1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    ahh thank you so much for your time taking the comparison pics ozzy!

    I've been looking all over the place to see the shaft height of the wolvs and they are shorter and more dressy, but i think they look good if not polished and cleaned. how do they fit with jeans? is it the same or are the wolvs slimmer?

    thanks!

    Hi, they're lower in the toe box and a little slimmer but look superb with jeans with the benefit of being smart with dressier pants too. IMO the red wings are too bulky to be worn dressed up (even the Beckmans) I'll try to get some fit pics with jeans but I'm not gonna subject myself to the ridicule of asking my wife, sorry!!
    Word of warning, the leather sole on the 1k has a weird quality of being REALLY slippy in the wet especially on things like granite paving on sidewalks

    P.s if you get the 1ks don't just let them go to rack and ruin! The leather is of much higher quality than the wings IMO and deserves at least an occasional brush and some leather cream. I didn't really look after mine for a couple of years and kinda regret that

    If you want a rugged boot go for the Iron Rangers. I have both and I much prefer my IR's. I find the Wolverines are far too slim in their profile, which makes pants look overly baggy with them.
