Red Wing Hunting Boots

Red Wing Hunting Boots

Red Wing Hunting Boots in Charlottesville

Hunting season will be here soon… and now is the best time to take a thorough inventory of all of your gear! There’s nothing worse than being on the hunt with shoddy or broken equipment. After all… you wouldn’t take a rusty rifle out to the blind, would you? We hope not! You’d either restore that ol’ boom stick back to its former glory, or buy a new one. The same goes for your footwear! If what you’re strapping onto your feet before you go on the hunt is no longer quite up to snuff, it’s time to replace them with some Red Wing hunting boots!

Our Red Wing Hunting Boots

At Red Wing Charlottesville, we’ve got a huge selection of purpose-built hunting boots that keep your feet warm, dry, and secure as you stalk your prey. If you’re a fall hunter, we’ve got boots that are lighter Continue reading




Great Hikes on the Appalachian Trail

Now that it’s starting to cool down a bit, it’s time to hit the trails. We’re lucky here in Charlottesville, as we’re extremely close to the unparalleled Appalachian Trail! This world renown trail stretches for close to 2,200 miles and runs through 13 states. At Red Wing Charlottesville, we’ve heard tons of stories of dedicated backpackers who attempt (some successfully, some not as much) to walk the entire stretch in one season, starting at Springer Mountain in Georgia and ending at Mount Katahdin in Maine.

Should You Attempt To Take On the Appalachian Trail All At Once?

Make no mistake about it: hiking the full Appalachian trail in one long stint is extremely challenging, even for the most experienced and seasoned hikers. Not only will you commit from a physical and mental standpoint, but also you have to commit months of non-stop hiking time (difficult for most people with full time jobs)! On average, this full Continue reading




Breathable Footwear from Red Wing Charlottesville

Breathable Footwear

Man… it’s hot as heck out there. It’s the summer, and it’s been a scorcher! We’ve had days where the heat index exceeded 100, and that’s not just a hot day… that’s the type of day when your phone starts blowing up with warnings from the national weather service to stay inside if you can. Well, some of us have stuff to do whether it’s 100 degrees or 0. For folks like that, we recommend you pick up a pair of breathable footwear from Red Wing!

Breathable Footwear from Red Wing Charlottesville

We have breathable footwear in almost every one of our brands. Whether we make them breathable with how they’re designed or the type of materials we use to construct them, one thing remains constant: the lack of swamp foot at the end of the day!

Like anytime you buy Red Wings, the key is to talk to us at the store. Continue reading




Recapping the CATEC Sign-To-Work Event!

CATEC

Last month, the Charlottesville Albemarle Technical Education Center (CATEC) celebrated the graduation of its most recent class… and Red Wing Charlottesville was excited to be a part of that event!

About CATEC

CATEC is a regional technical education center that offers an alternative path to gain skills and experience, as well as a great job, to high school students and adults. Many of Charlottesville’s hardest working folks came from CATEC, and that’s a legacy to be proud of.

The Sign-To-Work Event

As a reward for signing their job offers to work at local businesses throughout Albemarle County and Charlottesville, Ten graduates from CATEC were given a little help from other local businesses. Red Wing Shoes provided $150 gift cards to the graduates. After all…when they’re working hard at the new gig, they’re gonna need boots that work hard for them. More on the CATEC event below:

Back to Normal!

It’s been a long and tough haul, but we are happy to finally be at the finish line. Effective immediately, Red Wing Charlottesville, in accordance with the advice and guidance of the CDC and the State of VA, is no longer observing the majority of the COVID mask and capacity-limiting protocols we put in place last year. That means one thing… things are finally back to normal!

What this means for you

When the pandemic hit last year, we did everything in our power to protect our customers while staying open to provide them with the footwear they needed to get the job done. We’re happy to announce that we will no  longer require mask wearing at our store in Pantops, nor will we observe reduced capacity limits.

Of course, you are more than welcome to do whatever makes you comfortable – if you’d like to wear a mask, feel free! Additionally, we Continue reading

How to Clean Your Red Wing Boots!

Now that winter’s just about over, it’s time to clean off your trusty work boots. If you’re wondering about the best way(s) to clean Red Wing boots… you’re in the right place!

While you can always bring your boots up to Red Wing Charlottesville for a complimentary cleaning and polishing every 30 days, we know not all our customers can make it to our store that often. Truth is, we know some of you just like to take care of things on your own! Whether you’d like us to clean your boots or you prefer to clean them at home, you should approach the maintenance of your boots like you would your car. How often do you change your oil or give your car a bath? In our experience, most of our customers don’t clean their boots nearly as often as they should, which limits the longevity of the boot over time.

So Continue reading




Boot Care in the Winter

Boot Care

After this beautiful Indian summer we had, colder weather arrived last month in Charlottesville. Now that we’ve seen our first snowfall and regular sub-30 temperatures, taking care of your feet and proper boot care is more and more important! After all, we’re coming up on the time of year when hard working men and women throughout Central Virginia and the Shenandoah are subjecting their boots to the harshest that Virginia has to offer.

Every year, folks ask us for any “tricks of the trade” regarding special boot care practices in the colder seasons. Lucky for you (thanks to the internet!), we can now share these with the world! With that in mind, we’re pleased to share some good “winter boot care” tips and suggestions that will keep your Red Wing boots clean and looking good all winter long.

The truth is….one of the strongest selling points of Red Wing boots are their longevity, and we Continue reading
