Red Wing Boots - Your Opinion - Page 169

post #2521 of 2690

discovered a flaw in the way the shaft is stitched to the vamp of the left boot in the pair of Beckman's I just bought. The local red wing store is doing a return and replacement for me, even though I bought them in another state while on vacation. I think that's nice of them.

How does the round toe compare in size to the chukka and moc? I'm a 10 in the chukka and moc.

Interesting. New Beckman wingtip style# 9051. Looks like it may be Europe only though frown.gif

Not gonna lie, like the Brogue Ranger a lot more for a wingtip boot. This is one of the few Red Wings I'm not feeling...

Hey guys,

 

I got the chance of comparing the Wolverine 1000 miles and the Red Wing Beckmans. In comparison, I found the Wolverine 1000 miles more comfortable and it has less of the work boot look which in fits well into my business casual outfits. I really like the waxed laces that came with it, but they aren't too durable. The Red Wings were less comfortable due to the fact that they are rather heavy and I never got the chance to break them in properly. The boots are the same size, but the Beckmans were larger in the toe box. The sole on the Beckman's has the great grip yet still maintains the classic look, its a great option for traveling in snow or rain.

 

 

If anyone is interested I'm selling a pair of Beckman's in size 8.5 - BLACK CHERRY

Question for anyone who has word the Red Wing Work Chukka in Copper (Rough and Tough):

 

What are your thoughts on using Obenauf's LP on this leather?  Would there be any issues with using Obenauf's vs. mink oil... or something similar?

 

Any experience?

 

Thank you.

Very reminiscent of the Wolverine 1000 Mile Addison Boot, except with a grippier sole!

Do you know what your brannock measurement is?

 

If so subtract half a size.

 

Since the chukka run tts I would go with the 9.

 

Hope this helps.

@bl@ster

That brogue is only European as far as I know.

Does anyone know if RW would build a brogue ranger with a beckman sole if we went through a local RW store? I would buy that.

Replaced the laces on my 9017 and gave them a buff in preparation for cooler weather.

Did anyone buy the Pecos boots from Union Made? I was wondering if I should size down and by how much. Thanks
