Red Wing Heritage has released the 4563 Boot exclusively for Nordstrom, The 8-inch round toe work boot was first introduced in 1919, providing the comfort of an oxford with the durability of a work boot. “The benefit of the new style was the round toe design; achieved by eliminating a seam by using one larger piece of leather versus the previous practice of sewing together two smaller leather pieces.” The end result was a more durable boot and one that looks great as well. It features a 6-inch round-toe build and features a self-cleaning crepe sole with Goodyear welt construction.
Look for these at select Nordstrom locations across the United States including The Grove in Los Angeles, Cherry Creek in Colorado, King of Prussia outside of Philadelphia and Garden State Plaza which is the closest Nordstrom with the 4563 Boot outside of New York City.
