STYLE NO. 2015: HUNTSMAN
The Huntsman 2015 is inspired by Red Wing's early hunt boot design elements. An 8 inch lace-up boot built using Black Klondike leather, No. 326 last and Gro-Cord sole , this limited edition Huntsman 2015 features enickel plated brass eyelets, leather shoe laces and printed Red Wing tag on underside of the leather.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Introduced in 1936, Red Wing Shoes' popular no. 668 was marketed as "The Bird Shotter's Boots." The 668 debuted as one of the company's first hunting boots and quickly became a boot of choice for long days outdoors. Over time, the 668 eventually evolved into Red Wing's iconic style no. 877. In year 2015, Red Wing Heritage reinvented style 668 for the company's 110 year anniversary, introducing the Huntsman style 2015.
MATERIALS
Full finished leathers have a smooth, polished surface that enhances the natural beauty of the leather.
SMOOTH-FINISHED LEATHER
Smooth-finished leathers have a polished surface that enhances the true beauty and quality of the leather. Only the most premium, top-quality hides are used to craft smooth-finished leathers. The result is a beautiful, classic-looking leather used to build more elegant styles, such as the Red Wing Heritage Beckman Collection. The polished look and feel of the smooth-finished leather requires more specialized care and attention to keep it maintained.

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. 2015: HUNTSMAN
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 2015 IS BUILT USING THE NO. 326 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.
  • Fits a variety of foot shapes
  • Should be sized up ½ if used with a footbed or orthotic
