red wing 8131

i realize i have a bit of a red wing obsession.  i keep changing my mind on which ones i want.  i’ve purchased boots and returned them a couple of times now (875, chukka, 9016, 877).  i’ve finally settled on the 8131s.  i love them.  when i pulled them out of the box i noticed they were a little redder than i would have liked but figured the red would brown after a coat of sno-seal and some wear.  they feel heavier than the 875s and the leather feels tougher which is why i decided to go with these.  other than that there are not too many difference between these and the 875s.  they’re made on the same last (23) that most of their moc toe boots are made on.  i sized down a 1/2 and have more than enough room.  i’m looking forward to wearing these for the next couple of years.

    How did the sno seal work out? I’m considering doing the same thing.

      two thumbs up on the sno seal. i’ve winterized a couple pairs of boots with it.
