    All of this is covered in the sizing guide that I wrote. With that said it appears there's a significant difference in sizing between your feet. You might have to reside to the fact that these boots may not work for you.

    Yeah that unfortunately sounds like that's going to be the case. I ordered them already so I'll try it on again when they get here. Can always return if it doesn't work out and be on the hunt for another pair of boots. Thanks man.

    I'd love to know more about the McClean.

    Are they basically just regular 1000 Miles but with a cap toe? @Deep Gully , is that what you meant by "double toe"? Do they come in any colors other than what looks like Brown Chromexcel? Is that a single butyl sole?

    $229.90 seems like the cheapest way to get one's first 1000 Miles. Any other less-than-$350 options out there to consider?

    I picked up the McClean last week. Looks like just a captoe brown 1000 mile boot.
    Only available in the one make up brown captoe.

    Excellent fit and finish made in USA etc.

    I really like mine for the price this is a no brainer.

    McClean appears to have the butyl sole which should wear better.

    They cost 1/3 less than the 1k, and with the beefy/lug sole, have slightly less "dress" pretensions than the 1k.

    But yeah, worse than the damage is that they thought it was a good idea to put that in their product photo.

    Or knew it wasn't a good idea and being that they're a small startup just didn't realize they had options.

    Can imagine the anxiety that caused.

    Nice looking boots otherwise. Wonder how the fit is.

    They say they fit true to size.

    They struck me as a cross between the 1K and the Redwing Beckman. Only available for pre-order with no indication of delivery timeframe on the embryonic website. Kickstarter website is not that helpful either. Like the look of the roughout boot though, but I shall resist as my next boot purchase really should be a pair of the William Lennon B5 boot and I really don't need another pair of footwear at this point.

    How did you guys size the McClean? Nordstrom's said true to size, but I'm tempted to size half down just like I did with my first and only pair of Wolverine 1K.

    Thanks, bud. I ordered them the same size as all of my other Red Wings and Chippewas.

    The iron ranger fits narrower. Lengthwise the are similar. Off the box, my 1Ks were much more comfortable but red wings are better made IMHO.

    Those of you that haven't taken your ball and gone home by blocking me know that I've complained about my 1Ks because of the absolutely crappy chromexcel used on them.

    I have had a bad attitude about chromexcel due to these boots, but I learned something in another thread on this forum which leads me to believe that the chromexcel used on my right boot must have come from the shoulder or belly of an older cow. I shouldn't use it as an example to judge all chromexcel by.

    However, it speaks poorly of the venerated Horween tannery that they even produced this particular piece of junk leather. It probably should have been shrunken up and sold as "bullhide."

    I'm considering those Malvin and Joyce boots and giving chromexcel a second chance...

    Does everyone wear thicker socks with their boots? If so any recommendations?
