    Hi All,

    The Wolverine 744's are my first pair of shell boots. The fit is perfect, but the boots "sqeak" when I walk in them. Is this normal for this type of boot, and more importantly, will the "squeaking" work its way out?

    Thanks.

    John

    So what's the consensus on sizing with these? I'm an 8.5 in the AE 5 last, a 9 in sneakers, and an 8 in a Clark's db..should I go for an 8 or 8.5?

    I want to share with you that I wear 8D in Alden Barrie last longwing and I try on the Wolverine 744 in size 8 and 8.5. I end up getting size 8. It fit me perfectly. 8.5 have way too much room in the front.

    Just picked up a pair of the 1000 Mile 744's. As for sizing, I recommend going TTS (which would be .5 size larger than non Cordovan 1000 Mile made in USA boots). Here 's the pics aka 744 pr0n:

    I want to revise my sizing advice on these boots. I think they run .5 size large, just like the regular non-cordo 1000 Mile boots.

    I agree, that's how I sized mine. That said, my 744/721s are both a hair snug on the sides, but I have a wide foot. 9 is perfect length and a fine width, 9.5 would be a better width but the length felt much too long.

    So,

    I just won this pair of new 744's that just happened to be in my size. For the price, I imagine they would have to be seconds. I don't, however, see any mark on the bottoms of the soles, like I have with other 744 seconds I've seen posted for sale on this site. It seems like one of the captoes is a fair bit lighter than the other, so that might be why they are seconds, and that seems like an easy thing to remedy.

    Would anyone with a pair of seconds be able to tell me where they are marked as such? Thanks in advance,

    Are they numbered on the tongue?

    I don't have them in my hands just yet, so I don't know. All I have to go on is the images in the Ebay posting. I was just wondering if I might be able to determine anything by the lack of marks on the sole of the shoe, and really hoping I don't get very poor quality seconds, with something like a hole in the leather (Happened to me with a pair of seconded CXL 1K's from STP).

    Cheers,

    the 744 toe cap pinching looks like its flaring up. Is that common? or am i just seeing things?
