At Red Wing Shoe Company, we have a clear but simple purpose: To be a great company that makes a difference in people’s lives. We are fueled by our strong values and the commitment to craftsmanship that has been at our core for over 100 years.
Red Wing Shoe Company is a business founded on purpose, and our unique heritage still shapes the way we do business today. Charles Beckman established Red Wing Shoes in 1905 to supply workers in industries likes mining, farming, and logging with durable, comfortable footwear.
Today, this legacy of purposeful-craftsmanship never leaves our mind, and sustains everything we do. When we introduce new products or consider new business initiatives, we apply what was developed so successfully with that first pair of Red Wing Shoes. Each becomes a natural extension of our purpose and a visible touch of the craftspeople behind each product.
