    Thanks for the heads up ManofKent. I´m waiting for a pair of 685s, so if I like the fit I will consider the black ones.

    Mine arrived today. I'm impressed with the quality for the price - glad I was forced to size down though, they do come up large IMO.

    685s (Epaulets Horsehide) received yesterday and after 8 hours it looks like there is no break in period.
    ManofKent, do you know if Thorogood 9.5UK = 10.5US?

    The ones on amazon.co.uk seem to be sized down 1/2 a size on the US marked size so a 9.5 UK would be a 10D US, but I would say they're about half a size larger than Redwing anyway (more if you remove the footbed).

    I wear a 9.5 (UK) in Desert Boots and my feet are 3,9" wide - should I go with a 9D, 9EE or 9.5D?
    Thanks doods.

    I'd order the same U.S. size as your Clark's desert boots measure in U.S. sizing.

    A US 9 should be about right. You'd probably get away with a 9D unless you find the db's snug width wise.

    Really? I'm usually a US 10, sizing down for a whole size seems a little bit much.. Damn, I really want some nice boots, but having no stores that carry them around here makes it so fucking difficult.

    Just ordered the 6" Moc Toe in Tobacco. Sized down a full size from my regular sneaker size, praying for a good fit. Will report back with fit pics when they arrive!

    Just ordered the tobacco 6" wedges, noticed they changed the outsole from the Vibram to a proprietary 'Max-Wear' type outsole that is supposed to outlast the Christy. Went for my Chippewa sizing, 11.5D.

    I found this thread helpful before purchasing the moc wedges in black almost a year ago. A couple things I'd add:

    Positives:

    - the stitching work on these shoes is awesome and bombproof
    - the comfort is excellent
    - the price can't be beat, these are *almost* redwing moc-toe killers
    - leather is heavily oiled and feels like it'll last virtually forever. low maintenance and looks the business in black.

    Negatives

    - the midsole material is rubber, not leather (it's colored to look like leather but it isn't... not a huge deal but worth noting)
    - Cristy outsole wears fast, the in-house Max-Wear sole Thorogood is using on the other boots is surely a step up
    - the leather doesn't wick at all because it is so heavily oiled. Interior climate is moist and clammy over the course of a full day, of which I've spent many working on my feet in these shoes.
    - the insole is supportive, but is synthetic, hot, and does not wick. switched mine out w/ a leather one.

    All things considered these are a super value for as low as $100 shipped if you know where to look. I will get these resoled with some sort of Vibram commando sole soon.

    Where are you finding these for $100 shipped, if you don't mind me asking? The cheapest I've seen so far has been at http://www.theunionbootpro.com for about $117 shipped after coupons.

    That's where I purchased mine. I think the price has gone up since I bought, and/or the coupons aren't as strong.

    Can anyone compare the fit to either nike janoskis or sperry topsiders? Would like to pick up a pair and really want to try and get the right size.

    Got these over the weekend - some ankle discomfort - should I give a few days to break that in or try another size?

    I'm gonna go ahead and necrobump here but I just wanted to share that I bought these Thorogood boots:

    http://www.amazon.com/Thorogood-Boe...377503818&sr=8-1&keywords=thorogood+horsehide

    [​IMG]

    They are horsehide, Made in USA, Goodyear welted, a great price and the boots are absolutely beautiful in real life -- despite the fact that the Amazon pictures makes them look terrible. Highly recommended.

    I really wish Thorogood would release a proper heritage line in the USA. Now that Epaulet doesn't carry them, I don't know where to get them besides Highkickz (but they never have my size). Looking around the web, it looks like Europe has a line from them that look superb. Check it out:

    I'd really love to get my hands on these but who knows how? Gah!! Made in USA and you can't even get them here, sad situation.

    Anyway, here's that site:

    Thorogood, take my money!

    Love the horsehides, blaster! Go and snap some pics whenever you've got the time, please, I'd love to see more!

    Also, I've been wondering - would you order the same size in Thorogood mocs as in Red Wing mocs?
