The 8857 Classic Moc in Loden Abilene leather features the iconic Traction Tred outsole, all-around Goodyear welt, and Puritan triple stitch construction. The Loden Abilene is a dry-tanned roughout leather. Roughout leather is the reverse side of full grain, making it an extremely durable, low-maintenance leather, providing a unique suede-like finish.
Red Wing began making moc-toe boots in the 1950s for sportsmen. Farm and factory workers quickly took to the boots for their all-day comfort and lasting durability. The crescent-shaped toe stitching is inspired by the construction of moccasins originally worn by the North American Algonquin Indians. The Classic Moc Toes have since become a legend.
