Red Wing Shoes / $5.99 / $270 New
It was looking like another day of "nada" in my thrift shopping adventures. I decided to double back and see if I missed anything in the shoe racks. Whether I missed these, or they put these out while I was looking around elsewhere, I don't know. But as far as thrift-shopping gold goes, I hit the jackpot with these.
These go for $260-$270 new. This pair is in great condition, already broken in a little bit. They're sturdy, hefty, lifetime boots.
The problem for me is that they're a size 8. I can barely get my foot in there with thin socks. Though I can repeatedly succeed, it's not quite worth my discomfort to wear these guys around. My half-size-small Doc Martens are one thing. These hurt to put on. So I figured somebody else would like them more than I do.
These have plenty of adventures and years left to live in them. I'm currently selling them on Grailed right here - https://www.grailed.com/listings/1114812 if you're interested!
