STYLE NO. 9438 : Williston Chelsea

The 9438 Williston Chelsea is made with Black Featherstone leather finished with high luster at our SB Foot Tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota. Slip-on construction with twin gore siding delivers laceless comfort with classic Chelsea style. The 9438’s premium Gro-Cord outsole, most recently exclusive to the Japanese market, adds durability with a Vibram forepart heel and tap on a leather sole bend.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

Red Wing’s legacy of dress footwear stretches back nearly a century. The Williston is born out of archival inspiration from formal boots that were first produced in Red Wing in the '20s and '30s. The Gro-Cord outsole that the 6-inch Williston is built on has a rich history of its own, adding industry-leading durability to dress boots first appearing on Red Wing dress boots in the 1920s.

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. 9438 : Williston Chelsea

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 9438 is built using the No. 220 Last:

  • A true-fit dress last created specifically for the Williston
  • Based off of our iconic 210 Postman last but with a less tapered, thinned out toe profile
  • A thinner sock will make for a comfortable fit, true to size
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes

PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT
