    I was never into Red Wings, Whites, or boots of any sort. But I spent too much time on the sufu "Shoes that look better with age" thread. Now I'm itching to get a pair.

    Email this place, it's an official Red Wing store. They carry (or can get) any red wing boot/shoe. They may or may not, but they might..
    http://www.calgary-32ndave.redwingshoestore.com/red-wing-shoe-repair-calgary



    Can someone give me advice for my first Red Wing boot?
    I am looking for something that can survive the -20 to +10 Celcius Canadian Mountain winter weather here. Due to that range, we typically get slush and tons of wet sidewalks and iced out sidewalks within a week's period (We get insane weather flux due to Pacific air and the mountains). So I went with Timberlands and they're still holding up just fine after 3 years of heavy usage (I hike with them in the summer lol). Definitely scratched and scuffed but probably the best $100 USD I've spent in my life so far in regards to clothes.

    But now I am working in an advertising agency and I want something nicer but not too posh (there is no dress code, so that gives you an idea of what people will wear and since most people are creative types from art backgrounds....) I also don't want to look like a total doofus to co-workers or clients showing up in Timberlands lol.

    Anyways, some questions

    1) Will they survive the constant slush weather? I take the train and local commute options, these boots will get wet and stepped on. It's usually "bum to bum" on the train, it's freaking overloaded at rush hours. I am careful and I take the time to care for my shoes (I am a sneakerhead afterall) though. I got cedar shoe trees and all the cleaning products. The Red Wing store here will also provide free re-lacing, red wing oiling, and repairs. So will the shoes hold up so long as I upkeep them? I don't want to blow $300 on boots and see them rot into beef jerkey in one winter :-(

    2) Are they lined at all? I remember going to high school in -30 Celcius weather with sneakers. My toes freaking froze...surprised I never got frost bite. My timberlands are good to about -25C...then I start to feel it as well.

    3) Are they worth the $200-300 USD price tags as general shoes?

    4) How much maintenance do you really need? I see people on mynudies oiling their boots like MAD.

    5) While I realize people buy these to "Age them" (And I do love how they age), I need these to age at a reasonable pace and look "Office environment wearable", not like a beat up pair of steel toes if you know what I mean. Think they could still look nice after 2 years?


    I was thinking of...

    875, 3141, 9011, 9010,

    All from a local official Red Wing store here.

    p/s: i'm planning to buy RW 6 inch Round toe or RW ranger.

    Tk you so much!

    Just bit the bullet and ordered a pair of 8111s from Australia's only RW dealer.
    Got them in a size 9 (1 down from my normal shoe size) and will post pics and sizing/fit info when they get here.

    Sorry about this...but I have another sizing question.

    I bought a pair of 9.5 Iron Rangers and they arrived today.
    I was initially pretty set on getting size 9, but after faxing a tracing of my foot to Red Wing Australia, they measured me as a 9.5 and convinced me to try ordering them first.

    The boots fit ok - left foot feels pretty comfortable and the arch seemed to be in a good position but my right foot (which is slightly shorter) was less comfy. They certainly don't feel tight in any way - probably a tad loose feeling if anything.
    I need to lace them up pretty tight to suit my narrow feet and I'm getting a tiny bit of slippage in the heel when I walk.

    I reckon they're possibly a bit too long - I have a bit under an inch (maybe 6/8ths of an inch or two cms) of room at the heel when I push my foot forward to touch the end of the toe box.

    I plan on wearing these with thick socks, but also thinner ones (in an Australian summer).

    I have pretty narrow feet, so I don't think width is going to be too much of an issue.

    Any advice on whether to stay with the 9.5 or go down to a 9 would be much, much appreciated! Unfortunately trying pairs in a store is not an option for me.

    I would go down to a 9. Nothing`s worse than shoes that doesn`t fit properly. I size down one size to my normal shoesize at RW and I`m pretty happy with it. Walked around in some Gentleman Travellers for 3 months which were a half size too big because of the narrowness of GT`s till I realised my mistake

    I down size half in all my Red Wing boots(regular US10, US9.5 in Red Wing), and i have own a few. The fit is roomy indeed, but nothing an insole can't fix. I down size one full size once and I had to sell that pair. They fitted good at the beginning, but after 3 hours of use the pain was unbearable.
