Red Wing Boots - Your Opinion - Page 88

Nordstrom has Iron Ranger on sale for $167.90, with most sizes still available. Very tempting.... but I have a number of similar looking boots already

^ If they had them in Black, I would have pulled the trigger.

My 9111 are super comfortable! I had a pair of the Iron Ranger in a mens 7 and had to send them back because they were just way too big. Wish they made it in a smaller size since they run big to begin with.

I briefly had these in "oro-iginal" color but sent them back because I didn't like the color. Anyway, they fit fine just like my other RW boots; I follow the usual recommendation of sizing down half.

They sure do. My dad works in the PetroChemical industry and gets 3 pairs of these boots every year from work. He basically has more than he could use and I usually end up with some of them. 

Recently, I cleaned up a couple old pairs that I found in the garage and they look amazing!

My RW 213's. I hit them (extremely sparingly) with one coat when I first got them of a mink oil cream by Tana, and haven't touched them since. The mink oil must have done something because there is only minor mottling that you see on other pull-up leathers - the color is even. They still look pretty much brand new, except that they're completely broken in. I've worn these pretty much solidly for 2 months now, and I walk a LOT. There's barely any wrinkles in the uppers, and they've become (much to my surprise) my most comfortable pair of boots/shoes.

I love these. Kudos to RW for making indestructable boots.

These run TTS. Believe me, I bought a pair a half size down and was in agony. When I re-bought the pair (I know, right?) at my regular size they still fit a little snug, though they should break in to a good fit.

the chukkas have a strange last. they have a very snug toebox. Despite my narrow feet, I had to take half a number bigger than my 875
post #1317 of 2615

^ Agreed.  I had the same issue with my Chukkas.  I down sized 0.5, therefore I them with thin socks.

do they stretch out and shape to your foot like clarks dbs?

Not really. I mean, all shoes will do that eventually. Desert boots are unstructured & unlined and so break in really quickly. These are definitely 'structured' - the toe box is reinforced, you couldn't squash it down with your thumb.

Cleaned up my Red Wing for J Crew 2904 boots:

1. Leather cream

2. Kiwi cordovan wax on the toe

 

I think you're supposed to use mink oil on the "Copper Rough & Tough", but whatever.

 

And worn:
