Red Wing 8833 Moc Toe Details
Red Wing boots have always been designed primarily for rugged use on farms, as well as for the industries of the region, and have been solidly made accordingly. One design, however, stands out for its versatility in all applications. The Moc Toe Boots have achieved iconic status with their namesake Moccasin construction, in which the U-shaped leather is stitched to a leather leaf on top. The design is the oldest and most popular, and represents Red Wing Shoes like no other shoe. An advantage of the design is that the shoe also adjusts well in width, making it extremely comfortable. At Red Wing, they combined the Moc Toe with the lightweight Crepe sole, which prevents dirt from settling into the grippy but flat tread. This combination became a bestseller and is more versatile than any other model.
Designed for the Moc Toe boot construction of the Model 633, Last No. 23 was developed as early as 1930. Most Moc Toe boots are based on this proven last.
Sizes & Fit
If you do not have the opportunity to have your individual size measured at a Red Wing store, we recommend ordering the shoes in the appropriate size. The shoes come with a flat leather, or Texon® insole that covers a custom moldable cork midsole. If you prefer an additional insole, we recommend to choose a half size (US size) more.
Hawthorne Abilene Roughout leather
Red Wing's top-selling model appears this season in the Hawthorne Abilene Roughout leather that, according to records in the Red Wing archives, was first introduced in 1959 and last appeared in 1989 under the Irish Setter branding on a Japanese 6-inch Moc. The special leather made this limited edition iconic in Japan, and now shows up on the market again for the first time on Style No. 8833. The summery, bright Hawthorne Abilene Roughout - quality develops a unique patina over time, which of course makes the shoe perfectly combinable with autumnal looks.
