Try this knot:

I use it with all of my boots and it's never come undone by accident. I need a secure knot when I ride my motorcycle with laced boots.

Thanks for the tip, I will give it a shot. I still need some new shoe laces, since the tips on mind have fallen off. And I like to have them for quickly putting the boots on. Any idea if they make boot shoe laces with metal tips?

Does anyone own the IR in amber and GT in cigar have some live pics for comparison?

 

The colors look similar from web pics.Seems like the IR amber has a reddish brown while the GT is more to brown/chestnut?

I have the IR in amber harness and the GT in cigar featherstone. The GT is indeed more chestnut and lighter in tone, it's closer to a natural leather color/tone. The IR amber harness is dark reddish brown. I'll try to get a side by side photo in a day or two. Btw, I do think many of the photos from reputable websites do represent the colors fairly accurate.

In that case,I'll probably compare using those from websites then..thanks.Btw,which would you guys recommend between the IR amber harness and the GT in cigar if you can purchase one only?

Beckman GT in Cigar, simply because I like the plain toe on the GT more than the captoe on the IR.

I tend to dress down so the IR was my first purchase. Even with the lug sole the GT's finish gives it a more dressy look. But having own both, I prefer the IR's flat sole, slender profile, and posts instead of eyelets for the last three holes. On the other hand, the cigar finish on the GT is really nice, wish the IR had that. IMO, if you are planning to pair the shoes with raw denim, go for the GT.

I don't understand all these guys saying they wear the same size in clarks desert boots.

I wear an 8.5 in desert boots. Got an 8.5 pair of GTs. They are huge on me. There's almost an inch between the tips of my toes and the front of the toe box. And I keep reading they are narrower? Uh no.

I'm kind of ticked. I spend 3 hours going through this thread and it backfires.

Just got the 9011 in Black Cherry and I am disappointed to find they are Made in USA with imported materials. When did Red Wing start doing this? I mean I didn't pay retail but i'm kinda bummed about this.
