Well, someone please quote me on this: this is my last pair of Red Wing’s. Over the holidays, I treated myself to a pair of the 8881 Moc-toes. This model comes in a olive mohave rough-out leather. I wanted some olive drab-ish boots, and now I’ve got them. These are really great if you’re trying to switch it up from the “typical” Moc-toes. Traditional crepe sole, triple-stitch construction, Goodyear welted, and made in Red Wing, MN. 100+ years of making footwear doesn’t lie.
I’m still amazed by the amount of detail in every Engineered Garments piece. From the hidden pocket to the interesting choice of fabric, these pants are definitely a major change from what I’m used to wearing; as they’re made to wear pretty baggy. Details include:
- Made of a really heavyweight ripstop cotton
- Talon zipper fly
- Hidden pocket in the waist band
- Internal suspender buttons
- Taped seams
- Made in New York.
These will definitely get a lot of wear in the coming months. I’ll put up a photo of them on tomorrow, the sun sets to darn early these days…
