    I was set to order RW GTs in a 9.5, as I normally wear a 9.5 Clark DB and a 9 in Doc Matins (though both are just a tad too narrow on me). I thought I was a 10E in US sizing.

    I went into the RW store to see if they had any GTs in stock (or anything else on that last) for me to try on. They didn't, but the sales guy measured my feet and tried to convince me I need a RW 10 as my feel are getting wider!!

    So now I'm confused! I definitely won't buy from eBay or B&S now. Will order from RW or Shoebuy and keep returning till I get it right, I guess. [​IMG]


    I'm a couple of months late on this post but I had the same issue. I base my shoe size around a 9.5 and got measured at the red wing store. They told me it was a 10C or something but all the lifestyle stuff fits me in a 9 which is what I've settled on.

    The boots are just uncomfortable at first. The break in time is hell. I'm looking forward to breaking in a pair this fall/winter. I just need to find one the right model now.

    Yeah, I guess not too many people liked them as J Crew only had them for the one season. Too bad you still didn't have them (I am jonesing for them). The mainline 899's seem too bulky around the welt and I don't like the leather nearly as much as the briar oil slick leather on the j crew version. I actually just missed a pair on ebay that sold last week in a 9.

    I'm thinking of getting these bad boys:

    http://www.cultizm.com/product_info....r-Harness.html

    I've gotten a better price, I just wanted to show you guys the actual picture - what do you think?

    In my other shoes I am a 11.5 - says that I should size down 1, so I should get these in a 10.5?

    thanks!

    ^^^ Nice, can't go wrong with those at all.

    General consensus is size down a whole size, but make sure where you're buying them from has a decent return policy just in case they don't fit.

    Could anyone point me in the direction of the 8103 in a size us 11?

    I don't care about the costs anymore, so anything will do.

    And if someone has them for sale, and would sell, just let me know.

    just got a copy of this over the weeknd, Japanese magazine "2nd" did a special Red Wing only issue. lots of pics of every model, writeups on each (in japanese so irrelevant for most), photos of guys wearing them, historical ads etc.
