Red Wing Heritage Moc 8″ Style NO. 877 Boot

When it comes to durable long lasting boots, Red Wings are one of the most sought after boots on the market. The Red Wing Moc 8″ Style No. 877 Boot is about as classic as it gets with color cues from the coat of an Irish Setter hunting dog. They are a rich russet color, colored from the bark of the great Sequoia tree. These boots were originally made to be an optimal hunting boot with a quiet sole for stalking prey. Nowadays, they are about as in style as any moto rider or guy with a little fashion sense could handle.

Features

  • 100% Leather
  • Made in USA

  • 8-inch classic lace-up boot with moc toe and full grain leather
  • 63-inch tan/gold taslan lace

These 8″ boots work well on the moto due to the high ankle protection from rode debris, temperature fluctuations and hot exhaust pipes. They provide a very sturdy base with their white crepe rubber compound that performs well at stop lights and standing on pegs alike.

I have resoled my boots once in the 9 years I have owned them and once you get them back with the gleaming new white sole… it’s like you’re lacing up a brand new pair perfectly shaped to your foot. Another thing to consider with Red Wing Boots is the free oil and shoelaces at all retail locations across the country.
