The work pair are worn everyday for the last year and see all kinds of abuse. The ones in the middle of the Iron Rangers and Blacksmiths are a Munson boot that was a collaboration with Jcrew and my new boots are 4579. It's a beckman boot as well collaboration with Jcrew as well. Here's a few pictures.

Apologize in advance for all the pictures.

These are the chestnut Beckmans and a comparison picture of my work ones and other ones.




 

Man, I really want some chestnut beckman oxfords.

Hey guys, just bought a pair of RW 1907's. Since Im not used to buying higher end boots, initially my right boot was tighter and felt more snug than my left boot. I could feel my pinky toe bone poking out on the sides on the right boot, while the left boot felt perfect (almost a bit loose). This is common because my right foot is usually more flat footed and if I went another half size down, my right foot would have no way in getting into the boot. After about a week of break in, I can feel the right boot adjusting to the width, but I am starting to feel that they may be too big. Returning is out of the question as I used a online source but went into red wing to try a size. Do you guys recommend any insoles I could use to get the fit better? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Great choice with the 1907's -- the leather on these is absolutely beautiful. Did you size at the average Brannock size of your two feet? Most people's feet are in fact different sizes (I'm a 12.5 on one foot and 11.5 on the other!) and some people elect to get custom boots (like White's) in two different sizes but that can get pricey...

I recommend the following orthotic to fill the boots up a bit:

I know, Ive wanted these boots for a while now and its a little unsettling to see my almost 300 dollar investment not turn out the way i want it to be. unfortunately i did not use the brannock device but I did use the electronic machine at the red wing store. I had the sizes of 10 and 9.5, Im guessing the 10 was my right foot. I ended up sizing down to a 9 which i think is the average. Thinking about it again, I think I maybe should of tried the 8.5 size but exchanging or returning my current boots would be a huge hassle. I appreciate the recommendation and will look into these insoles.
