Maybe you noticed that summer is over and soon the snow and ice will be falling upon us. That means it’s time to winter-up your wardrobe, and there’s nothing more important than good footwear (except maybe a stylish hat). Red Wing (Minnesota) is home to the Red Wing Shoe Company, a place that has enough varieties of tough shoes to get your through many winters of heavy snow and ice. If you aren’t sure if Red Wing Shoes are for you, check out the World’s Largest Boot (size 638 1/2 D) on display in Red Wing. You have to be impressed with any company willing to go to that kind of effort for one shoe.
