Now available at the Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam: the Red Wing Shoes 8180 Kangatan Green!

A new style reappears once again in the Red Wing Heritage catalogue. It is only a modest 51 years ago that Red Wing Shoes released its 888 SuperSetter boot exclusively to Sears. This SuperSetter carried this honorable name because of its arrange of incredible characteristics. Red Wing Shoes used Australian Kangaroo hide leather, a Scottish zug leather vamp, an English overlay pac toe, German speed laces, Norwegian reverse water-repellent welting, Swiss Vibram lug soles and Red Wing, Minnesota, construction. Because of these impressive features the SuperSetter got to carry the quality label of former Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams. The famous striker was a true outdoor enthusiast, whose name became a brand that labeled only the most premium sports and outdoor gear sold at Sears. For those reasons the image of the strikingly green beauties was never forgotten in Minnesota. Therefore, not surprisingly, the Red Wing Kangatan Green sport boot is given an homage in the form of the Red Wing Shoes 8180 6’’ Kangatan Moc-toe boot. The iconic features of Ted’s old green SuperSetters has been a source of inspiration in the making of this new Kangatan Boot. The Red Wing Shoes 8180 6'' Classic Moc Toe in Kangatan Green features our classic Traction Tred outsole, Goodyear Welt construction, nickeled brass equipment and unique green Kangatan Portage leather and is now exclusively available in our online shop.
