Red Wing logger boots used to the point where they're juuust broken in enough to look how I'd want them (workwear looks terrible new) but with 75% of their lifespan still left for $55 off ebay. Pretty awesome considering how hard it is to find EE shoes in the first place much less for a steal like that.
Also I have no idea what everyone is talking about when they say size down a whole size for Red Wing I wear 10EE in everything except new balance (which run small) and these are 10EE and they fit perfect.
IÂ´ve sized down a full size in RW to use with light weight socks, but most styles run atleast a half size big imo. I made the rookie mistake to get my true size once, they were huge...

Don't have a camera up here but I'll do a waywt when I move back to Illinois in a couple weeks. I read the Red Wing thread AFTER purchasing these and felt like an idiot for doing so when everyone recommended to size down a whole size, but I figured I'd be able to resell these since they were going for $90 before the seller cancelled everybody's bids (seller realized they weren't steel toe like he had said, a bonus for me!) with an hour left to go on the auction at about 1am and I was the only person awake to rebid and grab them for their starting price. The sizing inconsistancy may be because every other shoe I own might run short or because my feet are truly EEEE feet and maybe going up one size lengthwise balances that out and is just what feels right to me? EDIT: Also I just realized these are the exact same Logger boot model as the ones on a huge billboard ad for a shoe store I see numerous times a week near my house... Maybe superliminal advertising really works. EDIT AGAIN: Why the heck did i type 95% up there I meant 75% maybe my brain is being an optimist or something
^ Very cool shoes.
Not too much lately, just a pair of GTs, a shawl neck cardigan from H&M (that's much too nice to be from H&M), and this W+H sweater:
All my time/money lately has gone into this recent purchase:
