red wing 8188
i’m going to try to keep the fall/winter posts lite on red wing boots this year, but before i do allow me to mention these 9″ pecos hawthorne muleskinner boots. red wing’s “hawthorne muleskinner” is what they call their rough-out leather – which is known for it’s aging process i.e. they’ll look better with age. the outsole is nitrile cork. the only problem with the boots is that i can’t find them in the states. these pictures are courtesy of red wing’s fine amsterdam store. worst case scenario, i’ll have to order them from their amsterdam shop and wait a little longer to get them. i guess it beats ordering them from the shoe mart and then never getting them.
