Over the past few months we are witnessing a growing group of people embracing the heart and soul of the Red Wing Shoe brand. Where members of the fashion business have yet adapted the Red Wing brand since several seasons after Japan kicked of the Red Wing life-style business, influential shows like Pitti & Bread & Butter were filled with Red Wing aficionado's over the past couple of years. The Red Wing brand gained a lot of popularity in the US thanks to numerous artists and Hollywood stars showing their appreciation for our brand as well. We made a selection of images of celebrities who are wearing Red Wing Shoes. David Beckham & Ryan Gosling are both fans of the 875 6'' Moc Toe Oro-iginal. Recently we had Brandon Boyd (singer of Incubus) in Amsterdam Red Wing Shoe store who fell in love with the 8113 Iron Rangers Hawthorne Muleskinner. Orlando Bloom likes to wear his 8130 6'' Moc Toe Black Chrome while driving his motorcycle. Actor Jeremy Renner was recently featured in Esquire wearing a pair of Beckman shoes. More soon!
Yes, it is better in the wind! Scott Toepfer finally put online the full length short movy ‘It's Better In The Wind’. For the last two years he have been taking still photographs for a personal project entitled 'It's Better In The Wind,' all the while collecting video footage from each ride as they traveled around the Western United States together. The result is this lovely short movie, in his own words ‘just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities.’ It does inspire us! Especially with the tunes of Chuck Ragan on the background - the only thing I want is hop on that bike, and hit the road….
Doing some American style haircuts and driving a real ‘Muscle car on two wheels’; That’s what Tomcats, the Brooklyn based barbershop, is doing. We really love this old style American barbershop, beautifully shot by r-e-l-i-c.com for their Harley-Davidson ‘The Ridebook’.
Photographer and film maker Benedict Campbell, known for his beautiful Cafe Cowboy movie, shared this little preview of a new film he’s working on: The Wall of Death. Accompanied by the lovely tunes of Jonny Cash. We can’t wait to see the rest!
