RED WING SHOES | RED WING HERITAGE’ 5 NEW POSTMAN SERIES

yesterday i got the information from the RWS HERITAGE central europe, that the 5 new POSTMAN styles are now available @ the RWS dealers around europe. so one of the most beloved but at the same time hated styles the #101 now gets a fashion touch – with all this new colors and mostly because of the white RWS cushion crepe outsole which is really important for a lot, maybe the most of all the RWS lovers. for me, there is only one POSTMAN: the #101. here some information from RWS HERITAGE: “Red Wing Heritage proudly presents 5 new Postman shoes,  inspired by style no.101,  Red Wing’s original postman shoe. Designed, to meet Postal Service requirements,  the 101 is sturdy, sleek and simplistic and these characteristics served America’s, mailmen well. First introduced in 1954, Red Wing is now expanding on this style with five more casual variations. The new Postman shoes are built using the same leather upper as the 101 including a dog tail, blind eyelets and a Goodyear, Welt. Premium Red Wing leathers,  made at Red Wing Shoe’s very own S.B. Foot tannery are used to craft the new, Postman. The cushion crepe outsole gives these boots as much comfort as the 101, allowing for the longer walks,  as a, postman would., The Postman comes in 5 colors. Three oil-tanned leathers; Oro-Iginal, Charcoal Rough & Tough, Amber Harness and two Suede Roughout leathers: Olive Mohave and Blueberry Muleskinner.” some more pics from the #101 at LTG you will find here: RED WING SHOES # 101 POSTMAN and there RED WING SHOES | CUSTOMIZED POSTMAN #101. pics | RED WING HERITAGE & LTG
