The latest addition to our Red Wing Heritage collection are the two new Work Oxfords styles with the plain round toe, style 8051 Black Star and 8052 Brick Settler. Since they are a whole new style, we thought it be nice to give them a proper introduction with all of the exact details and characteristics. Have a look:
The Work Oxford style is build on the last Nº 8, which is the same one used for the shape of the 6" Beckman or the Iron Ranger styles. The outer sole, constructed underneath with a goodyear-welt, is a Nitrile Cork Sole that is known for its extreme durability. Both of the styles have the brass eyelets painted in a tonal color, giving the shoe a nice uniform appearance. This is identical for the color of the laces, which are made from a nylon to ensure a longlasting lifetime. The two colorways in which they are available, the Black Star and the Brick Settler, are both full-grain finished leathers perfectly suitable to polish them for some good luster. The leathers on the shoe are held together by Red Wing's famous triple stitch vamping and are double lined with leather on the heel part of the shoe.
Last but not least, did you know the design of the shoe is inspired on the first classic Oxford style ever designed by Red Wing in the 1950s? Take a look at the 8051 - Work Oxford Black Star and the 8052 - Work Oxford Brick Settler in our webstore!
Great news folks! We got the all new Red Wing styles in for the coming Spring and Summer.
We're proud to introduce you to the new Red Wing style named the Work Oxford. With a plain round toe, the design was inspired on the classic style Oxford shoe that Red Wing manufactured in the 1950s. Back then it was the first ever Oxord style shoe with a sole made out of a combination of rubber and cork. This made it surprisingly light and really comfortable to walk in. The Work Oxford is released in two leather variations, the Black Star and the Brick Settler.
We're already familiar with the Hand Sewn collection launched by Red Wing last season. Now they added two more colors to the unique hand stitched collection: the Sage Mohave and the Charcoal Rough & Tough. A moccasin style, thought with a slight corporate touch which makes it an all-round wearable Red Wing style.
Last but not least we'd like to announce the European exclusive style of the Work Chukka. As you might know, the design from the Work Chukka dates from 1953, when it was launched as an alternative to the heavy weight working boots on the market. It was the ideal solution for artists and craftsmen that needed a work style shoe that was still easy to walk and work in. The new 3149 style is made from a leather named Olive Mohave, a waterproof suede leather with the perfect color tone for the brighter days.
As spring is showing up and first sunbeams warming our skin, we'll feature a series of shoes that are more suitable for the warmer times. To start with the beautiful Red Wing Shoes 8103 Work Oxford Oro Russet Portage. The Red Wing Work Oxford was built to meet the demands of factory managers who needed a sturdy work shoe as they moved from their office to the factory floor. It is a low version of the 6" Moc and build around the Norwegian Welt construction to add extra durability. The outsole is the Cushion Crepe Wedge with Traction Tred.
Let's bring some color in your life and enjoy the first days of spring with these lovely deep red Oxford shoes.
