Red Wing Shoe Company, a global leader in the footwear industry for more than 110 years, launches its lightest work collection yet – the Zero-G Lite family. With the performance attributes of a work boot, the Zero-G Lite collection redefines the typical safety-toe shoe without sacrificing safety, durability and superior performance.

The Zero-G Lite is designed for light-duty industrial jobs inclusive of warehouse, distribution, light manufacturing, service and office to floor roles. Offering a modern casual design, the incredibly lightweight Zero-G Lite collection offers all-day comfort for workers who are on their feet continuously – both on the job and outside of work.

“Our customers expect their workwear to have the same style and comfort as any shoe they would wear off the job site,” said Kristin Hamilton, senior product merchandising manager at Red Wing Shoe Company. “Red Wing designed the Zero-G Lite collection to perform like a work shoe while offering modern style and all-day comfort. This allows our customers to seamlessly transition between work, home and anything in between.” 

Key performance and style features of the Zero-G Lite collection include: 

  • Weight: Styles range in weight from a low 11.7 ounces to 14.2 ounces for a single shoe 
  • Outsole: The Ultra-Light Sole offers incredible slip resistance as well as oil, gas and chemical resistance
  • Innovation: Red Wing is the only company in the United States to offer the innovative XL EXTRALIGHTâIndustrial Plus Compound that contributes to key features of the Ultra-Light Sole* 
  • Comfort: An EVA footbed provides high-rebound cushioning at key strike points, controls odor and is sustainably made with green materials
  • Safety protection: Select styles offer a low-profile aluminum safety toe and are available with either electrical hazard or static dissipative protection
  • Styles: Offered in premium full-grain leather chukkas, oxford and slip-on style options 
  • Industries: Designed for indoor light-duty work including warehousing, distribution, light manufacturing, service and office to floor positions
