I went with my Indy boot size and they worked just perfect.

 

1/2 size down from my normal shoe size.

I can jack it up, put on big beefy tires (or a vibram half sole) and it would work just fine. That doesn't make it the right tool for someone who off-roads every weekend or logs for a living. Nor is the 1K the most obvious choice (or even the best choice) for a laborer's work boot. If you want to add vibram soles to your leather soled boots and wear them hiking...great! It doesn't make them a hiking boot. They are clearly a great choice for you and your needs.

 

The designers recreated a fantastic design from 100+ yrs ago. That's why I bought them and why most people buy them. That's also to whom Wolverine markets these boots. They have many other great work boots (without leather soles) for folks who need work boots.

Well said.

I just got an original 1000 mile boots from an online store in Japan, and I noticed that backstay on the right foot is placed incorrectly.
I asked them to exchange new pair or refund me, but it was refused becuse it is quite normal for US products, they say.
I posted pictures of my boots, anyone advise me it is normal or defective.

That is not normal.  If you want confirmation, call the customer service number.  They will put you in contact with the lady that handles 1000 mile stuff and she will probably have you email her those pics.  I don't know if that will be enough to convince the store to exchange them, but if nothing else, I think Wolverine would replace them.

 

Here is the number:

I would also say that this is not normal.

Hopefully, the online store used for the purchase got these through official channels.The wolverine website gives the contact info for the Japanese distributor in Tokyo -

I echo the above comments. I wouldn't accept that issue with any pair of shoes or boots that I would purchase. I would think a store manager or if necessary Wolverine would correct this issue for you.

I think the online store is importing from US directly.

Official distributor would have nothing to do with this.

Thank you guys.

I sent email to Wolverine US customer service with some pictures.

I will call them if they don't reply me in couple of days.

I use one on mine and haven't had a problem. Shoe salesman recommended them, and offered an Alden brand. They have to be made of cedar.

Cranes - do you still have any 9.5's in stock? Looking to pick up a pair in brown this week.
