We often lament at the fact that the best things nowadays aren't made in the U.S. anymore. This new collaboration between Red Wing and So-Cal retailer BLENDS is about to instill a reversal of that. Limited to 150 pairs, the BLENDS x Red Wing 6" Round Toe Boots are part of the "Made in the USA" campaign, where consumers get a first-hand look at American craftsmanship and quality. Headed by Tak Kato, creative director of BLENDS, a series of subtle details were added to present a more causal silhouette. In place of the traditional leather, supple suede covered the 6" Round Toe Boots, the first time in the design's history. Next, Kato applied tonal stitches and mixed in element from the Red Wing Irish Setter sports boots with the addition of quick-lace hooks.  In effect, the new design works for everyone. Thus, propagate what is already known in previous generations, that American craftsmanship is alive and well. The BLENDS x Red Wing - 6-Inch Round Toe Boots will be available tomorrow, December 10th, at BLENDS retail locations.

Release Date: December 10th, 2011 (Tomorrow!)
