Red Wing Shoe Company has introduced EXOS Lite, the lightest work boot in Red Wing’s history.

Created from Red Wing’s industry insights and expectations for lightweight and comfortable safety footwear, the EXOS Lite line delivers on those needs without sacrificing the safety performance and craftsmanship expected from Red Wing Shoe Company.

“Red Wing heard from safety professionals and skilled labourers all over the U.S. about their wish for a work boot that performed in demanding environments without weighing them down throughout the day.”

“We listened and applied those insights to the new EXOS Lite line,” said Kristin Hamilton, senior product merchandising manager at Red Wing Shoe Company.

“In order to create our lightest work boot ever, we used new safety materials and innovative manufacturing techniques while still meeting and exceeding safety standards.”

The ATSM- and CSA-compliant EXOS Lite is designed for indoor and outdoor medium-duty jobs in warehousing, distribution, construction, light manufacturing and service environments.
