Indigofera X Red Wing Shoes Capsule Collection

Indigofera celebrates its 10th anniversary with a special capsule collection with American footwear brand Red Wing Shoes. Key of the collaboration collection is the #4328 Climber Boot, but they produced also a t-shirt, bandana, and blanket too.

The Swedish denim brand is making the finest denim and leather products since their start. Now, it was time to do something extraordinary. Something special that is made in a limited run to highlight it’s anniversary, but also the connection between both brands.

The Climber Boots

The collaboration 8-inch Climber Boots is based on a pair of Red Wing Shoes from 1977. This older #919 style was originally developed for linemen. Now, these boots are updated with special features like the green Vibram sole with a stacked heel and the Black Prairie leather. This leather is tanned in a deep brown tone and then painted black. So with wear, the brown color will pop-up more and more and will create a super unique patina.

The boots are made in Red Wing, Minnesota (USA), in a limited run of 600 pairs only and available at selected retailers worldwide and Red Wing Shoes stores as in Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich.

The Harvey T-Shirt

The collaboration t-shirt Harvey is part of the limited capsule too. It’s produced by Indigofera in Portugal and is made from 100% vintage Supima cotton from the States. This shirt resembles the approach towards quality of both brands. Supima cotton is up to 45% more durable than regular cotton.

The shirt is made with the original Red Wing Shoes company colors, red sleeves and white body, and shows the collaboration boot printed on the front of the shirt.

Collaboration Bandana

The special anniversary bandana is made with an all-over print. It’s a mix of the 4328 Climber Boot graphic and the Indigofera logo. The green and black print colors in combination with the ecru color of the bandana itself makes it very special. And perfect to wear with the boots and a t-shirt.

Wool Blanket

On top of the boots, t-shirt, and bandana there’s also a special blanket produced. The blanket shows the quality of both brands. It has the classic Navajo motifs and is made of 100% Norwegian wool. The colors of the blanket are chosen as a connection with the logo of the Red Wing Shoes company.
