Established in Minnesota in 1905, Red Wing Shoes answered an American demand for more practical and comfortable work boots, and made footwear for American soldiers fighting in both world wars. By 2016, its high-quality footwear – triple-stitched seams, sturdy welts and rich leathers – were being sold in 110 countries, and newer boots, such as these black otter-tail leather Ice Cutter boots (£289), are based on the original designs. With its repair service increasingly popular, the company stands firmly behind its promise that a pair of Red Wings is for life.
