It really is not going to be possible for us to tell the integrity of the stitching from even the detailed pieces that you posted. The loose stitching can be trimmed, some glue applied and then pushed into one of the holes with a pin, needle or awl. This will only help with the cosmetics, not necessarily with the strength of the stitching. Maybe take them to a cobbler to seek their opinion or just exchange them if you are unhappy/

Thanks, guys, just jittery after a big purchase.  Maybe you know the feeling?  I took the boots to Nordstrom where I purchased them from and they told me "if it gets worse in 3 to 6 months bring them back and we will take care of you."  Nordstrom is awesome, first time customer there and probably will be repeat business now.  Great customer service.

 

I am going to have them looked at by a cobbler as well, then probably burn the stitch off and let the chips fall where they may.  Thanks again.

Just a quick display of how mine look after 4 months of pretty normal use.  Have used Montana Pitch Blend lightly when I bought them and then I have used it to blend and smooth out scratches and scuffs as I wear them.

What would folks recommend for a large/high instep?  I have a really hard time with dress shoes, or boots.  And I know the 1000 Mile may not be considered a dress boot, but my work environment is California Business Casual, so I they will fit right in.

 

Basically I wear 9.5 sneaker.  Any sort of dress shoe is a 10 or higher.  The fitment issue is always the tightness across the instep.  I look very silly when trying on 11s because I love the look of a boot or shoe and it "may" fit across the instep, but look clownish (to me at least) as they are so much larger than what i actually wear.

 

I've been kicking around the idea of ordering White's Semi Dress and sending in tracing and measurements, but I like the look of the 1000 Mile more, so am hoping to find a solution from your recommendations.

 

Thanks in advance all.

I know I asked this before, in this forum/thread, but I was hoping to get more ideas than to try a width E boot.  I haven't been able to try that, and it seems my only options are to order and return when they don't fit.  Just seems like it will take a loooooong time to get the boot dialed in.  Maybe that is what I get for not living in a large city with big ol' authorized dealers around.

I think even if you were able to find a retailer of 1000's in a larger city the odds of them having E widths would be slim. E width I believe would be a custom order from any retailer. I could be wrong, but I cannot say I have ever seen one at a store.

Just snagged a pair of black courtland seconds off STP for 180 total

Will post pics when they show up

Hopefully they fit like then original 1k miles.

Maybe I should have gotten Addison's.... Oh well, I think I'll like the half sole.

I bought a pair off STP and this happened after about 4 wears and might be getting worse. The insole/heel pad is starting to slide. I know it's not normal but would it have a bad impact if I leave it? Or should I go to a cobbler?

I wore through the lining right by the edge of the plastic toe reinforcement and now it is exposed and rubs my foot.  Has anyone had this sort of thing fixed before?  How much?

post #6147 of 6761

Has anyone purchased the Evelyn's for a wife or girlfriend that may have an idea on the fit? These things are near impossible to find in a store. Is it still the typical size 1 full size down from your normal shoe size?

I would love to hear a story from someone who's wife may have experience with this style.

 

Thanks

I got a pair of Sophia's (12" bal boot, like Evelyn but taller) for the girlfriend for her birthday, ordered TTS from Crane's, and she thought the fit was great.

Just a heads up, Nau Products on Amazon does NOT sell factory seconds. I just got my pair of the original 1000 miles delivered today and they were in the red box and everything was brand new, no scuffs or imprefections. People on reddit and here had told me that they sell factory seconds but they do not. Oh, and i got them for $212 shipped to my house.

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a pair of new 1000ks (not factory seconds). The first pair had some pretty deep scratches, so I sent them back for an exchange. I received my exchanged pair today, and noticed that they came with these creases that almost look like cracks and blistering.

Here's a photo: 1s9gUtD.jpg?1

Would you guys say that this is normal? I'm a little bit frustrated that Wolverine's QC is so bad. Do you guys think that this is a big deal in terms as far as durability is concerned? e.g. will these creases/cracks expand over time and results in tears in the leather? If not, I might as well just keep them.
