i have been wanting a pair of these for awhile & decided to finally bite the bullet on that hefty price tag! they were absolutely worth it. the leather is so soft & luxurious. so pleased!
I bought the 6 inch Chelsea Boot for my wife, who normally wears 7.5 in other boots (Frye, Nisolo, etc.). We ordered size 7 knowing Red Wing runs long, however, we had to exchange them for the 6.5 (thank you Kathleen and Ballad of the Bird Dog for great customer service!) The last of this boot fits a little tight through her wide forefoot and instep, however, it is starting to break in after a couple of weeks.
The boot is American made with great quality leather and a durable Vibram rubber sole.
