In the 1950's policemen still walked their beats and the postman walked his mail route. They needed comfortable and sturdy footwear for the eight hours spent on their feet. In 1954, Red Wing responded with style #101, a sturdy black oxford with a moldable insole. It could be polished to meet their uniform requirements, but tough enough for everything their day encountered. The 101 would go on to be part of the Red Wing brand for 46 years and sell over 2 million pairs. It became one of the best selling styles in company history.
Today it is known by the name 101 Postman and it is the perfect coice for you whos looking for a pair of workshose that also looks dressy when worn.
