The Billy Boot from Red Wing Heritage just got reincarnated nearly a century after its introduction. Named after Bill Sweasy, the son of Red Wing’s then-owner, the boot was originally designed for boys and came with a knife pocket as well as an accompanying jack-knife.

This updated version stands at eight inches tall and features a moccasin-style toebox, Goodyear welt construction on top of a Vibram sole, speed hooks, leather laces and Red Wing’s famed Black Klondike leather, which will patina to beautiful brown undertones.
