is it normal to only have half the insole like i have here? i just received my pair from STP this week
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.
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.
