Leaves turning gold and red, an art festival with 100 juried artists and Red Wing shoes and boots discounted 30 to 70 percent. These are all tempting reasons to drive to Red Wing, Minn. later this week. (It takes about an hour to drive to Red Wing from Minneapolis.)

Red Wing Shoes is having its 4th annual warehouse sale with boots and shoes for men and women. About 15,000 pairs of overstocks and out-of-box shoes will be discounted. Many but not all of the shoes are made in the United States. Heritage, the made-in-USA collection that's popular with celebs such as Ryan Gosling, David Beckham, Chris Brown and Drake, will also be part of the sale.

Sample savings:

2264 Work boot: Originally $275, sale price $100

2263 Work boot: Originally $255, sale price $90

4872 Irish Setter hunt: Originally $205, sale price $100

8111 Iron Ranger Heritage (pictured): Originally $320, sale price $110

875 Classic Moc Heritage: Originally $260, sale price $110

Women's Irish Setter hunting boot: Originally $145, sale price $40.

The sale will be Oct. 8-11 at Plant 1, 229 Potter St., Red Wing, 1-651-388-6233. Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Red Wing retail program manager Mike Rudquist said that all sizes are first come, first served. "Getting to the sale early is best," he recommended.

Red Wing's fall festival of the arts is held Saturday and Sunday.
