I get all my boot work done at a place called 5th Avenue Shoe Repair up here in Alaska, and the half sole on the 1K only cost me $24.95 so I couln't resist.

Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 130post #1936 of 770510/29/12 at 9:24ampost #1937 of 770510/29/12 at 11:34amCan anyone comment on how much these will give in the toebox? As it is, the length is perfect, but my pinky toe presses against the edge of the boot. They are by no means uncomfortable - I had just planned to wear them with thicker socks and perhaps an insole when the weather gets colder.post #1938 of 770510/29/12 at 12:51pmpost #1939 of 770510/29/12 at 4:56pmQuote:post #1940 of 770510/29/12 at 5:11pmpost #1941 of 770510/29/12 at 7:46pmpost #1942 of 770510/29/12 at 9:42pmpost #1943 of 770510/29/12 at 9:47pm
I know what I'm about to say here can be looked upon as quite blasphemous amongst the purest at heart, but none the less has anybody ever try to dye 1000 mile boots? I say this because I recently purchased some of those two-tone Addisons, and well the two colors are starting to drive me nuts. The shoe is just a little to busy for me. Anyway I was thinking of having the tan dyed to match the brown, or just have them dyed black entirely. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.post #1944 of 770510/29/12 at 9:50pm

Been searching for the Crane method, anybody got a link to where it can be found?post #1947 of 770510/30/12 at 4:44am
1. Coat shoe (including where upper meets sole) with Obenauf's LP.
2. Blowdry/let stand until dry
On another note, been looking for a decent pair of beater boots that weren't the ubiquitous Red Wings, finally scooped these up for ~300 at TSM a few weeks ago. I was a little worried about the bulbous toe box, but they're less pronounced in real life. Very happy with the purchase and after seeing all of these pictures, definitely going to see what I can do about some Vibram Commando half soles in the near future.post #1948 of 770510/30/12 at 5:36ampost #1949 of 770510/30/12 at 7:58amQuote:Originally Posted by jarude

I'm curious about this as well.post #1950 of 770510/30/12 at 9:49amQuote:
Buy them; I'm more pleased with them now than when I got them. FWIW I'm a 9.5 in most things and I got an 8.5 and they are bang-on.
I have thicker socks in them today and if anything, they're more comfortable. I don't know how it'll feel when I have an insole in there, but I think that'll more be an issue with my feet pressing against the top of the toebox as opposed to the side. I've worn them for four full days and they've given enough to be quite comfortable now.
Obenaufs combo pack is in the mail. Is it worth giving the boots a liberal coating in the leather oil and let them stand for a day or so before I do the Crane method with LP?
