Around the early 1900s, a shoe merchant by the name of Charles Beckman saw a problem: he couldn't offer hardworking people a pair of work boots that could hold up to the demands of their jobs.

The Red Wing, Minnesota native's solution was simple: create a shoe rugged enough to withstand the farming, logging, and mining industries of his era, yet be comfortable enough to wear all day. A few years later, in 1905, Charles saw his hard work come to fruition. His first boots were rolling off the production line and Red Wing Shoes was born.

More than 100 years have passed since the first Red Wing boots were created but the commitment to Charles Beckman's vision remains. From the oil field to the cotton field, Red Wing's work boots for men consistently deliver high-quality, comfortable footwear that works as hard as you do.

Why Are Red Wing Work Boots So Popular?

It's easy to pass Red Wing's success off as a fad. After all, they're seen on more oil rigs, construction sites and corn fields than any other pair of work boots. Try a pair on, however, and you'll find that their popularity is more than just a passing trend. Red Wing work boots are known for their glove-like fit, outrageous comfort and attention to detail on each and every pair of mens work boots -- not just the most expensive ones.

If that's not enough to convince you, their warranty will be. Here's the deal: If you're not happy with the fit, the comfort or any other aspect of the boot, return it within 30 days for a full refund -- no questions asked.
