Big boot comes home to Red Wing
The world's biggest boot celebrated its homecoming Tuesday morning in a parade through downtown Red Wing.
Locals and members of the media lined the streets to gaze at and snap pictures of the 16-foot high boot, manufactured by the Red Wing Shoe Co. The boot is also 20 feet long and 7 feet wide.
"To give you some sense of scale, it would be way too big for the Statue of Liberty to wear," Red Wing Shoe Co. President Dave Murphy said.
