    If your pinky toe is getting squished, how in the world is the length "fine"?

    Well it's getting squashed from the side not the front of the boot. If the length was any more then my foot would be sliding back and forth in the boot.

    I just noticed this post, I wonder if the break in will accommodate the width of my foot?

    I have had mine for a week now and had the same issue with mine. It is getting better and they are getting more comfortable. I think you just have to break them in.

    Ah cool. Just to clarify, the model is 1907. Made a typo before.

    How are you finding them? They are chunkier than I expected. The leather is very different - not sure what kind of conditioner I could use on it.

    If it takes you a 'year' to 'break' in a pair of shoes then clearly they're too small for you. It shouldn't take a year to break a £160 pair of shoes.

    Buy a little too big than too small.

    Yea I figured you meant the 1907's.

    Its funny I used to always hate the moc boots because I thought they looked to chunky but over the past year the more I saw them and after trying them on I became a fan. I mean it takes some getting used to as I am used to my Beckmans but I am enjoying them just as much if not more. As fare as caring for them I havent bought any product but this should help you choose the right stuff. http://www.redwingheritage.com/care

    I'd go TTS on them. That's what I did after the half size smaller was also squishing my toes...

    You know, it's been 3 days and they've actually gotten more comfortable. I can imagine them getting nicer in a couple months.
    I like to have a snug fit and am not a fan of heel slip, so this is probably the size for me.

    The heal only usually slips for the first week or so as they're breaking in - a bit of heel slip, intitially, is normal.

    Does anyone know which one of Otterwax or Obernauf LP would be better to wax Iron Ranger Hawthornes ? I know most people use LP but I was curious if anyone has used Otterwax or both.

    Otterwax is built for a completely different purpose than for shoe/leather protection...so I'd definitely go with Obenauf's if you want to use a beeswax type of product on your IRs. Different compositions and additives. I like otterwax and have used it on a few things that I own (a jacket, canvas backpack, etc), but I would never use it on my shoes/boots.

    Thank you for clearing that up for me. I did not know if it would be better since it was more of a natural product and I thought I read where some of the formulas had changed for Obernauf and Sno Seal, containing less wax. But I might have dreamed that lol..... I will definitely go with the Obernaufs though. Most of the pictures I have seen that I like used it any way.
