Known as the postman’s shoe, the 101 is crafted with Black Chaparral leather, a black cushion crepe and wedge sole for extreme sturdiness, underfoot comfort and a classic look.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Designed to meet Postal Service requirements, the 101 is sturdy, sleek and simplistic and these characteristics served America’s mailmen well. First introduced in 1954, Red Wing expands on this style with the more casual variations. Built using the same leather upper as the 101 including a dog tail, blind eyelets and a Goodyear Welt. The cushion crepe outsole gives these boots as much comfort as the 101, allowing for the longer walks, as a postman would.
Smooth-finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather. Only the most premium, top-quality hides are used to craft smooth-finished leathers. The result is a beautiful, classic-looking leather used to build more elegant styles, such as the Red Wing Heritage Beckman Collection. The polished look and feel of the smooth-finished leather requires more specialized care and attention to keep it maintained.
