Thank all for your answers!
About sizing I would like to say that the down sizing tip do not work for me..I wear uk 10 in trickers stows and uk 10,5 in red wings 877..
One last thing, do anyone know what the soles in pictures below are? Vibram morflex maybe?
I just got the 1097 classic moc boot. Problem is it is very tight in the toe box, where I can feel my pinky toe getting squished. The length however is fine. Should I stick with them and hope for them to break in over time? (I've heard this model takes a while to break in.)
Or is this just wishful and I should just return them?
I went for the 7.5 as I own a pair of red wing chukkas in 8 and they are a bit long but width is fine.
Ah cool. Just to clarify, the model is 1907. Made a typo before.
How are you finding them? They are chunkier than I expected. The leather is very different - not sure what kind of conditioner I could use on it.
Yea I figured you meant the 1907's.
Its funny I used to always hate the moc boots because I thought they looked to chunky but over the past year the more I saw them and after trying them on I became a fan. I mean it takes some getting used to as I am used to my Beckmans but I am enjoying them just as much if not more. As fare as caring for them I havent bought any product but this should help you choose the right stuff. http://www.redwingheritage.com/care
You know, it's been 3 days and they've actually gotten more comfortable. I can imagine them getting nicer in a couple months.
I like to have a snug fit and am not a fan of heel slip, so this is probably the size for me.
The heal only usually slips for the first week or so as they're breaking in - a bit of heel slip, intitially, is normal.
