For those interested, the OSB boat shoes can easily be converted to a 360 lace system.  I dropped mine at my cobbler yesterday...after a quick look he said it is any easy adjustment.  Will pick them up on Saturday.

Anyone have any sizing comparison between Red Wing Beckmans and OSB Trench?
post #1265 of 1268

Hey guys, I'm buying a pair of OSB Natural Trench Boots, and I have a few questions. 1.) If I'm a 9 in Nike and a 9.5 in New Balance should I go with a 9 in the OSB's? It says on it that you want a snug fit, so I'm assuming the 9, but idk. 2.) Should I buy the Venetian Shoe cream, and treat the boots with the cream right when I buy them, or should i not use the cream until they have been worn in a bit? Thanks.

9 should fit you perfectly.  (i'm the same size)

 

Yes get VSC.  treat occasionally when leather starts looking dry.  every other month or so....depending on wear.

Thanks so much man! So don't treat right when i get them? @jmaudi0  Oh, and i just realized, that I'm actually a 9.5 in Nike and a 9 in NB... Lol, had that backwards... So should I still go with the 9?

Curious if they have ever done a makeup of the natural cap toe boot but on a Danite sole?
