    I want to like these boots but the toe box makes them look like clown shoes.

    Is there anything similar without such a large bulbous toe box?

    About to cop a pair of these using F&F discount. Is the general consensus to size down .5?

    Counterpoint: in 9.5 in most things, 10 in Nike/adidas and my 1ks are 8.5. A little tight at first but perfect with a stretch, so down a full size can work too

    Do any of you guys regret your purchase of the 1k? My finances are kinda effed bc I'm going on vacay soon but copping a pair of these for $140 is too good to pass up.

    I do, but I wouldn't if I had only paid $140. That said, out of the half dozen shoes/boots I own, I wear my 1K's more than anything else. If I could do it all over again, I'd spend the extra money and get some Alden plain toe boots or something of that nature.

    Curious, what specifically about the boots makes you regret the purchase?

    Mostly the obnoxious crinkling/creasing of the leather on my right boot that has been mentioned a lot in this thread. I didn't think it would bug me as much as it has, but now it always annoys me when I look at it. Also at some point in the few months after I got them, they stretched out a bit (I sized down half from my normal size), so now they feel looser than I like my boots to fit. They are otherwise fine boots.

    Agreed.
    10,5 in RedWing, 10,5 in Trickers Stow, but 10 in the 1K.

    All other shoes 11,5.

    This mighy end up very misleading without stating whether its UK sizes or US sizes. 10.5 in Trickers can mean 3 things: UK10.5, US 11 or US11.5 depending on one's conversion.

    I agree. Because some people measure with us and some with Uk

    I remember those pics. Seems to only happen on a few pairs, have you tried contacting Wolverine about it?

    The consensus here was that it is a normal characteristic of Chromexcel and not a problem or unusual in any way, so I never thought to contact Wolverine about it.

    The same thing happened with my right boot. It does get annoying to look at.

    All,

    I just wanted to follow up and let people know that it looks like I have a brand new SOLID pair 1000 Mile Boots. They arrived a couple of days ago and tonight I'll be treating them with Obenauf's leather preservative. I did get my original boots, the 2nd replacement boots, and my most recent pair from Crane's Country Store. They were AWESOME to work with and went the extra distance to make sure everything was set. They emailed me shipping labels etc., took care of EVERYTHING.

    I think in the end, I just had some bad luck with the new boots that I had gotten. In any case, with summer here in Tahoe I probably won't be wearing that much until the Fall.... but I'll be set for then!

    Quick question
    The leather insole seems to be glued in my shoe with some cotton-ish stuff.
    I am adding a new pair of rubber insoles to by boots (as they were not as snug as I like)

    Can I remove the orignal insole? What is that cotton-ish stuff?
    Should I be putting new insole on top of the old one? or should i stack both? (Both ways feel fine)

    Wolverine Addison seconds for $148 at Sierra

    Good selection of sizes left, Brown, Tan, Black. Today's bets code seems to be STFD6113 bringing it down to $148+tax. Use the apps (at least iOS) to get free shipping. Total to New York was $160, which is a steal for these. Don't need them, but I've been wanting tan Addisons forever, so I decided to pull the trigger.

    EDIT: Bigger deal, they just put up the plain toe 1000 miles as well as the Sophia 12" 1000 miles (for women). Don't need the plain toes, but copped the brown Sophia's for my GF. Hell of a day for Wolverines.
