Red Wing Roughneck 6-in Boot in Briar

Red Wing Shoes


 *Please note that we are only able to ship Red Wing within the United States*

The Roughneck stands out as a rugged 6-inch moc with Vibram®'s original lug outsoles for aggressive, all-season traction. True to its name, the Roughneck stands up to heavy wear and lasts for years.

The Roughneck was born from a boot first made for oil rig workers in the mid-20th century. Rig workers, nicknamed "Roughnecks," were known for their notoriously dangerous work. Built upon their legacy, the 6-inch durable leather provided support and protection, and the aggressive lugged Vibram® outsole offered grip on any surface. In addition, the boot is built with long-lasting Puritan triple-stitch construction and a Goodyear welt, making it fully resoleable for years of reliable wear.



  • A new pair of Red Wing Heritage footwear should fit comfortably tight on the foot, with enough room to freely wiggle toes. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.



  • The no. 23 last was created in the 1950s and is Red Wing’s most iconic.
  • Includes extra room in the forefoot and instep to fit a variety of foot shapes.
