Well, I respect your point of view.
On the other hand, my pair of 1Ks got f**ked up in not much more than 4 weeks (and not worn daily). So for me the boots aren't worth their money. Why spend $300 on shitty boots only to buy quality stuff a month later?
I mean, 300 USD isn't cheap, just spend a hundred more and buy Wescos. They'll last you much longer.
Now I have a pair of boots sitting in my closet that I can't even sell on EBay, because they are defect. 300 $ just blown away.
And, as I said, I'm not alone. Read what others have to say about Wolverine and their QC (and after having issues with QC all the problems with their shitty customer service).
Speaking of the eyelet problem: a quick google search got me more than 100 results. 1Ks seem to be prone to this kind of defect. That's ridiculous. QC anyone????
