—01. Black Chaparral leather.
This newly designed style based on Red Wing's ever-popular Postman Oxford has just been released at a handful of retailers. Favoured by mail carriers and policemen for its comfort and durability, the original 101 model debuted in 1954 and went on to become one of the best selling shoes in the brand's history. The 9197 takes this reference and applies it to a 6-inch boot. The cushion crepe wedge sole and goodyear welt construction are retained, but the added ankle coverage makes for a unique take on a time-tested Red Wing classic.
