Red Wing Shoe Company has unveiled a new boot designed by women, for women. Dubbed the Tradeswoman, the boot has been created for women in construction, light manufacturing, and warehouse or distribution industries.

Tradeswoman work boots provide a purpose-built fit for female workers’ feet for all-day comfort and safety. "We’ve heard from our female customers about how challenging it can be to find a work boot that fits," said Kristin Hamilton, Senior Product Merchandising Manager at Red Wing Shoe Company, in a release. “By nature, a woman's foot shape, from her arch support to her heel, is very different than a man’s foot, which is why our product team designed the Tradeswoman family. This ensures a comfortable fit for our female customers, and like our other work boots, the Tradeswoman is durable and meets ASTM safety standards.”

The boot features an oblique toe shape with a dual density footbed and PU midsole for underfoot comfort. A VersaTrax rubber outsole in a lug design helps ensure traction while premium waterproof leather guarantees durability. The boots are available with additional safety technologies such as resistance to electrical hazards, non-metallic toe, and waterproofing.
