    try searching with google. probably the best way is using the net. past experience is amazon has the best prices (most of the time).

    Hey folks

    Looking for some advice/guidance on my first pair of redwings. I have read from about page 100 ( time new oro legacy leather was released) on and searched the internet to try to find a direct comparison before I hit you guys up with these questions. Looking to buy either 1907's in copper or the 875. Nordstrom had the 1907's and tried them on and the local red wing store didn't have my size in stock and ordered them for me to try on. I assume the 1907 rough and tough leather will be that and a little harder to break in, I'll condition the heck out of them to try to soften the leather if I buy them. I could only handle the 875's but the leather seemed more pliable, kind of like the Chromexcel on the wolverine 1k which was easy to break in. Is that a fair comparison?

    So the main question for anyone who has had both the 1907 and the new 875 leather Oro legacy leather, how different is the break-in on these? Are they the same comfort wise after break in? If anyone has both I would love to see a side by side shot as I haven't found one on the web - which is hard to believe actually.

    Thanks for the help and Happy New Year all

    Maybe a dumb question but hey, I could use the help:

    I just purchased a pair of 875's. What type of coat pairs best with this style of boot in general ...... would a navy peacoat be fine or too dressy?

    A navy peacoat sounds good, but it depends on what else you're wearing.

    assume Jeans or Chinos most of the time, maybe some wool pants. Not dress pants.

    you could try factory seconds (mentioned a few pages back) or buy second-hand otherwise, it's difficult to find them for below (trust me, i tried before just settling for retail)

    A navy peacoat should be fine, especially with jeans, chinos, or wool pants. A nice workshirt always helps.

    I believe these are the Copper Yuma 2963's I was asking about in the above post, for $174 at Gimmeshoes. Final sale though so no returns - it's a bit of a risk since they are mis-marked as "STOCK# 3724 Camel, oiled nubuck work boot"

    Edit: Confirmed they are the Copper Yuma 2963 but shipping is $22. Yikes

    why do you want to clean them? have some RW bourbon round toe that will never be cleaned other than a brush off of dirt (so it doesn't get onto the carpet).

    I mean, how do you suggest to clean dirt/refresh the shoes. They do not need to be polished.

    Once had a pair of office shoes that were a brownish suede that needed to look good. Picked up this what looked like a large eraser that was used to rub off the dark/dirt spots. Not familiar with the finish on your boots but maybe check this eraser out: http://www.shoebuy.com/kiwi-select-...?cm_mmc=googleproductads_pla-_-none-_-none-_-{keyword}

    There is no difference. Rough & tough is not harder to break in. Rough & tough is the combination of oils etc which give the leather a distressed appearance even though the leather isn't actually distressed.
