i hate to be a downer for you,but i bought my gt's from my local red wing store, i was thinking the same thing as you are,1/2 size smaller, the gentleman at the store gave some good advice, they will stretch a little wider, but no way will they get longer.
I got an 11.5 9016 and I've still got some space in the heel. I'm wearing a wool sock from Brooks Brothers - not dress weight, but just a little thicker. I feel like I could fit a 3/4 insole.
Do people usually go 1 full size down? Or do I go with an insole?
spent 8 weeks breaking in my red wing gt's, put them on yesterday and felt something that thought was just a little fold in my sock, took my boot off only to find a staple poking up in the sole. i know things happen, but man my boots were feelig good. no problem on the return, but now i am back to square 1 on the break in, after they send my new gt's.
It's a good thing you asked. It's recently been reported that HDLP is no longer safe to use with leather from SB Foot's tannery, owned and operated by RW and the exclusive leather supplier for RW boots. The report cited several examples in which formerly perfect Beckman/GT boots appearance and shape were irreparably damaged after just a single application of Obenauf HDLP. See images below.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just Kidding, Obenauf HDLP or Montana Pitch Blend will work fine. I prefer HDLP.
Anyone else notice some discomfort where the stitching for the lacing meets toe area on the outside (basically the middle of your foot)? I'm only noticing it on my left foot and I'm starting to think one of my feet is wide and the other is normal...
Probably about 20 hours wear 2/3 sitting (at work).
