    Just thought it would be a good idea to start a general topic about RedWing shoes and boots.

    Since i've bought my first pair i really started to love and appreciate these shoes, they combine very high quality and comfort in one shoe.

    So for anyone who has a question about RedWing's, they can ask them here.

    I have a question about taking care of the leather.
    I've heard RedWing also sells mink-oil, does anyone have experience with it?

    Some online stores that sell Red Wings:

    ..

    if you buy your wings at the official distributor in germany you always get mink oil with them :D

    definetly the best to keep your boots smooth & durable...
    1. mink oil on the boot
    2. wait 24h
    3. polish your boot with a soft brush

    Real nice collection Dave, good variety, and it doesn't need to be big since these will last forever!

    When i see the mink-oil somewhere i'll be sure to get me a bottle.
    Mine don't need care right now, they're still brand new.

    Here's a link to the RedWing site btw.> http://www.redwing.com

    Dave, I've been wanting those chukka's for a while now. I went to three or four different shops in The Netherlands that sell Redwing shoes, but they didn't have them. What's your secret? ;)

    The 3140 chukka's look great indeed, do you also wear 'm with you ALD Dave?
    And how is sizing on those, the same as the 875?

    Yeah I do wear them with ALD, even with my Royal pant...

    The last on those is much thinner, they killed my right foot at first...now they're like a pair of sneakers...

    Allright, so they don't look too small with Royals, that's great!
    You wouldn't happen to have a picture wearing them in that combo by any chance?

    So you wear the same size in those as in the 875?
