USA : Shoe company Red Wing makes the world's largest boot – enters Guinness Book

9th February, 2005
Minnesota based company - Red Wing Shoes will celebrate its centenary with the unveiling of the world's largest boot next week.

The company employees worked overnight for a year to create this record size company's classic workboot No. 877, using ladders, cranes and special rigging, built as a supersized "638-D" replica. Gaining immediate recognition in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's largest shoe, the boot stands 16 feet tall and 20 feet long. It took 80 cowhides, 1,200 feet of rope and 300 pounds of adhesives and its shoelace is 104 feet long.

Employees said everything about the massive replica was properly scaled, so if a 12-story-tall man came to town they would have a roughly $100,000, ready-to-wear boot for him.
