    I have to ask. The boot on the right - clown shoe, baseball shoe or lens distortion ?

    Could be some barrel or angle distortion. It might be size 9s next to 14s too. I didn't really worry about that. It's a side by side color comparison under the same light in a single shot.

    I was thinking it was because of difference in size.

    After Obenauf's and Sno-Seal treatments, I've been wearing my new brown W1Ks for a few hours a day for the last couple of days. They're very comfortable. Does anyone have any suggestions on some medium weight socks that will stay up? My current socks fall down, bunch up, and work their way into the top of the boot, which is very annoying. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    x2 on the Smartwool. I use the light hikers for my boots. Versatile material, don't need to wash after every wear. Worth the extra $

    Finally checked out a pair of the brown 1k in person and was surprised by the rather angular toe box, does this mellow out a bit with wear?
    Also, can someone comment on the colors or post a side by side pic of the Red Wing GT black cherry and the 1000 mile cordovan #8? Would be nice to have a sleeker alternative to the RWs.

    Can anyone recommend a good cushy insole for the 1ks? Mine is wearing out but I was never satisfied with it fully. Just a basic gel insole. I'd love something with a little arch support and a snug fit.

    A pair of original 1000 mile boots in any color and size along with a Filson wool vest is now up for auction in the Ronald McDonald Charity Auction Thread. So if you were on the fence now's your chance to get them and support a great cause.

    Would wearing said socks (or similar socks) require someone (me) who is looking into purchasing a pair of 1K's to size up?

    Yeah I actually use Filson boot oil as well. Does some really nice touching up on my boots and I even use it on my saddleback products (also by the advice of Crane's). Between those two things and occasional dusting with a horsehair brush they've stayed in great shape. I will say that the color has darkened through the use of these products, buts its a really beautiful dark chestnut color. Also I got a rubber sole put on the front half of the boot and I think it was worth the investment. Depends how you use them though.

    Not unless you were planning on sizing down.

    I'm currently using the Spenco[​IMG] Full Length Arch Cushions. Amazon has them for about $12 a pair. It has good arch support but not too aggressive.
