Red Wing Shoes Hand-Sewn Collection Video by Tenue de Nîmes
Maine, once America’s footwear capital, has a rich shoemaking history that dates back to the mid 1800s.The Androscoggin River supplied power to many of the tanneries and factories of the early 20th century. It was on the banks of this river that massive brick buildings were built that formed the backbone of America’s industrial shoe production.Today, the few workshops that have survived have done so because they make some of the highest quality and unique footwear in the world. These remaining companies are proudly carrying on the legacy and tradition of making shoes one stitch at a time, by hand.
With this video Tenue de Nîmes likes to emphasize that quality and style go hand-in-hand, and more importantly that quality and craftsmanship are everlasting.
