When a classic gets an update, it’s hard not to pay attention. Especially when it is something like Red Wing Heritage’s old school 8830 work boots.
These things were modeled after the 877, a boot first released way back in 1953. After hitting the market, it became a favorite among hunters and blue collar laborers alike. Now, well over 50 years later, the work boot is not only still popular, but it is getting a slight update with the 8830 model. Red Wing Heritage is now using their popular Copper Rough & Tough leather with the Goodyear welt construction for the upper, while using a Traction Tred outsole for solid grip. All of this makes the classic boot not only ready for work – whatever that may be – but it gives it an unmistakably handsome and timeless look that is hard to pass up. You can add one to your wardrobe for $290. [Purchase]
