Thats odd, im a 11.5-12 normally and the 12s were perfect for me, maybe i just have high archs and wide feet. Anyways, i was putting it off and finally started to sno seal the W1ks, i looked at cranes method. Not sure if i goofed, but i didnt heat the sno seal first, just rubbed it on to the boot, put a fair amount on the seams. And then the pain started, i swear i was using the blow dryer on them for a good hr. It was soaking some of it, but not all, and left alot of extra, which i wipes and brushed off. Is this normal ? Ill take some pics when i get home, but its hard to tell. Also while brushing, i noticed the stitching is fraying on the front of the boot, odd, i never noticed that before. When you guys are heating the sno seal on the boot, how much of it gets absorbed into the leather, and how much is left over ? It was my first time, so maybe i just did it wrong, if thats even possible. You cant really tell the difference with the after shot, mind you ive only worn them a few times before this. Left one is sealed. This pic gives you a better idea of the finish on the show, after wiping it down, and brushing it. And so begins the 2nd boot, if i hadnt seen cranes pics, i would be worried.
