    I like RedWings very much. Very too much.
    Psssst, can you stop those dorks from saying "colorways?" It would help.

    On Saturday the host of NPR's "The Splendid Table" used the word "foodway".

    I threw up a little in my mouth.

    Very nice and I could use a pair now. Anyone know what model they are I didn't see them on the RW site, are they available now or will I have to wait until Fall?

    The ones posted above are not available until the fall. Bummer, right?

    No more than you NEED 10 bikes, but I'm sure you can make the case.

    I just ordered a new pair on Friday, the 1907s. But my girlfriend isn't a fan of the wedge sole. So I think I'm a shoe-in (har har) for the pair posted above come fall. I'll just wear the current pair every g@ddamned day until she can't stand them anymore.

    Funny, though. I think that if I rode my bike every day, she still wouldn't give a shit about its appearance, or think a new one would be in order.

    Interesting option...... DIY Sous Vide Heating Immersion Circulator for About $75 | Seattle Food Geek

    Me, I would like a Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX fisheye lens......perhaps more likely than your Sous Vide circulator, but not much, at the moment anyway.

    Being in the construction biz I wore Redwings for years. Last two pairs I bought were Ecco. They are butta for me. The new 'wings do look nice though.

    +1 on the Red Wings. I gotta thing for boots.

    I saw that suitcase of courage on a guy's blog; that was a handmade birthday gift to this guy from some friends. He lives here in Portland. So, if you want it, you're gonna have to get some talented friends...

    That colt + rane blog blows my mind. I hadn't seen it before, so thanks...

    BTW - Blackbird in Seattle has that Redwing boot in J. Cash BLACK. Very limited sizes.

    Is the Bulleit Frontier any different from the normal stuff? Nice packaging ... I think Brass Knuckles can't be sold to FL residents though.

    Red Wings were good enough from my grandpa, so they're certainly good enough for me.

    Of course mine aren't the fashionable type that Red Wing has started to cobrand with J Crew, but they're functional.

    I have a similar set, but the toes on mine are more pointed and the stitching/seam lay flat. I rarely wear them since the heal fits a bit sloppy.

    On the Alden tip, I've been wanting, and finally got a pair of these:
