Red Wing Shoes Stores

A Smart Investment Opportunity

With more than 100 years of footwear experience, we’ll be with you every step of the way. Red Wing Stores are dealerships, NOT franchises. There are no franchise fees, no marketing fund contributions and no monthly royalties. From market analysis, to store build-out, to grand opening, Red Wing Shoe Company is by your side every step of the way.
