STYLE NO. 2936: LINEMAN Lineman 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 Brown Boomer leather is a revival of Red Wing's classic Lineman work boot style, combined with a Vibram Lug sole and Goodyear storm-welt construction.
