The Spirit Lake boots are lace-up footwear that is based around the popular Iron Ranger model offered by Red Wing. It’s a brown leather, 8in boot with firm ankle protection and a double layer toe-cap that Indian say make “a favourite for around-town styling, comfort and rugged support.”
The second men’s boot is the Worthington, which is based around Red Wing’s classic Engineer boot. It’s an 11in pull-on boot that features plain toe styling, Black Harness leather with Indian buckles and an embossed logo.
The final boot is the women’s specific Connelly, named after Catherine Connelly who was one of the brand’s earliest female riders. It’s based on the Red Wing Engineer boot. Like the Worthington, the Connelly is an 11in boot and features plain toe styling, heeled oil- resistant cushion crepe sole to provide grip and lighter weight, and an instep strap to adjust the fit. It’s finished with Indian Buckles and an embossed logo.
There’s no exact date from Indian when the boots will be available but they have commented saying that they will be in dealerships soon
