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.
