ABOUT

THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
The American cowboy has a long-standing tradition of wearing boots incorporating a western design for both functionality and appeal. During the era of the cattle drive in the United States, ranchers began looking for a practical and durable style of boot. They needed something to protect their ankles and legs while in the saddle, and to protect from course brush and snakes while dismounted. High quality leather was sought for durability and a slip-on design was preferred for convenience. The Red Wing Pecos collection was introduced in 1953 and became popular with farmers, ranchers and oil rig workers. They combine the design of a western boot with the toughness of a Red Wing work boot.
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.
