If you didn’t get a chance to visit Red Wing, Minnesota last summer, you missed seeing these fabulous boots. Here are eight creations. The boots are a part of the “2005 Boots About Town,” which were created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Red Wing Shoe Company. These decorated fiberglass boots were located at the beginning of a one-mile route along the Mississippi River on the West End Riverview Skyway Pedestrian Bridge. A few more boots could be found further along the route and some continue to be on display in the downtown area.
It was fun to see all the different works of art. If you’d like to read more about the boots, click this link.

Thanks for sharing this unique anniversary celebration idea, Mary Ann. I’m very familiar with Red Wing boots.
I’m glad you liked it, Mary!
