THE HISTORY BEHIND THE MOC TOE STYLE:
Nothing says, “Red Wing”, like a moc toe boot with a white polyurethane outsole. It’s been around since the 1950s, originally 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.
The new model is a totally new and unique product. The combination of Rough out and Smooth leather on a Moc Toe has been seen since 1981. This incarnation was slightly a different construction, however.
The "Roughout" leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at Red Wing's very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co.
