Red Wing Shoes digs into their archives and reaches back all the way to 1925 to recreate the Billy Boot, an 8” moc-toe boot which was named after the owner’s son – Billy Sweasy.
Originally designed for boys, it features a knife pocket on the right side and even used to come with a jack knife too, which for obvious reasons wont be included with this rerelease. Makes a good USB drive pocket though …
The boots are crafted from the cult-favourite “Black Klondike” leather that features a black dye that gradually rubs off over time with wear to reveal the brown leather underneath, resulting in a unique aging characteristic.
The 8829 8” Classic Moc Toe “Billy Boot” will be released in limited quantities at @redwingheritage_sg sometime in December
