It really is such a relief...there were a few days when I was super worried they would not work for me. Wearing them today is better than ever and for the first time I would say comfortable. I think I will replace the insoles sooner than later.

Cool, cool. No rush from me...still have plenty of jeans to wear and not enough time for them.


@Oaktavia I had the 777 on the last batch, deffo 555 this time round!

I was also considering this...I have 555 in my 21oz and love 'em.

ETA is still far off, correct? As in after S/S 22? Just want to get my ducks in a row.

Guess at this point I just need to decide which fit to go with. Been thinking 634, but 888 is a maybe. Any idea yet which cut y'all are rolling out first? One at a time, or in groups?

I'm thinking 777 or 888 for me...

My boots have loosened up since last week. They do not push on my instep/top of foot like they were. I found thin dress socks worn the best with this issue too.

I had to Klarna mine...wouldn't have worked otherwise.

@LewisStonehouse stoked you are looking to get a pair.

Love these shorts...would look great in turqouise too.

If your going to trash talk this is the place to do it. The Bengals win so infrequently it would be silly not to celebrate their fleeting success, as short lived as it may be.   :P

Haha, yeah - for whatever reason I picked the Bengals to follow when I started watching football 16 or so years ago so am quite aware of how hard they are to support..

Somehow it's much less annoying to have a Bengals fan overseas  :D but you can always convert to the Ravens flock.



Awesome dudes, thanks for the insight I appreciate it.

You bet! FWIW my first pair was a 13, but I thought they just felt a tad too big. I went down to a 12 because these were just stock boots — no 12.5 available. The length in the 12 felt fine but I was a little worried at first that I'd fucked up and was stuck with the tightness in the instep, but like I said, they've chilled out and are getting really comfy. I'm gonna try putting the insoles back in after a good while, so that should make em feel even better.

TLDR - I feel your pain and can def say rest easy knowing they get better!

Yes you described my worries exactly. Thanks for this, I feel hugely relieved and I think I'll skip the warm water idea in the video. I was willing to try it but filling my $755 boots with warm water made me nervous.

I've been wearing mine pretty much non stop since Monday. 7.5 hours of work as a teacher the past three days and at home until right before bedtime. Plan on to continue this for the time being. I might try to sell a pair or two of Iron Rangers now becaue I just don't think I'll wear them again at this point.

@popvulture okay wonderful, that is exactly what I was hoping to hear. Which is what I thought would be the case, just wanted a confirmation. I do not think they are the wrong size at all, just high instep slight discomfort. Thanks for the help!!

@mclaincausey I was also thinking this, since they have already stretched a bit in that one area. Loosening them up helped quite a bit too. If I go ahead and fill 'em with water I'll let you all know how it worked out.

But thanks for the insight. I don't have sores or even redness of any kind just a little pressure when wearing. I'm nit picky so anything that isn't perfect I try to resolve.
