Red Wing was founded in 1905 by Charles Beckman in Red Wing, Minnesota. Mr Beckman saw a need for shoes specifically designed for the demanding work of the local industries such as mining, logging, and farming. His aim was to make hardwearing durable footwear, that was also comfortable to wear.
The Sawmill’s all-weather performance echoes back over 40 years to the 1970s when Red Wing’s line of Great Outdoors boots broke new ground with construction to withstand the elements. The Sawmill is inspired by this legacy of American-made footwear built for confidence in all conditions. The 6-inch boot’s moisture-wicking lining and felt wool footbed keep feet warm, and a storm welt adds water resistance. Puritan triple-stitch construction ensures lasting durability, and a Vibram® TC-4 Plus outsole provides aggressive traction. The Sawmill is finished with a deerskin collar for premium comfort.
