In celebration of its 11oth anniversary, Red Wing introduces a completely re-imagined "Huntsman." Released in 1936, shoe no. 668 was originally dubbed “The Bird Shooter’s Boot,” and quickly became the go-to option for the outdoorsmen. Because it was introduced at a time when leather soles were more prevalent, the iconic model helped shape the footwear landscape by popularizing rubber construction -- it also helped hunters walk more silently in the field.
The new 8-inch Huntsman has been completely re-imagined in black Klondike leather, but keeps the same "gro-cord" rubber sole as the original. Whether you're in the field creeping up on birds or in the city streets (hopefully not creeping), these make for a handsome fit anywhere.
