CUSTOMIZED ICONIC RED WING BOOT #877 MOC TOE

Customized iconic Red Wing #877. Found – where else – on a Japanese Twitter Account (MaH @MaH53137643). I like this kind of customizing with that fat soles and higher heels a lot. But beside soles and heels there is another fine custom thing that looks great and is very practical at these 8-inch Classic Moc: speed hooks! What a perfect #877 ... pics | MaH @MaH53137643

With the first warm days this year and feeling a bit the spirit of summer, I wanna show you a brand new label which is now available at www.b74.de: SUNSET SURF. This label is inspired by the west coast surf culture from the early 1900’s upt to the 1980’s. The graphics are about the Southern Californian surfing expression. The fabric is well known and often copied, but never surpassed the original vintage style slub yarn made by Johnson Motors Inc. 100% ringspun slub cotton, traditional slim fit with the signature self rib and suture stitch. Cut, sewn, dyed, printed and hand finished in the city of Los Angeles. All graphic art is hand drawn. T-shirts are garment dyed and pre-shrunk. pics | B74 & freeimages

RED WING HERITAGE ICONIC STYLE #8131 | VINTAGE versus NEW

One of my absolute Red Wing favorites is the iconic Moc Toe style #8131. Before handing out my brother his new oro-russet Moc Toe, I had to take some shots – I like the contrast so much. Maybe you wanna check out the “vintage versus new” photos. My rugged boot is from the 90s and when you check the pictures you can't find many differences compared to the actual #8131. Obviously there is an embossed Red Wing Shoes logo on the outsides of the vintage #8131, while the new boot features the characteristic label at the tongue with a lot of information about the boot. All Red Wing Boots and Shoes have this label since years. The inseams of the heels are a bit different. That's all. Never change a working system or a good working product! Thanks to the guys from Red Wing, Minnesota! Come and get your #8131 at the oldest Red Wing Shoe Store outside the USA in Frankfurt, est. 1977, in store or online www.redwingfrankfurt.com. pics | LTG

Last week www.b74.de did the first newsletter after the launch of their new online shop just a few days ago. When talking to the owner and founder of this great concept store Kami, the response was really good. So this weekend the next newsletter went out. After ”ALL IN BLACK” now a triple color combination is the motto: red, white and blue. This is not a statement “pro USA”, the B74 crew just likes this color combination of the back in stock Orcival Marine Shirt, the 16.5 oz Tellason Coverall Jacket and the Johnson Motors Bandana. pics | LTG & www.b74.de
