The Roughneck was born from a boot first made for oil rig workers in the mid-20th century. Rig workers, nicknamed "Roughnecks," were known for their notoriously dangerous work. Built upon their legacy, the 6-inch durable leather provided support and protection, and the aggressive lugged Vibram® outsole offered grip on any surface. In addition, the boot is built with long-lasting Puritan triple-stitch construction and a Goodyear welt, making it fully resoleable for years of reliable wear.
A new pair of Red Wing Heritage footwear should fit comfortably tight on the foot, with enough room to freely wiggle toes. As you wear the footwear, the full grain leather upper, insole, and cork midsole will mold to your feet, creating an increasingly personalized fit over time. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.
