STYLE NO. 2900: LINEMANLineman boots are the style of work boots made specially for electric line workers. As compared to other Red Wing boots, Lineman boots boast a lacing channel which extends farther toward the toe. This allows for extra adjustment of the boots in order to hold the feet tighter within, which is believed to improve the sure-footedness of lineman working on poles and wires. This style in Black Abilene leather is a revival of Red Wing's classic Lineman work boot style, combined with a white Traction-Tred sole and Goodyear welt construction.
