COATINGSPRO JULY 2018 25 BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY Wall of Honor Created for Skilled Labor Stories Red Wing Shoe Co. unveiled its Wall of Honor, a monument featuring epic stories about skilled laborers and their Red Wing boots. e wall pays tribute to those who have handled tough jobs, such as delivering goods and services across ports and seaways as a U.S. Merchant Marine; surviving jobsite accidents; and even cleanup at Ground Zero after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. After receiving ~500 submissions, Red Wing selected 32 to highlight, along with their boots, on a wall at its flagship store in Red Wing, Minnesota. Meanwhile, a virtual version is available at the company's website. Submissions for the 2019 Wall of Honor are currently being taken.
