While the Red Wing Lifestyle collection has taken great strides to bring some of the best casual wearing models back to North American and Europe, there still seems to be a number of great looking boots that we just can't get here. The engineer boot is a little bit tougher to adopt to your everyday look for most westerners, while in Japan it seemed to be the boot of choice from a number of brands and styles when we visited this fall. This version by Red Wing comes in a nicely treated leather but the upper is made from an oiled canvas. The colour of the boot really looks great with the white traction tread sole and white stitching. I've definitely been tempted to pick up a pair of engineer boots myself, but I think something like this might be a little bit easier to get into than all leather.
