The 4563 Red Wing Boot Giveaway

Red Wing recently released a new boot as part of their awesome Heritage collection: the 4563. First developed for farmers, Red Wing introduced the 8-inch round toe work boot in 1919. The combination of two traditional styles, round toe boots provided the comfort of an oxford with the durability of a work boot. The round toe design made the boots more durable, as it was achieved by eliminating a seam by using one larger piece of leather instead of sewing together two smaller pieces.

Another great heritage feature of the 4563 is Red Wing’s signature Traction Tred sole, which was used on their first Irish Setter boots made in the 1950s. Farmers and upland game hunters loved the self-cleaning sole because it would keep the mud off their boots as they worked.

These boots go great with a pair of jeans, whether you’re at a worksite or out on the town. And best of all they’re Made in America, from leather crafted at a tannery in Minnesota.

The 4563 is available exclusively at Nordstroms, but Red Wing offered me a pair to give away to a lucky AoM reader as well.

6426 Solomon January 11, 2012 at 4:57 pm

I used to take a daily walk with my dog through the woods that took about 1-2 hours. We always would end up going off the beaten path, and it was great to see her with so much energy in her age. During the colder months I always wore boots. Every now and then I take a walk through the woods and remember my dog. I would certainly wear them during those excursions.

6427 Erik Curren January 11, 2012 at 5:09 pm

I love these boots and would be proud to wear them anywhere. But I’m running for my local city council. That means going door to door for the next five months making the case to my neighbors about why we need to create more local jobs in our small city. I can tell you these boots would help make all those nightly walks up and down our hilly town that much more comfortable and help send the message that I’m serious about real jobs for real people.

6428 Daniel McGrath January 11, 2012 at 5:09 pm

I would wear them all over my travels throughout the Mojave Desert here in Nevada as well as the hiking and camping I enjoy in the Pacific Northwest. These boots are ideal for the damp, mossy woods found throughout Oregon. Also, I’m currently living in a tent and my feet are my only carriage! I do have a postal address however, btw.

Best regards,

Dan

Of all the cool places I would wear these (around the lakes/on the trails of Tennessee) the coolest place would be in my own home so that my boys could see the boots that were like the ones my dad once HAD to wear for his job as a welder. Of all the things I remember growing up, I always thought my dad’s “work boots” were the coolest.
