Red Wing x Nigel Cabourn “The Munson Boot”
For Fall 2012 Red Wing and Nigel Cabourn will present their first collaboration ever. The Munson boot includes a strong attention to both detail and overall quality. The most prominent feature of the Munson is the shape of its toe, which is built to follow the line of the tips of the toes. The leather used is an oiled roughout leather used with the flesh side facing out. Switching the direction of the leather ensures that even if the rough exterior is scratched, the grain will remain unbroken, which results in superior waterproofing. Other features include army green Harris tweed lining, deep green thick leather shoelaces and matching eyelets. The boot comes in two colors of light-brown Hawthorne Muleskinner and the darker Chocolate Muleskinner starting late this year.
