The Roughneck stands out as a rugged 6-inch moc with rubber lugs for aggressive, all-season traction. True to its name, the Roughneck stands up to heavy wear and lasts for years.
The Roughneck is born from a boot that was first made for oil rig workers in the mid-20th century. The rig workers did notoriously dangerous work and were known by the nickname “roughnecks.” The Roughneck is built tough to honor the legacy of those workers, with a 6-inch height for support and protection, thick, durable leathers and an aggressive lugged Vibram® outsole for grip on any surface. The boot is built with long-lasting Puritan triple-stitch construction and a Goodyear welt that makes 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. As you wear the footwear, the full grain leather upper, insole, and cork midsole will mold to your feet, creating an increasingly personalized fit over time. We recommend trying on footwear in store to ensure proper fit.
