    Might have to kop a pair of Red Wings if LL Bean does not work for me. Recommendations for a relatively cheap model?
    Late answer, but i reckon the 875 is fairly cheap - and available most places. Also look at Ebay, i got the 3140 Chukka for 100$ including shipping.

    hey mission accomplished.
    i reserved my hd for good porn. i got jet's pic from an arms akimbo post, so you can stop your face-saving tall tale now, dude. you can do the search if u like.
    nothing wrong with 875's and gt's in my book if they fit your look, but i don't wear them atm

    Some of you guys were talking about the Wabasha chukkas... Size down half a size, as the width is E (wide).

    I go TTS and never size down, but I have slightly wide feet, but the wabasha are mostly E and therefore I normally size down 1/2 a size.

    anyone have any experience with how much the toe box stretches in the beckman/GTs
    i sized down one size bc i wanted to have the right length but after 3-4 days of wear the toebox is still clamping my foot pretty painfully.

    i really would prefer not to size up .5 though.... any recs?

    So to take care of them, do I only need to put Obenauf and that's it? There's different kinds of Obenauf, do I just buy the little combo set? Sorry for the newb question. I am a newb.

    Thanks

    How about those Frye Arkansas Mid Lace?

    They are made in USA and look decent.

    Frye>RW

    which models are you comparing?

    if your speaking in generalities, comparing one brand to another, i respectfully disagree.
    from what i've seen, through ownership of both brands, red wing slays frye in regards to styling, construction/longevity and comfort, IMO.

    I know it's the cool thing to hate on RW these days, but seriously? Frye? Frye has fallen off in quality for quite some time.
