Introducing J.Crew X Red Wing Heritage

10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

This collection of five Red Wing Heritage shoes includes an exclusive new edition of the Roughneck Boot, a vintage Red Wing style from our first collaboration in 2007. Find the collection starting October 20th in select J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com.



a decade of collaboration
To celebrate our shared history of reinventing classic American style, we first partnered with Red Wing 10 years ago to revive some of its vintage styles for a new generation of men.


AN AMERICAN LEGACY

Charles Beckman, a successful shoe merchant in the small town of Red Wing, Minnesota, created the Red Wing Shoe Company in 1905. Today, just three miles from the original factory, a third generation of employees continue Red Wing’s history of craftsmanship and attention to detail.





HOW THE BOOTS ARE MADE

The components in a pair of Red Wing boots move through more
than 230 steps in the Minnesota factory and are touched by about 100 craftsmen using many of the same techniques from Red Wing’s early days.

The leather is dyed for six to 12 hours in 16 wooden drums constructed in Italy, using proprietary formulas of ingredients from around the world.

Puritan sewing machines melt wax into the thread of Red Wing’s signature triple-stitch seams to make the boots more water-resistant.

Most Red Wing boots are made with a Goodyear welt, a method of stitching a thin leather welt with the upper and the leather insole so the boots can
be resoled.



THE 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

In addition to the Roughneck Boot, the collection includes the deconstructed oxford, a completely new style that is unlined (to make it easier to break in) and has a lighter sole.



HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BOOTS

Red Wing boots are made to withstand just about anything, thanks to leather that is water-, stain- and perspiration-resistant. But to keep them looking sharp, you want to clean and condition them every month or so. Red Wing boot care kits are available in select stores listed below and at jcrew.com. To learn how to care for your boots, check out our boot care guide.
