    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.
    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.

    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

    Thanks for the replies

    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.

    What kind of socks do people wear with these? I was planning on getting a pair of wool socks to wear this winter, but that's probably gonna be to hot for late summer and fall.

    I don't think these boots need special socks. o_O?
    Anything goes, man.

    Yes. ...at least my tag says so and everything I've read on retailers sites says so.

    Can anyone tell me the difference between the 1911 and the 1914? They both look exactly the same to me.
