On your marks, get set, go! From today onwards a limited amount of the 9874 Moc Toe (http://bit.ly/2kUOtG5) in the exclusive Black Klondike leather is available in Europe with all its bells and whistles. The leather is made from a brown base crust with a black paint finish that gradually wears off to reveal the brown color underneath. In the upper shaft the boot has the traditional imprint, which was common in the 1950s and both gusset tongues feature an embossment on the outside. When you look into the gusset tongue, one can find a woven Irish Setter label with its original dog design. Moving to the front of the shoe this boot has a quarter stitch at the most common stress point of the Moc Toe at the height of the small toe, strenghtening the moc-stitching. Red Wing stopped utilizing this method in the 1980’s because it was not needed anymore. In order to utilize this rectangular bar tack again, the Red Wing Shoe Company had to reach out to a retired employee in order maintain the needed machine. The top band has a 2 row stitch. This special boot comes in a special shoebox, which is a replica of the old Irish Setter cartons. Get yourself a pair before they are gone!
