I think its half-size with the GT. I normally take 9D but 8.5D would fit me from Red Wing.

Decided to risk it and ordered a 9.5 from Zappos..have slightly wider feet but maybe these will fit (didn't size down).

otherwise not sure what other shoe there is for me..looking for a black boot w some grip in the sole in the $300 range..next best would be white's but want these a bit sooner :/

Amazon had them for $243 a little while ago, you could always size up and get an nice insole for still under $300. Amazon will probably drop the price again in a few weeks.

2 questions:

1) does the GT come in widths? I kinda want to try a 2E
2) How do people polish their GTs in cigar? I was thinking of order neutral polish at least but would like some colored polish that matches.

Word of advice:

If you measure your foot and you are an E/EE, going true to size still will not work with these boots.
Sending back my pair of 9.5

tried many different insoles but still prefer the original red wing insole for my GT.

pardon the DBs and the shoe trees there.

What is the opinion on this vs the LLB Katahdin for snow, ice & sludge weather? I'm concerned about how the leather will hold up.
post #1375 of 1851
the katahdins are ok, the sole does well but you need to waterproof/treat the leather if you're going to be trudging through deep snow or lots of rain. for serious winter walking, i wouldn't recommend them.

i think the GTs hold up well in snow and rain... ive never had any issues

Loving my 9013.

And recently just bought the 875.

can't wait to break them in!
post #1378 of 1851
how did you size the 9013 compared to the 875?
post #1379 of 1851
Its a tricky qn for my case.

My feet are measured 9.5. But during the time i bought my 9013, the store didnt have half-sizes so i went with the size 10. I can still put in a redwing insole for that and still as comfy like it was without insole.

For the 875, i got 9.5 which what the shop assistant recommended.

Hope this helps. smile.gif

Late reply, but to no 2, there's no need to polish. I've applied a coat or 2 of obenauf lp after initial break in and I'm planning to top it up again. It will darken the leather. But it should make it mostly waterproof. I had mine in deep snow and there were no issues besides cold feet. But then I just needed warmer socks.

Also does anyone know of some good leather or some kind of solid laces for GTs? I'm looking for something that will not undo itself every couple of hours. Cheers!
