I just got a pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers in 8.5 and they are a little snug on the sides but they will stretch with wear. I'm mentioning that because I've heard that w1k fit almost the same as Iron Rangers so I'll probably end up buying the 8.5. I live in Los Angeles so I will wear them with thin black socks most of the time so they should fit fine after they're broken in. 

 

sorry to mention that 9,5 is abit loose, and 9 is a perfect fit,not to loose nor tight, my actual size is 27,5cm from heel to toe,

 

so anyone here suggest i must take 8 or 8,5? because there is no retailer store for wolverine i my country and i cant do fitting, so i will buy it online.

Hello !

My first post here... From France

I've read almost all this thread, for a few weeks now, and ordered one pair at Crane's last week. (hope size will be ok !)

But one question (can't find any response) :

Is it really a good idea to put sno-seal or obenauf on it (can find sno-seal in france, obenauf no) ? It will be my main pair of shoes, no hiking or trekking but my work -musician- make me travel, always differents weather, some small rambling... 

Does it worth to waterproof them more than they are originally ?

 

Thank you !

Thank you !

Most in this thread are going to consent that to get the most out of your boots you should oil them and waterproof them as well. You should check amazon for obes oil and leather preserver. That's what I did. However, supply may be different since I am in the states.

ok thank you.

Anyway oil is minimum, I agree.

Any recommendations to help the problem? I tried cleaning them up with some Lexol cleaner. Should I apply a ton of layers of oil to that area?

This is exactly what I have going on, but much worse, on my black pair. Any idea what is causing some of us to get this kind of wear? The only thing I can think of is that perhaps too much oil softening up the leather plus vigorous water brushing might be causing it. Any thoughts Crane? It doesn't overly bother me on the blacks, but I am thinking about picking up a pair of browns and I don't want to repeat the same mistakes...

Would this bother you (the distance between the hooks)?

Salut Dada,

I am also from France and I ordered my pair from Crane's too.
You can order some Obenauf LP on the official web site. It is quite expensive regarding the shipping fees but still affordable. That's what I did myself. I also bought some Saphir Greasy Cream for a more weekly treatment.

Enjoy your boots!
post #3068 of 6464

yep merci !

But I really wonder if i really need obenauf or other waterproofing...

Hi All,

 

This is a re-post from the 744 thread...

 

The Wolverine 744's are my first pair of shell boots.  The fit is perfect, but the boots "sqeak" when I walk in them.  Is this normal for this type of boot, and more importantly, will the "squeaking" work its way out?

 

Thanks.

 

John

Please don't double post/cross post. You can wait like everyone else asking a ridiculous question. There boots are almost 100% leather, I haven't ever heard of them doing this but they all break in differently.

If you are such a stickler for forum rules and regulations, I expected that you would have reviewed your reply for proper grammar/English before submitting. 

 

This forum has guided me well on several purchases (thanks to "real" senior members), so I thought I would post in both places to maximize the number of views.

So much so that I would probably break out a pair of pliers or a screwdriver and widen them

It is even worse on mines and I don't care at all.
