As a Main Street shoe store owner, he recognized the need for comfortable and durable work boots. Word of the quality and comfort built into every pair spread quickly and the company prospered. One hundred plus years later, the company is still located in Red Wing, Minnesota. Red Wing products consistently perform in environments spanning from the Mideast oil fields to the Midwest corn fields and still deliver on Mr. Beckman’s original promise of building a work boot that would be as tough as the customer who wore them.
