Question for everyone, new to the forum and trying to decide what boots I want to get. They'll mainly be worn with jeans and tees and flannels as they'd be worn to class and out at night. Do you guys think red wings and specifically the 2955 is too dressy to wear with jeans and a Patagonia winter coat?

Too dressy? I don't see any way that could be true. They're work boots!

That's what I figured, I suppose a big part of wearing them with whatever you want is just confidence

Sorry - I spend most of my time in AE-land (lol!).  I measure about a 7.5C/D.  With the Beckman, I went with a 7D, and with down a half size in length, PLUS the insole, PLUS wool socks, they fit very well.  When I wear them with those gold-toe socks like you mentioned, I have more room than I'd prefer.  The 875 had even more room for me plus I wasn't so hot about the fit overall.  As much as I liked the engineer's boot the best, the whole shaft was WAY too wide/roomy for me, and the buckle doesn't provide any adjustability - it's only for looks.

 

While I'd definitely take the Dalton, Knightsbridge or Gobi over the Beckmans for comfort, you absolutely can't beat them for harsh weather.  I wore the Beckmans through rain, snow, ice, you name it, then wiped them off and they look like they just came out of the box brand new.

Anyone have any photos of a good broken in 2955? All I can find is pictures of the boot new

Hi guys i'm about to buy a pair off eBay but i wanted to get a opinion on the boots first. 

http://imgur.com/Cad6dII these are the boots. Does the creasing on the side look ok? or is it a case of loose grain? Thanks!

They look OK to me.  You rarely see loose grain in Red Wing, at least not the really bad kind you see from CXL leather sometimes.
