Apparently the Munson Boot RW's are a roughout leather that has been oiled and waxed.
thank god they didn't use the actual munson last
I just ordered a pair of Red Wing 2970 Engineer boots and am super excited. I bought a pair of 1907 boots a earlier in the year and I am kind of glad they were too small since the last thing I need in my closet is another pair of 6" boots. I sold them to my neighbor for cheap to fund a motorcycle boot. Since I don't have a boot taller then 6" I went with the 2970.
I was in the air between 877 and 2970, I would have preferred laces, but I was looking for a 10"-12" boot and the 877's are only 8". I would have loved a pair of White's Nomads with a double leather mid sole and Vibram 100 sole but I had to stick with the 2970's because of price.
I saved $46.50 with a coupon I found online so I paid the extra $12 for 2 day shipping and hopefully my helmet and gloves will show up the same day.
I can't wait to them to look like this:
Does anyone own a pair of 2970's on here?
If so let me know your tips or experiences with them.
ugh that color is so nice.making me want to get the moc boots version instead.i'm not sure if i can pull of this engineer boots
i can't really help in terms of weather,but living in SEA where the weather is alway hot RW feels fine so far.
i like the crepe/christy sole better,it just comes comfy straight away compared to my RW iron ranger.there might also be a chance that i'm not used to heels that made me not so comfy in my iron ranger.
