There are obviously several reviews on these boots and of all the varying opinions, I think the most important thing to note is that measuring your foot on a Brannock device will save yourself a lot of trial and error time. If you don't have a Brannock device (why would you?) here's a link to a printable version that actually works great (https://www.acemarks.com/size-guide). So I measure a 9.5 length and a 2E width. Based upon those measurements and other reviews I actually ordered three different sizes - 9D, 9EE, 8.5EE . I also tried on each boot with a regular cotton crew sock, a midweight merino wool sock and a super thick merino wool sock. For some reference, my foot was swimming in the 9EE and knowing the leather will break in a bit it was a non-starter. As for the 9D, I could get my foot in there with each sock except for the heavy wool - now once in the 9D, my foot fit OK but I just didn't feel like I had the proper toe splay. The 8.5EE was personally perfect. Foot got in pretty easy with each of the three socks and felt like it was hugging the sides of my foot just right. There was a tiny, maybe 1/4 or less heel "slip" but nothing concerning and my toes were perfectly splayed but did not feel like they were sliding side to side like they were in the 9EE. And, I found that my big toe popped up just behind the moc toe stitching on the 8.5EE leaving an appropriate amount of length for the toes. As for the leather, it's fantastic. Feels soft - but not as soft as the Horween leather used on Wolverine 1000 mile boots (FWIW, I wear a 9D for my Wolverine 1000's) though I can't speak to how these Red Wing's will eventually break in but judging from my initial impressions I sense they will be terrific in time. It's all subjective, but I think the boots look even better in person. I initially ordered the Oro Legacy and Briar Oil slick colors and ended up keeping the Oro Legacy. It's not to say the Briar Oil slick was a bad color but for my first Red Wing purchase I just liked the lighter of the leathers. The white bottoms are super comfy and it's a bonus that the boots construction allows the bottoms to be re-soled .... with proper care these boots will last a lifetime I'm sure.

Fit was perfect after sizing one whole size down from other shoes I wear

We bought two pairs before finding the right size. It was only our fault in sizing but I would say they for us they ran one whole size bigger. And the third and final pair we got in were much more light in tan. A little disappointed because the other two pairs that did not fit were just right in color.

Love the style, the minimalist sole, the materials.....but 3 weeks in and these are still uncomfortable to wear. Really tight across the top of the foot. They're hard to break in when I can only stand to wear them for a couple of hours at a time.

Ultimate quality. Initially purchased these for the smart casual look required for work. I’ve enjoyed the Chukka Work Boot so much that I wear them for church, nights out, school, and in my office. The briar leather has just the right tone of brown and red to give all types of attire versatility. Would I buy these again? Oh yeah. Do I recommend? You bet. Should you buy them? Hurry up. You won’t regret it. The Red Wing quality leather exterior is immediately noticeable. They have softened up nicely and marry the leather exterior to the leather footbed and crepe sole, it’s a really nice match. Hands down the best Chukka on the planet. Ordered these 1/2 size smaller than my normal shoe size and boom ?? right on. Thanks Zappos and a red Wing!!

This is a day 1 review, and if you've ever owned Red Wings before, you probably know they take break-in. As typical for red wing, I ordered a full size less than my normal sneaker size and the length is correct. The top of the foot is the stiffest part of these boots for me, and I'm sure it'll take a week or so of pain to make them fit like a glove.. but they're well constructed as you'd expect, the sole is comfortable, the grip is moderate.. and will be a welcome addition for running around town when I'm too lazy to put on my iron rangers. We'll see how they hold up, but have no reason not to expect the best from these!

An absolutely great boot. Before purchase, was concerned about build quality based on previous experience with Red Wing work boots. I was also concerned about the break-in period. I can honestly say that my concerns were for naught. The build quality was great and break-in was relatively easy. You should definitely get a full size smaller than your typical shoe size though. Some reviews recommend 1/2 size smaller, but from my experience, 1 is best and 1.5 might even be better. Don’t take my word for the 1.5 though.

Make no mistake about it, this is one heavy duty boot. And heavy. I can tell it's going to take a while to break these in, can't wait until they are broken in! They run very large, like a full size imo. I had to put a liner in them because 7 is the smallest they make now.

Got these as a gift for my brother. He said they were perfect and he loves them. RIP all his other shoes.

Waited far too long to purchase a true pair of Red Wing Boots. Excellent quality. Great service, first pair was a tad too large, seamless exchange.

You'd be hard-pressed to ever find a better pair of boots than the Iron Rangers. Craftsmanship and quality of materials are all top-notch. These boots can easily last you 10 years if you take care of them. Red Wing updated the sole (much better traction, and maybe a new material?) and somehow these new models are infinitely more comfortable. There is definitely a break-in period, but it seems less intense with the new soles. And I did notice them feeling a 1/2-size to almost a full-size larger. I wear a 10.5 dress shoe and an 11 running shoe, and the size 10 Iron Rangers fit me perfectly. And as always, the Zappos customer service folks are beyond outstanding. I had an issue with the first pair I ordered and Zappos fixed it promptly and with a smile. Why shop anywhere else?

Not like the Redwings I had for decades. Bad fit, leather too stiff. Sad when a stable reliable brand ruins a product.

Great work boot. Perfect for business casual. It took about 4 weeks to break in but once they did... I feel very comfortable working all day in them!

These ran too narrow for me. After multiple attempts to get the toe box widened I ended up having to sell them. Too bad as these boots look incredible!

I owned a pair of these for decades and they were great. The new shoes are much more stiff in every way. I wish they still made them the old way, which was thinner but more comfortable.

First of all, these boots run LARGE. So much in fact, that I sized down and whole size and a half. I wear American-made Red Wing steel toe boots on a daily basis for my job and I love them. I was sized for them in a Red Wing store with their computer gizmo sizing machine thing and I’m a comfortable 9.5 in that work boot with room enough for a very thick merino wool hunting sock when the weather turns cold. With that being said, I went with a size 8 in the boot knowing that I’d never wear much more than a moderately thin dress type sock, and they are perfect. This is a completely uninsulated and unlined boot and appropriate for three seasons; spring, summer and fall. They would do fine in winter if sized appropriately and with a good winter sock, but I have other boots for that. There is no insole in this boot either and the inside feels as hard as concrete. Amazingly enough, even with non-existent arch support, they are still extremely comfortable. The leather on these boots is beautiful and really high-quality, but is as stiff as a diamond in an ice storm. Again, I was amazed that it only took me about 12 hours of wearing and walking in them (completely pain free, I might add) to soften them up and thoroughly break them in. Now, they’re my go-to after work footwear. Oh, and the copper color is fantastic as well, although mine have already started to change (in a good way) and I imagine will only look better as they age. These boots are expensive, but they’re an investment and highly recommended.
