    You know, he says the "sides of the boot sags more on the right side than the left." Taken with you suggesting not tying the laces, that might be it. Otherwise, what would he mean by saying the sides sag? If the laces aren't tied up on the speedhooks, but worn like the cool kids do, with the tongue out and pants tucked in, I can see the sides flopping outward and creasing like that. In which case it would be user error.

    right boot looks like it was left underwater for an extended period of time or something, that's some terrible creasing.

    I find it hard to believe that with normal care and normal wear that any boots would look like that. More to this than meets the eye methinks.

    One boot was made using seal leather retrieved from some sunken ship centuries ago. The other is just regular CXL.

    So I got a pair of these recently and they fit fine and are a very nice pair of boots. However, I didn't realise how narrow the boot itself is - far too narrow in my opinion. They really don't look that great with even slim fitted jeans, and they definitely don't look rugged like I prefer this style of boot to look. I'll probably buy a pair of Iron Rangers soon instead, so to anyone considering a pair of these as a rugged looking lace up boot, I'd definitely not recommend them for that sort of style.

    My iron-ranger feels alot narrower in the same size as 1000M and looks just as big. YMMV.

    Hmm from what I've seen the Iron Ranger toe looks wider than the Wolverine 1000 mile one?

    They don't look rugged. Explain this to me please? I'm not sure what rugged looks like but I can assure you that the boots can withstand the abuse of a rugged lifestyle.

    About the comment made about submerged under water for a while...

    You do realize I started wading in water all day long last year with these boots when I rock hunt? My boots do not look anything like that. As someone pointed out there's probably more to this story.

    The idea that the boots aren't rugged is silly. They are aesthetically extremely similar to red wing, whites, viberg, etc. However, I do admit when worn, they make the foot appear smaller, even though (in my opinion) the fit itself is actually quite roomy. Maybe it's something with the lines of the boot idk.

    I got a pair off of STP (tan seconds) and they look good. Only thing I can tell is that there are some dark streaks on the leather upper, but not quite stains. I don't think they take away from the shoe at all, especially since they will get dirty once I start wearing them!

    One question I had about the leather maintenance. My wife has some chamberlain leather milk for her bags and shoes. Would that be something similar to filson boot oil or meltonian leather lotion?

    Did you get these boots yet? If so, how did they fit compared to 1K's? Thanks!

    They're definitely narrower and sleeker looking than your average work boot, more of a dress work boot. Red Wings, Whites, Viberg, etc. are all more rugged looking imo.

    Beware, some pretty horrible customer service stories on reddit about shoerepertoire.
