Now I have to choose on how to weather proof them.
 

Yes, the first time I bought Red Wing, I got a pair of 10.5. They were too big for me and the retailer did not accept return. I emailed Red Wing and they let me do a size exchange with them directly icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif They are awesome. If you can't find your size online, email them to see if they can sell you a pair directly.

As to weather proofing them, Obenaufs heavy duty LP is the way to go. I use it on all my boots.

I have the beckman boot in chestnut (9013), and the suede chuka (3143), last 210. The beckman is size 9, the Chukka is 9.5, both fit me well. However I'm wondering what size I should get in the Beckman oxford (9042,9043) and the 9148 moccasin/boatshoe. The oxfords are on last 224 and the Beckman boots are on last 8, whereas the moccasin/boatshoes are on last 516-2 (whatever that means).

I have 2 pairs of the moc toe's in 8, bought the beckmans in a 8 recently, even with insoles, I had to return them due to heel slipping. Never did I think I'd need a 7.5 or maybe even a 7 in anything.

So, I basically have no good clothing for wear at work when it rains or snows.

My office is all business casual ( button down collared shirts + slacks, but not suit or jacket necessary ).

What boot would fit the following?
- Is dressy enough to wear with grey/brown/navy dress pants (can't be too clunky - prefer something somewhat sleek)
- have a rubber sole (dainite or commando)
- are fairly water proof (no suede)

Basically, something that's waterproof and rugged enough to handle snow, but not super clunky. I'm in DC so it usually doesn't snow that hard.

All Red Wings are bulbous/bulky/clunky. The Beckman's can be polished up nicely and have a commando sole. But again, clunky for sure.

 

Wolverine 1K's would be a good choice. The leather sole will be fine. They have a less clunky look for a boot.

 

Or you could look at AE Eagle Country or Long Branch.

 

Or Alden options.

I found these old Red Wings Boots (US made) on line (E-Bay). They looked like very well made boots (they are) and they had almost no wear on the heels/soles. They were about $90 including shipping.

 

 

 

After some TLC:

So has anyone resoled a crepe with a leather or lug-sole? I really hate the way the crepe sole looks on mine.

I haven't done it, but go for it - it is not a big deal - I hate the way crepe looks too...

how is the sizing on the redwing beckman oxford? (9042,9043)
post #1425 of 2569

Hello all, I have a couple of questions regarding my Redwings, hopefully someone can help.

 

What's the best methed of applying the pine/mink liquid oil? Using a cloth or just work in with hands? How much should be used?

 

I gave my 3 year old 875 a coat of oil after a good clean using the leather cleaner but they appear just as dry if not more so than beforehand.
