I think that answers your own question,

Get the larger pair and adjust the fit via the thickness of your socks or by adding inserts/insoles - heel, half length or full length.

Agreed. Throw in an insole to snug things up a bit.

Damn sounds like I did what the guide says not to do. For me my left foot is significantly wider and a tiny bit longer than my right. With the 7's I feel pressure on the widest part of my foot on my left. On my right fit it fits the width but there's a pretty significant heel slip. I should still size up correct?

Does the thickness of my sock matter? I've never had boots before so I was curious.

All of this is covered in the sizing guide that I wrote. With that said it appears there's a significant difference in sizing between your feet. You might have to reside to the fact that these boots may not work for you.

Yeah that unfortunately sounds like that's going to be the case. I ordered them already so I'll try it on again when they get here. Can always return if it doesn't work out and be on the hunt for another pair of boots. Thanks man.

I'd love to know more about the McClean.

 

Are they basically just regular 1000 Miles but with a cap toe? @Deep Gully, is that what you meant by "double toe"? Do they come in any colors other than what looks like Brown Chromexcel? Is that a single butyl sole?

 

$229.90 seems like the cheapest way to get one's first 1000 Miles. Any other less-than-$350 options out there to consider?

I picked up the McClean last week. Looks like just a captoe brown 1000 mile boot.
Only available in the one make up brown captoe.

Excellent fit and finish made in USA etc.

I really like mine for the price this is a no brainer.

McClean appears to have the butyl sole which should wear better.

They cost 1/3 less than the 1k, and with the beefy/lug sole, have slightly less "dress" pretensions than the 1k.

 

But yeah, worse than the damage is that they thought it was a good idea to put that in their product photo.

 

Or knew it wasn't a good idea and being that they're a small startup just didn't realize they had options.

 

Can imagine the anxiety that caused.

 

Nice looking boots otherwise. Wonder how the fit is.

They say they fit true to size.

They struck me as a cross between the 1K and the Redwing Beckman. Only available for pre-order with no indication of delivery timeframe on the embryonic website. Kickstarter website is not that helpful either. Like the look of the roughout boot though, but I shall resist as my next boot purchase really should be a pair of the William Lennon B5 boot and I really don't need another pair of footwear at this point.

How did you guys size the McClean? Nordstrom's said true to size, but I'm tempted to size half down just like I did with my first and only pair of Wolverine 1K.
