The Moto Quest in Bali

We’ve got some news from our friend Aileen who is travelling around the world on her motorcycle wearing a 8111 Iron Ranger that she picked up in our Berlin store. The starting point of her trip was Bali and she has now spent some time exploring the island on her bike. Curvy mountain roads, cloudy villages, remote beaches, water palaces… Aileen is living a great adventure and she is enjoying every minute of it!

Munson Ranger & Red Wing Post Release Party

We took last week’s Bread & Butter trade show as an opportunity to celebrate the release of both, the Munson Ranger - previously only available in Japan - and the first issue of the Red Wing Post.

Many friends and Red Wing enthusiasts followed our invitation and joined us for drinks and snacks at our Berlin store. As the Munson Ranger is available exclusively at the official Red Wing stores and supplies are strictly limited, everyone was keen to see this new style and to pick up a free copy of the Red Wing Post as well.

Thanks everybody for coming out!

Introducing the Munson Ranger

We are more than pleased to announce the arrival of the highly anticipated Munson Ranger that until now has only been available to the Japanese market.

The features of the Munson Ranger, which goes by style number 8012, are the specially developed Burgundy Settler leather, the distinctive toe cap and of course the Munson last.

Developed by American military doctor Edward L. Munson, this last became the predominant feature of all Red Wing boots that were supplied to the American forces during the first and second World War. In 1912, Dr. Munson set out to develop a last that would end the problems of poorly fitting military boots as crammed toes caused many painful ailments among the men in the military services.
In order to create his universally fitting last, Dr. Munson measured the feet of over 2000 Army men and designed a last that would allow generous space and maximum comfort inside the toe cap.

The newly released Munson Ranger is now exclusively available at the official Red Wing Stores. As quantities are strictly limited, make sure to stop by one of our stores quick! And while you are there, remember to pick up your free copy of the first issue of The Red Wing Post as well!

Road to Red Wing - Part 2

As the trip continued, Mick, Axel and Simon stopped by the Red Wing Store in Hopkins/Minnetonka to talk shop with Area Retail Manager Mike Gedatus. When feet were measured and shoes were tried on in the store, Mike’s expert knowledge was simply stunning and made a lasting impression on the guys.

Together with the Londoners, the three went on to the “Twin Cities” Minneapolis - St. Paul where they visited the BlackBlue store and met up with Danno and Nate of Muskhaven. Naturally, the guys couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to go vintage hunting on Lyndale Avenue in Minneapolis and - as the trip was already drawing to an end - to enjoy a fun night out with Michiya, general manager RW Asia and Aki, head product designer RW heritage division.

Road to Red Wing - Part 1

Two weeks ago, Mick, Axel and Simon of our Berlin and Munich stores boarded a plane to the United States and were greeted by the warm sunshine of Minneapolis, MN a couple of hours later. After a short drive along the Mississippi River, the three found themselves in the birth place and motherland of Red Wing Shoes; in Red Wing, Minnesota.

Some highlights of the trip came up soon: Our guys met up with the Red Wing London Staff and took a tour through Red Wing’s very own S.B. Foot Tannery where all the hides are tanned before they are used in the shoe fabrication. The European visitors were especially amazed at the almost ancient Italian machinery that is still used for the conditioning of the hides.

Next up was a visit to the actual Red Wing Shoes plant. Again, the guys watched everything in awe (espescially the operation of the very, very old sewing machines) and were astonished at the incredible noise level inside the plant as their tour guide Chris took them through the fabrication.

We hope you enjoy the impressions and stay tuned for Part 2 of “Road to Red Wing”.
