Portraits of a community:
Red Wing

There aren’t many small, rural towns with an international brand.

But Red Wing, Minnesota, is one of them. 

Chances are you might even own a pair of the classic, durable boots and shoes that have made the town’sT name famous around the globe. Or, if not, you’ve at least heard of Red Wing Shoe Co. — one of the Mississippi River port town’s iconic local businesses along with the likes of Riedell Skates, Central Research Laboratories, and S.B. Foot Tanning Co. The manufacturing heritage also includes a division of the multinational giant 3M. Together, their presence and products bring a renown that few cities of its size can match.

And yet, somehow, Red Wing manages to be so much more than that.
