Red Wing Boots continues to build on it’s classic Heritage collection by adding a stellar colorway to it’s classic Work Chukka. The charcoal “roughout” leather gives a unique rich look, not typical of your standard suede boot, with all of the features you’ve come to rely on from your Red Wings, such as their Atlas Tread and Goodyear Leather Welt. Made in the USA of course. Classy and rugged. Get these, do work. See more here.
From Red Wing about their “Roughout” technique:
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.
