I would not accept that on a new pair of boots. Send them back

That's a great deal for a $550 pair of boots if you can cover up the splotchiness with a few layers of polish. Is the fit the same as the regular line? I like this boot a lot better than their cheaper chelsea.

I just bought these from Bloomingdale for about $160. I can't figure out what the exact model is and if it was a good deal.

Do wolverine1000 boots run a littler larger than other boots. Should I go down 1/2 size? Usually wear just normal cotton socks not too thick. Thanks smile.gif

The consensus is size down 1/2 to 1 size.

Thanks for the info!!   I'd love to be able to try someone (already broken in) on to see how they fit.....I don't see that happening.....LOL

Thsnks Steve!! How long have you had them. They still look damn sharp bud. Live to find a pair just like yours in my size. Nicely worn.

I have had them for several years. 6 or 7, maybe. Actually bought them used from SF member NAMOR.

Sizing down seems to be the case for most people but I wear 1000 Mile boots and Iron Rangers true to size. The 1K's fit me better, though. I find the IR to be narrow across the top of the foot and way too wide in the toe box. Too bad, because I have had a few pairs in my size run through my inventory and I like the look of them.
