If the 877 is the iconic Red Wing boot, the 875 is a close second. Almost identical in look, it was built to address the work customer that preferred a shorter boot. The 6” style is purpose-built with premium Red Wing Oro-iginal leather, Goodyear welt construction, a white Traction Tred sole and triple stitched quality.

My favorite leather color is brown and this 875 leather simply won my heart. The Oro-iginal Leather looks like the veg-tan leather had a good tan.
Decided to apply some Obenauf's LP on it prior to first wear.
I do emphasize more detail application on the leather joint area as I see it as the most vulnerable part where rain and dirt will get stuck there.
And a family shot of my Red Wing shoes. :)
As you can see from the last picture, after application of Obenauf LP and leaving it to dry, the color remains the same as before application!
