LTG VISITING KLAUS @ VOLLS.DE | A FRIDAY TRADITION

yesterday i did the same i always try to do on a friday afternoons: just for one hour, if i have the opportunity, gladly for more than just one fucking hour i visit my buddy KLAUS @ volls.de talking about the important things the last week happened and discussing the new stuff that came in. so it happened yesterday. there was a bit more than one hour but there was no time to talk because of the high customer frequence. maybe i should plan my visits for friday mornings at 08:00 am. but i could take a look at the new NIGEL CABOURN collection KLAUS ordered and some other nice stuff like the new BIRKENSTOCK “ BOSTON”, some new RED WING BOOTS. the IRON RANGER BROGUES, the #8196 and the 2940 arrived! and i must tell you that the BOSTONS are really great. myself i won tow pairs since a long time and they look pretty cool with some rugged denim and shirts. so i saw them BRETT VIBERG wearing and the guys from MERZ B. SCHWANEN @ BREAD & BUTTER this summer. a really cool and comfortable alternative to “un-booty” days. i think KLAUS will launch his online shop soon. pics | LTG

RED WING SHOES | NEW SPECIAL STYLES LAUNCHED

news directly from the europe RED WING SHOES central: 3 new RED WING SPECIALS just arrived. RWS says: “After a successful launch in Japan, three special pairs of boots will be sold exclusively at Red Wing Shoe stores in Europe this fall/winter season. This special launch consists of two 8“ Round Toe’s and a Steel Toe Engineer. First released in 1955,  the Round Toe with style number #708 was initially developed for work. So, considering that Red Wing’s work boots were originally made with heavy cork soles, the lightness of the lightweight cushion crepe sole surprised many workers at that time. The #2940 uses the 708’s leather from its latter period, Oro-Russet. #2941 uses Dark Chocolate “Cache” which is similar to the 708’s leather as presented in 1955. The 2972 steel toe Engineer boot, originally designed for train engineers,  is a true heavy-duty boot. It comes in Copper Rough & Tough leather, on an oil resistant neoprene cord outsole and protects your feet with a steel toe cap. These 3 exclusive pairs of boots are available in Red Wing’s Stores in Amsterdam, Berlin, Frankfurt and Hamburg.”
i love the fifties round toe work boot style most. kami, please take away a #2940 in 9.5D for me! thx.
