    Dear RW fans ;)

    Finally I bought a pair of Red Wings!!
    A friend sold them for a nice price and he wore them just 3 times.
    I'm totally in love with this colour!!
    They are the 213s Oxblood, here some photos:
    btw do u think this shoe polish is any good or should i get the RW mink oil?

    Those boots look great Luca.

    How are you guys sizing on Redwings? Unfortunately, I'll have to order online...

    I'm a size 8 in Clarks desert boots.

    thank you!
    I had to size down 1 size from my H by Hudson boots.
    I'm not sure if u size down 1 for every RW model.
    I had the issue, that the left boot was a bit bigger than the left, but I had no receipt anymore, so i contacted the RW costumer service and the will change my boots :)

    Hey all,
    Been lurkin' awhile to see what boot I wanted for fall/winter season. After looking at this thread, I got a pair of RW9016 (cigar) at a very nice price. Should I use the Obe LP now or beat em up first DSC_0497.jpg ? Also, what polish to use for this color? Thanks for the replies.

    btw do u prefer Lederbalsam or leather grease (Lederfett) on your Red Wings? To get a nice patina?
    I used Lederbalsam yet should I switch to leather grease?

    Got my Red Wing 3141 Chukkas in the mail today.

    Loving them so far - they look very nice!

    I got my usual size of 8. Glad I didn't size down as these are just right with an insole (which I always like to use).

    They actually look quite a bit redder than pictures I have seen. I'll order some of the Mink Oil tonight.

    Dear Nudies forum,

    I am going crazy. Is there anyone here who can tell me whether there are different leathers being used for same model #?.. I want:

    - some roughout leather chukkas

    The 3142 supposedly was a roughout model, but unavailable everywhere. The 3143 is both being described as a suede model and a roughout model:

    http://www.classicredwingshoes.co.uk/products/3143

    So my question is: this 3143 model, commonly described as "Red Wing Chukka in Sand Mohave", is it a rough out leather or suede?..

    I actually did some more research and the material on the 3143s is roughout.
