BOOT OF THE DAY | #183 | RED WING SHOES #8807 “THE MAIZE MUSTANG FRANKFURTER” SUPERSOLE® MOC TOE

shit, what a f***ing amazing boot: the RWS 8807. we call this style “FRANKFURTER”. myself i own all 3 available types that you got in the past here in germany (from left to right in the photo below): #8133, #8804 and #8118. i love these styles with the SUPERSOLE® and i found this new “MAIZE MUSTANG” yellow “FRANKFURTER” @ one of the best japanese shops for boots & shoes: THREEWOOD. maybe one day the boot will be available like the new IRISH SETTER 9877 that was japan exclusive before 60 pairs came in a strictly limited version to the RED WING STORES over europe last month. pics | THREEWOOD

as you know i am a RWS SUPERSOLE BOOTS lover. i own a black 8133, a red 8804 and, thx KAMI, a tan suede 8118. this damn fucking nice blue, we call this RWS SUPERSOLE boot style  “FRANKFURTER”, was made by RED WING SHOES in collaboration with BEAMS for their AW 2012 collection. japanese LONG-LOOP offers one piece left in a US 9D for just 217 euros – a really good price for this extraordinary boot. pics | LONG-LOOP


RED WING SHOES “THE SUPERSOLE® TRIO” | BLACK RED GOLD

yes, black, red and gold are the colors of the german flag. AND these are also the colors of my 3 SUPESOLED RED WING SHOES called “FRANKFURTER”. the black one is style #8133, the red one #8804 and the beige or gold one is style #8118. all three boots are of different ages. the #8804 is my oldest with about 20 years, the #8118 is the newest in my cupboard but this one was worn years before and the black #8133 is about one year old. a great trio. one boot is nicer than the other. and i love walking on the SUPERSOLE® – it is so comfortable. pics | LTG


LTG FAVORITES #82 | RED WING SHOES WITH A SUPERSOLE®

KAMI from RED WING STORE FRANKFURT made me a big surprise! some months ago i asked him for an # 8118, because i am a great fan of the called FRANKFURTER RWS boots. they are and were made in three different colors and two leathers. i know that KAMI has an archive in his basement with some old worn and dead stock RWS – so, why not asking? he told me, that maybe there is one but he couldn’t promise. three weeks ago i helped KAMI in layouting an advertisement over night for his distribution firm. when i saw him the next time, it was at an event in the context of the MTV EUROPEAN AWARDS at B74, he took me aside and told me about a surprise for me. holy shit – he gave me an #8118. i was speakless because i know that the boot isn’t available anymore and i forgot asking him for the boot at this moment. the one he gave me is a vintage one, a return because of a small defect of the SUPERSOLE. KAMI and his staff restored the boot and it looks really really good. what a great piece. KAMI thank you so much again! a something special memory to your person – indeed. pics | LTG


BOOT OF THE DAY | #130 | VINTAGE RED WING “FRANKFURTER” SAND ROUGH OUT # 8118

he guys, if anyone will find an #8118 in 9.5D please send me an email – QUICK! i am so sad, because i owned this boot 20 years ago and i sold it! what a mistake!! at this time i did not like the SUPER SOLE anymore, but today i love it – great look! phantastic. this #8118 i found on japanese LOSTANDFOUND site. it is sold. from 1990 in absolute perfect condition; for luck it was a 8.5D.  my wife has had the same boot: her first RED WING BOOT ever. bought at B-EBENE frankfurt, main, from KAMI. before, we were at the RED WING STORE frankfurt. at this time the shop was owned by a grumpy american and he just told us “Ick harbe no schuhs for frauen …” and send us away. when we were at home i impregnated the boots with a BLACK spray by mistake. with the first spray kick the toe was black – what a disaster! so i sprayed on the other boot the same dosage, took a sandpaper and rubed the boots off: after that they looked more than perfect. hm … long time ago …  pics | LOSTANDFOUND
