The 8859 6-inch Classic Moc in Navy Portage leather features the iconic Traction Tred outsole, all-around Goodyear welt, and Puritan triple stitch with distinctive gold & tan Taslan laces. Navy Portage is a Red Wing leather that is specially tanned with UV protecting chemicals to prevent fading from sun exposure.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
We began making moc-toe boots in the 1950s for sportsmen. Farm and factory workers quickly took to the boots for their all-day comfort and lasting durability. The crescent-shaped toe stitching is inspired by the construction of moccasins originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. Our Classic Moc Toes have since become a legend.
S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for oil-tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing’s 108+ year history.
