They're still hot off the tanner, but these new boots, chukkas and oxfords leave an undeniable impression of heritage due to that Red Wing leather, which makes for a famously sturdy shoe and develops a beautiful patina overtime.
These new models in particular speak to Red Wing's reputation for superlative American craftsmanship. It takes over 230 steps to assemble them in Red Wing's Minnesota factory, where as many as 100 craftsmen draw from over 100 years of the company's time-honored techniques.

Here's a revival from a 2007 J.Crew collaboration with Red Wing. Built in a workboot style, with comfortable Vibram® lug soles and with Red Wing's iconic red-tinged brown leather, what's not to love?
These boots are crafted in a classic chukka silhouette and are sewn together with a Goodyear welt so you know they'll hold up for years.
Inspired by the boots miners wore in the 19th century, these "ranger boots"—built with a double layer of leather over the toe and Vibram rubber outsoles—are as sturdy as they come.
These oxfords are lighter and less brawny than the other options, but they're no less resilient with Vibram rubber outsoles and the same Goodyear welt construction.
Playing to both J.Crew and Red Wing's bent for all-American menswear, these black boots are inspired by the footwear cotton rovers donned while operating 20th century mills. And you know what? You can put these through the mill, and they'll still last basically forever.
