    Cheers, guys!
    The colour is dark green (more like British racing green!). It's such an unusual colour for RW boots,
    but you would have gone for them if they'd been 36.00 GBP (about 54.00 Euro), wouldn't you? ;)

    Cheers, Dave!
    I was gobsmacked when I realised the RRP of these were 185.00 quid in the UK! :shock: :shock: :shock:

    But to tell you the truth, I still want suede version of RW's engineer boots, really. ;)

    You always seem to find good deals on the bay Naoto.

    Those engineer boots in suede look lovely btw., wouldn't mind a pair of those myself!

    Hey M!ch!
    I think the trick is, my size (UK7. 40 or 41 Euro) doesn't seem so in demand in the UK, so I have greater chances to get shoes cheaper at eBay.
    Recently I bought some pairs of sneakers or boots - white Adidas Italia (16.00 GBP), yellow leather Merrell sneakers (- which you can see me wearing in the fitguide at DJ-501XX - 10.50 GBP) and these RW boots (36.00 GBP), and two pairs of dead-stock US-made Converse CT (yellow and camo - 10.00 GBP each).....

    I've been on both the U.S. site and European. Is it possible getting ones from the European retailers shipped to Canada? Do Canadian retailers carry styles that are on the European site but are not on the US site?

    When I go back to Canada I want to buy a pair of pecos or 875's maybe. There are so many nice styles on the European site that I like in their Heritage section.

    I think there are more choices in Japan than in Europe, and lot cheaper unless you buy a pair of 875 in the US or Canada. :)

    ok maybe I asked this before somewhere, but...
    does anyone have a clue on the sizing for the RW lineman model? is it the same as the classic 875, or?

    I really want to get a pair but, all I have as a reference are my RW clapton classics, those are a US12D and I think they are a size or half a size to big...
    I wear a US12 in SB dunks and most other sneakers and my foot is 28.5cm long when I measure it, I do wear supportive insoles for my flatfeet tho, that accounts for the US12, otherwise I would be fine with a 11 or 11.5 depending on the shoe...

    They are starting to get a nice worn in look Edmond.
    Are those the original laces or did you replace them?
    Im not a big fan of the cherry red colour tbh.

    Hey Dave, how'r you doing?
    Thanks for the compliment, they are absolutely great working boots.. sooo comfy!
    I was a little worried about the indigo staining at first, it turns them black at the spots where the jeans touches them, but they are just shoes after all, it gives them character.

    btw, M!ch, sure the ALD/RW combo can be beaten, Denime/RW, denimjunkie/RW, samurai/RW... ;-):mrgreen:

    What do you guys think about wearing your jeans inside your RW? I like to wear my jeans inside the RW, but people say it looks better when the jeans are over the boot. In my opinion that looks too much like, for example, timberlands, which in my opinion, is no worthy comparison.
