8180 vs 8273
2014 vs 2003
This month Red Wing Heritage re-released the 8180 Moc-Toe Boots in the Green Kangatan Portage leather. It’s one of the most anticipated releases for me this year, since this color was high on my most-wanted-list of Red Wing products.
After a day or 2 I also found these amazing deadstock 8273 Engineer Boots in the same green Kangatan leather as the 8180’s. I’ve never seen these before. Even on Google there were a handful of images and info about these. I checked it with Kay (Red Wing Berlin) and he confirmed these are a legit pair. Never owned a pair of Engineers before, so to start with a pair like these is a very good way to start.
Thanks to Kay for helping me out with the info/verification and Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam for helping me out with the 8180’s.
