    And, i know i’m being difficult, but i’m just not interested in ordering from Japan or Europe. Too much hassle if they don’t fit. Uk prob but prefer a brand with US distribution. Also, like i said, need a 30” true waist. Several brands list a 30” that is 31.5”. Also at least a mid rise...

    Anyone know the current wait time on Role Clubs?

    I like my Wesco’s, but still toy with the idea of something sleeker (hard to find in EEE!). Brian might be my best option on that front.

    The instep strap of my Clinch is too thick, especially at buckle postion, so I decide to do something ...

    Cut off the strap and reduce the thickness of leather

    It looks a bit better now ^^

    Then I decide to do something for the boot color ...

    Final product looks nice. Really surprised to hear there is a flaw in the strap design considering the price.

    This is as far as I know the only model in steerhide. First came out in 2008 according to the model number. I have no idea if it was the only batch or if they offer them for more than one season.

    Interesting. Noticed they don’t have the toe tracks either.

    Hello everyone, I’m in the market for a pair of red wing 8268 but i kinda hesitate on which size to get. On the paper I’m an 8D (red wing measuring chart), i own a pair of IR in 7 1/2 which are kinda perfect with a little insole and a pair of 877 in 7 which took a little more time to get accustomed to but are quite ok after a few weeks of daily use. I have never had pull on boots except for a pair of Frye roper boots in size 9D which are quite ok with an insole too. How would you describe the fit of a red wing engineer and in particular the 8268 if anyone own a pair ?
    Thanks

    I have a pair
    They are 9.5 and fit proper
    My iron rangers are 9 and fit proper
    Rest of my redwings are 9.5 and have a touch of room.
    Confusing but if you take a 7.5 with an insole for ir I’d go that route.
