    ok i decided to not use insoles also just thick cotton socks. what shoe polish best matches the black cherry color? i read some people using kiwi neutral but mine already has a lot of scratches since i wear them pretty hard.

    Just got a pair of black cherry GTs. Should I pre-treat with a coat or two of Obenaufs?

    Neutral covers scratches surprisingly well. Anything besides that will change the color a little bit. You may or may not like the results.

    Not unless it's snowing right now in your part of the world.

    Or you plan to go duck hunting in them.

    i bought the kiwi cordovan shoe polish it matches surprisingly well. this shoe it scuffs so easily i don't wear them hard at all. the back part of the heels are all scuffed pretty deep. the shoe polish helped out a lot though its less noticeable and looks a lot nicer now. i bought some spenco insoles that i'll try out soon i wear my redwing gt's about 14hrs day 4-6 days a week.

    +1 on superfeet insoles. I don't have GT's but I recently started wearing these in other shoes such as db's and I love them.

    PSA- (I can't post in FS so not trying to break any rules) If you're researching these shoes and looking to save some bucks I just put these almost new ones up on Ebay. Selling because of sizing. I'm 9 in chucks and 9.5-10 in almost everything else. I measure 9.5. I ended up going with a 9. $159 no reserve, 100% positive feedback Ebay - Red Wing 9011 Gentleman Traveler Black Cherry GT 9.5

    I'm trying to visualize black cherry GT's with some slim khaki or navy chinos to see if I could get away with these for work wear. Any thoughts/pics? Thanks!

    Think they might be a bit industrial for a semi-formal work environment, but if you can wear 'em with confidence you might be able to pull it off!
