Boots tell a story...Here's the story of mine

 Boots tell a story...Here's the story of mine

After my great grandfather died, I received ⁣⁣⁣some money from the inheritance he left our family. With the money came instructions, “Purchase something to remember him by.”⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
My great grandfather fought in World War II and was fiercely proud to be an American. After working to found and establish a veteran’s cemetery, he earned the nickname, “Mr. Veteran.”⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
He left behind quite a legacy. To honor him, I wanted to purchase something that would last for years. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
The history and legacy of Red Wing Shoes is well known, but what I admire about the boots are the commitment to quality they represent and their origins of being Made in America. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
To me, these factors mattered and I know they mattered to my great grandfather. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It may be frivolous to compare boots to a person’s legacy but every time I wear them they’re paying tribute to the legacy left behind from my great grandfather. ⁣⁣⁣
