Made in the Land of Wheat and Maize

Philip Seymour Hoffman's inimitable talent, architecture in ice, bionic hands and more in our weekly look at the web

In an insightful mini documentary intended to reflect the spirit of their storied brand, Minnesota’s Red Wing shoes has cast a lens on fellow
Midwesterner and beautifully crooning Bon Iver frontman, Justin Vernon, who’s been wearing their classic boots for years. From an inside look at the singer’s Wisconsin studio (dubbed April Base) to a wide range of personal biographical
stories, the down-to-earth video offers a chance to see the artist as a regular guy from a regular town trying to do what makes him
most happy.
