This week we launched the a limited stock of the European exclusive Red Wing Shoes 1907 6" Moc Toe Copper Rough & Tough. We are happy to have these because this style belongs to the USA Classics 875 & 877. The combination of the Moc style details, the rugged Copper Rough & Tough leather and the leather laces (unlike the shoes here) make this an shoe a perfect temporary addition to Red Wing Heritage line.
Menno van Meurs, founder of the Red Wing Store Amsterdam, is so crazy about his 1907's that he brought them on his vacantion to Portugal. He shot some pictures of them at the Algarve caves from Albandeira to show us how a worn in pair will look like after ten months of intense wear.
If the world's most influential denim and fashion show Berlin Bread & Butter would be a future prediction show Red Wing may be looking forward to it. Now we know about the ongoing love affair between denim aficionado's and Red Wing shoes but this July's BBB trade-show proved again that Red Wing is the shoe to wear with jeans. Because we were fascinated by the amount of Red Wing boots around, as well as the diversity amongst them we thought it would be nice to share a few of them here. More shots later this week!
We are proud to stock the Filson Red Label 4 pocket duck cotton zippered tote bag from of today. The beautiful bags, made of tough 18oz. duck cotton, with genuine bridle leather trim that is long enough to slip over the shoulder comes in natural white and navy blue. The bags have 2 large outside pockets with buttons, 2 small end open utility pockets on the inside and an interior clasp to keep your keys safe.

The bags are made with the strongest materials to give their clients the best quality there is. These special Red Label bags were once exclusively available in Japan, but now, specially for our webstore, they’re available here too.
Last week we visited Los Angeles to get inspired at Rin Tanaka's Inspiration, the Rose Bowl Flea Market and all the other lovely places of LA. A 'denim haven' as LA is it surely has good roots for vintage boots. The stacks and bales and warehouses full of vintage jeans where all accompanied with beautiful aged Red Wing Shoes. Straight from the mines and factories! Here some images taken at Inspiration, the Rose Bowl, our secret denim dealer and more. Enjoy!
It is always inspiring to visit the fairs, last week Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, and this week Bread & Butter in Berlin. We decided to get our focus on Red Wing Shoes and we can say, it's good to see so many people enjoying their boots. Here's just a little preview of a huge collection of images which we will share online later this month at Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam. And there's more. Tomorrow we will sit down with Nigel Cabourn and Gabor Magyar (Red Wing Europe) to talk about their latest collaboration, the Munson Boot. Later more on that.
We're at Pitti Immagine Uomo in Florence, getting some inspiration, celebrating some new and upcoming Red Wing Shoes and collaborations (more on that this afternoon) and shooting as many people in Red Wing boots we can capture. Stay tuned and follow us on Twitter for more updates.
