RED WING #8882 INDIGO PORTAGE LEATHER & RWS FRANKFURT ONLINE SHOP RELAUNCHED

@ first some really great news for all RWS aficionados: The Online Store of Red Wing Shoe Store Frankfurt, Germany, has reopened after a complete relaunch: www.redwingfrankfurt.com! And I love this clean graphic style so much. I do not want to see the 877th rugged or vintage look-a-like page. Complements. Kami you did a perfect job with your team! So we did a test shopping some days before the shop went online … the result was the brand new limited RED WING #8882 – a perfect online order: Ordered in the morning and the next day the boot arrived. The online order process itself is very simple, fast and smooth … it works!

Constant readers of LTG Blog know that I like blue RWS a lot. Two years ago I got the indigo colored classic work #8100 Oxford from Japan and I still love it. The #8882 is the same shoe just 6″ high like the classic #875, moc toed, made of Indigo Portage Leather and completed by the Traction Tred Cushion Crepe Wedge. Very nice is the brown ending of the bootleg – a small detail, but I love the contrast between the rich blue and brown leather. Another nice feature: you don’t get only the standard Red Wing Shoe Laces but a second pair made of leather. The leather laces look very nice but for me these are not so practical. Okay guys … these blue beauties are limited – order your #8882 @ Red Wing Shoe Store Frankfurt online right now. pics | LTG

RED WING SHOES AT WORK | OXFORD RWS #8103 IN THE FIELD

yesterday i went to france to a small village named SCHEIBENHARD in the ALSAC region, just 5 miles behind the former german border line. i did art direction for one of my clients while having a photo shoot in the field with a lot of agriculture crafts to show the great range of tires and the use of these. damn, it was so hot and sticky. so it was a good decision to choose the RWS oxfords because of the traction, the comfort and the easy clean behind. sorry for these bad iphone pics from the shooting itself. but isn’t the FORD TRACTOR barn found not nice. it was built 1970 and got a new turbo machine last week. the sound is incredible. pics | LTG

RED WING SHOES | NEW ROUND TOE OXFORDS 8051 8052

i think a lot of you saw these so beautiful oxfords at past blogs from the RWS shops or the blogger community after last years fairs. but today i got some official photos from the RED WING HERITAGE  EUROPE central that i must show you. great shots. here the informations from RWS about the shoes: “Red Wing Heritage has just released a few new round toe oxfords for the Spring/Summer 2013 Heritage Work Collection available in Black Star (8051) and Brick Settler (8052). Inspired by the sports,  dress and work styles of Red Wing oxfords released in the 1930’s the round toe oxford is the perfect combination of work and play. The smooth grain Settler leather (8052) accentuates beauty marks like scars and scratches with a distinctive luster,  contrasting with the full grain Blackstar leather (8051),  which has been finished to provide a uniform appearance and color while providing resistance to water,  stains and perspiration.” by reading LTG blog you know that i am a great oxford fan and so i just reserved a pair 8052 at volls.de – i just phoned with KLAUS when the RWS mail came in. pics |  Red Wing Heritage Europe



FALSE TONGUES ON RED WING SHOES & BOOTS

i know that not all work boot maniacs and RED WING lovers like FALSE TONGUES. and for some guys here in europe these piece of leather is or was totally unknown. 2 weeks ago i saw an upcoming RED WING BOOT from the HERITAGE COLLECTION with a FALSE TONGUE or how some people say with KlLTYs: the LINEMAN #2906. i think this style will be delivered with false tongues. i like this special work boot style for a longer time owning some WHITE’S BOOTS which came with false tongues. you can’t imagine how many guys asked me for this piece of leather the last years. most said: oh, these arefalse tongues? ah. no, i don’t like. last tuesday i got some false tongues from FRED c/o redwing1905.blog as a present. today i checked on which boots or shoes they would fit. but i did not put it into the laces, it was just a check. and i like it a lot! thanks FRED and thanks for the nice vintage box. and i am sure that there will be more and more guys like them too in the nearer future. pics | LTG and FRED
