S.N.S. Classic Exclusively for Brund

To celebrate our 13 years in business we have asked our good friends at S.N.S. Herning to create something special just for Brund’s customers. As you might have noticed we are huge fans of the Fisherman sweater, which we have proudly been selling since the beginning of time. It is just one of the most beautiful, durable and practical pieces of clothing ever produced. Therefore it only made sense for us to reach out to SNS when we wanted to whip up something out of the ordinary.

SNS Herning Fisherman sweater made exclusively for Brund

Dark Army Green Fisherman Sweater

Let it be known from the get-go. This is not a Brund X SNS colabo, where we have ruined a classic just to be able to put our name on it. Not that there is anything wrong with colabs - we are all for progress, but if it ain't broke... Although this version of the classic sweater was made on our request, and only is available at Brund, the Dark Army Green Fisherman is all SNS and has not been altered in any way. Same great quality. Same great fit. Just an all new colour made exclusively for Brund.

Brund is pretty excited about our new SNS sweater :)

So what do you think of the Fisherman in our new colourway? As you can tell, Store Manager Peter is pretty excited about the outcome, that’s for sure! And so are the rest of us :) If you want to get your hands on one of these beauties pop by the store and let Peter tell you all about it. Or get yours online now. Needless to say, supplies are limited so if you want it come get it and help celebrate quality and the great people who produce it. Thank you, S.N.S. Herning!

Red Wing 9875 (Irish Setter Limited Series)

In the postwar years of the last century, Red Wing Shoe Company introduced a 9-inch lace-up boot for sportsmen— bird and deer hunters who spent autumn days in the woods and marshes of North America. The boot, called the Style No. 954, made use of leather tanned with the bark of sequoia trees that gave it a distinctive deep reddish-orange color known as “Oro Russet”. It was so similar to the coat of a certain breed of hunting dog that it was given the name, “Irish Setter” in the 1950 catalog and it quickly became a popular boot.

Sizing

CLOTHING SIZES

For clothing sizing information, please read the description of the given product carefully.

If no sizing information is available, please do not hesitate to ask us before purchasing.

We will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.

Have a sizing question? Let us know.

HOW TO FIND YOUR BOOT SIZE

If you are shopping for a pair of Red Wing shoes or boots, the first thing to consider with regards to sizing is this:

Most Red Wing boots, like the popular Iron Ranger and the Beckman run big. Therefore we recommend sizing down half a size from your sneaker-size if you are purchasing Iron Rangers, Beckmans and most other Red Wing boots. However, the Red Wing chukkas (3140, 3141 etc.) are true to size. Therefore we recommend ordering your sneaker-size if you are purchasing chukkas.

Please read the sizing-description on each style carefully, before ordering.

Size systems

There are many shoe size systems globally, with the US, UK, European and Japanese size systems as the most common ones. The US system also has a special category for athletic shoes.

In Europe, shoe makers are supposed to follow the same shoe-size system. Note however, that sizes might differ between e.g. France and Germany. The sizes also aren't totally standardized, which means that shoes from different manufacturers might have different sizes, although they have the same measurements.

Size chart

Size charts are used to convert between different international shoe size systems. Notice that these size charts are only to be seen as guides meant to help you find your right size. Sizes and size charts may differ notably between different shoe manufacturers and brands. See the Brund shoe/boot size chart here.

Shoe last

In order to build a Goodyear Welted boot (e.g. a Red Wing boot) to an exact size and width, the boot is constructed around a shoe last.

A last is used in shoemaking to give footwear its three-dimensional shape. Resembling the human foot, the last determines toe, heel and girth dimensions for fit, style and function.   

Do notice that there is no such thing as a "normal foot" and therefore not a standard shoe last - and therefore also not a "normal shoe size". Add to that the fact that most people’s right and left feet have different measurements.

Learn about Red Wing lasts and the Anatomy of a Red Wing at www.redwingheritage.com.

Shoe width

Most shoemakers make some of their shoes in multiple widths, from narrow to extra-wide.

US width is measured as A, B, C, D, E, EE with A as the narrowest, EE as the widest and the standard width being D.

English made men’s shoes and boots are generally made in fittings E, F, G and H and these can quite simply be classified as follows:

E=  Narrow
F=  Medium
G=  Wide
H = Extra Wide

Loake uses F or G and Crockett & Jones uses E and G.

The right size

A new pair of e.g. Red Wing Heritage boots should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes.

The full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time, with each wear.

Measuring your feet

Stand up straight on a hard surface with your heel against the wall and a piece of blank paper taped to the floor, flush against the wall beneath your foot.

Have a friend mark the longest part of your foot (referred to as heel-to-toe length) on the paper with a pen, or measure yourself if necessary. Repeat with the other foot, as right and left sizes may be different. Use a ruler to measure the heel-to-toe length you marked for each foot.

View the BRUND shoe/boot size chart here

When using the chart, take note that ”CM” is NOT your heel-to-toe length in centimeter (cm), but the official shoe size (CM) 

Guidelines

If you have a medium or standard foot and use US 9,5 in New Balance Lifestyle, you will probably use US 9 in Red Wing, Thorogood and Chippewa and UK 8,5 in Loake and Crockett & Jones.

I use US 9,5 in New Balance Lifestyle and my right foot measurement is 28,5 centimeters from heel-to-toe. My size in New Balance Performance is US 10,5.

Confused ? – then, please read from ”Size systems” again ;-)
