0 Comments

We've been loyal customers of Red Wing Shoes since purchasing our first pair in 1994.

The feel and fit of the boot remains familiar and comfortable (no break-in period), but the tread is totally fresh and new.

Spin Welder from Mattel 1975

How in the hell did I miss out on this Christmas gift in the 1970's?! It looks AMAZING...And dig that inline type on the box art! I wonder how many lucky 8 years olds that had the Spin Master from Mattel went on to have careers in the motorsport industry.
