Don't use sno seal. Use Obenauf's LP. Sealing the pores of the boot is going to rot it from the inside and drastically reduce its life.

sno seal is made for the winter, pretty sure if you use it carefully you'll be fine, a thin layer I already have oil, but I need winter protection

I've had the Red Wing 877s for about a year. They definitely fit the bill for a good pair of Winter boots. However I have experienced some problems with my pair. As much I enjoy wearing my boots during the cold winter months, sometimes I refrain from using them due to difficulties I have getting them on and off my feet. Most of the times I have to take off most of the laces in order to step into the boots. I tried using a shoe horn without any success. The boots are not too small for my feet. I could probably size down half a size and still fit my feet comfortably. Is this a common problem among those who own tall boots from Red Wing? Anyone got any suggestion for how to make it easier for me to get step into boots without de-lacing them? Thanks!

I have the exact same view. Amazing winter boots. Oh and I have to do the same thing, in terms of having to de-lace them completely to take them off.

Anybody know how 877s would compare to Wolverine 1000 Miles size-wise?

I have a pair of GT's and I can usually get them off fairly easily, but I have to undo the laces to get them on.

Of course Red Wing advises you to use their products, but what products are you using for care taking?

Also if possible, a link to a website that sell care products at reasonable prices.

Thanks.

I just recently bought myself a pair of IR and they are starting to wear in. I'm liking them alot so far but i fear that i should have gotten 9.5E instead of 10D, although they aren't available were i live (sweden). A bit too much toe-room but good fit otherwise. I'm already thinking om maybe a pair of GT's in a different colouration, nice boots are addictive. (much to the dismay of my wallet)

RW 1907 - Copper I put on Obenauf's Leather Oil when I first got them in January. How often should I apply something on them?

I want to get some but I don't know what size to order.

I tried on a 9013 Beckman/GT and an Iron Ranger and was a 9.5 in both (little narrow on the Beckman, but nothing that wouldn't stretch out. I'd say i'm about a 10.5B measured.

Cheers.

I went to the Red Wing store last week and the dude made me try those exact ones on because it was the closest fit he had to the 875. I actually ordered in the same size I measured on their machine which was a 10B. I'm beginning to think their machine is right because I've tried to force my foot into a 9.5D 875 and a 877 9D. Expensive mistakes. My shoes should be here at the end of this week or start of next. I'm hoping I got this size thing worked out. I would say order a 10.5B. Do you have a Red Wing store close by?

That tiny foot sounds really cute.
