Trying to decide between my first pair of these, I can't decide if I want standard brown, rust or cordovan. Somebody want to sway me in any direction?

I've decided to sell my boots since they are slightly too big and I can't get used to it. They went through 2 winters in the Czech Republic (tough ones), and are still in very good condition/shape.
Only the sole is to be replaced. Being in the CZ I would preferably sell them to someone living within the UE.
Please let me know or send me a private message if you are interested. Size is a 9,5.post #3772 of 77059/3/13 at 11:59ampost #3773 of 77059/3/13 at 12:09pmpost #3774 of 77059/3/13 at 3:30pmpost #3775 of 77059/3/13 at 4:18pmpost #3776 of 77059/4/13 at 10:19am
Anyone have any good advice for cleaning and general maintenance of brown 1k's? Cleaned my boots the other day and then applied a coat of Red Wing Shoe Cream (Neutral) and wiped off the excess and buffed with a horse hair brush. Walking around today, the first wear since the cleaning and where the boot creases there is a pastie white film. Did I just not buff the shoe enough after cleaning our is this not a good product for conditioning these boots? Live in Canada and haven't found a retailer for Venetian shoe cream yet, but want to condition my boots.post #3777 of 77059/4/13 at 11:50amQuote:Originally Posted by g0d5hand

Montana Pitch Blend (using the hair dryer method) worked well for my brown 1K's...post #3778 of 77059/4/13 at 6:08pm
I did similar thing the night before yesterday before going to sleep. Apparently I did not wait for the wax to fully dry so it form the white pasties the following day. Just buff it off with some brush or cloth. I applied Chamberlain's Leather milk No. 3 for deep conditioning and waterproofing. And then applied Kiwi neutral colour carnauba wax for the shine which left the white pasties the next day. I just buff it off with a horsehair brush.post #3779 of 77059/4/13 at 8:10pm
Hello all. Long time reader, first time poster here...
I just bought my first pair of 1000 Mile Boots at Nordstrom week ago (and yes, this thread and you all share a good part of the credit/blame for that :-) ). They were perfectly comfortable right out of the box and I did have to drop a size from my AE Strands for fit. I'm very happy with them so far except I've noticed a defect I missed in the store and I'm not sure if I should return them because of it or not. Can I get an opinion or two?
Thanks and nice to meet you all.post #3780 of 77059/4/13 at 8:16pm
