I followed up on this and stopped by a Redwing store to try on boots. I tried several of the better Redwing slip on styles, but I'm not sure how they are supposed to feel. The foot area felt tight and uncomfortable, but they still slipped on the heal. I thought some slipping should be expected and asked for a larger size but the sales person said I should have no slipping at all, and that the tighter forefoot area was needed to hold the boot tight on my foot. They wanted me to try on a smaller size but there was no way I could get my foot into anything smaller. None of that seemed right since they felt very uncomfortable, so I left. How are these slip on boots supposed to fit/feel? Maybe my foot isn't shaped right for them.
Sorry to hear you couldn’t get fitted. There are some boots that just don’t fit me either. The 1178 is a perfect fit for my foot. They do take some break in time.
