Our good friend Casper White at Double RL has been waiting a couple of months for his Red Wing Shoes 2940 7'' Classic Round Toe in Oro-Russet because they were temporarily unavailable after a very successful release last winter. After the re-stock this season we were finally able to get him the former Japan exclusive. His email with the delivery confirmation contained a hilarious photo with his little kid Oscar and the following comment; 'They fit well'! We think Oscar is ready for autumn!
Special thanks to Casper for sharing his picture with us!
Last year we were honoured to get a small stock of the Red Wing Shoes 2940 7'' Classic Round Toe Oro-russet and 2941 7'' Classic Round Toe Dark Chocolate. Normally this style of Red Wing Shoes is only available to Japan. Because of a huge demand in Europe the two styles were sold out within a few weeks.
But we have some great news! A from this week we have a new stock exclusively available in the Red Wing Store Amsterdam. We hope you guys are as happy as we are with this lovely winter addition.

After its huge success in Japan the amazing 2940 (which was based on the 708, sold for almost 50 years between 1955 and 1999) will come to Europe any time soon. Stay tuned for this 8" Classic Round Toe in Oro Russet Portage.
Just found this pair of vintage 708's on Etsy — Just amazing!
