I find them to run between half and a full size big

I have 2. They're OK, the CXL leather is nice but construction isn't the best. I prefer Redwing iron rangers or Beckmans but the 1K miles are a different aesthetic

The leather is fairly thin, but the overall aesthetic makes them look nicer. Unfortunately there are more incidents of QC issues the last couple of years. Redwing makes a more sturdier boot. However since I own the Beckmans without speed hooks I more often reach for my 1ks.

Hmm, I don't find the leather thin. Mine are a few years old tho.
Rarely wear them now and my wings are relegated to shit kicker status. I found Vass and that was that

Mine are also a couple of years old and I guess I find it thin when compared to the CXL used on my Carmina CXL shoes and Viberg CXL boots. I also find the leather although different on my Redwing Beckmans to be a bit thicker as well.
