Red Wing Shoes Hong Kong Best Collaborations

New Balance x Red Wing Shoes

New Balance has worked with Red Wing Shoes on a luxe iteration of the heritage M997 model that sports a premium upper made from the shoe brand’s signature leather and suede. Red Wing leather has been used in place of New Balance’s standard mix of materials and offers a luxurious take on the 997, delivered in a tonal palette of browns, creams and red- the latter colour being a subtle nod to the Red Wing partnership.

Buttery soft suede has been used on the majority of the sneaker’s upper, using a slightly heavier cut for the mid-panel and “N” emblem in comparison to the smoother toe box and heel section. Leather had been used on more detailed sections such as the eyestay and heel support, as well as for the tongue, which features New Balance branding and the “MADE IN USA” stamp. Tan leather lining, a red heel counter, branding on the heel tab and Red Wing-branded insoles round off the premium 997’s design, while an off-white midsole and red-hued gum outsole contrast the upper.

Nigel Cabourn x Red Wing Shoes

Nigel Cabourn, the British designer best known for his outerwear pieces, has teamed up with Red Wing Heritage to create the Munson Boot. A unique style inspired by Edward Munson’s 1912 study into the perfect military boot, the Munson features an oiled leather upper finished with a layer of wax of added durability and weather resistance. Other features of the shoe include a Harris Tweed lining for warmth, a double layer outsole for increased comfort and durability, and leather laces finished in military green.

fragment design x Red Wing Shoes

Hiroshi Fujiwara of fragment design has joined Red Wing for a fresh take on the 4679 Moc Toe boot. Ack in the ‘90s, the Red Wing style was worn regularly by Fujiwara, and since then, has gained iconic status in Japan. After Daisuke Genma introduced the pair, Fujiwara and Red Wing have worked on giving the classic boot subtle, yet noticeable updates.

Dressed in all-black chrome leather, the boots sport white soles and a black storm welt with contrasting stitching. Dual branding finishes off the upper, while black stitching and nickel eyelets offer the shoe tonal variation.

Do I need a resole?

Boots that need to undergo a resole will show certain signs of wear. As a boot owner, you will feel the difference in the support and stability of your soles if they need to be replaced. You will also notice substantial wear in the key hot spots of your sole including the outer heel and ball of the foot.

What’s the difference between Red Wing standard and premium conditioning?

The leather of your shoes and boots takes a great beating, especially in the winter months, as they are exposed to more elements. Both of Red Wing’s treatment options utilize premium leather conditioner, however, the premium conditioning option is a 4-step process which ensures your boots are not only conditioning but cleaned, sealed and more resistant to the elements than before. The standard conditioning option is a 2-step process which includes conditioning and sealing.
