Red Wing boots have been tried and tested since 1905, garnering fans the world over thanks to the brand’s quality materials and construction methods. As classic as they are, however, we enjoy a good collaboration that sees its boots step outside of the shoebox. From archival boot variations to slope-ready snowboard boots, these are some of the most interesting Red Wing boot collabs out there right now.
Red Wing x Indigofera Climber Boots
When you turn 10 years old, you’d celebrate with your own custom pair of boots, right? That’s what Indigofera did when they reached a decade of slinging selvedge jeans and other hardwearing goods. The brand’s Climber Boots follow in the steps of Red Wing’s archival lineman boots and stand at eight inches dressed in gorgeous Black Prairie Leather. But the kicker has got to be the avocado green Vibram soles.
Red Wing Heritage x Todd Snyder Moc Toe Boots
Red Wing’s Moc Toe boot is the brand’s flagship style. Todd Snyder’s rendition takes the paneling of the 8-inch Classic Moc and cuts it down a couple of inches while adding some tonal texture to the mix by buddying up suede with smooth leather. The result is subtle, yet notable enough — this one might have come from Japan.
Red Wing x Mossy Oak Classic Moc
It’s one thing to add some texture to Red Wing’s Classic Moc, it’s another to print a whole image onto it. In cahoots with Mossy Oak, these hard-to-see stompers are covered in an autumnal leave camouflage for keeping your feet covert.
Red Wing x New Balance 997 Sneakers
Okay, this one’s not exactly a boot. But it’s hard to ignore a New Balance sneaker when it uses Red Wing’s own leathers. Employing Red Wing’s Hawthorne Muleskinner roughout leather, New Balance’s 997 got a major materials upgrade.
Red Wing x Burton Snowboard Boots
These boots were made for boarding. Built for the slopes, Red Wing’s collaboration with Burton brought about one of the gnarliest uses for their leather we could find. You won’t find any Goodyear welt construction here, but you will find all sorts of tech made to keep your feet warm on and off the snowboard.
Red Wing x Indian Motorcycles
Perhaps a little less surprising compared to its collab with Burton, a trio of boots is a neighborly effort with Indian Motorcycles. The collection features pull-on engineer boots for men and women as well as a taller version of Red Wing’s Iron Ranger. Each boot comes with all the trappings of your typical Red Wing with the added cachet of Indian Motorcycle-branded hardware and debossed logo.
Red Wing x Eat Dust Pecos Boots
The Pecos boot found its way well beyond the cowboys of Texas for which they were originally intended. The pull-on boots became the go-to style for farmers, construction workers, oil workers and, now, Red Wing boot aficionados. This two-tone collab with Belgian-based Eat Dust combines Red Wing’s Oro-Russet Portage leather with their Oro-Russet Abilene Roughout leather for a tasteful mix that’s at home on the prairie or in the pub.
