Re: Redwing/Danner boot sizes?
I'm a little late to the conversation but I can definitely vouch for the Danners. I'm on my second pair of Pronghorns. These are the old style not the ones with the large rubber covered toe which I don't like. The are light and comfortable. I got about 4 years out of my last pair with a lot of walking on concrete. I expect my new pair will last longer since I don't do much inside any more. I still have the first pair though and don't plan to throw them out.
I wear an 8.5 and the Danner's are true to size. I bought a size 9 this time around and it is a hair bigger just like it should be. I also picked up a pair of the DXT footbeds. Wow, what a difference they make. You won't be disappointed in the quality or comfort. The tread is a little aggressive and makes a better outdoors boot than anything but I have worn them as work boots as well.
