Better With Age

Red Wing Heritage footwear is hand built to last for years and even decades. Beyond long-lasting durability, each American-made style develops a personalized fit and beautiful leather patina over time. As boots and shoes are worn and cared for, footwear molds to feet and the leather tells the unique story of where it has been.

HERITAGE LASTS

Our footwear is built using last construction for superior fit. A last is a foot-shaped piece of plastic that the leather upper is pulled over before the boot or shoe is welted or stitched down into its final form. Many of our lasts originated in the 1950s and have been updated over the years.
