 It seems as if the first floor at (capsule) NY is a Red-Wing-centric version of this tradeshow’s universe. Right smack in the middle of a bevvy of premium brands, Red Wing sets out their latest and greatest, the piece de resistance being the Iron Ranger boot. This sturdy yet trendy shoe was inspired by vintage Red Wing designs from the 1930s, says Jenny Tauer, marketing manager for Red Wing. To modernize the designs for a cosmopolitan society, new leathers were brought on the scene. Thankfully, in the midst of this rennaissance du boot, Red Wing sticks to its honorable legacy;  the Iron Ranger boot and its brethren are made in the USA with the same quality that has come to mark Red Wing’s 104 year-long history. Well done, Ms.Tauer! (--Antonio Reis)
