JEANS SIZING

Measure and compare, before purchase. Below here, you can see how we measure our jeans.

Measure your jeans like we do.

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 well known Iron Rangers and Moc Toes run a bit ¨big¨. Therefore we recommend sizing down half a size from your sneaker-size. 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. The standard and most common width used in Europe is D.

 

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.

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

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

Description

When you need to bail water out of the drift boat, or even rafting down a class-4 rapid, you’ll be glad to have the Dry Backpack securely strapped in. Engineered for straight-forward waterproof protection, it comfortably carries gear and keeps it dry, no matter how wet the conditions get.

Built with tough 840-denier nylon tarpaulin fabric coated with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), water simply cannot penetrate it. The advantages of using a nylon fabric with this coating rather than polyester or canvas are lightness of weight, flexibility and abrasion resistance. The highly-flexible TPU coating is resistant to ultraviolet light and chemicals, ensuring durability and longevity without breakdown from hard use. The seams are radio-frequency (RF) welded, a cement-free process that permanently fuses the fabric layers together, assuring flexible integrity without fail. All webbing and padding is securely stitched to an additional layer of the waterproof fabric, which is then RF-welded to the bag’s body. This is the same construction as used in the manufacture of white-water rafting gear, where equipment failure could have fatal consequences.

Not only is the Dry Backpack built to industrial standards, it’s thoughtfully designed in our Seattle headquarters for comfort and maximum functionality. The breathable back panel is padded with high-density EVA foam for carrying comfort, and the adjustable, padded shoulder straps are anatomically-curved to match the shape of your body. Filson added D-rings to the shoulder straps for convenient attachment of a GPS, whistles or other gear that requires instant access on the trail. With a sternum strap that’s adjustable for position and width, the load will be secure with no concern about straps slipping off your shoulders. The top closure is a reliable and time-proven roll-top design. With the top rolled down three turns and snugly buckled with the side-cinch straps, water cannot enter the bag. This closure design also affords the ability to compress the bag for varying load sizes. For added convenience, the front sports a zippered expandable-mesh pocket and the interior a mesh zipper-security pocket.

The Filson Dry Backpack – fully-waterproof protection and load-carrying comfort that’s engineered for the wettest conditions, for the long haul.
