Indian Motorcycle is adding to the apparel range for 2017 with new rider wear, gloves, casual wear and an exclusive range of boots made in partnership with Red Wing Shoes. (See below for the full list with prices.)
The Worthington boot is named after the street in Springfield, Massachusetts, where Indian Motorcycle began full-scale production in 1902, the Spirit Lake boot is named after the factory in Iowa where Indian is now made and the Connelly women’s boot is named after Catherine Connelly of Owatonna, Minnesota, one of Indian’s earliest female riders and loyalists. Even during the Depression, Catherine and her husband made periodic trips to Springfield to buy new Indian Motorcycles and they would ride them back to Owatonna.
Based on Red Wing Shoes’ classic Engineer style boot, the Worthington ($400) has been modified for Indian Motorcycle riders. This 11-inch pull-on boot features plain toe styling, a Vibram 430 sole for grip and abrasion resistance, and an instep strap for precise fitting. They feature Black Harness leather, Indian Motorcycle buckles, embossed logo, Goodyear welt construction and puritan chain stitching.
