Red Wing shoes have for a long time been our go to brand for durable, autumn appropriate footwear. This season, they have revived one of their old, classic designs in a new and exciting way.

The new shoe, named The Kangatan is based on a superior sport boot from 1963. The original style was called the SuperSetter and was quite possibly the most international men’s shoe ever created.

Crafted from Australian kangaroo hide leather, with a Scottish zug leather vamp, English pac toe, Norwegian welting, German laces, Swiss soles which all came together in the Minnesota Red Wing construction plant.

For those of you that know anything about baseball, they were worn by Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams, whose name was often linked to premium and high quality sports and outdoor gear.

For the reinvention, Red Wing have taken all of the factors that made the original so iconic and given them a more modern feel. Still premium, and still green, the Kangatan boot features the classic white Traction Tred outsole, Goodyear welt construction with green Kangatan Portage leather.

The new design bears some of the hallmarks of the original but is shorter and sleeker, which fits the brands rugged, outdoors style of throwing on a pair of boots and being good to go. As you would expect from Red Wing, quality is premium.

The brand has always been famous for the love and craftsmanship that go into creating every pair of boots that they make. We are always big fans of when brands go into their archives and re-imagine old styles (it is something that many British brands do very well) and feel that Red Wing are onto a winner with bringing back this old classic.
