|Red Wing Shoes specializes in producing durable boots. Founded in Minnesota in 1905 and within 10 years, the company had begun producing more than 200,000 pairs of boots per year, and issued the standard footwear to soldiers during World War I. Red Wing also continued to equip soldiers with boots during World War II.
Red Wing also produces shoes under the Carhartt, Irish Setter Boots, Vasque, and Worx brands. Although Red Wing has long been considered to be the premier steel toe, motorcycle and work boot manufacturer, they also produce leather athletic shoes and moccasins.
