Red Wing Boots Size Guide



When buying a pair of Red Wing boots you’re looking at a real lifetime investment, so we want to make sure that you get the perfect size to keep your feet comfortable all day long.

Like many brands of footwear, each pair and style of Red Wing have their own quirks and differences when it comes to sizing, so even if you’re looking at buying a second pair for your wardrobe, you should always treat each purchase separately. Don’t worry if you end up with a size that isn’t quite right for you, because at Cloggs we offer a free returns service, and will help you get a replacement pair in no time!

Red Wing styles tend to vary between running true to size and slightly large, so you may want to think about buying a size lower than you would with trainers, particularly if you find that your foot size tends to vary between different brands.

Once you receive your boots there are a few things you should be looking for when aiming to get the perfect fit. Your toes need to have some room to move and breathe, like most shoes; they should not be squished right up against the front of the shoe. Nevertheless, your Red Wing boots should sit flush to the sides of your feet. It’s quite the catch 22 - you want to get the smallest size boot while still maintaining that space around the toes. Thankfully, Red Wing’s tend to have quite roomy toe boxes. Finally you should test if the boots bend in all the right places, as bending in the wrong places can cause discomfort.

As they have been made from extremely high quality leather (from Red Wing’s own tannery), it’s perfectly normal to find the boots a little stiff to begin with. Bear in mind when you’re testing fit that the leather will soften and also stretch a little as you break them in. More information on breaking boots in can be found here.
