Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 133

post #1981 of 6601
The difference is in the stitching up top. I don't see that on any of the boots on the site.

There appears to be some model numbers out there that may not be for sale on the wolverine site and is a dealer only thing. Some of our other vendors do this too.

I plan on my marriage lasting a while longer.

I wonder what the stats would reveal? what lasts longer, the average marriage or a pair of Wolverine 1k's?
post #1983 of 6601
Hmmm, since the typical marriage lasts about 8 years in the US I'll bet on the 1Ks. I've already said that I can see these boots lasting more than 10 years easily so....

If you think about it that's pretty pathetic thing to say.

Before anyone asks me if it's actually due to my feet being different sizes (they are), the left boot does measure about a 1/8 inch shorter in length. I believe that's about equal to what's associated with a half size difference.
I will be exchanging these boots, but since I don't have any Wolverine retail stores nearby, I can't try on different pairs to figure out my correct size. The boots I have now are a size 9.5. The little toes on my left foot do push into the outside of the boot when I take a step (in mid-weight socks, like those Costco wool blend ones). I'm not sure if my smaller left boot or my larger right boot is indicative of a true 9.5 size. If it turns out that's it's the smaller left boot, I'll size up.
Here's where I need help. If anyone has the 1K boots in a size 9.5 or 10, could you provide length measurements (rather than the footprint, measuring with the measuring tape flush with the sole will be easier for me)? This will help me out a lot, hopefully requiring me to go through one successful exchange instead of potentially two. Thanks.

My 9.5 size boot measured 1 foot 2/16 inches and both were just about identical.  I hope this helps.

I appreciate the help, Remeny. Looks like that's the same size as my shorter left boot. If anyone has a size 10 pair of boots, could you provide measurements for the boots as well? I'd like to know the difference between the two sizes. Thanks.

My 10's are 12 9/16".

my apologies for the sizing question but if i wear size 8D in alden barrie/trubalance and size 7.5 in Red wings, which would be the size to get in the 1K?
post #1987 of 6601

Same as your Red Wings IME YRMV.

The captoe boots on the top row appear to also have 360 degree storm welts as well. I like the plain captoe more than the perforated toes on the 744. I prefer speed hooks though.

Well, if the wife gets the boots in the divorce settlement does it really matter?

X2. The full-eyelets on my Beckman's is really aggravating.

Thanks haiglarsen. Wow, so the difference between the 9.5 and 10 is 7/16 of an inch. I thought half sizes differed by about 1/6 of an inch. Now I'm thinking that it might still be safer to go with a 9.5 and hope for a little stretch than to move up to a size 10. That pretty much guarantees having to double sock it all the time.

I switched over to leather laces from the stock waxed laces for the reason that they loosen up easily when I taje the boots off.

Still don't own a pair but my girlfriend is loving hers. Was polishing some shoes yesterday and I hit hers up with some shoe cream to minimize a scratch from the dog.

May eventually KOP after another pair of boots dies.
