Red Wing is introducing a new waterproof and wool-lined boot called the Heritage Ice Cutter that is inspired and modeled after the boots worn by ice cutters in the 40s. The boot is constructed from Otter Tail leather which is known for withstanding snow, ice, and salt in even the most brutal conditions and combinations (it’s the same material that helped the Bering Bridge Expedition team go from Russia to Alaska in 1989).

Word is that parts of the Northern US and Midwest are supposed to see one of the harshest winters in recent history. If that’s you, I’d highly recommend picking up a pair of these. Check them out here.
