    My GF picked up a pair of the Brown W1K at lunch from the CM store on Bloor. So going to try the 11 1/2 out, if they are still to tight, then im going to just order them from Cranes. I want to get them from him originally, but wanted to see how they fit first.

    Not sure, but CM said that there is a 60 (!!) day return policy, never knew it was that long.

    Are you speaking to me? I do like Dublin leather, I have two pair of shoes from AE made with it. It is a very nice leather, shines up quite well and has a nice aged look...

    It just looks bad, never shines up well, dull.Scratches real easy. Creases funny too. Not like my other leathers.

    I recently bought an old pair of Red Wing Boots, in good old calfskin...

    With a little TLC they are now stunning. The pictures to not do them justice!

    If you order from the US and have it shipped to Canada, expect to pay duties. I ordered mine from Revolve when they were still doing the discount, and I got charged.

    Edit: It was still cheaper than buying it locally in Canada at those ridiculous prices they have here.

    Meh, I still think you can shine up CXL enough for a mixed-purpose boot:

    I like the pull-up nature and the way they crease.

    Though, my RedWing Beckman's can be mirrored quite easily if that's your preference, that's true.

    Also, the W1K shell can take a shine nicely - check out the pic in my sig :)

    Yeah, more or less. It's a matter of personal preference - some guys really like CXL, I just don't.

    Well these shoes just hate me. I tried on the 11.5 Brown W1k, and the were still snug around the bridge area, seems like my feet are too wide, so i guess im going to try to find a pair in EEE width. NO idea where ill find that locally.

    Any suggestions, is there a chance that the boot will stretch to my foot ? or should i not risk it and go for the EEE width ?

    Still looking for thoughts on this, here is a closer pic. Basically just missing the stitches in the bottom of the rectangle. It looks like a reinforcement, not sure how difficult this is to fix.

    That happened to mine shortly after I bought them 2 years ago. I think I just tied a knot to stop it getting worse. It's been fine ever since.

    However, I seem to remember someone on here had the same issue and contacted wolverine who gave him a new pair.
