STYLE NO. 2942 : ROUGHNECK
Famous for its clean lines, simple construction and classic round toe styling, the 2942 features Copper Rough & Tough leather, a durable Vibram Lug outsole, triple stitched quality and Goodyear welt construction.
THE HISTORY BEHIND THE STYLE
In America’s 20th century, the bold and hardworking men who labored on oil rigs had one of the most dangerous occupations around. In order to do their jobs in these hazardous conditions the men needed to be tough and have a taste for challenging work. These traits were how oil rig workers received the nickname, “Roughnecks.” Inspired by these hardworking roughnecks, Red Wing’s Round Lug styles were built not only to look tough, but act tough. Their distinctively rugged appearance is enhanced by our classic Roughneck leather.
