Please don't crush the toe box. Quite aside from the possibility of damage to the integrity of the boot it makes my puppy dog cry when people do such things. Just wear them as is, once they have a bit on London wabi on them they will look just fine.
I think that is partly the dilemma of these boots. The MSRP and Wolverine's marketing placement is above that of a work boot, but below that of a true dress boot. People's expectations are accordingly across the board
Talking of comfortable boots. 7 year old Blundstones in need of a retread as the soles are now thin and split.
Send them back and ask to be reimbursed for the cost of the Topys !
Maybe I should have said "I treat all my boots like foremans boots", which is pretty much what the Beckman is meant to be.I'd still be returning the 1Ks to Wolverine rather than letting them just sit there. The more people that do that with sub-standard boots, they more they are likely to feature on a bean counters report.
I'd still be tempted to return for a refund, to let the manufacturer know that their product is not meeting consumer expectations.I have a pair of RW Beckmans and for sure they are easier to keep looking presentable than my 1Ks. However, be aware that the Featherstone leather on the Beckmans does graze easily so you'll be spending some time polishing them too. Some people complain that these end up looking dark on certain colours of leather.I treat all my boots as work...
That's what you are meant to use them for.
I know, hence the use of the words 'again' and 'refund'.Why torture yourself, just return for a refund on the basis that you believe them to be defective, sub-standard or whatever as per http://www.wolverine.com/US/en/Returns-Exchanges
Why not return them again for refund or exchange ?
They will likely be just fine for a good few years. Too much neatsfoot oil could overly soften the leather, so you may end up with a flaccid bull penis leather look.
