The Red Wing 8-Inch 877 Moc Toe aka. Irish Setter is certainly the most iconic Red Wing shoe, worn by millions of American hunters, farmers and construction workers since 1953. It’s eight inches of premium Red Wing Oro Legacy leather combined with Goodyear welt construction, a Traction Tred outsole and triple stitched quality.
This boot is patterned after style no. 877, a style that elevated the Red Wing brand to worldwide renown. First introduced in the early 1950’s, it was made with russet colored leather, tanned by using the sap of sequoia bark. The process yielded a rich color that was very close to the coat of an Irish Setter hunting dog. These boots provided excellent arch support, and had a light, cushion crepe sole. The 877 and the 875, a 6” version, became overnight sensations among hunters and workers alike. Together the 875 and 877 became Red Wing’s most widely recognized boots and icons for the brand.
Quickly this shoe gained a loyal adherence also from well-known actors. In addition to Steve McQueen, Jack Nicholson made this shoe in the movie "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Cove" to the cult object.
