Red Wing Shoes is a footwear company based in Red Wing, Minnesota that was founded by Charles H. Beckman in 1905.
Within 10 years of its inception, Red Wing Shoes was producing more than 200,000 pairs of boots per year and was the primary company manufacturing footwear for American soldiers fighing in World War I. Red Wing Shoes continued its tradition of producing footwear for wartime use by manufacturing boots for American soldiers during World War II.
In addition to manufacturing footwear under their own name, Red Wing Shoes also manufactures shoes under the Carhartt, Irish Setter Boots, Vasque, and Worx brands. In 2008, Red Wing Shoes began making shoes under the Red Wing Heritage Lifestyle moniker with models drawing inspiration from past styles within the company's century-long history.
