Hiroshi Fujiwara of fragment design has joined Red Wing for a fresh take on the 4679 Moc Toe boot. Releasing this Friday, the limited edition shoe marks Fujiwara’s first time working with the American footwear brand. Back in the ’90s, the Red Wing style was worn regularly by Fujiwara, and since then, has gained iconic status in Japan. After Daisuke Genma introduced the pair, Fujiwara and Red Wing have worked on giving the classic boot subtle, yet noticeable, updates. An extremely limited 4665 Round Toe boot will also launch alongside the Moc Toe.

Dressed in all-black chrome leather, the boots sport white soles and a black storm welt with contrasting stitching. Dual branding finishes off the upper, while black stitching and nickel eyelets offer the shoe tonal variation. “This can be said also for shoes and watches too, but a very small difference can have a huge effect,” Fujiwara told HYPEBEAST. “I experienced that through this collaboration and I also think people will notice this slight difference when they actually wear the boots.”

Beginning December 20, limited quantities of the Moc Toe boot will be available for $450 USD on Red Wing’s website and at its store in Tribeca, New York. Retailing for $400 USD, the Round Toe can only be purchased in-store.

In case you missed it, Hiroshi Fujiwara sat down with HYPEBEAST to talk about his recent work with John Smedley, his collaborative design processes and more.
