Red Wing Heritage Oxford

Untitled

Since 1905, Red Wing Shoes has built tough but comfortable footwear for the working class. Inspired by the success of the classic 875 and 877 work boots, the moc-toe classic work oxfords were born out of necessity. Managers who started their careers on the factory floor needed a lighter shoe to keep comfortable at their desks and moving about the factory. The oxfords maintained Red Wing’s storied durability while remaining light enough to be worn all day at a desk. The Style No. 8056 oxfords are great for work or play, and the classic design maintains a professional look while being a fairly rugged shoe. The Sage Mojave leather upper has the perfect texture, while the Brown Neoprene cushioned outsole keeps your feet comfortable. Buy ($240)
