Red Wing Shoes x Indigofera Jeans 4328 Climber Boot
This variant is sold out
The #4328 is inspired by the #919 Lineman Boot, which was first released in 1977, a time period when 8-inch boots were a common staple to the Red Wing collection. The Indigofera crew are big fans of tall Red Wing styles, such as as the Engineer, Logger and Pecos, so it was a natural decision deciding on the direction of the #4328, what we also call “Climber Boot”.
One unique detail on the #4328 Climber Boot is the green Vibram sole, originally used on Red Wing Lineman boots back in 1956. Vibram continues to produce all Red Wing rubber soles used today, however it is unclear as to why the green colour was significant for the Lineman Boots. One theory is that it was an indication that the sole was compounded with the EH (Electrical Hazard) insulation between you and the ground; so if you happened to touch a live/hot wire, you wouldn’t get shocked. It gave wearers confidence that the shoe you were wearing was guaranteed to be safe whilst working up high lines.
Red Wing Heritage and Indigofera’s friendship began in 2009; the two brands have worked together, wore each other’s products, partied and laughed together, so it was only logical that one day they would cross “business” paths and create a collaboration.
Though there are over one hundred years difference between Red Wing and Indigofera’s launch, both brands fit like a glove when it comes to style, quality and vision. 600 pairs were made - available in 42 stores globally.
The boots are provided with two pairs of laces (Taslan & Leather) & a limited edition of 12 postcards especially made for this boot.
