5.0 out of 5 stars Best Boot For the Money, December 9, 2011
This review is from: Red Wing Heritage Men's Six-Inch Moc Toe Lug Boot (Apparel)
All I have to say about these boots are wow... I bought these through J. Crew $168 (25% off currently), only slightly different, black Red Wing labeled eyelets (I think look nicer than the brass ones), and comes with leather shoe strings in addition to rugged ones. This is my first pair of Red Wing boots, owned a number of cheap boots over the years. These by far are better than any boot I have ever owned in every way. Considered a pair of Russell Moccasin's, but decided on these instead. The moccasin like design in these boots can't be beat, I have only owned them three days now, and I'm amazed at how quickly they are breaking in. Have a few spots where they rubbed slightly the first day, second day this was largely gone, on the third day they feel all around great and the leather is super smooth! They do run narrow though, and I have fairly wide feet, (they are only available in one width from J. Crew as well as Amazon), but the leather formed perfectly to my feet. I believe most people recommend going down 1/2 size on Red Wing's, but I bought these in my normal size and have only worn thin dress socks, so the boots form to my feet. Glad I did as they fit about perfectly, and will be quite snug with a thick sock. I have found them to offer great support, much better than I expected, definitely don't need inserts. The boot is beautiful, well constructed, nice color, and if properly maintained, (I plan to use Picard boot oil) I see no reason for these to not last me decades, (with resoling a course).

Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

Hey Jebersol12, I was actually really interested in purchasing the JCrew ones but I'm really not sure which size to get. I wear a size 9.5 in Clarks Desert boots and MacAllisters(which both seem to run a half size large) and pretty much a size 10 in every other shoe. Which size do you suggest I purchase? Do the J.Crew ones fit more true to size? I appreciated your review by the way. Thanks!

I hope to not steer you wrong, but I wear 7 1/2 in Clarks Desert boots and purchased these boots in 7 1/2. The desert boots are slightly big and the Red Wings are about perfect.
