Red Wing Boots are synonymous with quality and long-lasting wear. The company was founded in the early 20th century by Charles Beckman from Red Wing, Minnesota. He saw a need in the marketplace for great quality, comfortable, long-lasting, men's work shoes. Even today, the company's quality statement is "Make Great Product, Deliver On Time, and Continuously Improve." That says a lot about the type of shoe you can expect when you purchase a Red Wing boot.
Originally started as a work boot company, the business has expanded over the years to include traditional boots for the job site, to hunting boots, to fashionable casual shoes for men and women. Along with this diversity of footwear, the company also sells motorcycle boots. As they say, the boots are so comfortable you wish they'd make saddles from the leather. Are you sold yet? Want to try a pair on for size?
We've found a number of different styles below of Red Wing motorcycle-style boots.
