Red Wing Hunting Boots in Pittsburgh

Hunting season is here (or, almost here, depending on how you hunt!) It’s time to hit the game trails and stalk your prey. You’re no greenhorn though – you know that before you step foot in the wilds, you need to thoroughly test and inspect all of your hunting equipment. From stands and blinds to calls and scopes… everything needs to be right. There’s nothing worse than coming back from the hunt empty handed because your gear failed. There’s one piece of kit you might not be thinking of that’s as important as anything else… your hunting boots! If your hunting boots are beat up, out of shape, and just not capable of getting the job done, we can help. Red Wing proudly stocks the world’s best hunting boots… Irish Setters!

Industrial Athletic Shoes from Red Wing Monroeville

Sometimes even if you’re not on the court or the field, you need a pair of flexible, durable, and agile shoes. When you combine that need with Red Wing Shoes? Great things happen… like our line of Industrial Athletic shoes!

Many of our customers are what we call “industrial athletes.” They have to be light on their feet for their job, but need high levels of protection still. For example, folks that work in big stock warehouses have to be able to climb and lift/carry heavy objects – all things that can be made a little more difficult in a high-ankle, heavy leather work boot.

We always say – for every job, there’s work footwear made to tackle it. For jobs like that – look for Red Wing’s Industrial Athlete footwear!
