What sort of conditions will you be wearing the boots in?
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).
yes that is normal.they're damn comfy but wedge/crepe sole wears out fast.
Iron Rangers run about a half size large so I'd go with 7.5
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....
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.
