    The difference is in the stitching up top. I don't see that on any of the boots on the site.

    There appears to be some model numbers out there that may not be for sale on the wolverine site and is a dealer only thing. Some of our other vendors do this too.

    I wonder what the stats would reveal? what lasts longer, the average marriage or a pair of Wolverine 1k's?

    Hmmm, since the typical marriage lasts about 8 years in the US I'll bet on the 1Ks. I've already said that I can see these boots lasting more than 10 years easily so....

    If you think about it that's pretty pathetic thing to say.

    I appreciate the help, Remeny. Looks like that's the same size as my shorter left boot. If anyone has a size 10 pair of boots, could you provide measurements for the boots as well? I'd like to know the difference between the two sizes. Thanks.

    The captoe boots on the top row appear to also have 360 degree storm welts as well. I like the plain captoe more than the perforated toes on the 744. I prefer speed hooks though.

    Well, if the wife gets the boots in the divorce settlement does it really matter?

    X2. The full-eyelets on my Beckman's is really aggravating.

    Thanks haiglarsen. Wow, so the difference between the 9.5 and 10 is 7/16 of an inch. I thought half sizes differed by about 1/6 of an inch. Now I'm thinking that it might still be safer to go with a 9.5 and hope for a little stretch than to move up to a size 10. That pretty much guarantees having to double sock it all the time.

    I switched over to leather laces from the stock waxed laces for the reason that they loosen up easily when I taje the boots off.

    Still don't own a pair but my girlfriend is loving hers. Was polishing some shoes yesterday and I hit hers up with some shoe cream to minimize a scratch from the dog.

    May eventually KOP after another pair of boots dies.

    Well... got my 744s out the other night to give them a quick brushing before wearing the next day. Noticed that the right toe cap (744 LTD) is coming unstitched. Contacted AE (they actually made the boot) and they directed me to Wolverine. I've worn the boots 10-12 times, only to the office/airport/running errands. They got caught in the rain the last time I wore them and immediately this stitching flaw become evident. It appears to me that they glued the toe cap down and tried to sell the boot. The stitching stops an inch or so from the welt.

    I really hope they make this right, else I'm going to retrench further into my AE/Alden-only shoe mindset.

    I'm a little confused and maybe photos would help, but you didn't notice that the stichting stopped an inch from the welt until now? I'm assuming I'm miss understanding. Either way you will not be able to go through AE, they made them for Wolverine so in this case they are completely removed from the process unless for some reason Wolverine returns them for repair to AE (which is highly unlikely).
    They have stood behind their product in the past and don't see why this would be an exception. Who did you buy these from?
