    Add me to the camp of having both.

    Agreed that both are solid boots and perfect for alternating them like you would with dress shoes.

    I replaced the laces on my Beckman with leather one and as mentioned earlier in this thread, added commando sole to the W1K to make them more Winter friendly.

    I was just rooting around on the Wolverine site to see if they'd finally started to offer anything other than the Black and Brown in 3E (they haven't, the fuckers) and saw that they're planning a some Filson collab boots. You guys who are into that should keep an eye out.

    Just got my rust Wolverine 1ks... seems like the right shoe is perfect but the left shoe is a little weird here:

    Couldn't capture it very well, but it seems like the leather isn't really stitched down, theres a flap of leather hanging out with glue (?) all over the place, and theres also an extra stitching hole... just wondering if this is purely a cosmetic problem and that it's something that I have to take with these handmade items, or if it's actually something I need to worry about...

    For reference, here's the other shoe, perfect:

    Tough to tell from pics, but if its the welting you're talking about then no worries.

    Yeah, it's the welting... it seems it could be a potential point of entry for water though...?

    One of mine looks exactly like that, and I think this topic has come up before. I don't let it bother me.

    Alright, that sounds great then!

    Btw, any opinions on treating the sole? I read the whole thread and saw a few people asking, but I think the general consensus is that it's definitely not needed?

    so if i wear a size 7 in most of my shoes (chucks, AE, clarks desert boots), I would then need a size 6.5? But it doesn't look like there are any sites stocking that size?

    Measure your foot using one of those foot measuring devices at any shoe store and go half a size smaller. Chucks and clarks DB's generally fit much different. I wear a 9 in chucks, 10 in Db's and 9.5 in 1k miles. My foot measures a true size "10"

    I'm in the same boat as BIK201, I have small feet and not sure I could fit into a 7. A size 7 in Clarks DB are a little big and it doesn't seem like there's anything smaller than a 7 in these.

    Is there a real difference from the mens and womens 1k besides the number of lace holes?

    in case anyone's curious, they just got back to me and said they have no plans to offer anything other than the 2 1000 mile boots in 3E.

    Do these boots look good with shorts or just jeans?

    No boots look good with shorts. Not for men.
