    The OP of the question in post 4687 gave none of this information. I was in between sizes....I wanted arch support....

    All he asked was what he asked.

    Come one though....I know nothing about these boots and could tell you that was a silly question.

    I purposely bought my boots too large and now they have funny wrinkles. Without being rude, and not intending to be....of course they have funny wrinkles. You bought them too long for your foot. The insole raises your foot up, it does not make it longer.

    What I found by taking this approach did lead to disappointment, but not through the feel of the fit. In this case, the boots fit snug and insole had the effect of keping my heel well anchored and my foot well aligned. However your point about length did turn out to be the main draw-back. Now in said boots, the toe is close to an inch from the edge of the toe box, perhaps just outside this range. Perhaps when I add a black pair to the collection I will try sizing down to my true size, tight as it may be, and wear it in proper. But these boots do have a disappointing level of arch support and cushioning on their own. As it stands, I'm still not certain I'd rather sacrifice comfort for a slightly diminished toe box wrinkle.

    I typically take a 9 when 9 isn't too snug.. In this case I went with 9.5. Would that 9 1/4 were an option...

    FWIW, I have one boot with a toe wrinkle. .. And one without.

    Very annoying to me.

    These are workboots and workboots are made to have plenty of room in the toe box, both in length and in width. They're made that way so one can go from arctic weight socks down to a thinner boot sock and still be comfortable. It also allows one to use a thin insole as well without issues. I'm a measured 8.5 and I have thin insoles in all 4 pairs of my 1Ks and have worn everything from thin socks to heavy arctic weight socks with the insoles. Things get a bit tight if I go with a fast wicking and arctic weight wool sock combo but when it's that bad out I have good cold weather boots. Basically you have the wrong size boot so your question about creasing becomes moot at this point in time. IF I would hazard a guess I would say that the right size boot wouldn't crease any different than what you see right now because it's a matter of a half size and not something way off the wall.

    They're also a full grain pullup leather and this type of leather creases any which way it wants. Nature of the beast.

    Well I can certainly do an everyday deal. It won't be as good as the DOTD but it'll still be a pretty good deal.

    Is there a consensus on meltonian colored creams? I just bought the Brick color.

    Does it stain the threads?

    Someone from the shoe care thread said it contains distillates.
