Chances are, you have worn or carried our leather at some point in your life. You may even be wearing some right now. Our leather has been used by dozens of different shoe companies and has been crafted into purses, bags, gun holsters & cases, and countless accessories.
We are the main leather supplier for Red Wing Shoe Company and a major supplier of leather to the US Military through our partner network. From WWI to Operation Iraqi Freedom, when a soldier laces up for duty, there is a very good chance he is putting on a boot made from S.B. Foot leather.
STYLE NO. #9075: CLASSIC MOC
Modeled after Red Wing’s original work boot style, the 9075 is a 6-Inch Moc Toe featuring Black Harness leather, white Traction Tred rubber outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Nothing says, “Red Wing”, like a moc toe boot with a white polyurethane outsole. It’s a style we started making in the 1950s for sportsmen but it worked equally well on farms and in factories due to that Traction Tred sole with its minimal tread that sheds mud and provides the underfoot comfort the workday required. The crescent-shaped stitching on the toe was inspired by the construction of the shoes, or “moccasins” originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toe boots have since become a legend.
PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT
Red Wing’s sturdy soles, premium leathers, triple stitching and Goodyear welt construction all work together to make quality boots that will last a lifetime. It takes more than 230 steps to handcraft each pair of Red Wing Shoes but it only takes three steps to keep them clean, conditioned and protected.
