Shoes Like Pottery - Sidegoa Sneaker - Natural
We’ve admired Moonstar from a distance for some time now. The story of the Moonstar factory in Kyusyu, Japan is now one of legend. The attention to detail and fine crafting is unmatched in the industry. As we made our transition from solely a boot company to sneakers, we knew we must have the best. The process of ka-ryu or vulcanization has been perfected in their factory in Kurume since the company's inception in 1873. The canvas uppers are sewn slowly with precision while the rubber strips and soles are carefully inlaid to prepare for their infamous vulcanization process. The shoes are heated to 120° for 70 minutes making the rubber soft and gummy for your walking pleasure.
We've been waiting on this slip-on for ages. We finally were able to squeeze it into the ever-growing lineup, and we absolutely love it. It's extremely clean, with no frills other than the fact that it has this awesome grippy sole. They're a classic sneakerhead's dream!

Fit Notes: So here's the skinny. People get very confused about sizing, and the best way we know to remedy that is by comparing them to other shoes. These shoes are known to run pretty true. You can size down but you'll most likely feel the squeeze of the rubber toe cap if you do. Take your typical Converse Chuck 70 and stick with that (on the US size chart). If you land in between at an 8.5, take the next size up to a 9. Shop owner Tommy is wearing size 7.5's (which is the US 8) in the pictures.
*He is typically an 8.5 in Converse. In Red Wing, he wears an 8 in almost every last. Because these are slip ones, and he would typically not wear thicker socks or an insert, he can size down half a size to the US 8 (listed size 7.5)*
This shoe uses a different last, so they changed the list size of the shoes. Ultimately, they fit the same as the US sizes listed to the right (if you've owned Moonstar in the past, stick with the US size you bought previously.) Without an additional orthotic insole, he can wear a size 8 from Moonstar, but with an insole and thicker socks, he wears a size 9. So, essentially if you were to take these shoes out of the box, and slip them on with no sock and no insert, you're going to go with your true Red Wing boot size which may mean sizing down if you're an in-betweener. If you plan to wear your Chups or thick wool socks with these, you'll be able to size up! That's the best we've got on these and we hope it helps. Reach out with any questions.
We've been watching from the sidelines for a few years now. We have to admit, shorts were never our forte. But, we've broadened our horizon a bit in the last year and we've become shorts connoisseurs. We could no longer deny that our favorite brands were making shorts just as well as they make everything else. These have a super unique pocket design where the front gusseted pockets nearly mirror themselves as back pockets. It's got the modern flat black coated feather nickel button and an elastic waist for extra comfort. This comes very in handy with a raw denim. They feel stiff up front like a brand-new pair of jeans, but they're so easy to slip on because of that waistband. These will fade with an incredibly shadowy look. We know some guys are going to make these pop with blueberry blue in just a few months, and we can't wait to see it.
9oz Fatigue Shorts - Alpenflage Camo
We've been watching from the sidelines for a few years now. We have to admit, shorts were never our forte. But, we've broadened our horizon a bit in the last year and we've become shorts connoisseurs. We could no longer deny that our favorite brands were making shorts just as well as they make everything else. These have a super unique pocket design where the front gusseted pockets nearly mirror themselves as back pockets. It's got the classic feather nickel button and an elastic waist for extra comfort. We clearly have a bit of a problem with camo (we can't keep our hands off of it). And this is the most unique camo we've seen to date. It's full of unexpected colors and busyness that it almost becomes a plain. That's how we look at the wildest patterns. You can wear them with anything because they become their own amorphous thing.
This is a first for us. Karl has modified the "Field Shirt" slightly for this short sleeve version, but it still holds true to its origins. The major differences are the chopped-off sleeves and the more uniform pocketing. It still has a boxier silhouette and a pen slot in the left pocket. They've also used those iconic black catseye buttons. The fabric is for sure the star of the show. This selvedge twill is as buttery as buttery gets. It has a nice tight weave for a smooth finish that feels extremely luxurious. They've also given us those little pokes of selvedge ticker in the side gussets and on the placket. This shirt kind of ties it all together. It's a bit of what RGT has been known for, for so many years. It's a gorgeous piece to add to any collection.
Our favorite silhouette is back in some gorgeous new fabric. The service shirt is Karl's interpretation of a CPO. It's somewhere between a shirt and jacket leaning more towards the outerwear side with those hand-warmer pockets. They've also gone with the touch of snap buttons vs traditional buttons and holes. It's a really versatile piece that surprises us year after year. This frog camo is a funky cotton/poly blend that's very soft and lightweight giving it a shirt hand-feel. The other fun part is that it's a selvedge, and you know they're gonna give you those little pops of ticker on the placket. This variation has a bit of a crinkled look to it which we think comes from the way the fabric was printed/washed. It has a used/faded look that we really dig. Frog camo has always been a shop favorite, so this was a yes from the starter pistol.
5oz Oxford Shirt Floral Linen - Grey
It's definitely that time of year when linen comes in handy. It's a super strong fiber with a ton of breathability. The real star of the show is this insane floral print. The color palette is vastly vibrant yet easy to digest. The grey is slightly more subtle, but the contrast is even more impeccable on this one. We really enjoy the way the white acts as a perfect springboard for the color, yet the base of the shirt is still considered to be a navy/royal blue. The "Oxford Shirt" is beautifully simple with just a left-hand pocket and minimal construction throughout. These babies are wonderful summer companions.
