STYLE NO. 9196 : Postman Chukka

The Postman Chukka molds the unique leather and outsole pairing of the Postman Oxford into a distinctive all-black Chukka silhouette. They’ll see old school style, you’ll feel cushioned comfort that lasts all day.

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE

In the 1950s, policemen still walked their beats and the postman walked his mail route. The hours spent on their feet called for comfortable and sturdy footwear and in 1954, Red Wing responded with style No. 101, a sturdy black oxford with a moldable insole. The shoe could be polished to meet uniform requirements, but it was tough enough for everything a policeman or mail carrier encountered on his rounds.

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. 9196 : Postman Chukka

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 9196 is built using the No. 210 Last:

  • Was designed for increased flexibility and lighter duty work
  • Most customers buy Red Wing Heritage footwear 1/2 size smaller than their normal size
  • Trying on Red Wing Heritage footwear in a store is recommended to get the perfect fit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the construction of this Chukka-9196, but need to make a EE instead of a D size. I believe Red Wing builds a very good product. This is my second pair of shoes/ work boots. I like this Chucka, 9196. but needs to be in a double EE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other shoe is as comfortable as this Redwing brand I work for united parcel service. I am on my feet 8+ hours a day all week. These Postman shoes are by far the most comfortable shoes for my work I have ever had. I am working on my 3rd pair in four years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Craftsmanship, and a substantial shoe, from bygone times I wanted a nice looking shoe for work and dressy occasions that has the quality and durability of a Red Wing, is good for serious walking, and has some ankle support. This shoe scores on all dimensions, as you would expect of a shoe designed for mail carriers. If you're used to either soft, willowy comfort shoes or heavy work boots, you'll find this to be a different animal. They seem rather stiff and formidable at first -- the salesman almost wanted to talk me out of them -- but they're familiar to an old guy, who as a kid wore similar leather shoes, or to anyone who's worn standard military dress shoes. The leather is quite fine, with the inner layer as much a work of art as the outer. After two one-hour walks, these were pretty much broken in (the tongue of one wore down my skin initially). Now that I've been able to wear them more often, I find them quite comfortable and substantial feeling. The sole is good for walking on a variety of surfaces. The width is as specified, but it would be nice to have wide options, rather than just regular width. Overall, an excellent investment in footwear!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redwing please make in an E width Hello redwing this is more of a request than a review for you guys to consider making this shoe in an E width due to the fact that im a mailman and my feet have widened due to all the walking i do so no longer fit in the standard D width so please consider since i would love to use my uniform allowance on this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from built to last, more beautiful over time have been wearing my postman specials for five years and just contacting RW to get them refurbished. The only thing that needs to be replaced is the sole, the rest of the shoe is in fantastic condition. I'm confident they will last another five years, and at this point I just love these to death. Not gonna lie, they are a hard break in, but now they are like part of my foot. Just love things like this that are built for the long-haul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable show that shines up AMAZINGLY These shoes were my second choice. I wanted the Policeman Boot (9197) but could not find any. I got these and they are one of the most comfortable shoes I've worn. Break in took 1 month but it was worth it. I wear them 5 days/week, 8-10 hours/day, and hate to take them off at the end of my shift. They polish like no other shoe I have owned. Look like patent leather when shined.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I have a pair of chukka boots but they are just too narrow Really wish the heritage line came in EE! I’d buy soooo many boots from this line

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looks, good fit and very comfortable Needed something to wear while working trade shows, which is hours of standing. I also have plantar fasciitis so I needed something my insoles would work with. These shoes work perfect. Only thing I have bad to say is the laces are thin, so I replaced them with a nice waxed cotton lace. These shoes look great with everything from jeans to khakis to slacks. Oh and they take a great shine!
