    oh, and for those of you looking to order the gentleman traveler:

    http://www.redwingcasuals.com/mens/h...traveler.html#

    i found that through the style code (4 digit number), you can call in to any store on their website and they'll ship it direct from their factory. i don't believe they're discontinued, the lady on the phone told me they still had all sizes.

    she also confirmed that they ran half a size LARGE, so order 1/2 size smaller than your normal size if you are looking to purchase these online.


    I'd order at least half a size smaller than normal sizing. I've worn between an 11 and 12 in other Red Wing boots, and started out ordering an 11 in the GT 9011. When it came in, it was obviously too big, so I asked them to get a 10.5 and hold the 11s. A week and a half later, I took the 10.5s home because I didn't want to wait for them to order a 10, but after wearing them around the apartment for half an hour the next day, I called up and ordered the 10. Hopefully it'll be perfect; it should come in sometime this week.

    thanks stick, this could be very helpful as i've wanted these for a while. i've been kicking myself since i passed them up last fall.

    to clarify, i'm assuming that you order by calling one of the land-based red wing retailers and asking them to ship from the factory and NOT one of the online retailers (zappos et al.) is that right?


    I've done this by walking into a land-based Red Wing retailer and having them order it right to the store, and neither of the Red Wing stores I've gone to in the area made it sound like there was anything odd about doing so. The (excellent) employee of one of the stores, who really only works weekends and took this job after retiring from a blue-collar career of wearing Red Wings, thought that the price was crazy, though [​IMG] The other store is mostly staffed by young ladies, and every time I come in to try on the latest sizing iteration of the GT whoever is helping me ends up taking one of the boots and showing it off to the other employees. They all ask how I heard of it, because they'd never seen or heard anything about it.

    My $0.02

    are the 1911's the same as the GT's?

    if they're the same, is it possible to use the $209 on the cultizm GT"s to get a price adjustment for zappo's $240 GT's?

    Just got my GT size 9. Normally I wear 10 but, Vidi, (and all) thanks after reading I ordered 1 size down. Bingo! [​IMG] Fits like a glove, except the D width is pinching, I guess that'll stretch. OP sorry for teh hijack. ps. ordered from Zappos Sat afternoon, shoes arrived Monday am. Great service.

    The 9011 is the same as the 1911 but without the Red Wing logo.

    It appears Cultizm got some more 1911's in stock.

    I ordered a pair of the Gentleman Travelers from Cultizm and I received a pair of the 9011s, no red wing logo on the outside of the boots. They recently restocked and have most sizes available.

    I must say that it was a pleasure doing business with Cultizm. I ordered on Wednesday night and the package arrived Monday around noon. I didn't have to pay customs fees so the total came up to about 205$ shipped to Canada.

    I sized down 1/2 size and it seems to be OK. Probably could have sized down a full size but some extra room is good for thick socks and keeping your feet warm in the harsh February weather around here.

    I also ordered a pair expecting 1911s with the logo, but instead received 9011s. I sized down a half size. It is just a tad roomy, but fine for the reasons stated above.

    i just ordered 2 minutes ago from cultizm. i'm guessing i'll get my package in less than 1 week (next monday)?

    for those of you who ordered from cultizm - (johnnylaw): do you have to be home to sign for the package, and was it via ups or fedex?

    update:

    so it looks like they've already sent out the package, only5 hours or so after i ordered it! on the fedex website it said that it's to be delivered to my doorstep on the 21st, before 10:30am. i'm pretty sure this is wrong...am i right?

    i chose the express shipping btw, which was the same price as the standard shipping. their shipping procedures are a bit confusing, which is why i ask. not that it matters of course, it shows up when it shows up. it's a bit ironic that i'm ordering a shoe that's cheaper overseas when it was made in the usa...

    Their shipping is amazingly fast; I've received things in a day.

    Has anyone had any experience with Cultizm's return policy? Would I have any problems exchanging/returning if I were to order the wrong size?

    stickonatree,

    I had to sign for the package. I happened to be home at the time, so it was no problem. You can contact Fed-Ex to ask about their policy if you plan on being away.

    ok, i just signed for the package. i ordered tuesday night, and received it at 9:30am thursday morning. INSANELY fast from halfway around the world! so after some inspection, the only thing i noticed "wrong" with the shoes was some cracking in the leather around left shoe forefoot area. however, given the overall thickness of this leather i doubt it'll be any problem, they probably just left it out on a shelf too long. also they didn't ship in a separate box, so now i'm forever reminded of the place where i bought them from. here's a photo of the intense color for those of you still on the fence, more burgundy saturated than on zappos: [​IMG]

    hey stickonatree could you post a pic or two of you wearing them with jeans or something? I am a wimp and am still thinking about making the Black cherry GT's my first (and only pair of boots).

    thanks
