Here's a quick shot of the new 877 as I know some were wondering. The color is awesome IMO and was exactly what I was looking for in my 'beat to s***' boots
BTW.....I got an 8.5D and an 8D. I'm keeping the 8.5D. If anybody wants the 8D for the $210 that I paid I'll give you the exact same price. They are brand new in box, 1st quality, retail for $280 right now. Let me know, as otherwise they're going back tomorrow morning.
The majority of the stuff I sell nowadays is actually for my roommates/friends. I keep pretty much everything I buy for myself nowadays.............learned the hard way and lost a lot of $$$ though
Anywho, these are great boots..........I don't really do the whole 'workwear' vibe, but I needed a solid tan/brown boot and these fit the bill perfectly. I don't have a 'normal' 877 to compare it to directly but the oro-legacy leather is VERY nice in person.
And here are two quick cell phone shots of the new 875. Just got them today. The Oro-legacy leather is beautiful and I like the fact that there's no Red Wing logo stamp. In real life the color of the leather is a little less orange and a little more red -- Dmash's 877's look a little truer to the color. I put these laces on, btw, the ones that come with the boots are the usual yellow/orange hiking boot ones.
^Yeah, I was also very happy there was no exterior red wing stamp, forgot to mention that. and yeah, just to reiterate, the 'orangey' hue is at a minimum in real life. That was my exact worry upon ordering. Edited by dmash - 8/6/13 at 11:32pm
