    How comfortable would you say your red wings are once you worn them in?

    I cant wait to get a pair of iron rangers 8112 but I'm scared that I might not be able to actually wear them since my feet are some of the most sensitive when it comes to blisters. But if they actually get worn in after some weeks of wear I'll gladly walk (literally) through the pain.

    I have four pairs and have had all from blisters as hell to nothing at all. But they all are comfy when worn in. The Beckmans a bit less than the IRs. Boot they're still boots not sneakers...

    Ok, thanks. As long as they're comfy when worn in I'm good to go.

    these are definitely 875 (oro-iginal).....
    having said that, i like oro-russet more than oro-iginal - but this is just my personal taste so please don't listen! ;-)

    peace!

    Yeah Oro Russet is red. They're my favorite RW color, too.

    My Iron Rangers never gave my feet any trouble at all, but the moc toe boots were rough on the back of my ankles at first. I recommend thick socks to deal with that.

    I'm at home in the US for the moment, enjoying my summer vacation... but I'll be back in Japan in about two weeks! My place in Iwate doesn't have AC, so this was a good time to come home. My goal for this fall is to spend less on clothes, I bought a ton of FH stuff last year.

    hey guys, I recently bought a 9111 size us 8d (my sneaker size is us 9) and when I walk with the shoes on there seems to be about a fingers space extra at the back part. This makes my heel keep "lifting off" when I walk. is this because the shoe is very stiff initially or did I buy a size too big?

    Sounds like too big...
    But I dont know for sure, because base on your sneaker size (9), your 8d should be fine, IMO.

    #9106 is the new number of the old #8131 model - so they're the same but some people proclaim there are slight differences between them (i.e. the quality of the leather, the colour etc, etc)

    What should I use on my 8131's?

    The store where I bought them said to use mink oil. Does this sound right?

    On the Red Wing site it says the 8131 is made of "Oro Russet Portage Leather". On their Care & Restoration page it says:ALL NATURAL LEATHER CONDITIONER | Leathers: Blackstar, Boomer, Chrome, Mustang, Portage

    But I've read some threads on here that says to use boot oil.

    I'm so confused.
