  • Red Wing Boots and Safety at Work

    One of the great developments of the 20th century in America was workers' rights. These helped regulate working conditions so that children could go to school rather than work in factories, shift times were standardized, workplaces were sanitary, and work with hazardous components was subject to safety regulations. All of these developments have continued to place a large part in workers' well-being. We carry a variety of work boots that comply with standards set down by the government to keep people safe on the job. Red Wing boots have features that are in-line with labor standards.
