Continuing with their ongoing Made in USA campaign, which also included a release with RRL last year, BLENDS has unveiled their follow up to that with these 6″ Round Toe Red Wing boots. For this project. BLENDS creative director Tak Kato went with an all black suede upper, which is something never done before with this style in the USA.
Other details include tonal stitching was used throughout the upper – with the exception of contrasting white stitching above the sole – to tone down the boot. Tasteful silver eyelets were also utilized, but 3 hooks were used in lieu of eyelets on the top, which was inspired by classic Irish Setter sport boots. 150 of these will be available at all 3 Southern California BLENDS locations on December 10.
