Minnesota has earned a reputation outside of the state for being a bit of strange place. A place that produces a lot of snow, and more than a few oddities. (Looking at you, Jesse Venture and Michelle Bachmann)...
So when a locally-grown company is selected to be a featured partner of a well-known and upscale retailer, and thrives at it -- well, that's worth mentioning.
Red Wing Shoes started just over a century ago in the little river town it's named for, just south of the Twin Cities. With a vision to create something both comfortable and durable enough for the men who worked as farmers, miners, and loggers; Charles Beckman started a bit of a trend.
Decades later, that attention to craftsmanship, quality, and quintessential American style still shine through. And while they are still a favorite choice amongst those needing a great pair of work boots, the offerings from Red Wing Shoes are also enjoying the chance to be considered stylish as well.
In recent years J.Crew has revitalized their mens' offering by collaborating with well-known brands like Alden, Barbour, Converse, and more to produce exclusive pieces. Red Wing Shoes has joined the ranks, and is quietly making a name for itself on a whole other stage. One of our favorites for fall is the Wabasha chukka boots. Go ahead and check 'em out.
