Ecke 32 Manufacture Store Konstanz:
After a too strong coffee I decided to cycle to Konstanz for a visit at the Ecke 32 Manufacture Store. Lars Nehren was able to get some of the finest brands available to the lake of constance (Bodensee) area for what I´m and others are really happy about. Labels like Tellason, Red Wing, Momotaro, Merz beim Schwanen, Schiesser Revival, LVC  and Wolverine just to name a view, are presented only a view metres away from the Konstanz Cathedral. First thursday in the month from 7pm to 9pm he hosts the possibility of private shopping upon appointment. Thanks Lars for your time, even on a very busy saturday!

Red Wing 8138 moc toe boot

I swear I thought a  Red Wing 8103 recommended by Eric would be my next. But when I saw the above 8138 Red Wing even 1 size too small I had to buy it. This boot for about 80 Euros in nearly mint condition , no wear on the leather just a bit on the soles. Great patina, lighter brown at the toes getting darker to the heels.
I really wonder how he had worn them?
They came done with the laces for “step in” and tiny “loops”.
The denim color on the inside of the shoe tongues also puzzles me, does someone really wears his jeans really that high or inside the boot?
How can you leave so little marks on the leather, never any crawling home from a bar/nightclub?

They will be on Ebay soon or go to a friend with size 43, drop me a line
if you are interested. SOLD !

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 a nice story of a pair of Red Wings 9013 aging by Goody Leathery

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.”

Red Wing 1908 boots – 100 Anniversary Model:
My first Red Wing boot, a 1908 moc toe, the 100th anniversary model. Bought at Manufactum about 2 years ago. If I´m getting it right the Label say´s produced in 2005. Manufactum sold them for a great price at about 180 Euros if I remember it right. Compared to the other vintage/classic models at a standard of about 260 Euros.
