They do not.

If anyone is a size 10D and looking for brown...today is your lucky day.

 

Epaulet NY has been selling off their 1K's for a couple of months on sale, but looks like they found one last pair and have them listed at $115. I have no reason to believe these are seconds as their description doesn't call them out as such and plus, they're just really good folks. Final sale (but that's the case on anything sale from them)

 

As I type this, I regret it as I want to pick these up as a second pair (I have a 10.5 in rust I wear in the winter with thick socks...could probably fit in these with dress socks)

Anybody have any success with a really good really thin insole for these guys?

Breaking in my boots today.

Well,  it looks like Ill be sending my new 1000's back to Wolverine for a warranty repair/ return. After a few days of wearing them in i started to feel a lump just in front of my heal on my right boot where the seam of the leather upper ran under the sole, it felt like my sock was bunching up. Took it to the cobblers and he advised me to return them because he noticed the seems were far to large to ever be comfortable, and that it was something that shouldn't have gotten past quality control at wolverine. Its a shame because I was really starting to love these boots. Has anyone else had this problem?

how much will these stretch?? I really want to wear mine but they are snug...really snug.

I got them on the STP sale...I think about .5 size too small... willing to trade and I've already passed the return date.

They're not gonna stretch that much. If they're too snug now they will probably always be too snug. They should fit out of the box, or it probably ain't gonna happen. Best to trade them or put them on the marketplace. The STP sale is more trouble than it's worth.

I've had my 1000 miles for about 2 months and they're breaking in nicely. For some reason, I've been particularly hard on them over the last few days and I've scrape up against something with the toe of the right boot. The toe has several scratches that have cut into the leather and in one spot has taken out a small chunk of leather.

I doubt that there's anything to be done as I've cut into the leather, but does anyone know a product or treatment that could help conceal the scrapes. The only thing that comes to mind is shoe polish, but I would rather use some other product as I usually don't wear too many slacks or formal clothes. I don't want to go for either the brushed or spit shined look.

Thanks for the help.

Do a couple coats of boot oil. Should darken it some.

It may just be the lighting, but they do look a bit dry so plenty of boot oil is a must. After the shoe oil you can apply a polish to help even out the colour.

As you mention, there is not a whole lot that can be done with the gouges and concealment is going to be the best option. Think of it as wabi/patina on your work boots.
