If I don't use the pad it's actually a bit more comfortable. I believe the old design of the pad was just a thinner single piece of leather. The one on mine is two pieces: the top piece being a thinner leather and the bottom piece a thick piece. I fee like it's the thick piece that jams into my traps and shoulders when I wear it.

Most likely just at a Red Wing store. I think Amazon has the wide sizes at times. Keep in mind only some models come in wide widths.
Yeah I just used a blow dryer to soften the LP then used my hands to rub it into the boot. After that I used to blow dryer on the boot to get it to seep into all the areas. I then brushed it down with a horse hair brush. The last step I did was repeat the whole process a second time. If you search through the Wolverine 1K thread a member (Crane's) gives a tutorial which I pretty much followed except he used Sno-Seal instead of LP. I think he also used a rag to apply the...
