Red Wing Heritage (Japan) 2906 Lineman Briar Oil Slick

$ 285.00

This style is not eligible for restock until Fall 2016.  

My own 'holy grail' of Red Wing Heritage boots is the Lineman, so what a glorious day it is for SOP to be able to now stock this Japan exclusive boot in two color ways (Oro-Iginal and Briar Oil Slick).  Sizes and quantities are very limited, and neither the Oro nor Briar have ever before been stocked here in the U.S.  

Red Wing issued the original Lineman in 1910 for lineman workers responsible for stringing & repairing electric and phone lines.  The current silhouette is based on a 1940's Lineman, with a few modern tweaks including shortened boot shaft height (from 10" to 6")and use of Traction Tred Wedge Sole (instead of lug sole).  Whether worn for work or general lifestyle use, the extended eyestay makes for a snugger & more customized fit, making it ideal for folks who need maximum comfort & ankle support from standing/ walking on uneven surfaces.  Unfortunately we cannot ship Red Wing Heritage outside of the US and Canada.

Sizing Recommendations:

This style fits large.  Most folks find they need to size down one full size from their average sneaker size (i.e. If you're an 8.5 in PF Flyers, Vans, Nike, then you're most likely a 7.5 in this boot).  Please email info@snakeoilprovisions.com with fit/ sizing questions.
