    I just realized I have 50' of camo paracord... TY Cranes for my new shoe laces.

    I've still been too lazy to get to my cobbler, so I haven't worn the 1K's in awhile. [​IMG]

    Hey, it's the duct tape of cord. Works great for boot laces and about a million other things.

    I wore my Courtlands out for the first time today. They are breaking in very nicely; pretty much broken in out of the box. And very comfy too!

    How do you handle skinny chicken legs and ankles like me where the lacing spaces up very close together at the top? :) Almost touching. I wear medium weight socks. Can you visualize what I am talking about?

    Like this? I'm wearing dress socks today, but I usually wear medium weight wool socks with the boots. I don't think much of it, they still fit and wear fine.

    Since it's turning fall-like, decided to break out my 1Ks. I'm really glad I picked up the rust.

    ^^^ Rust is in my next order. Btw how red is Brown D. I'm obsessed with red or burgundy boots. Make me feel like Superman.

    Yes, sort of. Mine almost touch at the top, at least you have some spacing. Once the boots really break in, I bet it will touch. Like you said, I don't think much of it, they still fit and wear fine. I guess it's the nature of the beast with skinny ankles :)

    Looking to pick up my first pair of boots soon, just the thousand mile ones. I'm wondering whether I should go for rust or tan. I will wear these with jeans (N&F Skinny Guys). Also, if I normally wear a 10 and wont be wearing thick socks or using an insole what size should I get?

    I have chicken legs as well. I have mine laced closely and have some room. Still comfortable and fit well.

    There is barely any room at the top, especially the right boot where it's just about touching. The boots are comfy and fit well, so I guess no worries.

    Hey all.

    I have 2 pair of 1k's in Brown (W05301), neither have been worn and both are still boxed up. 9D and 9.5EEE. Asking $275 each. I'm located in St Louis, MO and would be willing to drive up to an hour to meet, or happily ship them anywhere in the US!

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    I'm very interested in the Wolverine 1K's but am concerned about getting the size right. I wear a 8D in the Danner Acadias for work. Does anyone know how that might translate to a pair of 1K's? I plan on wearing light to medium thick socks.

    ^ My Wolverines are a 1/2 size smaller than my Danners.

    Het everybody, will this area here [​IMG] (it's called the instep right?) loosen up with the 1000 miles boots?
    With size 8.5 the instep feels snug, but still comfortable, but with size 8 it hurt just a little. Will this loosen up? If so, how much? Should I go for 8 or for 8.5?
