Red Wing Women's Moc Boot
With Crepe Soles. 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 boot 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. All Moc Boots come with traditional yellow and red laces which are threaded through seven pairs of eyelets. In addition to the men's boot, Red Wing now produces a version specifically for women, which are shaped on narrower shoe lasts.
Red Wing Shoe Company. Oil-Tanned and Goodyear Welted.
Work boots and shoes that are famed for their comfort and durability have been made in Red Wing, Minnesota since 1905. The full-grain cow hide used to make Red Wings are treated according to a special technique that was 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". This gives the leather an oil content of 22% (8 to 10% is normal), which makes it exceptionally flexible, hard-wearing and water-repellent despite its thickness. The quality of the workmanship corresponds to the high quality of the leather. Red Wing shoes are mechanically welted using the complex Goodyear welt technique.
