Red Wing Shoes
« on: May 19, 2010, 05:28:04 am »


We all know them and Love them... WELL I SURE AS HELL DO!!!

  "In 1905, Charles H. Beckman organizes the Red Wing Shoe Company in the quiet town of Red Wing Minnesota. The first boot sells for $1.75"
  "From a tiny corner shop started in 1905, Red Wing Shoe Company, Inc. has grown into the most respected manufacturer of hard working boots and shoes around the globe. Today, with three facilities and hundreds of craftspeople making thousands of pairs by hand each day, Red Wing Shoe Company, Inc. will continue to provide comfort, quality and durability for the next hundred years."

Few years back , when i was still working at refinery  i used to wear Red Wing work  boots, we were given a pair every 6 month until company starts to cutting down cost .  I do still have few pair brand new size 5 & 6 uk, the "pull on" type. No doubt about it , they are  good working shoes.

aye, coming winter i want some iron rangers too.

Now i have a pair of 875 but i wore down the crepe sole pretty quick. And because im walking on the outside of my feet it starts to become uncomfortable. Anybody have some experience resoling them? in EU?

American Classics (London) advised me that the Iron Ranger sizes up a bit more again than the other boots. I.e.: you could size down a whole 1 size as long as you were not uber wide foot.

Their link if any one wants it: http://www.classicredwingshoes.co.uk/categories/iron-ranger

Just as what Hectic said, be careful if you have wide feet with Red Wing sizing.
They do tend to run narrow (GT, Iron Ranger, Chukka) and need tender love when breaking into.
