Rallying all men who use their hands and rock a good time in the yard! J. Crew had collaborated with heritage work boots maker, Red Wing Shoes, to create a pair of sturdy yet very good looking Leather Vintage Work Boots for fall. After J. Crew Men’s Shop and J. Crew Liquor Store debuted, the label had been getting deeply involved in high quality collaborations to put much needed well-made items out there for the sartorially minded men.
This pair of Leather Vintage Work Boots is the result of a close collaboration between Red Wing Shoes and J. Crew where the former dipped into their extensive archives to reproduce a pair of their favorite exclusively for the latter. The boots are crafted from a Copper Rough and Tough full-grain leather custom tanned in Red Wing Shoes’ own tannery that will age beautifully with wear. The shoes are put together in a reinforced triple stitch and sturdy direct attach Goodyear welt construction. Metal hardware on the shoes are done up in a rugged gun-metal finish to fit the burly boots.
Lug some timber and chop up some firewood upstate this fall for some much needed physical labor therapy. Or, just rock them on the streets with some rolled up selvedge denim to look the part (because girls like men who work).
