World’s Largest Redwing Boot (via Atlas Obscura)

Local shoe repair and key cutting legends Bannister and Son stock Redwing Boots.
I thought of them when I saw this post on Atlas Obscura about the world’s largest Red Wing Boot, in Red Wing Minnesota.
I’m not sure how the staff at Bannister’s would cope with repairing this bad boy, but they’d give it a crack.

Solovair Boots

I bought/ordered a pair of Solovair boots from D’Honk Scooters when I was last in Melbourne. Darren Shaw was a pleasure to deal with, and when the (slow boat) shipment arrived he mailed them over. Solovair are hand made in England, made by a factory that used to make Doc Martens before their manufacturing was moved to Asia. They’re a significant investment, and may well see me out for my boot needs.

Out With The Old, In With The New

My family think I have attachment issues.
But it was time for a new pair of shoes.
