Just a daily reminder that Red Wing / Heritage boots are literally reddit-tier and you're more than likely a pasty neckbeard with no taste if you're even considering buying them.

>She even greeted me with 'Hold on, I have to go help this guy with some Heritage models' as I walked in. She explained that most RW retailers won't touch Heritage boots because "16 and 17 year olds get them from their mommies and want to return them when they're too stiff", and that they only have 4 lasts of that line with no sizes below 9.

I'm laughing so hard. I can't believe people buy these pieces of shit.

Disgusting neckbeard boots, IRs are pathetic. Just flat out pathetic.

There is objectively nothing wrong with RW from a fashion perspective. Only thing that's wrong is your head up your ass, and everyone is entitled to an opinion.
>>
What's wrong with them?
>>
>>10670930
/fa/ cares more about brands and what people think than if clothes look good/unique/interesting. We don't like RW because everyone wears RW.

Attempts to copy the artistic forms of others are drole. You should be pushing the medium in new directions so people will look at YOU and say 'I want to be that'.

did you even read >>10670943

he says you should wear things because you think they look good, not because other people (/fa/ and mfa) tell you to wear them/are wearing them.
>>
>>10670943
I've literally never seen anyone other than me wear shoes that would even closely resemble Red Wing. Where the hell do you live if you think that everyone wears them?
>>
>>10670983
That accusation holds zero water. No I have not bought those and have yet to come across them with my own eyes.

I'm not going to defend RW either. But stop lying to yourself just. Just because someone tells you that RW is shit, then you shouldn't obey that opinion. Develop your own opinion instead

Man I've gotta find the post from a year ago about the same thing. I kek'd so hard, can you imagine these MFA dudes walking into their Red Wing stores where a bunch of hicks are buying work boots and they ask for heritage boots for "muh fashionz".

The images in my head are hilarious.
>>
I don't really understand how RW has achieved such meme status, they only look like they belong on a fit when you go full heritage and the entire heritage style is fucking awful
>>
That interaction probably went something like this:

>In view, a humble vaudevillian vemale, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fashion.
>This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the working populi, now vacant, vanished!
>As our paths cross, i seek to invest copious of my dearest bullion in your wonderful heritage leather footworks my fair maiden.
>Please allow me to allow you to speak. *Tips heritage denim jacket*

Standard RW work boots are priced well above what most working types would pay. Most workers buy the shit Walmart sells.

lmao all the people mad over a post years ago
then again its true - most RW retailers mostly cater to work boots, hell even employment encourages veterans to apply

knowing the mean age of fa is around 20, im pretty sure most people who cherish their RWs have the cookiecutter outfit (pic) of raw muhcones denim and a chore coat - all while states away from the midwest and shopping at Uniqlo or some shit
>>
i dont do any actualy physical "work" but I want my red wings to look dirty and beat up, so i walk out to my parking lot at night when no ones around and throw dirt on them and try to rub it in. someone saw me and started laughing . also, i had one girl tell me that my iron rangers look like "old man boots". i dont get where that comes from. I think they look pretty good.

I knew a guy like you in high school who used to purposefully rub his doc martens on the concrete to make it look like he'd been sleeping outside in them. He was a poser punk and everybody knew it. Don't fuck up your clothes just to put out a fake image man. It's obvious as hell and people won't respect your style.

I bought RWs and I don't have any regrets. Nobody spouts off memes in the real world. Think about it, would the average person associate these boots with pretentious shut-ins? No.

I agree, look at the neckbeard tryhard basement dwelling faggot wearing his shitty unfashionable reddit clothes that only dumb cücks that know zero about fashion would be caught dead in, topped by these Redwing heritage line chelseas that are literally reddit-tier trash that only neckbeard virgin redditors that aren't effay at all would wear

i have these too
nice boots

OP is correct. I have tried on rwh roughnecks and they sucked donkey dick. Not only did they not fit in double wide but they were like wearing particle board strapped to the shittiest untreated leather.

By the way most heritage styles are obsolete. Boots did not used to be a fashion statement. The roper boot killed these boots in the 1800's being more functional, tougher, more element proof, better fitting, easier to get on etc. From a practical standpoint pull ons are better in every single way.

So the only reason to get these boots is if you are a tryhard hipster faggot trying to impress everyone with your outdated Shit tier boots

Not necessarily,since they're shit they wear out fast enough a lot end up going for better ones after a few pairs.Funnily enough when my father did it they lasted long enough he never needed another pair.

Don't fall for the meme. No Red Wings are "cringe" or "shit" except for the ones that can't be resoled.

funny, I've had my 1ks for five years and they're still great
actually they're my beaters at this point

srsly though just wear what you like
red wings are no more ridiculous than any other popular shoe like Qasas, CPs, or Geos
they all fit particular looks

Given how so much attention is spent on designer sneakers that no adult would wear, and the incessant meme spouting, I'd say you're right

the point being that all the people buying chelseas right now are poor teens who have to cop some $200 alternative to actually nice shoes

the only people ive seen wear them are asians and bearded assholes with quaffed hair.

they look fine but its the stigma associated with them that I dont like.

i totally understand why a rw employee would look down on a customer wanting to get a pair of ir's, they are used to dealing with construction workers not "fashionistas"
