Big Boot on show:Red Wing Shoe Co

If you were in Red Wing, Minnesota on Tuesday you might have seen the world's biggest boot being trailed through the streets. It stands 16-foot high boot is 20 feet long and 7 feet wide and was made by the Red Wing Shoe Co. The giant boot was in transit to Red Wing’s new shoe factory. The boot was created in 2005 to celebrate the company's 100 anniversary and was on tour across North America before going into storage. Now its permanent home will be the new Red Wing Shoe store and museum. Also on display from 3rd August will be original Shoe advertisements created by Norman Rockwell. Now that I would like to see.
