“If the shoe fits ...”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Drive south along the Mississippi from Minneapolis on Bob Dylan's iconic Highway 51 and before long you will come to the lovely little town of Red Wing. Red Wing Shoes store and museum is slap bang in the middle of the town and is wonderful! A great little museum (includes the world's biggest boot!) and they make the finest boots and shoes in the world. Well worth a stop!

Reviewed 13 September 2013

It is amazing to see how big this boot really is. Come a see it. The museum is really interesting and definitely worth visiting while you are in Red Wing. Cathy made our visit really special.

“You need to see the size of this boot!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Sure, Red Wing shoes and boots are expensive, But even if you don't plan buying any, go to the store on Main Street and see this huge boot that would easily fit on the foot of the Jolly Green Giant! If you go around the heel of the boot, a staircase will take you to the outlet store in the lower level. There were some real bargains to be found on the day we were there on outlet clearance shoes and boots for both men and women...I am talking more than 50% off on some items.

If you're interested in the history of Red Wing boot making, on this lower level there is a short documentary on a flat screen TV in a separate viewing room.

“A bit of fun to tour the Shoes and the Museam”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Red Wing is nothing like any of the big cities. It is a very small town, with a lttle bit of industries such as Leather boots making, etc. I guess in a small town as RW, a visit to the Shoes Store/Museum can well be a must and you will not miss it as it is in a main street.
