I haven't oiled/polished mine yet, Do you recommend that oil and whatever obenauf lp is before wearing them out extensively? Is there any reason I can't just lace and go? Thanks. 
Ended up with Size 10's for those who are keeping score. Slapped in a size 45 Pedag Leather slim insoles and that seemed to make up for the additional space and put a big of cushion in there. I'll post again once I know how they have broken in. Thanks to everyone who responded with feedback ! 
My 1907's size 10 were tight in the beginning, wore them with thick socks around the condo at night for about a week, then wore them outside... they are near perfect now.  The toe area breaks in nicely in the width. I applied 1 coat of Mink Oil which did help shorten the break in.

"... If you currently wear a size 10 in style 1907, you will want to stick with size 10 for the Iron Rangers..."  Seems to go against what some say on the forum..     thanks ! 
Yet another ever present sizing question. Thanks in advance for opinions and guidance. Looking to get a pair of IRs in Black Harness leather. I currently have the red wing heritage 1907s in size 10D that are broken in and fit great. I am a size 11.5 in Nike Free & Brooks; a 10 in almost everything else including Clark's Desert Boots in suede, chucks, too boot New York (dress shoes in general).
