When the Red Wing Shoe Company first started making boots, people still rode horses to work. Much has changed. Today their boots are found around the globe. For over ninety five years, they have held a solid commitment to four basic principles: Quality, Craftsmanship, Durability and Comfort.
I've owned a lot of boots, and these are my favorites. I wish the sole had a bit of tread/traction, but I'll get that fixed when it's time for a resole (and if I really wanted, I could always add a topy in the meantime).These boots are just beautiful to look at, have great style, and the fit is fantastic. They really mold to your feet and are a joy to wear. The only potential drawback is that there is basically no shape/support to the footbed, but you eventually create your own heel/toe indentations, and too much of a footbed makes you lose all the muscle in your foot, so that's no good either. If that bothers you, just add a footbed insert (and size up 1/2 size from what would fit if you had no footbed).I'd say these fit 1/2 - 1 full size smaller than sneakers. I tend to be somewhere between a 9 and 9.5 in most shoes, but the 8.5 was what fit best. I'm a 9 in the Beckmans, so the fit on these seems to be a bit different, but both fit wonderfully once I had my size dialed in. If it helps, I'm an 8.5 in CDBs.Buy this boot.
