I'm actually trying to find a pair of the updated 875s (http://www.redwingshoes.com/877-and-875) with Oro Legacy leather and silver hardware. Red Wing customer service wasn't helpful at all in finding an online retailer that's selling the new versions. Does anybody know of any online stores that are definitely shipping the new 875s?

Yea I found a few places, there is amazon which will ship certain shoes to Australia and not others but it seemed portland trading co would send all their shoes to Australia where as amazon was hit or miss. I wanted a pair of 9013 and ended up getting them off rakuten best to use an on-shipper. My order is currently up in the air they send me an email saying they were unavailable in my size then the next day sent me a confirmation of shipping. Google translate japanese to english is painful and useless. Using an japanese on shipper would probably handle any of those issues. Currently I'm just playing a wait and see...

 

Stuarts London seem to ship to Australia and had a good selection. Probably best to order from Red Wing Berlin or Red Wing Amsterdam and getting a proxy / on-shipper to send to Australia

Hi all,

I have a sizing question relative to Brannock measurement. I measure right in between 10,5 and 11. My Clarks Jicks, I wear a 10,5. I'm looking at the Chukka in oro, what's a best guess as to my size? 10,5? 10?

Thanks very much in advance. I'll post pics once I have them, great boot!

I got a question about the Red wing boot sizing. I normally wear a size 8-8.5 in sneakers (Nike and Jordans) i was wondering what size should i go with for the Moc Toe Redwing boots 6in? i was thinking i'd be good in a size 8 since most of my sneakers are 8.5 and i have like 1 or 2 pars of a sz 8

Sizing based off of sneakers is very unreliable. Best thing to do is go to a shoe store or Nordstrom and get measured on a Brannock Device. Then size down .5 from your measured true size.

But yes, sz8 is a good guess.

bl@ster is right. The sizing of sneakers varies too much (it's everything between 9.5-11 for me), half a size should be appropriate for them to not be too narrow.

Just to have it in this thread if somebody is wondering: the insoles are not exchangeable. From an email exchange with red wing staff "The insole is sewn on the welt: so the insole can’t be removed since it’s key for the whole construction on the shoe."
Still very comfy. If you don't need custom insoles because of medical reasons, there's no need to think about it. If you do, Thorogood Moc Toes may be a better fit.

yeap I guess a US8 is your best guess.

I wear a US9.5 in vans,and i can wear a US8.5 D or US8 E for moc toes.

But from my experience with Iron Ranger,i would prefer a US9D for a bit breathing room in them and i need sometimes to have an extra insole cause of my runners' heel.right now my US8.5 iron range is very snug so there's no room for an extra insole. but for my US8.5D Mocs,they're fine and even now feels roomier.

Hey guys, Just bought myself a pair of 3141 heritage chukkas, and don't really have a clue on what exactly I should do to care for them. Do you have any tips/suggestions, perhaps there's a post you guys could point me to that would be helpful? Thank you.
