He guys, I have to clean up my closet – need some space. So you’ll find some boots & shoes @ eBay. I offer some really rarities like the 866 in oro-russet. Shipping international to USA, Japan and the EU. So just send me a PM @ eBay and I will send you the quotes. Thx.
One of my absolute Red Wing favorites is the iconic Moc Toe style #8131. Before handing out my brother his new oro-russet Moc Toe, I had to take some shots – I like the contrast so much. Maybe you wanna check out the “vintage versus new” photos. My rugged boot is from the 90s and when you check the pictures you can’t find many differences compared to the actual #8131. Obviously there is an embossed Red Wing Shoes logo on the outsides of the vintage #8131, while the new boot features the characteristic label at the tongue with a lot of information about the boot. All Red Wing Boots and Shoes have this label since years. The inseams of the heels are a bit different. That’s all. Never change a working system or a good working product! Thanks to the guys from Red Wing, Minnesota! Come and get your #8131 at the oldest Red Wing Shoe Store outside the USA in Frankfurt, est. 1977, in store or online www.redwingfrankfurt.com. pics | LTG
what a found … did you hear about this japan limited RWS 6 inch boot? sorry, me not. you like? i do not know – but i think, i like the hybrid between the classic RWS moc toe and a canoe or boat shoe. the boots are available in the wonderful GOLD RUSSET SEQUOIA and ORO RUSSET. they show the classic 50s IRISH SETTER label and come in the retro box from this time. pics | THREEWOOD + FOOT TIME
i did this post to show my buddy RON WELLDON how different the oro-russet color on RED WING SHOES could look like, because he asked me something about. so here you can see my oro-russet colored RWS line up. sure the color changes with every wear. it is certain that oro-russet gets darker. look at the vintage #855 and #877 irish setter. but even the new boots show some differences: #4558 and #2940. the #866 PECOS is vintage but not worn so often and it shows again another color. but as you know: we love this handmade stuff and i am really glad that the shoe color isn’t all the same. exciting. that’s one reason why i love to wear and own RED WING SHOES! pics | LTG
