HOW TO FIND YOUR BOOT SIZE
There is no “normal size”, because there are no “normal feet”. Feet in general are either narrow or wide and are all three-dimensional. Shoes, however, are normally produced only in different lengths, because consumers nowadays demand many colorways and designs, rather than varying fits.
In the 1960’s many shoemakers produced a far smaller number of shoes and then produced them in several widths (example: B, D, E, EE etc). Note: Width is not to be confused with a slimmer shoe silhouette.
Do notice that US producers convert US sizes to EU sizes differently, so it can be a help to focus on CM (centimeters) or USA (US).
Sneakers often have a slimmer silhouette than boots, so many will go down half a size from their sneaker size to their boot size.
Narrow and normal width (D):
All boots, shoes and sneakers.
Wide width (EE):
Red Wing 8111EE or 875EE and all Danner boots, as they are all in width EE.

The Classic 6" Work Moc Toe, 8863, is identical to the iconic 875, but this is the oiled Roughout leather variant "Slate Muleskinner" also from Red Wing's tannery, S.B.Foot.
This variant was released in 2021.
Red Wing’s Classic Work boots were designed and built to withstand the daily rigors of the work day on the farm and in the factory. The lightweight crepe sole featured a minimal tread design to reduce the mud that would cling to a farmer’s boots but still provide the underfoot comfort the work day required. Red Wing would brand the crepe sole as the Traction Tred sole. These classic boots featured a moc toe design. The name came from the word moccasin, the Algonquian Indian word for shoe. This combination of the u-shaped moc toe leather upper and the white crepe sole would become the iconic boot style for the Red Wing brand. It is one of the oldest Red Wing styles and a best-seller.
Care: Mink Oil, (Leather Cleaner)
Red Wing Shoes are listed in US sizes. The width of the 8863 is D and it is made using last no. 23. As they run a bit big, we recommend sizing down half a size from your sneaker-size.
