Red Wings do not "run large". They're sized to fit like boots Because, well, they are boots. They're meant to be worn with thicker socks and intentionally have extra toe room.
If you choose to wear them to fit like shoes and choose to wear them with thinner socks, that's your prerogative, but they certainly aren't being intentionally mislabeled by Red Wing to have to be worn "sized down". They're sized as they're meant to be worn by Red Wing according to one's Brannock size.
I never said they were mislabeled. But if yo have excessive room in the front of your boots, thats on you. Just because they are "boots" is not an excuse for sizing wrong. I also dont see why we are arguing about this in this thread. Poor fitting footwear is poor fitting footwear, regardless of if its a boot or a flip flop. But for the record, not all lasts fit like a brannock. Some Oak Streets dont either, thus the size down half a size thing that probably started this discussion.
