red wing 875 in oro legacy

redwing4

if you’re a regular reader of to take the train, then you’re probably thinking, “why the hell am i looking at another pair of red wings?”  well, i don’t have a great answer to that question except to say these are new and i like them.

earlier this year, red wing announced they were reverting back to the original, untreated leather of their 875s and calling it the “oro legacy.”  the boot hasn’t changed at all.  it’s still a moc toe work boot made on the same last as the 875 that you’ve grown to love.  the only difference is the leather.  the orange color is a bit brighter and slicker which is going to give it more character as it breaks in.  i’ve been wearing them for a week now and they look pretty damn good.  the other great thing about these is that you can actually find them on zappos.  i had to track down the original 875s at the red wing store or some nuts-ass army surplus store in bumf**k.  life can be so hard sometimes.

yeezus indian headress t-shirt

yeezust2

i bought this t-shirt.  this is not a joke.  i think it’s f**king awesome.  it reminded me of the grateful dead x wes lang t-shirt that i neglected to buy last year.  leave it to kanye to create something so next level that it almost completely contradicts his personal brand (or does it? i can’t keep up).

i missed his show in nashville the other night.  it looked amazing from what i saw on instagram.  i hope i can catch it in another city, but if that doesn’t happen, at least i’ll have this badass indian headress t-shirt (that’s funny on so many levels).  you can get your very own here if you’re interested in that kind of thing.
