Red Wing Boots - Your Opinion - Page 228

post #3406 of 3657
The nitrile cork IR sole is a comfortable sole, in my opinion, more comfortable than the leather soles i have on 7 other shoes I own... But the Red Wing wedge sole is more comfortable than the IR nitrile cork sole IMHO.

But we both wear not tight, but snug jeans so it's fine. It's balanced. So do they feel narrow in an uncomfortable way? If so, then def don't buy them. But if it's just the appearance, I say give em a try. I almost returned my engineers bc I couldn't get over how narrow and almost petite I thought they made my feet look lol. But, I found a perfect pair of jeans and stuck with them and got used to the look and now they are the most complimented pair I have! I went through the same deal with my ice cutters and the look of the heavy lug outsole. I thought they looked comical, but right pair of jeans does wonders. Also, linufelt, if you're looking for a wider need have you looked at red wings Munson boot? They're elusive but I own a pair and they are perfectly wide! They might just be the ticket for you..

 

Thanks, I do like the Munson shape, but at this point I am boot rich and cash poor, so no new ones until I wear out a pair...

I polished my Brogue Rangers yesterday and wearing today.  Really like these for a dressier boot/shoe option.

Any advice on how the Classic Chukka fit? True to size? Thanks!

post #3410 of 3657

I have 2 pair of doc toes - 1 plain toe boot (6")  - and  2 Chukka's

I consider my size to be 91/2 (although I take a 10 in Nike sneakers)

I size down for RW Moc toes and plain toe boots (9) while I stay true to size with the Chukka (91/2)

 

I remember the first time I tried a Chukka and sized 1/2 down as I do with my other Red Wings.  I could not get my foot into the boot as the opening was too tight.

 

I hope this helps

Does anyone know what brand/style of boots these are?? I'm absolutely in love with them and I can't find them for the life of me. Any help would be great😊

Hard to tell. They resemble the RW Weekender but have too many eyelets or the RW classic round with a thin/worn sole.

I would guess it is neither, it is not a RW boot.

This helps quite a bit, thank you!

Yeah I looked at the RWs previously and although they do look similar they're not the same. The soles on this boot are thinner than RWs:/. Would I like to get the exact pair? Yes, but I will most likely have to compromise and get something that closely resembles these.

Decided to also get some 877s. This will complete my RW collection for the foreseeable future!

Some pics of the 877s.

This might be too late, but I thought I would second that the Chukkas and other Red Wings on 210 last are TTS. It wouldn't be crazy to even go a half size over TTS...of course, this depends on how accurately your size has been measured on a Brannock device, how wide your feet are, and what kind of socks you'll be wearing with them. I would say go with whatever size works best for you in standard athletic shoes, assuming you'll wear the Red Wings with similar socks.

Of course, if you buy them from a Red Wing Store or Nordstrom, you can bring them back if you don't find them comfortable.

Captain i

I will be interested to hear what you think of your 877s. I understand they don't have heel counters. Do they feel supportive and stable to you? Do your ankles move around?

I just ordered some 10877s from my local Red Wing Store, as they are available in a B width, among many other widths.
post #3420 of 3657
So far I have worn them twice for many hours and they started to blister the back of my heel, my IRs, 8181s, Brogue Rangers, and postman oxfords have all done this until broken in. I wear 9.5D in all of the RWs I mentioned.

Next time I wear them I will try to determine if my heel is moving around more or less than my other RWs and let ya know. So far theyou do feel pretty stable, I can definitely tell the boot is taller and supports above my ankle more.
