Red Wing Heritage has released a versatile work boot derivative of the brands archives, Blacksmith. Updated from the brand’s Beckman boot, the Blacksmith collection offers a nitrile sole, and four now rougher wearing leathers: Briar Oil Slick, Charcoal Rough & Tough, Bourbon Yuma, and Copper Yuma.
The Blacksmith collection follows a strict series of steps in production: they’re still using the same Puritan sewing machines as on the original boots, the iconic triple stitch is added for water resistance right before the lasting process. At their final stages, Red Wing Heritage boots are water resistant and made with Goodyear Welt construction to ensure a long lasting and re-craftable boot.
