Red Wing Heritage 8118 Boot for SHIPS (Japan)

There’s something a pinch off-putting about this collaboration between venerable Japanese supply house SHIPS and stalwart American bootmaker Red Wing that we can’t quite put our big toe on. That gross visual aside, what we’re seeing and not clicking with here might be the black and beige juxtaposition. Though those colors can easily work together, here they seem primed for pairing with something in an acid-washed denim—ready to go to work in a ’90s boy band, perhaps. Given the Supersole’s pedigree, durability is a given, and the silhouette is definitely à la mode. Maybe the colorway will grow on us, but that is of little consequence if it’s already grown on you.
