Now that we are in the fall, it is time to start thinking about good boots. Good boots with resistant and durable laces, the kind of a lifetime. And you won’t find anything better than the boots from the Red Wing Boots brand, authentic artisan boots made to withstand the hardest work but soft to take care of your feet. In our country you can find them in the Corbeto’s Boots store, the official point of sale of Red Wing Boots in Barcelona.

And the thing is that Red Wings boots are not like the others. Red Wing Shoes has its factory in the city of the same name in the state of Minnesota. And it is one of the few American boot manufacturers that still carry out the entire manufacturing process in the country. In addition, they use the same artisan processes as when they began at the beginning of the 20th century, more than a hundred years ago.

Why choose Red Wing Boots

Red Wing Boots stand out for two main characteristics: for their careful artisan process and for the quality of their raw materials. The process of a Red Wing boot, all the way that the materials and the different pieces that make up the boot follow before being finished, progress through more than thirty different steps, worked by the hands of about a hundred artisans. This process makes Red Wings boots a high quality footwear.

In summary, this is the process of the artisan manufacture of Red Wing Boots:

  • The cut: The shoe-making process, largely unchanged since Red Wing’s founding, begins with the cut of the leather for the boot. Specialized leather cutters carefully place the cutting dies on each hide. As no two sides of leather are the same, selecting the best pieces is an art that can only be done by the most experienced craftsmen in the factory.
  • The Assembly: Cut leather pieces are stitched together to form the upper part of the boot, so skilled sewing machine operators require careful hand-eye coordination. The same Puritan sewing machines that did the work when Red Wing was founded are used for this task. In fact, many of these machines have been in operation since 1920.
  • The stretch: During the front stretch process, the fitted upper is pulled over the boot, giving it its final shape. Leather trim is sewn to the upper and leather insole, using the Goodyear binding process patented in 1869.
  • The lower one: The sole is sewn or glued to the midsole, completing the manufacturing process.
  • The finish: Before being boxed, all boots are carefully inspected twice by expert eyes. Also, depending on the leather, each boot is cleaned, polished, brushed, and finished by a team of experts.
