Red Wing @ S.O.S

For more than a century, Red Wing Shoe Company has built a reputation for making tough, comfortable footwear for hard working North Americans. Today, Red Wing Heritage boots and shoes are still crafted with skill by craftsmen who take the time to make sure each pair lasts and protects. Premium Red Wing Shoes leather, tanned at their own S.B Foot Tanning Company, is triple stitched with waxed thread for quality. Combined with their signature Traction Tred white crepe outsole, their Heritage boots continue to build on the legend.

Recognised as the product that elevated the Red Wing brand to worldwide renown, the 877 was made of russet coloured leather, tanned by using the sap of sequoia bark. The process yielded a rich colour that was very close to the coat of an Irish Setter hunting dog. They became an overnight sensation. These boots provided excellent arch support and had a light cushion crepe sole. Together with the 875, these two styles became Red Wing's most widely recognized boots.
