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.

STYLE NO. 101 : Postman Oxford

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:

  • Was designed for increased flexibility and lighter duty work
  • Most 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent shoe from Red Wing Heritage I will say that initially the shoe felt great. Then it after a wear or two it definitely needed to go through a break-in period. That has lasted about 4 months. They are now everyday shoes and are easily my go to shoes. Very happy with the overall quality and craftsmanship. The all leather footbed is broken in and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great pair of Red Wing Shoes Every time I buy a pair of Red Wing shoes it reaffirms you get what you pay for. 3108 is both good looking and well built. Take a trip to the red wing store in red wing MN they have all products on display and are great help.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but stiff I love these shoes, but they took months to break in enough to be wearable for a full day. The leather is so thick/stiff that I had to wear two pairs of socks for the first three months of daily wear. Still not really comfortable, but bearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is why I buy Red Wing I have been through many pairs of dress shoes since my first foray into the car business. Lots of standing and walking and needing to dress casual to suited on special event days. I have burned through 3 pairs of $100 dress shoes in the last year alone. NO MORE. I have a pair of Iron Rangers and 877s that I've owned over 5 years in rain, snow, salt, mud and they still perform wonderfully. I figured "Why not try a pair of oxfords for daily use." These 101s have far exceeded my expectations in under a few weeks and I'm sure they will continue to stand the test of time and live up to the name in quality. THANK YOU Red Wing!

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 This is a great handsome shoe for walking and working. I'm an artist, I use my shoes really hard in the shop and I walk a lot but still want a stylish shoe. This is the one. Breaks in real nice after a week or so, still looks good after a season of rain in Paris and mud back home on my parent's farm.

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.
