    I think that brown color goes with a lot more of my clothes. I am glad its not green, I for sure have my pair reserved for the 20th, will post pics when I pick them up. My local store, got 70 pairs, so I am sure there shouldn't be a shortage.

    Sweet, they feel a little more comfortable than the 721's.

    i think these boots will look better as they break in, not so shiny as they are now!

    The toe box is not reinforced, so I would imagine it would flatten over time.

    So despite not being initially impressed, I think I will give these a try. Are you guys going true to size or down a half step? I will be wearing these as casual boots (not work boots) so I will not be wearing thick works socks.

    Also, how are they on width? I am normally an E-width. Do these have much lateral room? Can anyone compare to the Barrie last?

    I just saw these in-person and instantly fell in love and bought a pair for myself. I actually found them as factory seconds, so aside from the 9.5s that I got for myself, I bought 2 extra pairs to pass along to other fashion nerds who don't want to miss out on these (given only 1000 were made). Since I don't have enough posts on this forum to start a thread in the buy/sell area, I figured I'd mention that here. I have a pair in 9 and a pair in 10.5 that I'm willing to part with...so send me a PM if you have any interest in these. (If me mentioning that in this thread is a no-no, my apologies, and I'll happily edit my post accordingly. Just let me know)

    As far as fit goes, I tend to be stuck between 9 & 9.5 for most shoes, and I think that applies to these shoes too. The 9 might be a wee bit small (but could potentially stretch to fit correctly) and the 9.5 might be a wee bit large. I ended up choosing the 9.5 for the winter months when I wear thicker socks, but they fit fine today in my dress socks.

    Edit: 10.5s have now sold. That said, if you're interested in other sizes (or another pair of 10.5), let me know and I can check for stock on more pairs of seconds.

    Two questions regarding these:
    1. Are they also made by Allen Edmonds like the 721s?
    2. Is the shape of the 744s the same as that of the original 1000 Miles? Especially the toe box.

    1) Yes indeed. I don't think I would've spent this kind of money on a cordovan boot if it weren't being made by a more elegant shoemaker than Wolverine. I trust AE implicitly.

    2) I would say they're a bit lower profile/sleeker than the standard 1000 milers, but I've only tried the others on in a store. Here are a few photos taken from above for you to see the toe box. For reference, these are the 10 1/2s.

    indigoeagle: I replied to your questions (with pictures of the toe box), but since I'm a new member, it's being approved by the mods. That post should show up soon.

    Edit: looks like they put that post above this one. Sorry for any confusion.

    Thanks for your reply and the pics.
    Yes, it does look sleeker.
    Does Wolverine make the original one themselves? Or is it also done by AE?

    I guess I'm confused. What do you mean "the original one?"

    To my knowledge, the only boots that AE has made for Wolverine are their cordovan boots.

    By original I meant the CXL plain toe one that is available in brown, black and tan. I had assumed it was called 'original'.
    I just checked the site. They're just called "the 1000 mile boot" while the other models have further descriptions added such as "Cap Toe", "Wingtip", etc..
    That's also what I meant with the comparison of this 744ltd one with the plain toe CXL one.
    I had read somewhere that one salesperson said those were manufactured by Whites.

    Ahh...that makes perfect sense. My apologies for the confusion/ignorance as to what you meant.

    Since I've gotten so many PMs about the factory seconds for these shoes, I was able to get my hands on a pair of 9.5s and a pair of 10s (along with the pair of 9s that I bought earlier). I'm certainly not trying to turn this into a buy/sell thread, but given the cost savings, I figured I'd post that here.

    FYI Allen Edmonds is selling seconds for $399, they fall under their typical seconds return policy (exchange or return if unworn). Shoot them an email or call and they'll tell you what sizes they have in stock.

    Edit: Didn't want this to turn into a price discussion. Apparently I paid too much.

    Deleted post.
