Spirit Lake (Men’s Brown Lace-Up Boots) 

IND Redwing Boots 0038 LargeIn homage to the dedicated men and women in Spirit Lake, Iowa, who build each and every Indian Motorcycle® with a passion for quality and true American craftsmanship, this boot is modeled after Red Wing Shoes’ popular Iron Ranger. It’s an 8-inch boot developed to provide a stable fit and firm ankle protection, with a Vibram® 430 sole for superb grip and abrasion resistance and features a double layer leather toe cap for added protection. The premium Red Wing Shoes® Amber Portage leather, gunmetal eyelets and all-brown stitching make these boots a favorite for around-town styling, comfort and rugged support.

Even during the Depression, she and her husband made periodic trips to Springfield to buy new Indian Motorcycles and they would ride them back to Owatonna. This boot is based on Red Wing Shoes’ Engineer boot. This 11-inch pull-on boot features plain toe styling, Heeled Oil Resistant Cushion Crepe sole to provide grip and lighter weight, and an instep strap to adjust the fit.
