You can heat them up as well just don't put them in for too long.

When it's sunny and warmer out, you can apply the LP and let it sit in the sun for about 30 mins.

I applied some on my 875s a few weeks ago:

looking for some nice red wings shoes, anyone know where I can get some good deals. pleaes dont' say ebay. I know good things don't usually go on sale so i might as well bite the bullet on a pair of nice shoes.

i looked around for quite a bit for pricing on my 877's, outside of used the cheapest was always the local RW dealer

however, if the online sites are accurate, RW USA has wayyyy more models in stock than Canadian stores

Try the Bay Downtown. Sometimes they have 15%-25% off if you have a the bay card. It's the only place I've seen them for cheaper.

yeah those are pretty nice, a new addition to the sale, not sure if they'll reduce the price further as part of their winter sale because the sales reached the final phase; you may have to bookmark them so you can check to see if they've been reduced further

I'm with you on that. I used to get Aldo shoes and those soles ripped right off on me, every damn one. Ever since then, I went with Ferragamo and never turned back.

1.5 months into my 877's, about 4 oil applications over that time and fairly steady wear, best boots i've ever owned hands down, highly recommend red wings!



they are actually about 4-5 shades darker than they were to begin with now through wear/oiling, pretty sweet

hahah alright, cause if you referred to my cp as aldo shoes i might of cried !

anyways i feel you on the wooden/leather bottoms. The shoes i made for work are like that and wow are they comfy and sturdy!

i used to wear aldo stuff but now i strive for a lot more quality

i love red wings, i'm going to check it out in the states. my gf and i both don't really like the white bottoms of the 877, i'm looking for the 8111, i am going to have to jump and see if i want to invest in it... it ain't cheap.
