There’s snow on the ground in Charlottesville again! Now that we’ve had our first big snowfall, taking care of your feet and proper boot care is increasingly 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.

It’s our opinion that practical gifts are the best gifts. A new toy might be more fun, and that bottle of whiskey might lead to a great night, but there’s just something about giving a gift that your loved one really needs that makes it a bit more special.

We may be biased, but we think that our boots are one of the most practical gifts you can buy for that person on your list! Who couldn’t use another pair of durable, good looking, reliable, high-quality pair of boots?

Red Wing Shoes are purpose-built for their task. Whether that be impressing on an interview, keeping you warm on that trek out to the blind, keeping your toes protected on the workshop floor, or hitting the trails around Charlottesville – we’ve got a boot for it.

However – no need to be intimidated by our diversity and selection. If you’re not sure exactly which Continue reading

The “Trades-Made” Campaign from Red Wing Shoes

We are excited to announce the launch of our new “Trades-Made” campaign, which celebrates and supports skilled trade workers. This campaign will inspire brands from all sectors of the economy to unite in recognizing and honoring the importance of the skilled trades and their impact on society.

In Honor of Labor Day, Celebrate the “Trades-Made” Workers of America!

We launched this initiative on Labor Day 2023, which traditionally celebrates workers and their vital contributions to keeping our country running and prospering. As part of the campaign, we are incorporating a “Trades-Made” badge into our logo and inviting other brands to do the same. We hope to make the “Trades-Made” badge a symbol of a company’s commitment to honoring skilled trade workers.

We want to thank the hard-working men and women from the trades for everything they do for us. Their skills and dedication are essential to building and maintaining our world. We are Continue reading
