RED WING HERITAGE
Red Wing Shoes was built on America’s great promise; if one worked hard enough, one could achieve anything. Charles Beckman, a Red Wing, Minnesota merchant was a big believer in this promise. From his main street shoe store, he saw firsthand the need for durable and comfortable boots, and in 1905, he founded the Red Wing Shoe Company. Word of the quality and comfort built into every pair spread quickly and the company prospered.
