    Definitely. They're very unique! Killer dress boots

    Actually, those would look killer dressy or casual, it doesn't matter

    dddrees, I have come to the conclusion you must have very fine tastes and a brilliant shoe cabinet. :cool:

    Planning to get my first pair of good boots. Don't really have an idea about how to find the perfect size for me. Does it have to be a tight fit or should I have some allowance in it?

    When it comes to Ready To Wear generally speaking you won't get a perfect fit and no tight fitting is not generally the best even though leather and insole will give a bit as you break them in. If it's your first time it's generally very helpful to go somewhere where a good and helpful SA can assist you with a good fit with a decent size range and more than a couple different Lasts to see which ones might fit your foot best.

    They certainly have Redwing stores where you can try some of their boots on. Of course some of the stores won't carry some of their better boots however. But It's always best if your able to try them on first before purchasing.

    Yeah, I keep on passing by some Redwing outlets but they don't seem to be carrying some of the better boots. Where do you think I can find one that sells the good kind? Online perhaps?

    I would stop in one of them next time and see if they couldn't order one for you. In fact just because they don't carry the specific boot your looking for doesn't mean they don't carry another boot that uses the same Last. If they can order one for you they could probably order a few sizes so that you could try a few on. Anyway give them a call or stop by and ask. Who knows, the worst they could do would be to say no.

    Bad news is there aren't any Redwing stores from where I am from. lol. So I have to go abroad to get them. Ordering isnt an option. I was thinking maybe try and find out what my size is and order online?

    Ah, well then you will need to establish what your brannock size is. Have you done this yet?
