Evolution of a Red Wing 9013 shoe / boot which is one of my favorites. Worn or broken in since 1 1/2 years now. Check the difference when I bought them.
Red Wing Boots 9013 cognac, Charles Beckman:
When I first saw the Red Wing classic-heritage collection, this boot the 9013 was the first choice for me, unfortunately it was not available at my size. As time passed by, luckily exactly my size showed up on eBay.
Worn now for 2 weeks it shows the first characteristics – more to come.

Here the description from Red Wing:
“Harkening back to a time when a gentlemen wore functional footwear with a touch of class, the Beckman Collection is named after the founder of the Red Wing Shoe Company; Charles Beckman. Mr. Beckman navigated the muddy streets of Red Wing as part of his daily routine. He wore sturdy boots that could be polished to match his status as a successful Main Street shoe store merchant. Today the Beckman Collection consists of classically styled, comfortable boots that make them the perfect choice for nearly any occasion. Made with Red Wing’s finest Featherstone Leather these boots are built to impress.”
