    I went with my Indy boot size and they worked just perfect.

    1/2 size down from my normal shoe size.

    I just got an original 1000 mile boots from an online store in Japan, and I noticed that backstay on the right foot is placed incorrectly.
    I asked them to exchange new pair or refund me, but it was refused becuse it is quite normal for US products, they say.
    I posted pictures of my boots, anyone advise me it is normal or defective.

    That is not normal. If you want confirmation, call the customer service number. They will put you in contact with the lady that handles 1000 mile stuff and she will probably have you email her those pics. I don't know if that will be enough to convince the store to exchange them, but if nothing else, I think Wolverine would replace them.

    Here is the number:

    1.800.965.8374

    I would also say that this is not normal.

    Hopefully, the online store used for the purchase got these through official channels.The wolverine website gives the contact info for the Japanese distributor in Tokyo -

    SSK CORPORATION
    3-16-1 KOTOBUKI
    TAITO-KU TOKYO JAPAN 111-8580
    PHONE: 81-3-3843-9116
    FAX: 81-3-3843-9151

    I echo the above comments. I wouldn't accept that issue with any pair of shoes or boots that I would purchase. I would think a store manager or if necessary Wolverine would correct this issue for you.

    I think the online store is importing from US directly.
    Official distributor would have nothing to do with this.

    Thank you guys.
    I sent email to Wolverine US customer service with some pictures.
    I will call them if they don't reply me in couple of days.

    I use one on mine and haven't had a problem. Shoe salesman recommended them, and offered an Alden brand. They have to be made of cedar.

    Full toe from AE should do just fine. Recommended to use cedar shoe trees
