Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 8818 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Black Chrome and BlackAbiline Roughout, a cream Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Nothing says, “Red Wing”, like a moc toe boot with a white polyurethane outsole. It’s a style we started making in the 1950s for sportsmen but it worked equally well on farms and in factories due to that Traction Tred sole with its minimal tread that sheds mud and provides the underfoot comfort the work day required. The crescent-shaped stitching on the toe was inspired by the construction of the shoes, or “moccasins” originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toe boots have since become a legend.
