Red Wing 875 vs Classic Lifestyle - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Perhaps I'm a unfashionable heathen, but white rubber soles look awful on leather products. Leave them to sneakers.

I'm confused. I have the 8138's (right now, on my feet) and unless the tag on the inside of the tongue is lying, these are Made in the USA.

FWIW, I love these to shreds. I don't know much about the 875's, but these 8138's have broken in beautifully, are completely waterproof so far (that's saying something, given the amount of rain they've seen here in London) and have been really comfortable straight out the box.

Oh, and size down a half size.

8138s and RWIs are two completely different boots bro

That's where my confusion lies, then. Whatever. 8138 == money.

The 875 boot is a classic. Whether you like it or not is another matter. One benefit of the white rubber is non-marking soles. They are comfortable, which is good, too.

I know dude. It's just aesthetically unpleasing to me. And by aesthetically unpleasing, I mean my eyes burn every time I see them.

Hello to everyone . I havea problem with my 875s and I'm desperate. I had bought a pair 9.5 D and it was snug but fine for the first 2-3 months . After this period the boot started feeling totally uncomfortable at the toe box like it had shrunk ??( Dont they suppose to stretch instead ) . After a painful month that this started to happen I sold them and bought a 10d . Everything fine , my right boot even felt a bit loose , left boot snug but perfect. Guess what ! After a month of wearing them they feel uncomfortable as well at the toe box like they shrunk again ! If I get a 10.5 my right foot will be totally loose and sliding . Will the toe box soften and stretch eventually ? My big toe on my left boot is exactly in between the two stitching of the moc toe.. any help appreciated ..
