Red Wing Shoes dug deep into their archive to update their popular Beckman boots with the Flatbox edition that eschews the usual rugged and solid box-toe construction. This style was a cost cutting measure used from the 1920s to 1960s so more people could afford the shoes. However, the result is increased comfort due to the lack of rigid toe area as well as a more casual silhouette due to the less bulbous front. The Beckman Flatbox are also finished off with non-slip Gro Cord Medallion soles that were used in the 1920s – 1930s and were recently brought back into production two years ago.
The Beckman Flatbox will be available at: The Red Wing Shoe Store (Singapore); Rugged Gentleman Shoppe (Singapore); COVER by Crossover (Malaysia); Pronto Denim Stores (Thailand); and Limbro Denim Stores (Indonesia).
