if you’ve been a reader of this blog since the beginning, then you know my obsession with red wing boots. i’ve been searching for the right pair and fit for at least 5 years now. i realize there is a lot happening in the world and i should probably find something else to do, but i really really like red wing boots.
last year around this time, i tried my luck on some black (gasp) iron rangers, and what do you know they’ve been the best boots i ever bought. they took no time at all to break in and are now more comfortable than most of my athletic shoes. they were also the only kicks i took with me when i went to paris and london this past summer. i probably logged 5-10 miles a day in these s**t-kickers.
if you’re looking for a good winter boot or just a really awesome year round boot, then give these a try. i would recommend buying two pairs – 1 a half size smaller than your regular shoe size and 1 a whole size smaller. as with all red wings, sizing on these is tricky. good luck.
