    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.
