Weekender Chukka Men
Lightweight, comfortable, casual: the Weekender Chukka
With "Weekender" Red Wing designates a shoe series that is not welted as usual in the Goodyear process, but is created in the so-called stitch-down process. In this process, the upper leather is pressed outward and sewn onto the sole, which keeps it more pliable. In combination with the flat crepe sole, such a shoe is also lighter, which further increases wearing comfort. On the wearing comfort also pays the form. The so-called chukka boots were first worn by polo players during breaks between sections of play (the "chukkas") to relax their feet, before finding their way into everyday wardrobes. The characterful "rough & tough" leather comes from the in-house tannery, it gets a nice patina with use. The insole is removable, it can be replaced with your own insoles if needed.
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.
