Filson Duffle Bag and Red Wing Limited Engineer Boots - REDWING1905
The Engineer collection was originally developed for engineers working on America’s railroads. The boots with pull-on styling, used minimal stitching to protect the engineer’s feet from the hot embers that fell from the locomotive’s firebox. The buckled side gusset at the top of the boot allowed for easier bending, a necessary requirement as they needed to continuously shovel more coal into the firebox. The first engineer boots, number 919, appeared in the 1941 catalog—they were advertised as pull-on boots for engineers and truck drivers, the new engineers of the open road.

Alden x Leffot Marble Indy Boot
Alden ‘Ultimate Indy’ Boots
The Alden ‘Ultimate Indy’ in black Aniline calf leather. These flew off shelves when they were first introduced a few years back, they now make a return via Leather Soul who currently offer more versions of this boot than you have days in the year to wear them. Now, some may be shaking their heads at another mention of the Indy. The poster boot for the menswear movement has become, lets say, Ubiquitous. This version however has breathed new life into a classic, that matte black colourway bringing a chalkboard vibe and generally smartening the whole thing up.
