This July, (date is yet to be confirmed) the American work wear shoes brand Red Wing Shoes is opening its first Dutch store in Amsterdam, in one of its famous “Nine streets”. Following in Berlin’s footprints Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam store will exclusively sell leather shoes and accessories.
Red Wing Shoes has been an authority in work wear shoes since 1905. Their leather boots are universally known for their indestructible quality. The brand uses its own leather, and both this raw material and the shoes themselves are still manufactured in the town of Red Wing, on the shores of the Mississippi river. Red Wing made a cross-over to lifestyle a few decades ago and has since become a staple in both the European and Japanese street scenes.
The collection of the store will consist of a wide assortment of Red Wing shoes, complemented by shoe maintenance items, belts, gloves and other accessories. The brands that represent this part of the collection include American Optical, Duluth Pack, Heritage Leather Company, Royal Republiq, Tanner Goods and The Hill-Side.
The store is a joint initiative between Red Wing Shoes and Tenue de Nîmes in Amsterdam.
