Bought my Wolverine 1000 mile boots too big, suggestions?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello All,

 

I recently bought a pair of wolverine rockford cap toe 1000 mile boots and like an idiot i bought my true size instead of taking the advice of many on this forum, other forums, maybe websites, etc.  I tried on a regular boot 9.5 it felt a little tight in the store and the only other they had was 10.5 that felt too big (no 10 available).  So I ended up picking up a pair on ebay size 10 (my normal size).  Out of the box they felt a tad big but they have loosened up even more.  I tried insoles but it takes away from the comfort of the boots.  Is it possible to shrink the leather on these?  Can a cobbler do anything?

 

Thanks for any help, and feel free to take shots and me, it was dumb of me, but please throw a suggestion in also, LOL.

You can't shrink shoes.

You probably can try returning them or sell them.

What insole did you use?

 

Try using this one:  http://www.rei.com/product/721632/sole-ed-viesturs-signature-series-custom-footbeds-high-volume

 

With thicker socks?

Sell them on B&S. Buy new pair in correct size.
