On the more dressy side of Red Wing shoes is a Beckman 9411 Black Cherry Featherstone 6-inch boot. Still a true work boot at heart and the story for its birth goes like this.
The Red Wing Beckman is named after the companies founder: Charles Beckman, a German immigrant who founded the Red Wing Shoe Company in 1905. When Mr. Beckman was walking the unpaved and mudddy streets of Red Wing, MN he needed a solid and sturdy boot that could be polished to match his status as a business succeed entrepreneur.
Everyone with a sharp eye can see that the Featherstone leather is the highest quality leather, made from the finest hides available. The Red Wing 9011 Beckman has a layered leather Roccia outsole with rubber traction which provides good grip on any surface and comes with black waxed laces.
Sure, breaking it in takes time, but it will be the most handsome boot for years and years of use.
