In Red Wing Shoes' latest Autumn Winter collection they introduced the new Brogue Ranger style. Up until now we did'nt see many worn-in pairs yet, but here's a nice example. This pair of Brogues is worn for a small amount of time and is customized with the Red Wing Flat Waxed Laces and a leather fringing tongue, giving the shoe a nice old-fashioned dandy look. The shoes belong to Mr. K of the store B74 in Frankfurt. Normally not a brogue fan, since he thinks they are too posh, but in the distinct Red Wing style he loves them.
Thanks to Fred (Banditbloggers Red Wing 1905) for the beautiful pictures.
We are happy to introduce you to a Red Wing style we have all been looking forward to for months; the Brogue Ranger 8126 and 8127.
This model is similar to the Iron Ranger but has a slightly classier, traditional look because of the Brogue toe. Red Wing used the Chaparral leather quality for this new model (the same leather as used on the 101 Postman model). This leather type is a true beauty because it has a very smooth touch and can be polished to restore color and luster. The details of the contrast and tonal stitches, the Goodyear welt construction and brown cork sole will give you the ultimate Red Wing feeling. We feel that this new style is bound to become one of the future classics.
The Brogue Rangers are available in two colors:
This fall Red Wing Shoes will launch a new shoe where the ultimate work boot will meet British heritage. The shoe was originally designed as a country walking shoe for the people around Red Wing, Minnesota. Farmers and gamekeepers who needed a boot that could withstand constant exposure to water and a boot that, when wet, would not break down and hurt a person’s feet.
The small perforations were crafted into the leather of the toecaps and quarters of the boot to allow water to drain and the boot to dry at a quickened pace.
The shoes, in Antique Brown Chapararal and Black Chaparral leather with a Nitrile Cork sole, will be available at the Red Wing Shoes store in Amsterdam, and online, coming fall.
