STYLE NO. 8062 : Merchant

The historical work boot most similar to the Merchant is style 245 from 1920, which was made without a toe-box, but instead featured a plain toe and raw cut at the quarter edge. The Merchant is built on the 8 last, which is also used for the Blacksmith. But because of the missing toe-box, the Merchant has a slimmer look and a lower toe profile than the Blacksmith. Sole: The Merchant is built on a Chemi Gum sole, which Red Wing has been using for work boots since 1964 and is now introducing in the Heritage line. Featuring a lower cork content than the Nitrile Cork sole. The Chemi Gum sole creates a clean, slim, and lightweight boot.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

In 1905, when Charles Beckman couldn’t find boots to wear in Red Wing’s muddy streets that matched his merchant status, he decided to start his own shoe company. Named after Beckman himself, the Beckman Collection features classic, sturdy shoes with timeless character.

Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery. Roughout leather is a reverse suede leather made in our S.B. Foot tannery.

Roughout Leather

Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.

STYLE NO. 8062 : Merchant

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 8062 is built using the No. 8 Last:

  • Many customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit
  • Features a bump toe for more room up-front
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

Red Wing's sturdy soles, premium leathers, triple stitching and Goodyear welt construction all work together to make quality boots that will last a lifetime. It takes more than 230 steps to hand craft each pair of Red Wing Shoes but it only takes three steps to keep them clean, conditioned and protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Legendary New Style The Merchant 8061 is an all-season lightweight boot, compared to its heavier 6" counterparts. A narrower silhouette fits the ankle nicely, with the absence of a toe box allowing an instantly comfortable fit that one would find on a desert boot; as the upper is shaped closer to a chukka, than a traditional work boot. I have owned my Beckman 9011s for over four years, and its lug sole, toe box, and heavy construction contrasts the more streamlined Merchant 8061; the Ebony Harness leather is a beautiful dark chocolate color that will age wonderfully, and the boot is constructed with the same craftsmanship and care that you will find on any Red Wing Heritage footwear. I am extremely pleased, and expect to wear these boots for a long time. For sizing, I am a Brannock 10D, and sized down to a 9.5D with this particular boot, resulting in a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from casual, tough boot I am a week into these boots. They are still breaking me in, but I have full confidence in their durability and reliability. I have worn the redwing moc toe (875) for four years and wear a size 10. Since I wear these boots to the office with dress socks, I got size 9.5 and they fit perfectly. I am already getting a lot of complements. I especially love the low toe volume compared to the iron ranger and beckman.
