We owe big part for the brand's success in the States to the productive relationships formed with one of our first of retailers there, Burg & Schild in New York. One of the partners there, Kay Knipschild, endeavored on getting the Red Wing Heritage shops opened across the USA: first in Boston, then New York city, and finally in the nation's capital – Washington DC. He brought with him Christian Josh Heise (Josh to us), whom we had met during his work as an Amandaistrative top manager at Burg & Schild.
