The Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam crew would like to make special mention of the daily updates on the new Red Wing website that they will provide. Aside from the evident focus on all things Red Wing, the site will also shine a light on any things that boots and workwear aficionado's alike would love to gather.
More soon at Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam.

On July 22nd we celebrated the one year anniversary of our Amsterdam based Red Wing shoes store. We would like to thank everybody for a legendary event.
For those of you who were not able to make it, we made a video report. It was a night of beers, burgers, bourbon and of course a few brownies (we love you Queen of Tarts).
This autumn will be all about boots and denim people. Let the rain begin!

For those of you have never stepped foot in the store, the shoes are displayed on top of steel and antique glass show cases, which are filled with coal. The dark, concrete walls have been decorated with workman's tools that date back to the days when Red Wing was a fledgling company. One wooden wall, which itself was made from materials from an old Amish water tower, is used to exhibit most of the accessories on offer. Everything between these walls reminds you of the history of Red Wing, but in a contemporary setting.Soon Red Wing Shoes Amsterdam will offer their complete assortment online too. The first official web-store of the brand will be launched next month. More about that soon. Check out all the images for a more complete interior impression or visit SXH to see more.

Last Saturday we went to the vintage car show in Hastings before we flew back the following day. Fred had told me before it was going to be a blast if the weather was nice. I guess we were lucky because the clouds looked threatening all day, but no rain.
When we arrived in Hastings we could see old muscle cars completely filling Hastings main street. I have never seen so many cool cars in one little town. Partially because the old muscle cars are more of a niche in Europe. Anyway, I was literally stunned by this collection of Mustangs, Chevelles, Challengers, Corvettes and other rare old cars. I had the time of my life strolling down the streets, checking out the cars, listening to their rumbling blocks and talking to the owners. Next year I hope to visit the car show in Minneapolis, which should be even bigger. My favorite was a yellow Charger. What is your favorite muscle car?

Last week Red Wing Shoes published another lovely video. This time Red Wing shines a light on the Hallett Dock Company. The workmen of the company that dates back to 1959 have been depending on Red Wing Shoes for as long as they can remember. The video shows the boots in some characteristic American action. Just the way we like it. Source: SlamXhype.
