just got rid of a pair on ebay

picked them up as a "salesman's sample" but they were crazy small.

I take a 7 in most RWs and these were a 6........gave 'em a shot but they were hella small...........

They were pretty cool. Dunno if they fit the guy who picked them up from me........ if so, he may be the only one on earth w/ a pair as I see no sign of them ever really being released

Actually I called my local RW store and they're sending a few pairs to the store for me to try on. Stoked.

The only thing I don't dig is the lug sole on what is otherwise RW's dressiest boot. Anyone know if this type of sole wears down to not be so luggy?

Sherman has the 9030 Beakman in stock - sweet!

Is anyone familiar with the 224 last? I'm guessing I'd have to size down one-half, esp with wool socks.

Does anyone have experience with Sherman Shoes? The thing that concerns me is the pic on the site is a rip from Red Wing's site and they didn't even get the name right, it's "Beckman" not "Beakman". I emailed the store and they aren't able to send me pics of either the 9029 or 9030.

The last info is available for all the boots here: http://www.redwingheritage.com/boots

224 is basically the Beckman last, you should be able to find at least one of the 224 last styles at a local shop to try on.

The leather still has its classic reddish-brown color everywhere except in the toe area, where it's basically turned grey or black. It also has places where the top of the leather has been torn and scrapped away. They look good but I feel they would be better if I could get them cleaned up a bit. So far I have washed them with saddle soap and applied leather conditioner.

Should I attempt to recondition them myself? If so, how?

Apply some mahogany shoe polish?

Should I send them to RW?

Anyone?

Just call a red wing store and ask their advice. In my experience the stores are knowledgeable and good about that kind of thing. If that doesn't work send them in (but try to learn what they did so you can do it yourself next time.)

I tried a pair at Nordstrrom a few months ago. I believe a half size down from my dress shoe size fit fine. Personally I prefer the tan suede version of this chukka ( http://jakedavis.typepad.com/jakedavis/2009/04/retail-therapy-red-wing-wabasha-chukka.html ), but $139 seems like a nice deal for the three models available via that link.

They look great and are new for this season. I believe they are a reissue from the 1950's. Got any specific questions?
post #1229 of 2736
well.. i wanted to know if the style is good? I kinda like it. but i guess i got my answer

how well does it stand up against all the snow slush and salt?

also they exceedingly hard to find even for normal size here in toronto. My feet are 13 if i buy Nike/addidas. The largest one i can find in retail is a 12.. and i hear they are true to size so if i special order one then its final sale. but its much easier to find a pair of timberland

like

pTBL1-7389815v275.jpg

or

pTBL1-9867119v275.jpg

which are about $220 after tax vs $340 redwings.

what should i do?

Go for the Wings! They'll be fine in snow and slush.
