Since the cold and snow is hitting Amsterdam again today, we wanted to share this great video with you. It's a hommage to craftspeople who spend their winters inside to work around in their workshops. During the cold times these fanatics lock themselves in to fully focus on their motorcycles, so they'll be able to ride them again when the weather is turning. The guy tinkering with his beloved Honda motorcycle in the video is wearing a pair of beautiful worn in Red Wing Shoes 875 Moc Toe's. Make yourself a good cup of coffee and enjoy this warm video.
As from of today we have a new promotion in the online webstore of Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam. Since you might have to find yourself one day with the issue of having worn out or ripped your shoelaces, we now ship an extra spare pair of shoelaces with every pair of Red Wing Shoes ordered! Depending on the original laces that come with the style of Red Wing Shoes ordered, we will include either the Gold/Tan Round Laces, the Black/Brown Round Laces or the Black Waxed Flat Laces in the matching length.
Red Wing Shoes - 4585- 8" Logger Briar Oil Slick
The Logger is the Red Wing style built to equip the lumberjacks during their daily work in the American forests. With a 8" high neck, it suits itself perfectly to be tight laced around the leg to prevent insects and wood snips from entering the shoe. Due to the Goodyear welted Vibram Lug outsole with heavy traction, the Logger has a rugged appearance and keeps you going strong on any surface. Maintenance: All Natural Boot Oil[more]
Here is our good friend Brigitta in action lacing her fresh pair of 8111 Iron Rangers in the Amber Harness that she bought recently with us in the Reestraat. We were astonished when we came across this photograph, where she combined the Iron Rangers with an exquisite style. The photo was taken by The Sartorialist on the latest edition of the Pitti Uomo fair in Florence.
When talking classic hats, there's only a few brands that are still around and survived the last decades when hats were vastly dissapearing. One of these brands is Stetson, of which we now carry several hat styles in store. It's a company with a beautiful heritage and history, one of which could be compared to the Red Wing Shoes in its own lane. The American company continues to produce the same timeless style hats your grandfather was once wearing and best of all is that all of the hats are still handmade, just like a hundreds years ago. Here's a beautiful coverage of the making of one of the styles, the Stetson Hatteras hat in a herringbone tweed. The video shows the process of the making from the cutting and sewing of the tweed fabric, to it's finishing process where the hat is hot-steamed for softening the fabric and shaping its fit.
Available here in the online webstore.
The Italian based Harley Davidson fanatic and enthusiast Roberto Rossi turned his passion into a profession and re-styles modern Harley Davidson bikes. He's based in the mountainous area of Montova, Italy, a beautiful region to take your bike around for a peaceful ride and enjoy the breath of clean air. For the promotion of the Harley Davidson Stellapina, Giorgio Oppici made a video of such a ride through the North-Italian country. Of course what would a nice motorcycle be without some proper solid boots? The rider Alessandro Viganò is wearing some good ol' Red Wing 8180 Moc Toe's in the very rare and limited Green Katanga leather, once released by Red Wing a couple of years back. Check out the ride in the video below.
