Anyone who owns Redwing Iron Rangers can attest that they run typically one size large. If you own a pair of Allen Edmonds and RedWing Iron Rangers can you compare the size between the two?
Red Wing Iron Ranger Size Compared to Allen Edmonds
I've owned Daltons in 9 (sold it after I got my Loakes Burfords with dainite sole).
My IR are size 9 as well (but I could have easily gone down to 8.5 and still comfortable..I just like to wear thick wool socks so went with 9).
And love my IRs and really put it to pace right now in winter/rain/snow. Highly recommend the IR's (mine's the 8119 with vibram sole).
I'd say the IR's probably run a 1/2 to full size bigger than AE.
