You might think about removing the insole if there's one in there. If not then you need to sell on ebay and go up a .5 size. 1907 run small compared to something like the GT. My experience with them is true to size as well. While I have like an inch of toe space in my 11.5D GT, I...
I think part of the reason there is so much sizing confusion is that people are comparing sneakers to boat shoes to boots to whatever else. I don't really feel sneakers are ever a good frame of reference for sizing a pair of boots. Imo, take your standard dress shoe size or brannock size and go from there. What you fit in a pair of sneakers without any width options is not going to always represent what you might fit in a boot or dress shoe with different widths available.
Three quarters Norwegian and one quarter English. Grew up in Minnesota. I've got darker blond hair than many real Scandinavians seem to have but have a similar tall build (although my build is a bit slimmer than many of my relatives).

Considering many on this forum already size down 1/2 to 1 size for their GTs, I'm not sure if that's sound advice here. I'd say it's more accurate for some of the more true to size Red Wing models though. I wear my 1907s in my true dress shoe size of 11.5D and they fit pretty close to my 10.5D Dayton cap toe boots (can't say how those compare to the service boots though).
I was charged last week and have not received an email confirmation. I don't know if that's their policy (can't recall if I ever got one with my other pair of Daytons).
Pretty glad I jumped on this last week. It was still 4-6 weeks wait then. After reddit I imagine it could it could end up even longer than 10 for some orders. Although I waited like 4 months for my last pair of Russell Moccasins, so even 10 weeks is not that terrible.
I no longer seem to be able to edit my old thread so I'm making a new one to add an item and update prices (forgive me mods). All prices include shipping within the continental US and Paypal fees. First is Samurai 130XJ. These are from Samurai's Jin line (same left-hand twill as the 110XJ) and are a Lee 101B 1930s style repro. They were purchased from 2ND Store in Japan for about $320. They were hot soaked and then worn only a few times. If you want, I will also throw in...
I never understood the appeal of the bent sole on the originals. In fact, what appealed to me was really the shape/style of the boot, not the W+H distressing. I'm really glad to be getting Dayton's version now without all the superfluous details for much cheaper. I hope most of you will be able to enjoy the boots for what they are and not destroy them trying to soak/bend them into the W+H version.
