Beautiful Works of Art and Craftsmanship!!

I bought the Blacksmith (briar slick) boots just last month and absolutely loved them. I'm now addicted to Red Wings boots. So when I saw the Iron Rangers on sale and in my size I couldn't say "no".

Sizing: I'm a 9 to a 9.5 and went with 9 in the blacksmiths so I decided to pick one more size down to an 8.5 for the Iron Rangers. The fit is perfect and now know the 9's are just a tad too big. So I have some insoles which solve that problem.

Color/appearance: Works of art and craftsmanship! These boots are a thing of beauty. Never gotten so many compliments before. Granted I was sent the wrong style/color so I will say "Yay!" I received the Rough and Tough Copper 8085 Boots. I'm no complaining, they are magnificent.

Break-in: Working on breaking these in. They are bit stiff and require some usage to make them perfect but that goes with good quality boots.

Defects: So the one downside to overalll great looking boots is the fit of one boot. I noticed the right boot a tighter than it should be. Maybe someone got a little over enthusiastic when sewing the boot together, idk. All I know is one boot is tight and the other is perfect. I suspect the tight boot will eventually break in and be a little more supple over time. So for now I see it as a break-in period that time will fix.

Outstanding boots 9/10 would buy them again. 9 because one boot is tight.
