Thank you EastWest for those samples. I hope your worked and worn pages get more photos. It would be great to see new and worn in boots next to each leather swatch.
I'm still debating my decision. I have a lot of trouble taking the proper fit on faith. I found 9.5 1000 miles to fit very well on Monday. I even found a place that's not too far of a drive that has the 744LTDs in stock. Trying to decide if I should drive down there but if I like them it's way more than I want to spend. Even the SDs are more than I was looking to spend but for really great foot support... It still might be the way to go.
744's fit exactly the same as Classic 1K's.
