STYLE NO. 8062 : Merchant

The Merchant dates back to the earliest years of Red Wing Shoe Company. It’s a favorite today, as it was then, thanks to a sleek low toe that lends itself to a night out, and a grippy outsole that’s ready when the weather turns.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

When Red Wing Shoe Company was founded in 1905, streets were still muddy, travel was still largely by train or horse-drawn and daily life a little more demanding. So footwear had to be versatile—even a shop owner or banker needed shoes that could keep feet safe and dry but brush off and look good while doing business. The Merchant is a direct descendant of those earliest boots we made, like the style 245 from 1920.

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.
