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


BOOT OF THE DAY | #174 | RED WING SHOES x BEAMS: THE BLUE SUEDE “FRANKFURTER”

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


BOOT OF THE DAY | #143 | RED WING SHOES X BEAMS SUPERSOLE BOOTS

damn, these # 8803 are really awesome. i am a great fan of RWS’ so called “FRANKFURTER” with the famous black SUPERSOLE®; my first RED WING boot ever was a # 8804 i still own. so it is for sure that a black # 8133 has found its way to my boot closet too. since a while i am searching for the beige rough out # 8118 in 9.5D. yesterday my buddy and copywriter PETER told me about a dark grey rough out “FRANKFURTER” he found on a blog site. he told me that this boot would be a result from a collaboration between japanese BEAMS and RWS. so i took a look today at the BEAMS site. and wow, there is not only a dark grey one but another black rough suede too with style number # 8805. what a luck, both are sold out. pics | BEAMS



MEMOIRS – GOOD OLD BOOTS | RED WING SHOE STORE FRANKFURT 16TH FEBRUARY | PART II

the evening time was running through so fast. just a few “SAUER GESPRITZE” two shots of STETSON WHISKEY … STETSON? i have to ask KAMI for the whiskey: it was STETSON labelled, genial smooth and its caramel taste was awesome: i want more of this! meeting a lot of friends and got to know some new friends, especially ESTHER, WHYTSE and MATTHIJS from the european RED WING HERITAGE headquater were so kind, wonderful, funny and liable – great! i have had a lot of interesting talks about boots, RWS and some other unimportant things that make life so livable if you understand what i mean … beside there was the exhibition: great stuff to look at and to read the stories. thx the RED WING STORE FRANKFURT TEAM for the evening. bad pics | LTG made with my new mini LUMIX with the wrong tune-up – damn …
