Introducing | The New Red Wing Heritage 875 and 877 Boots

Introducing | The New Red Wing Heritage 875 and 877 Boots

Red Wing’s Heritage division has updated the leather used on the iconic 875 and 877 boots to be truer to the original. Red Wing Heritage’s new Oro Legacy leather will replace the Oro-iginal leather that has been used on the previous version of the iconic 875 and 877. Oro Legacy is a supple, more natural richly colored leather that harkens back to the days when Red Wing’s salesmen recalled pulling boots out of the box “slick with oil”. And like the other leathers in the Heritage collection, it’s made right in Red Wing, Minnesota at S.B. Foot Tanning Company. The new Oro Legacy is a more natural leather that displays much more character than the previous 875 and 877 leather.

The 875 6″ moc-toe boot and 877 8″ moc-toe boot will retain their shape and classic styling, but the Oro Legacy leather update means that they’ll be as close to the originals as possible. Learn more about the 877 and 875 boots at RedWingHeritage.com.

Red Wing Handsewn Collection

Red Wing Handsewn Collection by Rancourt & Co., Maine

This season, Red Wing Shoe Co. has teamed up with Maine-based shoemaker Rancourt & Co. for a new Genuine Handsewn collection. All the pieces are made right in Rancourt’s hometown of Lewiston, which happens to be very well-known for being a hub for well-known, locally-made footwear companies. Rancourt & Co. has influenced many shoe brands that have come after it though very few are able to win the test of time like they have. This collaboration with Red Wing delivers a line of hand sewn shoes made from top-notch materials and crafted using classic, very manual and intimate methods.

Red Wing created a short film to explain their Made in Maine Handsewn Collection further (see below). Head over to Red Wing to get more details on the offerings as well.

The Brooklyn Circus x Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Looks

The Brooklyn Circus x Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Looks

The Brooklyn Circus has teamed up with Red Wing Heritage to shed some light on one of the bootmaker’s most iconic designs – the Iron Ranger. Iron Ranger boots were built with a double layer of leather over the toe to provide miners in Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range with an extra measure of safety. The heel pocket, a boot feature designed to provide extra support, was moved to the outside of the boot. This design eliminated a seam and provided a smooth and comfortable one-piece surface on the inside of the boot. It was a solid blend of design and function, hence the reason the boot’s so popular to this day. The BkC and Red Wing cooked up these styled looks featuring Red Wing Heritage styles 8111, 8113, and 8114. More looks below.

Red Wing Heritage 4563 Boot

Red Wing Heritage 4563 Boot for Nordstrom

Red Wing Heritage has released the 4563 Boot exclusively for Nordstrom, The 8-inch round toe work boot was first introduced in 1919, providing the comfort of an oxford with the durability of a work boot. “The benefit of the new style was the round toe design; achieved by eliminating a seam by using one larger piece of leather versus the previous practice of sewing together two smaller leather pieces.” The end result was a more durable boot and one that looks great as well. It features a 6-inch round-toe build and features a self-cleaning crepe sole with Goodyear welt construction.

Look for these at select Nordstrom locations across the United States including The Grove in Los Angeles, Cherry Creek in Colorado, King of Prussia outside of Philadelphia and Garden State Plaza which is the closest Nordstrom with the 4563 Boot outside of New York City.

Red Wing Heritage x Blends Black Suede Boot

Red Wing Heritage x Blends Black Suede Boot

Red Wing Heritage and California’s BLENDS have teamed up for this limited edition collaboration. Blends has custom designed a classic 6″ Round-toe boot in black suede to promote its Made in the USA campaign, which supports American-made brands and works to reintroduce American craftsmanship to a new generation. It’s been working as more and more are appreciating the work and detail put into each Red Wing boot made.

For this project Tak Kato, Blends creative director, picked the classic 6” Round Toe with the idea to make them more casual. He chose to utilize a suede upper, a concept that has never been used on the 6” boots in the USA before. He used tonal stitches to keep the boots simple and reflect a more casual look. Simplicity and minimalism are a key aspect of Blends design concept. In addition, he added the DNA of the classic Irish Setter sports boots by adding hooks at the top as opposed to eyelets all the way up.

The BLENDS x Red Wing Heritage collaboration will be released this Saturday, December 10th as a limited edition of 150 pairs. More looks and a video highlighting the collaboration below.
