10-Years Anniversary Of The Store
Next week The Red Wing Shoe Store in Amsterdam celebrates its 10th anniversary. On the 22nd of July in 2010, they opened the doors of the store. To celebrate this milestone they will launch next week, Wednesday 22 of July, a very special anniversary release. The release will be a limited-edition Moc Toe Amsterdam boot.
The Exclusive Abilene Leather
The Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam limited-edition is made from ‘Abilene’ leather. This leather is manufactured in the Red Wing tannery in Minnesota, USA. It’s often referred to as ‘rough out’, as it is the rough side of the leather hide. ‘Abilene’ is one of the iconic leathers Red Wing uses for their shoes.
Using the leather inside out creates many benefits as it is water repellent, it’s known for its breathability, and does not require any maintenance. On top of that, the leather will not dry out and if kept inside it can remain supple for 100 years!
This special anniversary Red Wing boot is made in the USA and limited to 180 pairs. This exclusive boot has Amsterdam stamped on the inside of the right foot and will be released on July 22, marking the exact date of the opening of the Red Wing Amsterdam Shoe Store in 2010.
Co-Owner Of The Amsterdam Store
“Red Wing Shoes to me looked timeless, yet from another world,” says Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam co-owner Mitch de Vries about the first moment he came across the brand. “Where do you find a brand like this these days? The company is still family-owned, the products are still made in the USA and even the leather is tanned in a family-owned tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota. To me, Red Wing boots are the most durable, sustainable boots I know and I am proud to be part of their quality community”.
The Red Wing Amsterdam boot is exclusively available at the Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam. The boots will come in a special box. And it will include a sticker pack featuring the anniversary artwork.
Special For First 25 Customers
The first 25 customers will receive a vegetable-tanned cardholder from Red Wing with ‘Amsterdam’ stamped into the leather.
