New shoe store opens in Wausau


WAUSAU (WAOW) -- A shoe company that's been around for 100 years opened a store in Wausau.

Red Wing Shoes makes boots for tough jobs, like construction work.

Store leaders say the majority of their shoes are made in the USA and focus on the safety of their customers.

They say it takes about 100 people to hand-make each pair.

The store opened at the beginning of the month.

The manager says they've been getting great feedback from customers.

"They are just genuinely happy to be able to get a product that they have been wearing for a really long time," said Dennis Garton the manager at Red Wing Shoes. "They don't have to travel 100 miles to get the style they are looking for. "

They also have a special machine to analyze your feet.

The shoes are costly but the manager says you are paying for quality.

It's on the west side of town on Stewart Avenue.
