There are few pieces of footwear as recognizable as the storied Red Wing boot, with its signature light-colored lug sole and tough-as-nails leather upper.

This style of boot is having a resurgence, and not just at work sites. They're comfortable, built for gnarly weather, and retain just enough DNA from a classic dress shoe to feel at home in the office. Here are our favorite new variations.
