For Today’s Fade of the Day, we’re taking it back with a true classic. Pete Sullivan from the United Kingdom sent in his 8-year-old pair of Red Wing Heritage 6″ Moc Toes, which prove that age and beauty can go hand in hand.
These boots were Pete’s daily work and leisure boot over the years. After three re-soles and leather reinforcement to the inside back heel after the original was worn through, these boots are still in the game. Regular cleanings and treatment with mink oil twice a year have helped to keep the leather in good condition and the color has remained vibrant. Crisscross creasing in the toes balances everything out for a full package of well-worn awesomeness.
