Red Wing Anniversary Boot – The Huntsman

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on Pinterest

2015_1Introduced in 1936, Red Wing Shoes’ popular no. 668 was marketed as “The Bird Shooter’s Boot.” The 668 debuted as one of the company’s first hunting boots and quickly became a boot of choice for long days outdoors. Over time, the 668 would eventually evolve into Red Wing’s iconic style no. 877. Red Wing Heritage is re-imaging the 668 for our company’s 110-year anniversary with the introduction of ‘the Huntsman’. Inspired by our early hunt boot designs, the Huntsman is an 8-inch lace-up leather boot built with Black Klondike leather and the same Gro-Cord sole material as the original 668. This rubber sole was an innovation at a time in which leather soles were commonplace. The Gro-Cord sole allowed sportsmen to move silently in the field. Featuring gunmetal eyelets, rawhide leather laces and the 668’s signature sole, The Huntsman pays high respects to Red Wing Shoe Company’s sportsman heritage.2015_blog

  1. Will the Red Wing Anniversary Boot “The Huntsman” be available in the states through my Red Wing Dealer in California? If so, why is it not on your website?

    Thank you,

  2. Bought a pair of these Huntsman boots yesterday and they are fabulous. Have worn them for eight hours today, walking around town for half that time, and I have had no discomfort at all. They are amazing looking boots. Red Wing really knocked it out of the park with these!

  3. What is the sizing like for this boot? I wear a size 9.5 in the 875 moc toe, and 10 in converse. What size should I order for this 668 anniversary boot?
