I always wanted some nice work boots/shoes. Preferably made in the U.S. with Anerican leather. My first pair was the 1907 with a white, crepe sole that I purchased from a Red Wing dealer on Friday and wore to work for four hours the next day. I liked the feel of these boots so much that I returned to the store today and bought a pair of the Iron Ranger boots. Both of the boots are in “Copper Rough & Tough” leather, because they would be more forgiving of light scuffs. I also opted for leather laces as they have more flex for the break in period. Of the two, the Iron Ranger is actually more comfortable right out of the box, believe it or not! I love the fragrance of oiled leather! BTW, I had the Red Wing dealer measure both of my feet. The left foot is a 10.5 US and the right foot is an 11.0 US. I purchased the 10.5 US in the D-width, based upon the the dealer suggestion to go down 1/2 size from the larger foot. I bought my shoes at the end of the work day and I wore Darn Tough full cushion boot socks.
