This was a lot of fun to see. Also indoors, on the second floor, there is a museum of Red Wing boots. There are displays about the boots' history, how the boots are made, and a Hall of Fame of boots from real working people.

[Dale, 03/05/2011]

The boot spends most of its time indoors, making outdoor appearances for parades and special events.

Big boot.

World's Largest Boot

Similar to the Grand Canyon, photos and words alone fail to capture the grandeur and majesty of this leather leviathan. The boot is constructed exactly like the actual boots, so you can smell the leather used in the construction, experience the heft of the massive laces and feel the cool touch of the metal eyelets.

Waxing poetic about a big boot seems odd, but this is a very cool roadside attraction!

There's also a nice gift shop, and you're sure to find your size if shopping for a boot. Make sure to take the elevator downstairs where all the sale items are located.
