Hi, I'm trying to order some Red Wing GTs in black, but it ends up totaling 284 USD on zappos, which is crazy and like 350$ canadian. Is there any other site with more reasonable prices?

you could try cultizm.com - they're known to have good prices. endless.com also had a 30% off promotion for a while as well.

cultizm is probably your best bet. got mine from there, and they mark the value down so we pay minimal duties at the border. very fast too.

It isn't an accident that you are having trouble getting them cheap. We go to great lenghts to ensure that Canadians can't get Red Wings. They are American boots. Get your own workwear.

Revolve has them for $300 but there was a 30% off code floating around that would make them $210 shipped (if it works on Red Wings). I bought mine from cultizm for about the same price.

GT's have only been available in America for about a year, before that you had to get them from Europe. Weird that one had to have American boots imported from Germany.

$284 isn't a bad price, I think I paid $240 from Zappos for mine.

I just ordered a pair from getoutside. I would have ordered from cultizm, but they didn't have my size. 300 total, or about 50$ less than zappos would cost.

Ya, you do sound like a broken record, You would think thatby now you would realize that not everybody thinks they are ugly, and as such, the answer to your question (that you ask everytime somebody says Red Wing) is that they are not ugly.

Really, it is getting pretty tiresome and you would think you would just be quiet about it- is anybody forcing you to buy a pair? Or are you concerned that because they are popular here that you will have to buy a pair of ugly shoes to fit in?

Save up a little more and get something much better.


The second ones look like a pair of Pecos, so that I find odd. You say you got a pair of Ropers.

As someone above already mentioned, getoutside is the best source. The prices are decent too.

OH SHIT YOU GOT ME. I think I'm concerned about the groupthink that goes on here: Guy with lots of posts buys something Other guy starts topic about X Everyone wants X Guys post X in WAYWT and look like idiots wearing clothes someone else picked for them I guess I really shouldn't give a shit. I only post about Red Wings being ugly when I'm bored and there isn't anything better to read or respond to. There's a few people here that really do have style...and their own style. Most just come here to find out how to be different and get chicks (hint: the former doesn't lead to the latter). Carry on.
