The Classic SuperSole is a limited release that revives a legendary boot from the Red Wing archives. The boot is built on the same last as the original from 1981, with the addition of gunmetal hooks and eyelets for a striking style update.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Built as a work boot, the SuperSole has remained in the Red Wing work line since its debut. This reissue is built as an everyday boot using premium Heritage leather and without the steel toe of the work boot.
Oil Tanned leather is a very durable and vivid leather.
S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for oil-tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing’s 108+ year history.
Copper Rough & Tough Leather
Dark Gun Metal Eyelets & Hooks
In order to build a Red Wing boot to an exact size and width, the boot is constructed around a shoe last.
STYLE NO. 8801 : Classic SuperSole
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 8801 is built using the No. 326 Last:
Last number 326 was designed for a snug fit both in length and in width
Designed for people with higher arches
Provides a secure fit in the toe and heel area with support in the mid-foot

Red Wing Shoes’ 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 handcraft each pair of Red Wing Shoes but it only takes three steps to keep them clean, conditioned and protected.

Superb craftsmanship.What you see in the photos is essentially what you get. What stands out to me in these boots when compared to my copper 1907’s and Iron Rangers is the attention to quality. The leather has more luster to it. The cut somehow seems more precise. The stitching is entirely flawless. The attention to detail is quite impressive.
The fit is true to size for a D-width and slightly long although I would not recommend sizing down. There is a thin leather footbed which is not removable. The last has arch support built into it. This makes it tricky to add an insole without being overkill. I found that the flat leather insert from my 1907’s works well enough to improve fit. I also tried the comfort force insert from my 2406’s and found it was too much.
The Supersole is what really sets these apart in the heritage line. From above, it looks like the rubber padding you see on bumper cars at the carnival. It means you could actually wear this as a functional work boot. At the very least it means protection for the upper, and that with decent care these boots should have a very long life ahead.

Great productI am really liking these boots so far, I received them a few days ago and have pretty much fell in love. I really like the moc to toes with the SuperSole, very comfortable and the break in process isn’t painful at all in just regular cotton socks, they have a foamy insole and this seems to improve comfort for me. I usually wear an 11 B/C width and I ordered these in a 10.5 D, they fit very well. I like the padded collar and of course the Copper Rough and Tough leather is awesome! I usually order a half size down in heritage footwear and that works pretty well for me. I hope this product stays available and more sole options become available in the heritage line! Thank you Red Wing for always delivering and making these products in the USA!

Great moc toesI was lucky enough to land a pair of these. I love the other red wing moc toes, but I’ve never been a fan of the wedge soles, especially the white ones. Very glad red wing decided to make a moc toe with the super sole. These are made on a different last than the other moc toes. I feel these fit more true to size. I prefer the cushiony insole to these as well compared the usual heritage harder insole. Great job overall.
