BOOT OF THE DAY | #164 | THOROGOOD LACE-TO-TOE ROFFER BOOT #814-6233 BLACK

i know the THOROGOOD ROOFER BOOT very well by walking some miles in it. but not in this awesome black one #814-6233 but in the tan brown THOROGOOD iconic roofer boot #633. and funny: after a while i took the roofer special sole away and put a VIBRAM #2021 on it which is similar to the VIBRAM CHRISTY. i never really liked the #633 and so i sold it on ebay a while ago to get some more space for my boot collection. but i must tell you that this black beauty is really nice – isn't it? i never saw the THOROGOOD ROOFER BOOT in black before i found it at  www.hickorees.com . one of the best online shops around the www.

some facts: black oil-tanned leather, GOODYEAR storm welt construction (fully resoleable), engineered composite shank, removable “Dual Density Ultimate Shock Absorption” footbed on Poron 4000 Comfort Cushion, VIBRAM CHRISTY blown rubber wedge outsole, seam reinforcing rivets. certainly made in the USA. pics | HICKOREES

FROM THE ARCHIVES – 2009 | LIFE TIME GEAR & NIGEL CABOURN

4 years ago from the 28th – 31th of january 2009 i did a trip to BERLIN to 14 oz. SECOND FLOOR SHOW where i met NIGEL CABOURN in person. i have had 3 wonderful days meeting a lot of people! i remember the first evening very well when KARL-HEINZ M√úLLER did a big event at TEMPELHOF and told the public that BREAD & BUTTER will be back in berlin summer 2009. what a party! great. it was the first time for me to get in contact with all these crazy and cracked people. 12 months later i started LIFE TIME GEAR blog. pics | Fred from redwing 1905 blog

FALSE TONGUES ON RED WING SHOES & BOOTS

i know that not all work boot maniacs and RED WING lovers like FALSE TONGUES. and for some guys here in europe these piece of leather is or was totally unknown. 2 weeks ago i saw an upcoming RED WING BOOT from the HERITAGE COLLECTION with a FALSE TONGUE or how some people say with KlLTYs: the LINEMAN #2906. i think this style will be delivered with false tongues. i like this special work boot style for a longer time owning some WHITE'S BOOTS which came with false tongues. you can't imagine how many guys asked me for this piece of leather the last years. most said: oh, these arefalse tongues? ah. no, i don't like. last tuesday i got some false tongues from FRED c/o redwing1905.blog as a present. today i checked on which boots or shoes they would fit. but i did not put it into the laces, it was just a check. and i like it a lot! thanks FRED and thanks for the nice vintage box. and i am sure that there will be more and more guys like them too in the nearer future. pics | LTG and FRED
