Even with the 30% discount on the currency exchange rate your still looking at shipping charges to send a parcel to the US plus over 200 means customs/importing fees I'm not sure where the deal is? Wouldn't it be better to just order form a .ca site that has US shipping that might also make the declared amount less than 200 to avoid any charges coming across the border?

There aren't any duty fees as it's a made in USA product. NAFTA. You save almost 30% on the exchange and 30% off retail.

Received my 8119 today (with vibram soles).

 

Ordered from RevolveClothing with the 15% code (no CA tax and free priority shipping). Happy with the price/service and LOVE the boots.

 

Breaking them in inside the house right now (yes..the pyjamas are a easy sign!). Was expecting the worst for early break-in, however, the leather is so subtle and is already molding around my angle/foot.

 

The vibram sole was the main reason why I went with the 8119 ..I've had other boots resoled locally in the past but getting it stock from factory is always the best option.

 

I've been wearing my Loakes Buffords (dainite sole) all summer/fall so this should go very well in fall/winter rotation.

Any recommendations on certain types of Shoe Trees for the Iron Ranger? I just picked up a pair of the Charcoal Rough & Toughs and because I have narrow feet I had to size down an additional .5 to get the correct amount of snugness in the middle part of my foot and in the arch, the 10.5 had too much room width wise causing the leather to almost fold on the sides of the boot. I had the guys at RW put the stretcher to the toe area to give me some added width since my pinky toe was pretty tight, but I would like to get some nice Shoe Trees that I can leave in overnight to help the Boot maintain its shape and hopefully speed up the break in process as well as suck out any moisture since my feet sweat pretty easily. Not sure if they made any that were specifically shaped for round toe or cap toed 6 inch boots.

Hi Guys,

 

Do you know if these boots are the same size with Allen & Edmonds shoes? Thanks!

I've found, after many years of use, that the cedar Woodlore trees you get at Nordstrom Rack for $15 work as well as any trees on the market.

 

They're what I use on my Red Wing brogans I've been wearing since 1990.  As far as a round toe goes, it doesn't really matter all that much what the tree toe looks like, because if you're getting a lot of daily creasing on the toe, you're doing something very wrong that shoe trees are unlikely to help.  The key areas are the ball and heel, which the Woodlores work great with.

 

Speaking of Nordstrom Rack, look what I saw down there today:

I have the 9016 cigar Beckman in 9D. Do you recommend the same size for the 9010 Beckman Moc? How big of a difference is the 8 last compared to the 23 last?

I'm also having trouble deciding between the 9010 moc toe and the 9011 plain toe. I would always prefer the sleek plain toe over the moc toe, but I am not sure it's worth getting another pair in a different color, whereas the 9011 is clunkier and gives a different enough look.

I've found the 8 last to be a little longer than the 23 last, but the 23 last to be a little fuller, if that makes sense. In all honesty, I think a 7.5EE in the 8 last might fit me better.

 

But I also have high arches and weird feet, so it's tough to go by my sizing. I'd just try them on and see what feels the best.

 

And I love the 9010, it's one of my favorite boots and I've gotten tons of compliments on them. The 9016/round toe is pretty classic styling though, and maybe a little more versatile. I'll wear the 9016 when teaching, but I doubt I'd wear the 9010 to do the same.

Completely agree. I have both RW moc toes and IRs in the same size and, even if I have a very slim feet, I feel I could have gone down an additional half size in IRs.

Guys, I know, it's probably asked like million times, but I need some help with sizing (since there are no RW stores in 3000km radius).

 

In classics I mostly wear UK made shoes: Crocket & Jones, loake, Sanders in 7.5G or 8F (7.5G is preferable, but no chance to get them always).

From US I have Allen Edmonds Walton (9D) and Patriot (9D). Patriots with thin socks fit like a glove - somewhat wide, round toebox and relatively narrow heel.

Got also Sperry and Sebago boat shoes, both in 9D. Superga 2750 in EU42. All of them very comfy.

 

How long and how wide are IRs compared to what I got? 

Doubt between 8.5 and 9D. I suspect, the best choice would be 8.5EE, but it's quite rare to find.

I've read Iron Rangers are kind of narrow, but it's hard to believe looking at photos (probably impressions like that came from people who only have experience with casual, athletic, tennis shoes etc.).

I just bought Iron Rangers in US9D and I could have squeezed in US8.5D too, but my right foot pinky toe was hurting a lot. I wear Loake's and Church's in UK8.5, so US9D is definately too big for you. I found moc toes to be 0.5 size smaller. I think it is really hard to find a right size without trying.

 

Edit: And theyre definately way more narrow than my Loake Kempton chukkas in UK8.5D but are getting better with each wear.

taduuu, thanks for the reply.

I also have Kempton (in UK 7.5F), they are too pointed, narrow in toebox and hurt little finger, but sort of roomy everywhere else. I would say, 8UK should be fine, probably a tad too long.

BTW, in my experience US size = UK+1, so it's ok that your IRs 9D more narrow than Kemptons 9.5D.

 

Things ain't get clearer :) Maybe I should go with Chippewa heritage line instead.

I wear a perfect 9D in every Allen Edmonds shoe I own: Dalton, Shelton, Patriot, Promontory Point, and Mora 2.0.  Just tried on an Iron Ranger in 8D (!) and that was the ticket.  8.5 way too long for me.  YMMV, but yeah, they run big.  The width seemed fine.
