If crocking gets you down about your shit kickers, the Red Wing 8882 in Indigo Portage Leather is a boot you’ll not be afraid to wear with your crispy raws. Whether you’re trudging through the construction site or, more likely, the city pavement, these boots look right at home with your indigo x indigo denim.
The leather’s beautifully dyed and more uniform than other DIY home jobs out there, so it’s much less wabi sabi. It’ll also keep it’s good looks for longer since it’s weather-resistant and stain-resistant. As for the style itself, the 8882 is their classic 6-inch moc toe boot and features 7 metal eyelets, Goodyear welt construction, and their Traction Tred outsole.
Available at Kith NYC for $270.
