Very good deal, excellent quality, minor flaw (cosmetic)Verified Buyer Reviewed by Gloria from Southern California on Thursday, June 21, 2018Great shoes! I have purchased several pairs of Red Wing boots for my husband from STP; the quality is excellent, and the flaws so minor as to be of no consequence so I thought I would try a pair of shoes for myself. I typically wear size 9.5 (women) in a dressier shoe and 10 (women) in boots or athletic shoes, and often have to chose a wide width; after observing my husband's experience (I ordered a half size down from his normal size) as well as reading a ton of reviews including some from other women, I decided to try a size 8 and I found them to be a bit narrower and quite a bit longer than I expected, but I was afraid 7.5 wouldn't fit at all (I now think I am wrong about that). Initially, these were quite tight across the vamp (I have a high instep which makes buying new shoes a pain, literally). After starting the break-in process, these loosened up quickly (within a week of wearing them several hours/day) which is less than I have experienced breaking in Dr. Martens in the past, and they are becoming comfortable. I now think a 7.5 would have actually been the better choice for this particular style, so that is what I will try next time (these are for work, but I would like a second pair for casual wear). My new rule of thumb will be to go one size down to convert from men's to women's sizing and then one and a half size down to account for the fit of this brand and that will be my starting point. For women with a medium width and normal arches and instep, I think the best starting point would be to go down two sizes to convert from men's to women's sizing and then one size down. I do think there is some variation in the fit among the different styles (apparently due to being made on different lasts) as sometimes a 7.5 seems about right (RW Blacksmith) whereas other times an 8 is way too large (RW Rover--these fit my husband) or almost too small (RW 8133--I was barely able to get my foot into these...a 7.5 would never have worked). It is hard to buy footwear online, but at least they can be easily exchanged. I hate to go through the hassle, but luckily for me (unluckily for my wallet) I have several family members who are only too happy to take any mistakes in ordering off of my hands! The only flaw I was able to find was a splotchy area of leather where the color appeared to be muddled (as if a painting had been smudged while still wet) and it doesn't affect the integrity of the leather or the quality of the shoe at all and since the shoes are a matte black, it is not at all obvious.
Great shoeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Nathan from Kentucky on Tuesday, February 13, 2018Another great pair of shoes from red wing and Sierra trading post. As usual I can't tell what made these seconds but I'm happy to save the cash. I really like having a business casual shoe that's constructed like a boot. And just like the boots these run big so I went a size down and they fit perfect.
