in Copper Rough and Tough


First introduced in 1952 and built for comfort ever since

Originally introduced to Red Wing’s line up to outfit mill workers, the Rover is built for comfort and durability. The oil-tanned, full-grain leather is as tough as it gets and the crepe rubber wedge sole is soft, springy and shock-absorbent.

Red Wings are known for their longevity, especially if you take the time to care for them properly, so don’t forget to pick up a care kit to keep ‘em fresh and conditioned for many miles to come.


  • Made from full-grain oil-tanned leather from S.B. Foot Tanning leather, a Red Wing owned-and-operated tanning company based in Red Wing, Minnesota
  • Goodyear welt construction allows for resoling when necessary, extending the life of the boots
  • Crepe rubber wedge sole for a relaxed ride and all-day comfort
  • Water, stain and perspiration resistant premium leather
  • Dull gilt eyelets and speed hooks
  • Tan/gold taslan laces
  • Made in the USA at Red Wing’s factory in Red Wing, Minnesota


  • Oil-tanned leather

S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is best known for oil-tanned leather which is used to build a variety of timeless Red Wing styles. This leather is water, stain and perspiration resistant, and has a more natural look and feel because less finishing materials have been applied, allowing its natural beauty to shine through. Oil-tanned leather is exceptionally durable and has been used to build countless work boots throughout Red Wing's 108+ year history.


  • We recommend taking one half size down from your normal sneaker size
  • For example, if you typically wear a 9.5, take a 9 in Red Wing boots
  • When you first put them on, your Red Wings should have a snug fit in the upper with enough room to wiggle your toes. Over time the full-grain leather upper and leather footbed will mold to your foot for a custom fit
