Vintage shoe laces is one of the best item for your boots, no matter you are wearing Red Wing shoes or other brand, it comes with another feel and it represent your taste. Vintage shoe laces did not mean used or 2nd hand, sometimes it is just dead stock or keep in the warehouse for some time.

It is not easy to find one, you can just get one by luck, so if you have time, go and take some time to explore the 2nd hand shop, vintage store, especially when you go to Thailand, Taiwan and Japan. They got a lot of vintage good stuffs.

IMG_7915 拷貝

Trust me, this 2 books are the perfect books for Red Wing Fans!

Although the books is written in Japanese, but it is fine, most of the terms is in english, and, you can understand by pictures/images. One of the best information is they group up all the shoes and last number in the book. So you can see your 875 last number VS other Red Wing shoes, so if you are wearing US9 875, and you really like the last and the fitting. You can refer the table to look for other red wing shoes with the same last number.

MY BOOTS LIFE #34 | Red wing shoes foot bed

Converse footbed, are you kidding?

No, it is the perfect one for your heritage Red Wing shoes boots. I tried the new Converse Chuch Taylor All Star 2, it come with the Lunarlon air footbed. I bought the white color sneaker, however, it is so white and after 3 or 4 months, it turned into yellow and very dirty.

My Jason Markk cannot save it, however, I found that the shoe bed of Chuck Taylor All Star II is the perfect match for my Red Wing shoes, especially the Moc toe 875.

Danner STYLE NO. 30860

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 11.32.50 AM

Danner STYLE NO. 30860有什麼吸引必買呢?除了因為Danner一向較少推出全黑色的鞋款外,007也是原因之一,最新電影,老大便穿了Danner。電影,明星,有型及少有推出,我相信已沒有任何理由不買的。除此之外是100%防水及Made in USA的。

至於售賣點?對不起,香港是很難買到的,暫時都看不到有貨。樂天,日本及美國官網,加埋Amazon都已全面冇貨,但去開日本東京,尤其是現在減價時間,不仿試試入去Beams或ABC mart看看,或許你會找到。

至於ABC mart為何有售?早年他們已收購了Danner了,你不知道嗎?

MY BOOTS LIFE #31 | Red wing shoes fw 2015 Lineman vs old lineman

IMG_6681

This year, Red wing shoes launched the new Red Wing Lineman series, the Red wing 2995. So I take out my new and old lineman to see the difference. What I can say is the new lineman is perfect. Another must have item for the winter. I changed the sole for my 2913 to black traction sole, so it is more special and good looking. But the white colour seam lines are so white and not as shuttle as the 2995.

Another nice pair of Red Wing shoes for this FW2015.

What is the different between this one with the old version Lineman? The most significant is the weight. It is so light weight! The other different is the design, of course, the new design for Lineman. Wider design of the shoe, you must go and double check your size before buying it. Any nice design is the shoe lace part, it is totally new design, … Read more 內容…
