Over a year ago, a team from Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam was invited to visit Red Wing Shoes in Minnesota. Having arrived with a purpose of discovering the production and craft, the team documented their visit seen through the video above. The Red Wing Shoes factory is home to a skillful batch of shoemakers, many of whom have stayed with the company for nearly 30 years. On a daily basis, the craftsmen ply their trade on vintage machines that were originally patented back in 1893 and still remain in commission to this day. In addition to the factory, Red Wing Shoes’ S.B. Foot tannery is an integral part of the brand, and one whose lifeline extends beyond that of the Minnesota factory.
