Ah. Thanks. I'm currently looking for a pair, but I wear a 9.
I recently found two pairs of Red Wing Heritage 1907 one pair of 8138 and one 1907 at my local Platos closet. Both pair are in excellent condition, but not my size; 8.5D and 10D. If anyone has an unwanted pair, size 9D or 9.5D, I would be interested in a trade.

I really like the charcoal rough and tough IRs and Engineers. I actually tried on Engineers before buying my IRs and liked the way they fit, just liked the IRs and Brogue Rangers look a little more.
And I agree with linafelt, I'm not big into chukkas either. I say get either the charcoal Engineers or IRs.
Just got my first pair of Red Wing Moc Toe 8130 in 9.5D. They do fit snug on the sides but length is good. Very comfortable boots and nothing like many posted about breaking them in. They feel great with hiking merino wool socks.
I have 2 other pair of Wolverine 1K's and the biggest difference is how much softer the 1K's are vs. these Moc Toe boots. Other than that I sized a whole size down on all of them vs. my sneakers.
Its funny you mention that because the first thing I did when these RED Wing Moc toes came in was weight them vs. my Wolverine 1K's....lol
Yup, the Red Wing Moc toe is heavier and very noticeable too.
I just bought a pair from nordstrom rack today. Bitter chocolate iron rangers, which were exclusive to jcrew if I remember right, for like $140. Im worried they''ll be too similar in color to a pair i already have, if so I'll send them back..I love red wings but I have to be practical damnit lol
Wolverines and Chippewas both are much lighter. It's weird.
