2995 Lineman Black Retan
Fitting information +
Red Wing Shoes tend to run larger than your regular shoe size. Please take this into consideration when purchasing a pair. We would therefore recommend to take this style a full size down.The Red Wing Shoes Lineman 2995 Black Retan boots were first developed in Red Wing, Minnesota in the 1940s, when the electrical network in the United States was expanding. The so-called linemen that needed to construct and maintain the power lines had one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and therefore needed suitable equipment with a high degree of safety. The lineman found out they also needed a pair of boots that would fit tight to their feet, with laces going all the way down to the toe cap. A so-called ‘lace-to-toe’ boot. This way there would be no danger of slipping or getting caught in the power lines. This is where the Red Wing Lineman Shoe came to life. The Lineman 2995 is built on a black Nitrile Cork sole with a Goodyear welt and features Red Wing Black Retan smooth-finished premium leather from Red Wing Shoes’ own S.B. Foot Tannery. This smooth-finished leather is made from only the most premium, top-quality hides for a classic and elegant look. The 2995 Lineman comes with 48'' black taslan laces.
