Having a wonder around Soho in London wasn't really something I had planned until I saw Karlmond's Carnaby Street Shopping Guide. Inevitable I knew I'd walk down the iconic street at some point but I imagined it would only to be cutting through to Brewer Street (will posted about that soon). I'd seen online that Red Wing had recently opened their first UK store and ever since had been on my mental do-to list to visit the store, have a nose and of course try on a couple of pairs.

After stopping off at Ben Sherman, Filson, Happy Socks and Levi's Vintage Clothing I headed down to Red Wing Shoe Store on Newburgh St, located on the corner of Ganton St. The superbly dressed shopkeeper let me snap away and also offered me some advice for when I was ready to purchase me first pair. Note the small workshop display located at the back of the store, filled with archive photos, tools and old boots. A really nice touch, which shares the company's rich history. As well as footwear they stocked caps, shoe care, Field Notes Drink Local notebooks and their brand new range of leather belt.
