Inside the Red Wing Factory

When I have enough money and need a new pair of shoes, I’ve had my eye on a pair of Redwings for quite some time. They look and feel like a timeless boot, something that is well-made and built to last. Rarely are products made that way. Yes, they’re expensive, but they seem worth it. This video, which takes us inside the Red Wing Shoes factories doesn’t persuade me otherwise. They are crafting over 1.2 million pairs of purpose-built footwear ever year, in their three U.S. factories. You can almost smell the leather. [via devour]
