Hello, we are RADIAN , the shoe cobbler located in Aichi prefecture, Japan.
We specialize in repairing and customizing dress shoes and boots ,etc.
There is a large variety of boots in Redwing lineup.
Irish setter, Beckman, Iron Ranger, Pecos, Engineer, and so on.
Every product is so attractive that I want to own all of them if I can afford to buy them.
However life is not so simple..
I got Beckman Flatbox 1 year ago as my first Redwing boots and I’ve worn it regularly almost every day though, to be honest, I want another pair of Redwing boots…
I want another one, but my wallet is empty.
Anyway, I guess many people, especially those who are not familiar with shoe cobbler, think the only way to newly get a pair of boots is just to purchase it.
But the answer is No.
You might get your favorite boots by “customizing” your old boots. Boots can be born again with totally different look.
Change Red Wing 8160 to Beckman
In this case the customer’s order was to customize 8160
to Beckman, which has high popularity in Japan.
The original soles of 8160 are white crepe rubber soles.
(see the below picture)
And the original sole of Beckman is black rubber sole
with brown leather mid sole.
These two of them looks completely different from each other, and apparently it’s almost impossible to fill the owner’s order. However, what if you change soles,
The impression of the boots can be completely changed.
The look of Soles are as important as the shape, color of the boots. (Shoe race is also one of the important factor as well)
You can see how the boots were changed
Please enjoy it.
And some pictures below after customizing.
16,000 JPY + TAX
