At the Pop Up Flea this weekend, Red Wing Heritage is launching two new and exclusive (never before sold in the U.S.) styles. Inspired by Red Wing Heritage’s style no. 101, known as The Postman. Originally developed to meet U.S. Postal Service requirements, The Postman style is probably best known for being featured in an iconic advertisement by Norman Rockwell. After many years of status quo, the Postman shape is getting a much desired update. and just in time for summer.

More details about these two new Red Wing styles:

For the first time since 1954, Red Wing is expanding this style. The new Postman are built with the same features as style no. 101, including a dog tail, blind eyelets and Goodyear Welt. They are crafted with premium leathers made at Red Wing’s own S.B. Foot tannery. The cushion crepe outsole gives these boots as much comfort as the original shoe.

    Any idea if these are eventually going to be available in the Sand Mohave color (same as the #3143)?

    I don’t like the The cushion crepe outsole.
