    Thanks for your answer. What do you think about the size, are they equal?
    My local store only have the 8052 in store, the other one has to be ordered to the store specially for me.

    Yes, sizing runs the same for both. Size down .5 from your TTS size like most Red Wings.

    Just scored some factory seconds 875 in oro-iginal from ebay for $129 shipped! No apparent damage or imperfections at all, just some dust on the shoes. Not sure if they are still available, but they are a steal for that price.

    I picked up some Red Wing Chukkas for £90 - a bargain. However, they are about half a size too short: when I stand my toes touch the end of the boot.

    I am thinking about using some shoe stretchers to increase the length/stretch of the leather by a few mm. Would this work?

    Hi,

    You can stretch for width not length.

    Bro best way to stretch red wings is with lighter fluid, works like a champ.

    Hi guys, just bought some Red Wing 875's from redwingshoes.com.au via the web.

    I faxed them tracings of my feet (AWESOME!), and they recommended a 10EE, but since I have a gut feeling my feet are deceptively large I went the 10.5EE.

    I normally wear 12 US which are sometimes too big, sometimes too small. I don't know with shoes.

    So considering the down sizing and extra width I'll be packing, these will fit me...

    Anyway, hopefully they arrive tomorrow and I can try them on and they work out. Will post pictures when I get them.

    I normally wear a 12 in Nikes or Vans and my Iron rangers are a 10.5 EE. You should be cool.
