The consensus here was that it is a normal characteristic of Chromexcel and not a problem or unusual in any way, so I never thought to contact Wolverine about it.

The same thing happened with my right boot.  It does get annoying to look at.

A couple of days ago I got my replacement pair.... unfortunately this time one boot has a superficial 1" scratch right through the polish on the rear shank to where you can see the raw leather.  Again not a huge deal that new black polish couldn't fix.  But then on the other boot, there is another deep 1" gouge by the instep ankle.  This was clearly dyed and polished over.  So someone in Quality Control had to have noticed this and let it go through.

 

So my question is, am I being to picky?  I know there will always be some flaws for handmade boots, but I guess at $340 retail.... I had been hoping for better quality.  Again the store is going to ship me a warranty replacement.... but I am beginning to think "3 strikes and your out!"  I like the boots and they are a great alternative to a pair of Alden 403s that I wear.  But I am getting a little frustrated.  Anyhow, hopefully I'll finally get a solid pair...

 

All,

 

I just wanted to follow up and let people know that it looks like I have a brand new SOLID pair 1000 Mile Boots.  They arrived a couple of days ago and tonight I'll be treating them with Obenauf's leather preservative.  I did get my original boots, the 2nd replacement boots, and my most recent pair from Crane's Country Store.  They were AWESOME to work with and went the extra distance to make sure everything was set.  They emailed me shipping labels etc., took care of EVERYTHING.  

 

I think in the end, I just had some bad luck with the new boots that I had gotten.  In any case, with summer here in Tahoe I probably won't be wearing that much until the Fall.... but I'll be set for then!

Quick question

The leather insole seems to be glued in my shoe with some cotton-ish stuff.

I am adding a new pair of rubber insoles to by boots (as they were not as snug as I like)

 

Can I remove the orignal insole? What is that cotton-ish stuff?

Should I be putting new insole on top of the old one? or should i stack both? (Both ways feel fine)

Wolverine Addison seconds for $148 at Sierra

Good selection of sizes left, Brown, Tan, Black. Today's bets code seems to be STFD6113 bringing it down to $148+tax. Use the apps (at least iOS) to get free shipping. Total to New York was $160, which is a steal for these. Don't need them, but I've been wanting tan Addisons forever, so I decided to pull the trigger.

EDIT: Bigger deal, they just put up the plain toe 1000 miles as well as the Sophia 12" 1000 miles (for women). Don't need the plain toes, but copped the brown Sophia's for my GF. Hell of a day for Wolverines.

I'd say stick with Barrie. I go 7E / 7.5D with Barrie and have a 7.5D with my 1Ks

I already own the brown and cordovan plain toe, and I was choosing between the Red Wing Beckman in chestnut or another pair of 1000 mile boot in tan. With this deal, I'm in for another pair of 1000 mile boot!

So again: I'm a 10,5 in all Redwings, a 10,5 in my Trickers Stow, 10E in Indy Boots (Truebalance) and a 10 in the 1Ks.

My size in Claks DBs is 11,5, Adidas a 11,5 and so on.

So I can say I had to size down half a size more than in all my other boots.
