ABOUT: The story behind the style.
STYLE NO. 8881 : CLASSIC MOC
Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 8881 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Olive Mohave leather, white Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Nothing says, “Red Wing”, like a moc toe boot with a white polyurethane outsole. It’s a style we started making in the 1950s for sportsmen but it worked equally well on farms and in factories due to that Traction Tred sole with its minimal tread that sheds mud and provides the underfoot comfort the work day required. The crescent-shaped stitching on the toe was inspired by the construction of the shoes, or “moccasins” originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toe boots have since become a legend.
MATERIALS: How it's made.
Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.
