. I do like the look of the shoes and the quality is excellent and what you'd expect from a heritage Red Wing shoe. I have a pair of heritage 10.5 moc boots and had them stretched and they are very comfortable. I haven't had these postmans stretched yet. Maybe I should get them stretched at the store. I was hoping after six months that these shoes would have conformed to my feet, but they are still a bit too small. I only buy Red Wings for work because of their durability. Now I work in an office so I decided to buy a Red Wing shoe but if I could've done it again, I really wish I would've picked something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic shoe I have worn this shoe daily for over two years now as a police officer. These shoes take a shine and hold it. I work with other officers who have had this shoe over twenty, yes 20, years and are still wearing them with a mirror shine today. These are an investment and well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Runs small. This is a beautiful, quality shoe. But if you are accustomed to wearing Red Wing boots, go up 1/2 a size. These shoes run a lot smaller and narrower than their USA made boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoe Ever I have to chime in here, too. I also was a Mormon missionary, served in England, London South over 20 years ago. I started my mission with 2 pairs of these, and ended with the same 2. These were hands-down the greatest shoes I have ever owned. Thousands of miles walked and they held up. Finding them on this website is like seeing an old friend!! My son is leaving on his mission and he will be heading out with at least one pair of these as well. Thank you, Redwing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes that lasted for miles I wore these shoes as a Mormon missionary walking throughout Nicaragua. I walked pretty much all day, everyday. They took a few weeks to break in, but were the best shoes I have owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great oxford This shoe gives a classic look whether at work wearing slacks or with jeans going out. The shine ever wears out of this shoe. I wear the Postman 10-12 hours a day with comfort. You'll have to get a cushioned sole for some comfort.
