Eat Dust and Red Wing’s Oro Russet Portage Pecos Boot Mixes Leathers
Presumably you’ve heard of a little brand called Red Wing, a company that’s been making some of the finest boots in the U.S. since 1905. And you surely know about their lace-up boots, which are ubiquitous both on Instagram and in Brooklyn. But you may not know quite as much about the Pecos Boot, a design first made in the 1930s that was intended as a minimal and functional response to Western boots.
Red Wing brought the Pecos back in a big way about a year ago, and they’re kicking things up a notch in partnership with Eat Dust, the badass motorcycle dudes from Belgium. Formally known as the Eat Dust x Red Wing Heritage Pecos Boot, you can call it the 673 for short. With Oro Russet Abilene roughout leather for the shaft and Oro-Russet portage leather for the actual upper, this limited edition boot will be a patina-lover’s dream come true. Its oil-resistant and nonslip sole has a bit of a heel, which makes for a sweet lookin’ boot, and apparently the roughout shaft keeps your jeans from riding up while you’re on your bike.
To get in the spirit, watch this video from Eat Dust, and get ready to pounce. Only 673 have been made!
Available for $375 from Standard & Strange.
