Nice! Thanks!

Question, I recently got a Saphir shoe cream, nobody until now was bringing it to Mexico. Would it be convinient to use it on my Red Wing's?

Red Wing says on their site that shoe cream should be used only on their smooth finished leathers, like the Beckman for example so I think it's safe to use it your Beckmans. The Foreman Chukkas on the other hand is part of their Oil-Tanned leather collection and I would recommend just using leather cleaner and boot oil. They also say to use leather spray protector but I've never used it and my boots have been fine without it. My 3141 Chukkas are the same leather as the Foreman Chukkas you plan on getting and leather cleaner and boot oil is all I use on them. The boot oil does darken then at first but then they get back to their original color with wear. Just remember to use a small amount and not to use it very often or it might darken your boots permanently. I'm still afraid to use mink oil because I hear a lot of negative comments about it lol

Red Wing Classic Chukka, 3141, Briar Oil Slick. 5 months of wear, 5-6 days a week. The leather was well oiled when I received them, so I have yet to do anything to the leather. All I've done is wipe them down or run a brush over them. One of my all time favorite footwear purchases. I love this leather. I think it wears well. I like the way the laces wear on the tongue. I may oil them this winter.

Yup, I was thinking on using it on the Beckman's, cause I wanted to buy the Red Wing cream but they don't ship to Mexico or accept international credit cards, so I told my sister if she could buy it for me now that she's going to NY. That was before getting the Saphir cream (which I recently found that a store carries them, they have only 3 months selling the product).

Hey all,

I just recently purchased a pair of Red Wing Moc Toe 875's online. I wear a size 9 in Blacksmith's (1 full size down from normal shoe size) so I ordered a size 9 in the 875's as well. I've read a bit that for 875's it might have been better to go just a half size down.

 

Does anyone know if the Blacksmith's and 875's are similar/different fitting?

Beautiful chukkas! I have the same pair and my girlfriend can't stand the white sole lol. I always tell her they're my favorite chukkas and probably my most comfortable

Red Wing Iron Rangers

My first pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers 8111 through some work, outdoor adventures, lakes, Pacific Ocean, snow, etc

 

Red Wings are a great starter boot I think. Once you get into them, you start to discover other options with more interesting detail (Viberg, Alden, RRL), but necessary for any real boot collection.

Hey guys, do you recommend using Salhir cream on the Beckman's? Or should I buy the Red Wing cream? I saw Alden cream too but don't know the difference. What do you think?

Red Wing has launched a new model. The Merchant is now available in Europe. This particular model comes without the toe protector, so a less bulbous toe that will eventually collapse. To my knowledge it has been released in the three colors below.

Anybody know what style number these Red Wings are? All I could find was that it's amber harness leather and made in USA.

Nevermind. I just found out that it's the Wabasha Boot.

These look great. But why oh why does North America get screwed again?

I'm not interested in the boots but they are nice. I also agree with you. I know it will be released in USA soon, but you would think they would be releasing boots here first since they're "Made in USA"

Am I the only one who thinks the toes look collapsed already?
