    did you get hit by customs etc

    Good question. I'm always a bit concerned by that, but considering these are made in the USA, I theoretically shouldn't have to pay any duty/brokerage/etc. I fully expect to pay the taxes at my doorstep as per usual.

    That said, I think assuming I have to let go of $20-40 more dollars to actually receive them, the price is still far superior to the Zappos price for Canadians.

    cultizm didn't have my size for several months. I ordered from Shermanbrothers.com for $212 shipped, no tax, but they recently adjusted their MSRP to $274... [​IMG]. Sherman drop ships directly from the Red Wing factory though. Sounds like zappos with discount is the cheapest right now for a full size run.

    I just got a pair of black GTs from Zappos. Just in case someone doesn't know, if you go through live.com you can get 18% cashback which brings them down to $200.

    Live cashback is up to 22.5% for Zappos now.

    has anyone here bought the rugged classic Redwings from jcrew? i'm considering them for f/w, so i'm wondering what the sizing is like and if i'll need to size down. so if you own a pair, i'd really appreciate some size advice or any general thoughts/opinions about the boots. thanks in advance.

    btw, you can buy your regular size if the ½ size down option isnt avail. My black cherry GTs are my regular shoe size (½ size larger than they should be for GT) and I just bought one of those $15 gel insoles and it fits like a glove with no looseness.

    Can anyone recommend a pair of insoles. I think I need a little bit more arch support. I havent heard anything good about the ones you can pick up at your local drug store. How should one expect the fit to change with added insoles?

    Thanks

    They just get smaller. Pretty much any insole, no matter how cheap, will probably be an improvement. A shoe manufacturer will never put a $10 insole in your shoe, but you can.

    If you're gonna get insoles get the more expensive $15-20 gel ones. The cheap $3 foam insoles suck and they wear thru pretty fast. It's a good way to fill the space if the shoes are ½ size too roomy

    I own the 1907 which I believe is the same fit as the jcrew model (875 should also be the same I would guess). If you have a Red Wing store I'd go try on some 875s. Otherwise, I found through trial and error with my 1907s that they fit true to size. I wear a 12 in sneakers and 11.5 in most dress shoes and ended up staying with the 11.5Ds in the 1907. I actually bought the 11s first because I heard from some people these run a little big, but found they were too narrow and shorter than I expected. I believe they do run true to size if your feet are normal to wide in width.

    This is a bit off-topic, but could anyone recommend a good online store that sells Redwing 875s?

    somehow, i don't think so. if you paste the text of the link in, it actually takes you to an online store selling the red wing 875.

    I'm guessing he mixed up the tags. The link was probably supposed to appear as "google.com", but once clicked upon it would then take you to the store that sells the boots.
