Sears has extended its cornerstone Craftsman brand to footwear by partnering with Minnesota-based Red Wing Shoe Co Inc to launch a line of co-branded work boots.

The Craftsman by Red Wing line will be sold in 470 Sears' full-line department stores and priced between $150 to $170 per pair. They are being marketed to carpenters, roofers, construction workers and other trade professionals.

Red Wing shoes are currently sold at 430 company-owned stores and more than 4,000 dealers in the US, but have never before appeared in a national department store chain.
