He guys maybe you remember a blog post from July 2015 when I introduced the BUTTS AND SHOULDERS boots. Some days ago my buddy Wouter Munnichs c/o BUTTS AND SHOULDERS and LONG JOHN blog told me that the production of these so nice boots started. After a testing phase on the streets and a lot of positive reactions, they start the first production run which will bring strictly limited 100 pairs to you. These boots are all hand numbered with a unique number – special – great idea, I like this a lot! The Boots are made of natural tanned leather in a small factory in Portugal – for sure made by hand with the “Goodyear Welted” construction. Get your limited pair here: http://www.buttsandshoulders.com. Please check the video below to get some more really interesting impressions of the idea, the making process and more – I am sure, you’ll like it! pics & video | Butts and Shoulders

i am really happy to get one of 60 pairs that came strictly limited to europe, because this boot is an absolut must-have-collector-item. the boot is only available @ RED WING STORES. thx KAY from RW STORE BERLING & HAMBURG for reserving the boot. the 9877 was previously sold in JAPAN beside some other styles in that beautiful color: SEQUOIA GOLD. i did a post in october 2011: BOOT OF THE DAY | #91 | LIMITED RED WING BOOT 9871. the 9877 features some details of the first IRISH SETTER production in 1952. so the SEQUOIA colored leather is the original one followed by the famous oro-iginal. only at the top of right boot there are stamped RED WING letters: no corporate wing logo on the boot except the sole which is exactly the same on both boots. inside the 9877 there is the old version of the IRISH SETTER tag – beautiful! boot and RED WING SHOE experts sure will notice the square stitched corners where the leather is fixed to the tongue – an outstanding detail. the boot comes with heavy leather laces and in a wonderful IRISH SETTER labeled box. by the way, the 877 has on another very nice detail: on every eyelet the letters RED WING are engraved. the 877 will leave my collection. my friend PZ will adopt this really nice walked in boot. so i know these boots will be in good hands … pics | LTG
