A friend of mine looking for a rare pair of 8180 green boots in size 8.5D-9D. Anybody knows where can he get them?

Are there any lighter alternatives to red wing boots? I like the classic style with the white sole but find that they're too heavy for my daily use.

Hi,

 

I have an Iron Ranger 8111, just wondering what do you guys do to preserve the leather and keeping them clean?

I have Obenauf's LP and RW Natural Boot Oil. Just in a bit of a dilemma on which should I use.

What sort of conditions will you be wearing the boots in?

I wonder if anyone can help. I have a pair of Red wing oxblood mesa leather 213 boots, which are obviously chromexcel and getting worked in. I would like to buy either a pair of Beckman's in colour 8, or else a pair of wolverine 1000 miles (I like the rust colour, but also the colour 8!). I don't have a sense of how close they are in colour...would it be redundant?
Any suggestions would be great!

Hello, I am soon to be purchasing some 1907s, my feet measure 27cm or 10 9/16''. I was wondering if somebody could tell me how accurate the sizing chart is on the red wings website, the site chart states that a size 9 would fit a 27cm foot (what if i wore thick socks). If somebody has similar sized feet (width is not an issue) and you have purchased 1907s, could you tell me about your boots size and fit please, that would be fantastic. I live 8 hours from the nearest red wing store so going there to try some on is a no go. I have Hi top 106 vans which are 10us and 9.5us converse hi cuts (converse are tight width wise).

Hey guys I'm new to RW. Got myself a Moc toe oxford with a crepe sole. I love its sturdy nature but I find the crepe sole wearing out faster than I thought it would.

Is this normal?

Iron Rangers run about a half size large so I'd go with 7.5

Thanks! Can it be resoled? If yes what is the cost?

I have no idea what the cost is, and I'm sure there are many boot repair places that will resole them, but I do know that Red Wing will resole most Red Wing boots. You'd have to contact your local store or go through the RW web site to find the cost.

Yes they can be resoled. I had a pair of 926 work boots resoled by red wings themselves a few months ago. Dropped it off at my local store, took about 10 days or so to get them back I think. 100 bucks, new outer sole, new insoles, new laces, and conditioned. Not a bad deal. A cobbler might do it cheaper, but, well, depends on how good they are and all that....

I just ordered my pair of IR's in amber harness. I've heard the break in period is brutal. How long did it last for you guys?

My "break-in" period wasn't that bad at all. I decided to break-in my brand new IR during a 2-week vacation in Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA. The IR's were the only shoes I brought along with some running shoes. I feared that the IR's might wreck my feet and I would resort to wearing my tennies the whole trip; but that wasn't the case. We did a lot of urban hiking in those two weeks. My feet were a little sore the first few days but nothing serious. 

 

I did go 1/2 size down and wider and the fit out the box was snug but not overly constricting. I believe if you size properly you don't have anything to worry about.
