Baseball trivia time: Who was the Splendid Splinter? If you don’t know, turn in your sports expert card right now. The legendary Ted Williams was Michael Jordan-good. How do we know? Because he had a shoe made for him decades before teenagers were trampling each other for Air Jordans.

Now Red Wing Heritage is out with a new work boot that’s based on the Super Setter 888, a lightweight and durable model that was at the top of its class in 1963. This here is the Kangatan 8180. It features the signature green colorway made from Portage cowhide leather, unlike the Setter, which was crafted from kangaroo hide. To mark the occasion, Red Wings is also putting out special edition baseballs that are made from the same leather. [Purchase]
