I've used obenaufs on it because I feel like It absorbs easier. The leather soaked up the wax 10000000 times quicker than the upper. Made me feel like it needed some protecting.

Sno seal was much more slick the one time I tried it. It was slick on dry pavement in the warm.

Obenaufs has been fine so far. I'm sure it makes it more slick the first 1-2 times you wear them. Worth it to me if it protects the leather and stitching.

No experience with Obenauf's, but anybody who's used SnoSeal before knows that it's actually quite sticky-tacky rather than greasy-slippery.

if you were to choose the 1000 mile or the 1000 mile captoe (rockford), which one would you pick? or just get both in different colors?

Plain toe. First, tradition always wins with heritage style boots. Second, balmoral work boots is sort of strange looking, compared to bluchers.

Anyone had a chance to compare the more expensive Oak Street Trench Boot to our 1Ks? Curious to hear if there's a big difference.

Yeah, I'm getting annoyed with the lace shredding that seems to happen over time with my Wolverines.

I had a pair of OSBs. My opinion was that they are a super-quality boot, though not of particularly different quality than W1K, except that W1K's don't come in Natty CXL. That said, I found that they were wayyyyyy too wide, and I have a really wide foot (9.5EEE AE, 9.5E Alden). I went with my True length, and I found that they were too short, while also being much too wide, both at the joint of my foot, and in the heel, even with the laces tied all the way closed. It was bizarre, my toe was banging against the forward part of the boot, while also sliding side to side every-which-way inside the boot. They seemed to be sized appropriately otherwise though, the joint of my foot was in *exactly* the right place for how the shoe is shaped, right at the flex point of the sole. But I had no toe room in front of that point.

They are gorgeous, but I just don't see how anyone fits into them.

thanks for this, i do prefer the 1k rust colour than the rockford brown

I'm starting to really appreciate owning a good pair of boots. Aesthetically they look fantastic and the comfort was there from the first wearing.

Already looking for some Shell's as my next purchase. I like the rust in these but I may go for something a bit darker for variety.

I don't know. I do know after wearing them a while they'll get the raptor treatment. Then I would beat them to death and see how they hold up. LOL!

YES! Just got my Rust W1K's from Crane's today! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

These are my first pair of badass boots, so here comes my one and only noob question after going through this thread.

I know all about Crane's method and which products to use (bought Obenauf's LP, Oil and Cleaner).

BUT, is it necessary to oil and LP them right out of the box?? I want to wear and show them off right now lol.

Thanks again for hookin it up Crane!

I wore mine for a few months before treating them, but the weather was nice.
