BOOT CONSTRUCTION refers to the method used to attach the completed Upper to the Bottom. Red Wing uses various boot construction methods, which are determined by how the boots will be used and in what conditions the boots are designed to perform. It‘s another way we consider every detail to ensure premium performance on the job. WELT CONSTRUCTION: Durable and strong, holds shape well over time, generally repairable, ideal for use in heavy duty applications. PROCESS: 1. Welt is stitched to upper and insole. 2. Welt is stitched to midsole. 3. Outsole is stitched to midsole. CEMENT CONSTRUCTION: Lightweight flexible comfort, ideal for medium to light duty work. PROCESS: 1. Upper is cemented to bottom of insole. 2. Outsole is cemented to upper/insole. DIRECT ATTACH CONSTRUCTION: Lightweight flexible comfort, durable, great for tough work conditions. PROCESS: 1. Upper is cemented to bottom of insole. 2. Depending on the size & style, a specific outsole is molded to the upper, perfectly encompassing it. WELT TO DIRECT ATTACH CONSTRUCTION: Sure-footed stability, long-lasting performance. PROCESS: 1. Welt is stitched to the upper and insole. 2. Sole is moulded directly to the welt and insole. OPANKA CONSTRUCTION: Hand-stitched construction, lightweight and flexible comfort, light duty work. PROCESS: 1. A curved needle that handstitches the upper directly into the midsole. 2. Outsole is cemented to midsole. STROBEL CONSTRUCTION: Lightweight flexibility, good for light duty work. PROCESS: 1. Strobel insole is stitched to the upper. 2. Existing sole is cemented to the upper/insole. LASTS The last is the solid form around which a shoe is moulded. The fit of a shoe depends on its design, shape and volume. Lasts must accommodate the anatomical features of the foot, while shaping the finished appearance of the boot. The dimensions of the last correspond to the size and width of the boot. One last can be used in many styles, resulting in different looking, but similar fitting boots. If a customer previously fit into a shoe made with a certain last, they should fit into any style built around that last.width length volume 2 1 3 2 1 Welt Midsole Outsole Upper Insole Footbed 2 1 3 2 1 2 1 2 1 Outsole Upper Insole Footbed 2 1 3 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 Outsole Upper Insole Footbed 2 1 3 2 1 Upper Insole Footbed Welt Outsole 2 1 3 2 1 2 1 2 1 Upper Insole Footbed Midsole Outsole 2 1 3 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 Upper Strobel Insole Footbed Midsole Outsole 228 32 32 12 32 32 12
