Colors and sizing.

These are great boots. Don't be afraid to return your shoes if they don't fit. Amazon has a painless return policy. You'll have your money refunded within 2-3 days once you drop them off at UPS (if you used a credit card). Also, just as common practice when buying off Amazon, make sure you are aware of who the vendor is. In this case I made sure the vendor was Redwing Heritage. A little note was included with the shoes that said, "inspected personally by a Donna...examined every detail of this shoe, etc". Reassuring me to no doubt.
I went with 10 D first, but had to return them for a wider fit. So, I went with a size 10 2E. Out of the box the width was great, the fit was a bit roomy, not loose, but not quite as snug as I wanted them to be. Simple fix, by putting an insole in the shoe the fit became snug. Vuallah, like a glove and no heel slipping. Just Awesome.
Another thing, about the color selection. I had a hard time deciding between going with brair oil slick, or with a more classic leather color. So, when I found these advertised as "brown" on Amazon, it seemed like a good compromise, although I was curious as to what they'd be because I didn't see "brown" on the official Rewing heritage website. As it turns out it appears to me they are the Briar Oil Slick, and they look great.
Made in the USA, baby!
