Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 237
Styleforum Top Picks
I recently bought a pair of tan 9 1/2 addison boots online and have a ten in the regular wolverine. The part where the tongue is sewn together with the boot is super tight on my feet, leaving imprints after 30 minutes, where on the other pair they are nice an loose. the 10s in the regular are a little long so I went down a half size. ]
Soooo is there any way to fix this, say by stretching or is that gonna be a big problem no matter what ?
Yeah but the difference between the tightness between the 10 and the 9.5 is pretty big. The regular 1000 mile don't push on the top of my foot much at all, where the 9.5 Addison is pushing lots to the top of the foot but the but length is better than the 10. This is where the tongue is stitched to the boot, and I am just unsure of that area stretching due to the stitching there.
I took the laces out of the boot. The spot I am talking about is where you first put the laces at the end of the tongue. Even with out laces and thin socks it is tight. My other pair stretched out but I am wondering how the stitching will stretch. Think I am gonna take it to a cobbler and ask if they can stretch it out, The reason I ask if it will stretch is because they are brand new and unworn, and I got them for $300, so I believe I could easily sell them in Canada for that at least and just buy another pair.
