Ok thanks for explaining really appreciate it.
So the 875s has more toe room as compared to the others am I right? (The space in front of your toes). Mine is about a thumb size.
Isn't it the norm to have a thumb space for all your shoes?
Haha it is, but I'm not too sure if red wing boots is supposed to fit perfectly onto your feet.
No problem. No, but why are you so concerned with the space in front? Mine is about a thumb size too, but my 3140's are slightly more than that. I'm sure the uncle at Suntec will tell you not to care about the looks and go for the fit.

What's important is that the bone at the side of the your feet are at the widest part of the boot. It doesn't matter if the front has more space. I'm sure he told you this, and "don't let your eyes decide for you". Stop letting the size of the boots determine what size you wear. I made that mistake.

Ok thanks for the advise. Let me drop you a private message to explain further in detail about my concerns. Don't think it'd be a good idea to type a whole load of verbal diarrhea here.

I'm pretty sure most of us will recommend Obenauf LP instead, because mink oil tends to darken the leather. However, to each his own. The guys at RW Suntec will recommend mink oil. You can get all these products from the RW shop at Suntec.

Sharing thou most of you would have know abt it.

Thank you for your support for Red Wing shoes.
*
Firstly, Red Wing shoes branding using embossed logo on leather upper does not apply to all Heritage boots models. There are many reasons for this such as nature of leather, eg Roughout (suede) leather boots are unable to have embossed logo on it ; control over production batches etc. *Starting from last December, Red Wing Shoe Company had announced the decision to remove embossed logo on all their Heritage product assortment. This is to make their product as “heritage” as possible, retaining the originality of our history in shoemaking. This is a running change of which production already started since last December. As such, our retail and retailer stores will have mixed stocks with and without logo, depending on the rate they deplete the older stocks with logos.

Hey guys, just wanna ask. Any one here who is wearing an 875 or equivalent. Are your boots completely waterproof, or do water seep into your insole when you step into a puddle.

ok, let the pics do the talking..these boots were bought from queensway 2 weeks ago. Initially the gap was smaller. I read somewhere is this thread that it is ok. But today i realised the gap had opened so much wider.





this is so disappointing..paying so much for this quality. To add on, this is not the only gap on this shoe. It can be found on both shoes, all sides of the soles.
