    So... fake?

    I just called Red Wing to clarify this. Model 9011 (the US version of the GT) has no logo no the side. The 1911 (International version of the GT) has a logo on the side.

    Can anyone second that?


    You just called Red Wing and you need more proof?

    Yes this is old news. They both have the same name, different product code. I haven't seen 1911 sold for new in months.

    Just about to pull the trigger on some size 10 GT's, true size is 10.5 in dunks although my feet are just a hair wide so I can wear a 10E comfortably as well. When I get them I'll let you wide-footed gentlemen know what's up.

    These shoes run a bit wide, there's countless mentions to GT sizing in this thread and SF in general already.

    I bought a pair of GTs today for a durable but semi-fashionable winter boot. I wanted something similar to the Ricards, but the only thing I could find in my price range (Varvatos on sale) was sold out in my size. I'll just wait until Boxing Day or the PS sale in January to pick up a more fashionable boot. Anyways, the point of my post: there's a store in Toronto, Get Outside, that is selling the GTs in black and cherry for $179 CAD plus $15 to ship to the US (free shipping within Canada).

    Yeah, that's an amazing price, especially for Canadians.

    Almost makes me want to get a black pair to go with my cherry pair.

    These boots are fast becoming the new Chucks or Dunks.

    They definitely arent. I doubt you see anyone on the street wearing GTs and if you do they are probably from the forum. They arent at all popular outside of SF and SuFu.

    Um, yes they are. 1912 series, I believe. There are more GT models than the plain toe 1911/1914 models people have on here, but they're euro/jap versions mostly and harder to come by (i.e. not carried by zappos or cultizm).

    Would you happen to have a current source for the 1012 series GT? I prefer the moc toe to the plain toe on the GTs sold by Zappo's.

    To Get Smart, Tarmac, whacked, and any other regular on MC,

    Since I'm a consistent US9D / UK8 in dress shoes, I gather US8.5 is the way to go with these right? They'll mostly be worn with midweight cotton socks...

    I think I can help here...

    For dress shoes I have:

    9D AE Hale
    9D AE Taunton (Borderline loose.)
    9D AE Bel Air
    9D AE Mora (Borderline loose.)
    9D AE Soho
    8.5 AE Soho (Borderline tight.)

    I bought an 8 in the Red Wing GT and I'm very happy I did, as they fit perfectly in my opinion. (They required a bit of fighting to get into for the first week or so, but they're absolutely perfect now.)

    I suggest sizing 1 down for the GT if you have a narrow or normally wide foot.

    Oh my God, the backs of my ankles hurt so much. They're both pretty bruised.

    How long do these take to break in?
