So I've been looking for a pair of boots lately and the two most recommended boots that I've gotten have been the:
Red Wing Iron Rangers
Wolverine 1000 Mile
At first I always thought these boots seemed too bulky / boxy but I keep revisiting them because I can't seem to get an accurate picture in my head of how they REALLY look.
The reason is because they can look extremely flattering/nice in certain pics and not so much in others. I also can't see them in person because I am currently not in a place that has any stores with them in stock.
Here is what I mean by sexy / not so sexy.
I honestly can't tell if its just the way the "NOT SEXY" ones are being worn or if they just look like that. The main thing that I am afraid of are thick toes and thats what some of these pictures depict.
I really want to like these boots but I am seriously riding the fence. I don't want to lug around a pair of "work boots" looking shoes. Especially because I'm on the shorter side (5'8-5'9) and bulky shoes would make me seem even shorter.
I also can't decide between the 2 shoes.
Can anyone offer any advice/suggestions between these 2 shoes?
sizing, quality, durability, color accuracy, etc.
Sole material? (iron ranger looks like rubber sole VS. Wolverine looks like leather sole)
I've generally got the vibe that both boots are great quality/durability. But color can vary from picture to picture and sizing can vary as well. (I'm typically 9.5/10)
I believe I've already looked through many threads about these two shoes but if you feel like a certain pic/post on a thread would solve my issue please feel free to post, I'd greatly appreciate the help.
Thanks ahead of time.
Are the dark brown iron rangers not popular? or are they not being made as much anymore?
Most sites either sell black/amber/hawthorne and exclude the dark brown color....why?
