    Just out of interest do Wolverine mark their seconds in any way ?

    I've seen that Redwing punch a hole in the leather tongues and Filson X out the labels. Can't recall if Wolverine mark theirs.

    I picked up two pairs of seconds from STP. One had no markings and frakly I couldn't see why they were seconds. The other pair had some miscolorations (brown boots) and had a punch in the tongue to mark the seconds nature. The discolorations looked like they probably happened at the Horween level and i still liked the boots, so I kept both.

    I've never handled seconds in the 1K line or in anything else for that matter. I would say that they do mark them somehow. The warranty only covers firsts so if someone tries to be slick they have to have a way of determining this.

    That is what I was thinking. It would also help people determine if they have been sent first or second quality goods when buying online.

    Oh and just for grins, I have seen Filson mark their seconds in other ways - such as writing on the labels with no X

    Btw, kinda new to boots and stuff so when I wear this wear jeans, do I need to lace up the shoelaces up to the top or leave it as it is?

    There are no rules when wearing jeans.

    Many options - Obenauf's, Montana Pitch, Snoseal and/or an umbrella.

    I think boots look better if you leave the top eyelet/speedhook undone. But it depends on how much extra laces you have. The only hard and fast rule is to never be the kind of person who leaves their boots unlaced and then tucks their pants into the boots.

    Here are my cordovan Indy cigar boots drying out next to the wife's Wolverine 1,000 mile boots after a Sunday afternoon or gardening and planting trees as seen this Monday morning.
