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 everyone's favorite Oro-Iginal. When we were granted permission by Red Wing Heritage Japan to carry the Lineman, we become the first US retailer ever to stock the 2904 and 2906 color ways. And now, THEY'RE BACK!!
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org with fit/ sizing questions.
