Red Wing for J. Crew Round Toe Boots – $138 ($240) | Beckman moc-toe – $186 ($320)
*Use code OURTREAT for this extra 40% off price. The graphics do tend to say that it’s good on “final” sale items, but it still works here, even though they aren’t labeled as final sale. Code expires 1/25/12. Credit Geoff with the style tip.
Red Wing is a name that deservedly carries with it a ton of weight. Hell, they’re worshiped by some. And J. Crew excels at these types of collaborations/partnerships which they’ve labeled as their “in good company” offerings.
But not everyone can lace up a pair of Red Wings without feeling like they should be singing this:
For the Round Toe Boots: Crazy cheap for Red Wings which are made in the USA. Ugly, but a good ugly to some. Like a bulldog. Goodyear welt construction, dark brown tanned suede, and a couple sets of laces. But would you wear them? And what about the price?
For the Beckman moc-toe: Jeebus. Look at em’. These are like a well endowed woman showing a devastating amount of cleavage. They are big and they are hard to ignore. They’ll walk into the room before you do. Wear them with jeans and a plain sweater and everyone will keep looking at your feet. Under $200. But would you wear them? And are they still out of your price range?
It’s worth mentioning that the code OURTREAT takes the extra 40% off, and while the graphics on J. Crew’s website says it’s good on “final sale” items, the fine print reads: “40% off discount applies to J.Crew sale and Factory sale online items only. “ So for now, it looks like they can be sent back if they don’t fit since they’re not labeled in the usual red text as final sale.
Would you wear one but not the other? Both? Neither? Leave it all in the comments section below…
