SIZING: They run large. My shoe size usually is around 8.5 to 9. Running shoes are typically larger -- up to 9.5. I purchased this boot in an 8.5 and it's too large. I've got very wide feet, and could barely get these on, but after the break in, they are much too big for me.
BREAK- IN: It took a while for the heels to break in enough to be comfortable. The leather is of good quality and stiff, so an extended break in isn't unusual. Part of the issue was most likely due to the shoe being too large.
As a side note, I would suggest getting a longer shoestring as the ones that come with the shoes provide just enough length for the knot.
Redwing shoes are really fantastic, and this shoe looks good and performs well. I've used them to survey a construction site as well as casually wear about town. Just make sure you size them correctly, have patience for the break in, and oil when needed, and they should stick around for many years.
The second thing I like to do to my Red Wings is put a coat or two of spray-on leather protectant to help water resistance and staining of the leather.
The fit is initially a little narrow for me, but this will loosen up over time.
I wish these boots included a pull loop on the back above the heal. They are nearly impossible to put on without totally loosening up the laces and implementing a shoe horn.
Other than the aforementioned shortcomings, you can't beat American made Red Wing boots. If you take care of them, they'll take care of you for many years of use and abuse.
