I have 10.5D :uhoh: And I'm totally confused now.

 

I have Red Wing Iron Ranger size 9D and they fit perfectly!

WTF? :devil: 

I found this page. I hope it helps a little. Looks like the size between the two is the same.

Those kind of sizing charts are *not* appropriate for any kind of use, I don't honestly know why they provide it. For a proper fit, you want to be sized to where the first joint of your toe matches the flex point of the shoe. Charts like AE use are kind of an average foot kind of thing. As a personal example, my toes are very long. The joint of my toes is much farther back compared to someone else whose foot is the same length.

What basis do you have to say that pine pitch is not good for leather? Honestly curious here.

Chances are that it is bee propolis and not wax

Are 1000 Mile factory seconds marked in a certain way that makes them distinguishable?

There's usually a small mark on the outsole, close to the heel.

This obviously only applies to the Wolverines made by AE. I am not sure about their other models.

My feet is 280mm long, it's 11 inches.

As I understand it is US10 size, right?

Is it true I need to order US9 size boots to get correct fit?

 

Maybe there is someone with same feet size as my?

What size of 1000 Mile Boot do you wear?

I'm asking because I'm in Russia and there is no way to find them in local stores at my city.

I want to buy them online, but it's hard to choose correct size :(

What size should I buy?

There's nothing wrong in asking this kind of questions here. What's your European size?

If this helps, I am about EU43 (US 9.5), and I find 9.5 in 721 and 744 to be a good fit. This said, I could have also done US 10 if you intend to wear them with a heavier sock.

 

AddedIf your feet are 11 inches, your size would be about 10.5. I just checked and I am 10" which translates to US 9.5 or 10 (depending on the shoe last).

I just bought a pair of Emersons from an ebay seller, and I'm pretty sure they must be seconds from an abnormality in the moc toe stitching on one of the boots. I can't seem to find anything on the box or the boots that suggests that they were marked seconds though...

Return them, then. Even if the seller has a no-return policy, you can dispute it as item received not as advertised, and ebay will side with the buyer. You'll be out $15 for shipping vs. being unsatisfied.

So does anyone use Obenauf's LP or Sno Seal on the leather sole too?  Or just the upper?

Do that if you like to skate without skates. Seriously, any wet shiny floor surface and you run the risk of going arse over tit

Although that does sound fun, it might get tiring.  The protectant will actually worsen the already not great traction of leather huh.  

So I don't need to worry about water/snow/salt ruining the leather sole?

Well, prolonged exposure especially to salt, will take a toll but ime they'll survive. Oil the sole and you might not!

Spend $25 and get a Vibram half-sole put on. Bam! Sole protected!

I measure a size 9 on the AE shoe fitting thing-a-ma-jig. I wear size 7.5EEE AE's and they are very comfortable. I couldn't imagine wearing a larger shoe. In face, most of my shoes are size 8 and anything bigger feels very uncomfortable. I think there's a lot that goes into a proper fit for each individual.

I always assumed that Sno Seal would make my soles slipperier. Tried it this winter anyway, and much to my surprise traction has greatly improved!

No experience with Obenauf's, but anybody who's used SnoSeal before knows that it's actually quite sticky-tacky rather than greasy-slippery.
