In anticipation of the winter months ahead, Red Wing Heritage has incorporated the newly developed Vibram #430 Mini Lug sole to a duo of popular lace-up boot styles, the Blacksmith and Iron Ranger. Designed to maintain a smooth and refined side profile, the rubber outsole provides grip and traction without any sacrifice to style. Having debuted in 2104, the versatile Blacksmith is based on the work boots that would be put to work during the day, and then shined for a night on the town. The Mini Lug Sole is applied to five new Blacksmith styles: the 2955, 3340, 3341, 3342, and 3343. The Iron Ranger, meanwhile, appears in the 8119 Oxblood style, equipped with bronze speed hooks and eyelets. Both silhouettes are made in the company’s Minnesota factory, with genuine Goodyear welt and triple-stitch construction.
