    Thanks, but I already found that out. They don't have my size, but I did add myself to their 're-stock' mailing list.

    Thanks anyway mate :)

    I cant decide for myself what size to keep. 8.5D in black, 9D - brown.
    8.5D fits ok with a dress sock, snug with wool and kind of tight w insole. I can use a bit more width, but not critical, although I see a toe popping from the side lol. I like the slimmer look on it, but I do not like that it creases diagonally. There is maybe 1/2 inch space in the toe box, so the length is fine.
    9D fits a little loose with dress socks, some heel slippage, better w wool and insole. There is like almost 1 inch free space in the toe box? I am not sure that I like the wider look on it, but i do like that creasing is more proportional?
    what do you think guys? Should I try 8.5eee? Or stick with one of the sizes that I have already? Thanks

    Has anyone else had issues with an order from Repertoire(shoerepertoire.com) during that last sale? I bought a pair of the Cordovan original 1k boot via paypal, payment went through immediately, and I'm stuck in processing on day 12. Emailed 2x for an update and called with no answer once, I guess I try again tomorrow. The only thing I can think of is my primary email on paypal is different from my purchase email, by one letter, and that effed up the automated process. But that also means they're sitting on a paypal payment that has my order ID and purchase details right on it and doing nothing currently.

    This has been a problem with repertoire sales in the past. Seems like they get overwhelmed with purchases. There have been past posts on Reddit about this. Not a good reason for them to ignore emails and not pick up the phone, but it seems like people ultimately get what they ordered, just after a long wait.

    Since you damaged both pairs of boot and can no longer return either pair, I suppose you may as well wear each pair for a while and see which fits you the best.

    With regard to sizing; in my experience, after a complete resole the boots fit wider than before. Maybe something to consider if keeping a size that's already loose.
    Oh; what a fkn crazy thing to do to not one but two boots!!

    Wolverine just restocked all the sizes they didn't have on their site. So if you wanted a retail pair but your size was out of stock it is there now.

    Let me join the public stone throwing. That is not really a good way to treat a boot when determining amount of free space in the toe area. Simply wiggling your toes, raising your big toe and pressing down gently with your thumb should be sufficient. The 1K boots do have a fairly solid toe box and it must have taken some force to press them in like that.

    As for sizing, I would always go with slightly too large than slightly too small as your feet will expand if your are on them all day.

    I'd imagine they spring right back.

    I didn't like how bulbous my RW Beckman's were, so I bashed the toe with a hammer, put them in a vice, etc. The toe would indent, but pop right back up.

    I hope that they did. I'd hate to see another post in a few weeks with someone complaining about one boot with a crushed toe box and the other OK.
