Your link is broken but the answer is yes

Brown sharpie (i'm serious) or apply some leather sole edge dressing. I think they are heavily waxed, so the pigment from normal shoe polish won't get soaked in easily.

Got my blacks from STP. At least I just thought it was a little uneven stitching, but it seems the bigger "seconds" part is because the back part of the right shoe is completely skewed to the right and off center. I don't care that much as it's on the back so I'm completely happy to have gotten these for only $135 =D. Really wish my original order of the browns came in though...took them 5 days plus two live chat contacts to tell me it was out of stock -_-. So if anyone has 8.5 browns or tans they don't want, hit me up.

Can't believe I missed this sale.

If anyone has a black in 10 they don't want, let me know.

Are you guys wrapping it around the ankles or using the speed hooks?

lace length?

I'm using these laces:

I just got my 1000 Mile from STP today. Perfect fit and love the brown colour, only has a few minor scuffs and extra glue residue.

Anyway, it is rainy day today, so I am not going to wear them out yet. From reading this thread it seems they need to have Obenauf LP applied to them. I cannot get that product in Australia, so I have just treated them with KIWI Dubbin Neutral. Hope that is okay. Looking forward to wearing them tomorrow.

Just got my Bradford order from STP. They sent Addison's instead (which I already have). Lame! Sending back frown.gif

Hey everyone,

My first time posting here.  Ok, the answer is probably in this thread here someplace but since its over 200 pages I'll just ask.  I just picked up some 1000 mile boots in size 9 and size 9.5.  The 9.5's seem a bit long and there's a lot of room (too much?) in the toe box but otherwise feel great, very little heel slippage which will probably go away over time I think.  The 9's feel kind of tight along the sides but feel about right lengthwise and in the toes, with no heel slippage.  I'm wearing mid weight socks.  I usually wear 9.5 in dress shoes and work boots, size 10.5 - 11 in sneakers depending on brand.  So which do you think I should keep?  Will they stretch?  Is extra room in the toe box normal for most of you?  Thanks.

Got my two pairs of Addisons from STP yesterday. The dark bark/black pair has uneven stitching on the pack of the right boot, nothing to cry over. The tan/black pair is marked "blemish" and the only thing i could see wrong was a small dot of black on the tan section which i was able to wipe off with my thumb. Perfect fit, went down .5 size from my usual boot size

I was able to get 2 of the factory seconds from Sierra trading company. 1 looks great. But my black one has this fault below. Should I just return or see if someone can fix it? Remember price was only around $150 shipped.

Return those.
post #3508 of 6939
Those are bad enough that STP ought to replace them (if they are still available in your size) or might let you apply the super-discount to another similar style (if they're not). They do tend to have excellent customer support. That pair isn't in "seconds" condition, it's fully destroyed.

Yah.

There were no more blacks in my size but they somehow found a Cordovon!!! They are sending it me right now in exchange for this black pair.

I'm sure you know this but it's cordovan colored (ie. it's not shell) LOL
