In 1954, Minnesota-based Red Wing Shoes built a sturdy black oxford shoe for the Postal Service. The style No. 101 featured a smooth black upper, moldable insole and durable outsole, and was designed to stand up to daily use on mail routes. Red Wing Heritage recently revived the style, updating it with a black cushion crepe wedge sole. They also created a chukka and boot, based on the original model, to complement the low-profile oxford.
Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on a pair of ridiculously sharp Postman Boots. The American-made style features a 6” black leather upper from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company and a black wedge sole. The toe box is distinctly different than other Red Wing boots, making it a versatile option to dress up or dress down. Available in sizes 7 to 13, this boot now costs just $135 — that’s less than many sneakers.
