LIFE TIME GEAR BOOT & SHOE COLLECTION | 14 | RED WING SHOES ICONIC STYLE 877


one of my absolute favorite RED WING SHOE styles: the iconic 877 IRIH SETTER. a must-have in every work boot or RED WING SHOES collection. this classic moc toe was introduced in the early 1950s and the first RWS boot which was outfitted with the characteristic white crepe sole. i love especially the long stiches on the side of the boot. in comparison to the #877 the #875 just could be a light version of the “godfather of the RWS moc toe family”. the #877 is often seen on actors and was worn f.ex. by STEVE McQUEEN and JACK NICHOLSON. and because of best fit these guys enjoy the great comfort of the #877 even outside the studios and film locations. this #877 is one of two i own. in my collection there is another vintage one from the 70s in classic oro-russet, irish setter labelled – pics will follow. this one is one of my absolute rarities in my small collection. pics | LTG
