    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.

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