Work boots

Words: Tom

It appears that Red Wings work boots have come again…. which if I’m honest makes me feel a little old. I remember getting my first pair when I was about 15. A cripplingly tiny size UK9 all black pair, that were too small for my 10.5 feet.

While the Nike booties below are obviously not Red Wings, they are most definitely inspired by them… boasting 100% premium quality leather in a deep burgundy they feature white contrast stitching, two-tone laces, and metal eyelets to complete the rugged look. And, with the added bonus of adding at least an inch in height, these would act as a stylish replacement for those Cuban heels to the more diminutive gent.

They’re really quite handsome. Available exclusively from The Glade.
