In perpetuity through force or collective nod
Holding on so tight
That we forget it is not ours.

So Long Red Wing

Dear David,

I bought my first pair of Red Wing Boots in 1988 to work on the Aggie Bonfire. They have protected my feet on so many occasions that I eventually started wearing them everyday, everywhere, and for everything. I have swayed numerous friends and family to start enjoying your quality boots. I have even convinced wardrobe to allow me to wear them in several national commercials and the films “Where the Heart Is”, “Brothers”, and the upcoming “Bringing Up Bobby”.

Your boots are synonymous with who I am and I have been proud to support your company for over 22 years.

This is why it deeply saddens me to declare that I will never, ever wear your brand as long as your company donates to PAGs like Minnesota Forward and supports candidates like Tom Emmer or anyone against equal rights for all Americans.

I fully support your decision and right to donate to these people, but I cannot even allow a fraction of one cent of my money to make its way into their coffers.

Thank you for 22 really good years.

Kind Regards,
