Red Wing Work Boots

I had been wearing the crepe sole moc toe work boots for some time and could not resist the vintage look of the 1911 Beckman Gentleman Travelers in Black Cherry when they were issued a few years back. I have since narrowed it down to the Iron Ranger 8111 for my daily work boots with the Beckman Gentleman Travelers seeing some light work & weekend use. The Moc Toe 875 also still see some sporadic use.

Some of my Red Wing boots worn over the past 5 odd years.

Red Wing Heritage and Red Wing Shoe Japan are some cool sites for fans of Red Wing boots. RedWing1905 is also a nice blog of interest.
