Last month we paid a visit to the Red Wing Shoe Store in Seoul, South Korea. Opened last year, this is one of the ‘temples’ of Red Wing Heritage in Asia. The design is inspired by classic American brick factories and inside a good deal of vintage artifacts are displayed.
Inside the store we found old advertisements, vintage pairs of boots ranging all the way back to the 60′s, and old machinery that was used to craft these boots. Apart from the decor, there is obviously a wide range of Red Wing boots available for purchase, as well as shoe repair services and the care products necessary for taking care of your boots.
As temperatures dropped to -18 during our visit, we instantly recognized why a pair of Red Wing boots is helpful in Seoul’s cold climate. If you happen to be around, drop by the store!

Some of those stores around do not reflect a retail formula, but the owner’s character. And those are the best stores to drop by, as we experienced at Gasoline Alley. Talking to Burkhart, we mark his words: ‘Everything I do and did is because I like it, never because I have to.’ And when having a look in his store, one can guess what he likes.
The store is literally stuffed with memorabilia that tell a life’s story. Old motorbikes – he used to be a motor racer, model sail-yachts – he owns the boat that won Sweden a silver medal in the ’64 Olympics – and plenty of water-ski’s – he races the water on a frequent base.
Since we’re writing a blog, and not a book, we won’t go into detail on one of the largest vintage Red Wing collections seen in retail. When in Munich and looking for some history and stories, remember to stop by mr. Burkhart from Gasoline Alley.

What you see is what you get. The Japanese call his store Denim heaven. Started by his father in 1931 in downtown Munich, it is now run by Alexander. He stocks over a 1000 denims on 20 square meters.
Be sure to check out Alexander’s band Radio Bluebottle, performing in his store each tuesday evening. What one can do with 20 sq. meters.

Located in the oldest building – 14th century - in Arnhem, the Netherlands is one of our all time favorite stores. By of all time, we are as serious as one can be. The Globe sold Red Wing boots even before we officially sold boots in Europe. The store is over 30 years old and Looking at their collection of vintage boots, we can tell they have a (hi)story to tell.

Sivletto in Stockholm is one of those stores which truly embrace a lifestyle of their own. Besides getting youself a fresh pair of boots, Sivletto offers a barber and the best music records for rockabilly-fanatics. If you have to wait before getting a hair-cut, you may as well have a drink at the bar.
The store’s name is based on one of their big examples, Elvis. “I wanted to have the name Elvis in the name, though I was not allowed to use it straight forward. Therefore, we turned it around and added -tto. It’s as simple as that.”
