The Red Wing Shoe Company is adding to

Park Center Mall, opening in September.
It will feature the latest in Red Wing
work products, including purpose-built
footwear from the Red Wing brand, as well

Irish Setter lines and footwear from the Red
Wing Heritage collection.
“Red Wing Shoe Company has been a
leader in the footwear industry for over
100 years. We continue to excel by offering
exceptional service and fit as well as
great quality products with every shopping
experience,” said Wes Thies, vice president
of North America sales and operations. “We
have a wide selection of footwear products
to meet anyone’s needs, including men’s
and women’s styles, work footwear, casual
footwear and outdoor footwear.”
He said leather chairs, brick walls, custom fixtures and a state-of-the-art sound system bring visitors into an industrial work-themed atmosphere that provides comfort for customers and connects them with the core principals of the Red Wing Shoe Company.
Designed with consumer needs in mind, the new location was selected for its convenience, featuring spacious parking and visibility for easy locating, said Thies.
The company is headquartered in Minnesota. According to the company, a Red Wing, Minn., shoe merchant named Charles Beckman saw a need for shoes designed for the demanding work of industries like mining, logging and farming.
He set out to develop work boots to fill this need and in 1905 he and some investors opened a company named Red Wing Shoes. The new Red Wing Store located at the Clifton Park Center Mall will be next to the Hilton Garden Inn. Store hours of operation are schedule for Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
