Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 399

Spring Forward Deal

Yep, it's time to change the clocks and spring forward. So in honor of changing the clocks here's another deal on 1K boots. It's site wide and if there's something you don't see call the store. Good through Monday.

SPRING20 is the magic word. Should be easy to figure out how much off.

A few questions before I pick up my first pair.  I wear a 10D in most dress shoes with a dress sock.  Should I assume the same with these boots?  I read a few posts throughout this thread where people have sized down half a size and had good results.

 

I also read about the thickness of socks, toe room, etc.  I got measured today and was told again 10 D, maybe slightly more narrow than a D, but 10D seems to work well for me in most cases.

 

Also, I'm having trouble deciding between Brown and Color 8.  Any input?

This is how you get it right when it comes to size. Read the whole thing through and follow the links in the article.

Okay, so I went and actually tried on a 9.5 and used a pretty standard dress sock. They were tight everywhere with a little heel slip and plenty of toe room. They didn't have a 9 to try, but I figure with a padded insert or thick socks, the extra toeroom in the 9.5 was a good thing. However they just felt really uncomfortable. Like the boot doesnt feel comfortable where a toe crease would be. Felt like I was wearing those scuba shoes. Does this go away and break in? It would be my first real boot, so I have no idea what to expect.

They'll be fine and will soon crease appropriately. The two boots will not crease exactly the same, this is to be expected. Feel free to condition the creases if the the leather looks dry.

Did you get properly measured with a Brannock or not?

Yes,

 

My toe just barely hits the line for 10.  I'm just shy of a "D" width, on the narrow side.

Then you should go with a 10 with boot socks or possibly a 9.5 if you are going to wear thin dress socks only.

Couldn't choose a boot brand or style so decided to try them all…
This is what I call a leather addiction! LOL!

i've now almost read through this entire thread. over a couple weeks.

 

i've been a member here awhile, just don't ever feel the need to post. anyway, i was curious if the Courtlands run a touch wider than the standard 1000 miles? seems moc toes often do. i'm a 9 1/2 D left foot, but my right is just about an E. I tried the 9 1/2 on at Nordstrom, but i felt they were a bit too snug on the sides of my feet. they didn't have the Courtland to compare. thanks.

 

and by the way, i've really enjoyed all of your posts, Cranes! i'm looking for a boot to WEAR. lots of woods behind me with gullies and creeks and adventure.
