When I began walking in Minnesota I didn't know I'd be passing thru the city of Red Wing, the home of Red Wing Shoes and the Worlds largest work boot. The shoe company has supplied me with shoes for my recent walks, but when I showed up at the Museum and store I had every intention of buying a pair, or two, of my favorite walking gear, Vasque. I tried on a new style at the recommendation of the sales clerk who was very attentive to my needs and she knew her product well. I then reserved two pairs and was getting ready to finish my days walk. Before I left, the helpful staff contacted JoAnn Winger, she is the Red Wing executive who had arranged to send boots to me from New England to Florida. JoAnn had been out of the office for the weekend for hours but took the time to allow the staff at the museum/store to give me the boots at no cost. Once again the helpful folks at Red Wing went above and beyond to help. Words can not express my thanks. Without Red Wing Shoes I would not be where I am today.
