Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 332

post #4966 of 6895
If that's where my toe is then I'm either sizing down or getting another boot.

That may be the proper fit but I'm liable to trip and kill myself with that much shit in front of my feet.

10E in Brannock.  I tried on the 10D, and while not painful (yet), they were far from comfortable.

I don't know what you're talking about. Also, please disregard my signature...

Proper fit means the widest part of your foot should line up with widest part of the boot, and your heel should be moderately snug. If that's where your toes end up fitting, that's where your toes are.

I imagine those will stretch, although sizing up to a 10.5D may be preferable.

Unless you're wearing climbing shoes or high heels (if you're into that sorta thing), your toes should NEVER touch the front of your shoes. You should be able to walk on a downward slope without your toes touching the front of your boots.

Shake my head at guys sizing boots like t-shirts.

 

While there is some give in leather your feet are more flexible and will be the thing that breaks first. A too tight fit will potentially cause irreparable damage to your feet.

The amount of people on this site who don't know how to properly size ANYTHING is baffling. SIZE DOWN SIZE DOWN SIZE DOWN IT'LL STRETCH OUT TO BE PERFECT (don't mind the throbbing and numbness, it's normal).

LOL, true that.

Looks like a place in LA and one in MI just put a bunch of stuff for sale on Amazon. Just bought a pair of Courtland boots for $230

No shit. I knew I should have studied podiatry. A real simple cure for this size down garbage is force people to stand on concrete for 16 hours a day for a week or so.

Thank you, the only sizing advice you should take.

 

You should also consider the appropriate type of socks when measuring.  If your footwear fits great with thick hiking socks, it will fit extremely sloppy with dress socks.

 

Proper boot fit = snug width and instep

You really are clueless.

Stop giving bad advice.  Unless you plan on wearing thick hiking socks year round, your fit is improper.

 

Hey smart guy, thicker socks mean wider width.

 

There are reasons why shoes and boots come in different widths.

 

 

If your sizing advice is legit, your customers won't be asking for exchange, as it happened a few times in this thread.

 

I am not sure if you even know ANYTHING about the brannock device.

 

"Due to differences in manufacturing, styling, and other variables, it is up to each fitter to be knowledgeable of shoe styles and fit characteristics. It may be necessary to make compensation in sizing to achieve a proper fit for each individual customer. The fitting process often involves trial fittings to ensure that the proper size was selected."

Bad advice? Really? And how many years have you been selling work boots? Aren't you the same guy that said Nick Horween said CXL doesn't need to be conditioned? I'll tell you what "smart guy". Instead of trying to dazzle me with your lack of knowledge why don't you ask all the people here if I have a clue or not about sizing. Hell I bet a few of them could come up with some of the rather lengthy posts I made about how to determine your proper size.

Whatchya say Bucko? You game for a little heat taking from the people or are you just going to keep spewing drivel?

I am actually surprised Wolverine allow you to sell these boots...
