Happy Trails

24 Nov

This summer I headed with some friends to Red Wing, Minnesota for some antiquing, lunch and a stop at Minnesota heritage brand Red Wing Shoes.  On our way back to the Twin Cities, we drove along the Mississippi River on the Wisconsin side and saw a motorcycle rally in a small town (the name of which I’m forgetting now).  I’m not a motorcycle person, but the images were stunning, so I took some shots.

À bientôt,

Field Trip: Red Wing Shoes

24 Sep

The girls and I recently headed down to Hastings and Red Wing, Minnesota.  Red Wing being, of course, the HQ of heritage brand Red Wing Shoes (which have become extremely hipster as of late).

Here’s a brief tour of the shop:

Red Wing Shoes owns the Guinness World Record for the largest boot!

upstairs is the company’s own Shoe Museum

all of the sizes that Red Wing Shoes’ work boots are made in (plus custom orders, I’m sure)

one of the early sewing machines used to stitch boots

in the basement is the outlet – with row after row of shoes & boots

Boops tries on a pair

a custom bench, sporting the company’s logo

À demain,
