Just got these in a 9..
They are simply beautiful!
Is it normal to smell them like a crazed maniac? And be to afraid to try them on?

Exactly!!!! So close yet...it's like blue-balls with boots :)

I'll just have to be patient for 3-4 months. They are worth it.

Arrrrrrrrrgh! They are 1/2 size too big!!!!!!!  >:(

Just ordered a pair in 9.5. Now I have to play the painful waiting game. I suck at that game...but almost always win in the end :)
Oh noes! Am sure now you've had them in your hands you realize how amazing they are and will want another pair in your size. The joy of the hunt.

I never bought anything from ironheart.co.uk before. It also shows "endangered," so I wasn't sure as to the relationship between an endangered product and the possibility of future restocks.

It wasn't my intention to jump to sudden conclusions, but thank you for your clarification. I have filled out the restock form. Really looking forward to these boots!

Cheers

Emptiness, no worries, the difference between endangered and extinct is pretty difficult to get until you've been through it a few times.

Typically, but not always (because we sometimes forget), if a product has this:

» Your size not showing? Please click here to request an email when we get a restock

You are OK.

The reason that this product says endangered, is that I may get bored of doing it, or decide I want to change it, then it will die.

As a general point, if I am not sure about the longevity of a product, I prefer to have an item showing as endangered

Thanks for explaining everything to me. Talked to Giles over email to put in the preorder.

Hopefully soon as well I can use the "Iron Heart Starter Kit" option for 634S-B and 526Jod as well.

Hi Giles,

A couple of questions for you.

What kind of toe do the service boots use?  Did you spec an unstructured, partially structured, or fully structured toe?

Also, could you give some sizing advice?  I already have a pair of Viberg Contractor 151X boots with a steel toe in 11E.  I believe these boots use the same last as the Smokejumpers you sell.  How does the sizing of the Smokejumper compare to the 310 last of the Service boot?  If I'm an 11 in one, would I get an 11 in the other?

Thanks!

Chris.

I've got the same 9D in these boots and the smokejumper, both fit well, I find the service boot to be a little roomier in the toe box, not a lot, but just a touch longer and wider!

It's a bump toe, so I assume fully structured

How does the sizing of the Smokejumper compare to the 310 last of the Service boot?  I
I wear exactly the same size in both
