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 ;-)

Highly-compressible, ultralight insulated jacket.

 

Description

With an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio, the Filson Ultra-light jacket can be worn as an outer layer, or midlayer under a shell. Made with ultralight PrimaLoft® Gold 60-gram insulation that retains warmth even when wet, and a durable, 1.5-oz. ripstop shell. Features an interior zippered pocket and moleskin-lined handwarmer pockets.Warmth without weight, wet or dry–a perpetual challenge for outdoor clothing. Not only does our Ultralight Jacket solve this conundrum, it makes one wonder how it was ever a challenge to start with. Windproof, warm, breathable and compressible, you’ll notice it only by the sheer versatility and comfort it delivers.

The shell, built with 1.5-oz. Cordura® ripstop nylon, weighs next to nothing and allows the jacket to be packed into its own pocket for easy stowage. For added protection from weather and wear, Filson added an additional reinforcing layer over the shoulders. The Ultralights are insulated with PrimaLoft® Gold, which closely mimics the packability and softness of goose down better than any synthetic insulation available. PrimaLoft Gold’s most impressive performance attribute, however, is that it retains 98% of its insulating ability when wet.

 Filson thought of everything when they engineered our Ultralight Jacket. To ensure a comfortable fit, elastic binding on the hem and cuffs keep the wind out, and the front coil-zipper closure is equipped with a zipper garage to prevent neck pinching. The collar is lined with soft, warm 100% cotton Moleskin, so there’s never the feeling of cold nylon against your neck. Zippered side entry pockets secure valuables and are lined with cotton Moleskin to warm your hands. The interior zippered pocket keeps your valuables secure, just in case you get upended in a snowball fight.

With 60g insulation, this Ultralight Jacket is ideal for active use without overheating, light enough to layer underneath a rain shell, and packs small enough to go with you on any adventure.
