Men’s Moc Boot
With Crepe Sole. Traditional Work Boot.
This ankle-high lace-up with wide mocassin-style front is a traditional 1950s work boot and the signature product of American shoe manufacturer Red Wing. A typical feature of the shoe is its distinctive crepe sole which insulates against the cold. The robust, oil-tanned cow leather develops an attractive patina over time. Seams stitched in contrasting black or cream are carefully finished in typical Red-Wing style and guarantee long-term use.
Red Wing Shoe Company. Typical Features: Oil-Tanned and Goodyear-Welted.
Work boots and shoes famed for their comfort and durability originate from Red Wing, Minnesota, since 1905. Red Wing treats the full-grain cowhides the company uses for its shoes according to a particular technique, developed at the end of the 1940s and patented for Red Wing. The company purchases hides that have been pre-processed with chromium salts and then tans them using mineral oil, hence the term “oil-tanned”. The procedure results in an oil content of 22% (8 to 10% is standard) and makes the leather exceptionally flexible despite its material thickness, hard-wearing and water-repellent. The quality of the craft corresponds to the high quality of the leather: Red Wing has its shoes mechanically welted using the complex Goodyear welt technique.
