current obsession: red wing oxfords
it’s tough to justify wearing red wing work boots in the spring and summertime if you don’t technically need them for work. ryan gosling is the exception, but he’s on a whole different level than you and me. lucky for us, red wing makes a couple different styles of oxfords to solve this warm weather problem. here are two options i have my eye on: 1) the red wing for j. crew plain toe oxford and 2) the red wing work oxford. i don’t think i can go wrong with either one.
sizing tip: both of these oxfords are made on the 23 last which is the same last as the 875s, so you’re going to want to size down .5 or a whole size for them to fit correctly.
