The prices are usually higher if you buy them from a Red Wing company store. I would try Army Navy stores. I live in Pa. and there is this great Amish shoe store which has every boot imaginable. VERY inexpensive, like $50 less expensive. Cash only of course.
Most seem to run true to size (I have 669 logger boots for cycling) but some seem to run a little big. I think it depends on the type of boot. I can't wear their engineer boots (like J has) because they'll fall off my feet. The 669s are my size and fit perfectly.
On a side note, they are very good boots and their resale value is VERY good. I had a pair of 2299s (or something like that - steel toe logger) and they went for almost $80 on ebay. This is after I'd worn them for about 5 years. I sold them, not because they were worn out but because they lasted so long I was sick of looking at them. They re-sole their boots also.
