Red Wing Boots Style

Red Wing Style Guide

Red Wing has a variety of styles to choose from, and at Cloggs we stock two of the most popular styles from the Red Wing Heritage range; the 6 Inch Moc Toe (also commonly referred to as the Red Wing 875, due to the most product code of the most popular colour) and the classic Chukka boot.

6 Inch Moc Toe

The feature which sets the Red Wing 6 Inch Moc Toe is in the name. The moccasin style toe box is unusual in a work boot, and pays homage to the traditional Native American design; Red Wing were named after the city of Red Wing, which in turn was named for a Sioux chief.

The 875 and other colours have experienced a huge surge in casual use recently, but to be perfectly honest, it’s something of a mystery as to why it’s taken so long for them to be picked up by the mainstream fashion world.

Obviously, they still feature all the hallmarks that made them great work boots; they have been constructed using six inches of premium Red Wing Oro Legacy leather, goodyear welting to connect the upper to the sole and a Traction Tred rubber outsole which is all combined with triple stitch quality. The boots are an iconic style for the Red Wing brand, being one of the oldest designs and an all-round best seller throughout the many years of manufacturing.

The rich, deep colours of the Moc Toe, as well as the unusual toe box, which takes the edge off of the ruggedness of the boots, means these are fantastic all-rounders, wearable with jeans or chinos and in dressier outfits as well as those that are more casual.


Red Wing chukka boots are both sturdy and flexible and will complement your outfit no matter what your style or mood. They feature Red Wing’s signature Atlas Tred polyurethane outsole, premium Copper Worksmith leather and goodyear welt construction which combine to give you the perfectly lightweight and comfortable boot.

The chukka boot is renowned for its versatility, and while they still look perfectly at home in casual outfits, they’re probably more suitable for formal outfits than the 6 Inch Moc Toes, thanks to their classic silhouette.

Men’s ankle boots are one of the most enduring trends in footwear, with items like desert boots and Chelsea boots remaining consistently popular. With their famously high quality materials, including leather from their own tannery, and construction techniques, it’s entirely possible that, in years to come, Red Wing will become as synonymous with the chukka boot style as Clarks is with the desert boot.
