Show only see all. Clean and ready to wear these weigh 2 lbs 11 oz each and are a total of 9" in height.
I ordered the same size as I order for New Ballance shoes. No quality issues that I can find. These should last a very long time. I love my rough necks. Not my first pair, so I already knew to work the leather real good with some mink oil.
Particularly the back part of the boot. With a little work there's not much break in needed. I've had them for a week now wearing them everyday they already feel really good. I'm returning these since they are a little too chunky looking for my personal style, but this is a beautiful pair of boots that has a fantastic leather copper rough and tough that looks like it would get a great patina in a relatively short period of time. Definitely appears to be a good value for the boot that will last for years.
There are obviously several reviews on these boots and of all the varying opinions, I think the most important thing to note is that measuring your foot on a Brannock device will save yourself a lot of trial and error time. If you don't have a Brannock device why would you? So I measure a 9. Based upon those measurements and other reviews I actually ordered three different sizes - 9D, 9EE, 8.
I also tried on each boot with a regular cotton crew sock, a midweight merino wool sock and a super thick merino wool sock. For some reference, my foot was swimming in the 9EE and knowing the leather will break in a bit it was a non-starter.
As for the 9D, I could get my foot in there with each sock except for the heavy wool - now once in the 9D, my foot fit OK but I just didn't feel like I had the proper toe splay. Foot got in pretty easy with each of the three socks and felt like it was hugging the sides of my foot just right.
And, I found that my big toe popped up just behind the moc toe stitching on the 8. As for the leather, it's fantastic. Feels soft - but not as soft as the Horween leather used on Wolverine mile boots FWIW, I wear a 9D for my Wolverine 's though I can't speak to how these Red Wing's will eventually break in but judging from my initial impressions I sense they will be terrific in time.
It's all subjective, but I think the boots look even better in person. It's not to say the Briar Oil slick was a bad color but for my first Red Wing purchase I just liked the lighter of the leathers. The white bottoms are super comfy and it's a bonus that the boots construction allows the bottoms to be re-soled We bought two pairs before finding the right size.
It was only our fault in sizing but I would say they for us they ran one whole size bigger. And the third and final pair we got in were much more light in tan. A little disappointed because the other two pairs that did not fit were just right in color. Love the style, the minimalist sole, the materials Really tight across the top of the foot. They're hard to break in when I can only stand to wear them for a couple of hours at a time.
Initially purchased these for the smart casual look required for work. The briar leather has just the right tone of brown and red to give all types of attire versatility.
Would I buy these again? Should you buy them? The Red Wing quality leather exterior is immediately noticeable. Hands down the best Chukka on the planet. Thanks Zappos and a red Wing!! This is a day 1 review, and if you've ever owned Red Wings before, you probably know they take break-in. As typical for red wing, I ordered a full size less than my normal sneaker size and the length is correct. The top of the foot is the stiffest part of these boots for me, and I'm sure it'll take a week or so of pain to make them fit like a glove..
We'll see how they hold up, but have no reason not to expect the best from these! An absolutely great boot. Before purchase, was concerned about build quality based on previous experience with Red Wing work boots.
I was also concerned about the break-in period. I can honestly say that my concerns were for naught. The build quality was great and break-in was relatively easy.
