The Red Wing Shoes 8886 Classic Moc Toe in Copper Rough & Tough is a Classic Red Wing Shoes Mocassin style and is made in Red Wing, Minnesota. The Red Wing 6″ Moc Toe boot was originally designed for hunters and farmers in the early 1950s. The Red Wing Moc-toe was built to withstand hard labor and harsh weather conditions. The name Red Wing ‘Moc Toe’ derives from ‘Moccasin’, the traditional Algonquian Indian word for the U-shape design of the toe. The Red Wing Shoes 8886 is the result of constant research and development in the Red Wing tannery. One of the latest creations of the S.B. Foot Tannery is the Copper Rough & Tough leather. The color of the leather resembles stone coal, perfectly referring to the rich heritage of the Red Wing Shoe brand. The Red Wing 8886 boot has a Black Cushion Crepe Wedge outsole with Traction Tred and provides maximum grip and outstanding comfort. The Red Wing 8890 originally comes with gold tan taslan round laces.
