RED WING Moc Toe 9874
The exclusive Irish Setter Limited Series is complete. The 9874 Moc Toe in the exclusive Black Klondike leather, with all its bells and whistles, is now available in limited quantities in Europe. This boot is as close to the iconic hunting style, created in 1953, as you can get. The special Black Klondike leather is made from a brown base crust with a black paint finish that gradually wears off to reveal the brown color underneath. The unique vintage look makes this leather finish extremely popular in Japan. The dark brown heavy leather laces give this style an edge. In the upper shaft the boot has a traditional imprint, common in the 1950s, and both gusset tongues feature an embossment on the outside. The gusset tongue features the original design of the woven Irish Setter label. This label was later printed rather than woven and featured various designs.
The front of this boot features a quarter stitch at the most common stress point, strengthening the moc-stitching. Red Wing hasn't used this method since the 1980's and in order to find the correct machine, the Red Wing Shoe Company had to reach out to a retired employee. The top band has a 2 row stitch and even the Mahogany and Sage colored thread is almost identical to the 1950s material. This special boot comes in a special shoebox, which is a replica of the old Irish Setter cartons. What more could you ask for?
