6" Postman Boot 9197
STYLE NO. 9197 : POSTMAN
Inspired by the 101, the 9197 is a 6-inch style rather than an oxford, and is crafted with Black Chaparral leather, a black cushion crepe and wedge outsole for a classic look.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
Designed to meet Postal Service requirements, the 101 is sturdy, sleek and simplistic and these characteristics served America’s mailmen well. First introduced in 1954, Red Wing expands on this style with the more casual variations. Built using the same leather upper as the 101 including a dog tail, blind eyelets and a Goodyear Welt. The cushion crepe outsole gives these boots as much comfort as the 101, allowing for the longer walks, as a postman would.
