Our Portuguese DJ friend Leote sent us some sunny images from his worn Red Wing Shoes 8113 Iron Ranger Hawthorne Muleskinner that he bought at the Red Wing Shoe Store about a year ago.
As he states in his email: "..pics of my Red Wing Iron Ranger's bought them in 2010 september at the Red wing Amsterdam shop and since then they have been with me during surfing trips, they suffered from sun, rain and lots of nights clubbing thanks to my DJ work." His conclusion: They only get prettier along the way. Have a look at his stunning pair of 8113 (and for the record ignore the sunny weather like we did too).
The perfect match in style, and probably the oldest match in history is definitely Red Wing Shoes and Levi's Vintage Clothing. We simply love this look at Tenue de Nîmes, the Red Wing Shoes 8125 8" Classic Moc Blueberry Muleskinner together with the amazing Levi's Vintage Clothing 1890 501 XX Spur Bites Limited Edition jeans. The Levi® Strauss & Co. archives bought the original jeans in 1997 for $25,000. These legendary jeans were made between 1890-1901 in San Francisco with XX 9 oz. denim from the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company in Manchester, New Hampshire. The name ‘Spur Bites’ refers to the damage at the leg openings that are typically the result from wearing spurs and riding boots, something cowboys from back in the day were well familiar with. The spur bites were repaired with a number of patches from a variety of denims, one of which is the same as the jeans itself. This suggests that it was at least the second pair the wearer owned. He sacrificed one pair to save another. The yarns were dyed with natural indigo. This piece is sewn in the USA, limited to 501 pairs worldwide. A truly amazing piece to accompany your Red Wing boots.
