STYLE NO. 8827: 1920s Outing Boot
8827 "1920s Outing Boot" is a reproduction one of the brand's early 20th-century leather boot called "Outing Boot". It was created to be lighter, flexible and sporty. 8827 ”1920s Outing Boot" features the Hawthorne “Muleskinner” & Teak “Featherstone” 2 types of leathers, without toe box and Goodyear Welt construction. Built on Gro Cord King-B soles, these soles have deeper lugs, designed to give good traction mainly for outdoor sports such baseball, football, golf or hiking for leisure.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Back in the early 20th century, “sneaker” were athletic shoes worn for competitive indoor sport games and were not what people wore outdoor or as daily footwear. In that era, many American shoe makers made “Outing Boots" which were leather boots (such as 6” leather work boots) or shoes with leathers sole or hard and flat rubber soles that people wore when they play sports outdoor as leisure. Red Wing was also one of the shoemakers that manufactured soled Outing Boots. There were some different design variations of Outing Boots. Among them, the one that consisted of large one-piece side panels stitched to eye-stay and extended to toe, was a design which was applied to sports shoes in later years. Such "Outing boots" are lightweight and flexible. By using Munson shoe last (which became popular in 1920s for work and outdoor footwear), the toe shape fits to foot shape and contributes to comfort of actions. Today, Red Wing reproduces the “Outing Boot” by removing toe-box, and using Gro Cord “King-B” outsoles, popular in 1920s-50s of America, a unique outdoor sole with high traction . The “Outing Boot” has evolved from previous and become a uniquely characteristic classic leather footwear named “1920s Outing Boot” as one of the Red Wing new collections in Fall Winter 2018.
MATERIALS
ROUGHOUT LEATHER
Roughout leather is created using a reverse-suede technique at our very own S.B. Foot Tanning Co. While most tanneries split, thin and weaken the hide to create the rough suede surface, we simply use the other side of the hide. By doing so, we avoid splitting or thinning our full-grain hides. This makes our Roughout leather just as strong and durable as our other leathers.

Last:
Munson
A last is a form shaped similarly to that of a human foot and is used by shoemakers to determine the size, toe box and heel height for the finished shoe.
SIZING & BREAK IN
In order to build a Red Wing boot to an exact size and width, the boot is constructed around a shoe last.
STYLE NO. 8827: 1920s Outing Boot
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.
THE 8827 IS BUILT USING THE NO. Munson LAST:
A last is used in shoemaking to give footwear its three-dimensional shape. Resembling the human foot, the last determines critical toe, heel and girth dimensions for fit, style and function.
