Harkening back to a time when a gentlemen wore functional footwear with a touch of class, the Beckman Collection is named after the founder of the Red Wing Shoe Company; Charles Beckman. Mr. Beckman navigated the muddy streets of Red Wing as part of his daily routine. He wore sturdy boots that could be polished to match his status as a successful Main Street shoe store merchant. Today the Beckman Collection consists of classically styled, comfortable boots that make them the perfect choice for nearly any occasion. Made with Red Wing’s finest Featherstone Leather these boots are built to impress.

Taking care of your leather shoes:
Leather is a natural product and can be fragile if not cared for correctly.
By following the simple rules below you can improve the longevity and durability of your leather shoes.
Ideally alternate your shoes with a 2nd pair to ensure they are not worn on successive days. By doing this you will allow the upper leather to relax, any perspiration from the days wear to dissipate and the leather to dry.
If you are caught out in the rain, it is very important to allow your shoes to dry naturally for as long as is needed, never try and accelerate the drying process by exposing them to direct heat as this could cause the natural leather upper and sole to dry out and crack.
To support the leather upper and keep the shape of the shoes when they are not being worn you can pack them with newspaper or buy a shoe tree.
Clean your shoes regularly. Water and dirt can ruin the finish and shorten the life of your shoes. Remove surface debris and dust using a soft cloth. To nourish the leather, select a natural beeswax polish in a colour that most closely matches your shoes
