    To summarise, the size 8.5 felt a little too big, the size 8 were too tight, so you ordered a size 9, but think that the size 8 would work best ?

    Given you measure approx. 8.75 and your past experiences I'd think that 8.5 would be the way to go. A little too big is going to be better than too small as you can use thicker socks and/or insoles.

    To each his own. Wear them proudly my man!

    Your joke idea of parking a car on the 1000 Mile to get them to look like this may not be very far from the truth though. [​IMG]

    I looked at those about 10 times before deciding to go with rust instead.

    I'm gonna return these. Trying to get some Allen Edmonds on eBay for cheap. If I don't get them, I have to decide between AE Daltons and the Wolverine 1K (leaning towards the Wolverine since they'll be worn a lot, and the speed hooks will be very useful).

    Also considering some Thorogoods, but I'm not sure yet.

    I suspect an 8.5 or 9 would work best. going down basically one full size from your measured size has been very problematic with these boots. Of course this is predicated on the fact that your foot was properly measured with the device. I wrote an extensive article on how to get the size right with these boots.

    I almost bought the Dalton, but I have the 1000 mile Winchester's in brown so it seemed kinda redundant for me.

    Picked up some Bayfields for 142.50 so I'm pretty pumped. Gonna need the commando sole for the snow here so it works out.

    Still want to get some Wolverine 1000s in the future though if STP has their seconds on sale again.

    It's on now, they went up about 30 minutes ago, perhaps they'll restock. Plus tonight there was a 50% promotion, so $125 for seconds through STP, not too shabby.

    That would be amazing. Seems like the sale happens pretty frequently though, every few months. The AEs should be enough to get me through Winter hopefully. Not gonna be slogging through too much snow.

    I have a pair of the plain toe Wolverine 1000 mile boots and I recently purchased a pair of the Courtland boots (seconds from Sierra Trading Post). I purchased the same size as my plain toe size. The Courtland boots are really uncomfortable with a really high arch area. Is that normal? My plain toes, which I've had for a year, are much flatter.

    Maybe seven hours of wear. Beware STP seconds I guess.

    ROFL. At least STP will take them back. They have pretty good customer service. Maybe Wolverine will warranty them?

    Is this a repair a cobbler could handle fairly easily? I'd rather bug STP to reimburse me for a (maybe?) cheap and easy repair than send them back and wait for a refund/wait for them to be restocked. Unless it points to deeper issues with the 2nds or something...

    I didn't mean to laugh. Honest. But that "MOTHER $#@%" caught me off guard

    I am pretty sure it could be fixed easily, but I would try Wolverine first. I imagine they're still covered.

    That said, the people on Slickdeals raved about the 2nds. They rarely had any major blemishes.

    A cobbler can fix that pretty easily.

    With seconds it is a crap shoot as to what the problems can be - blemish to leather, bad stitching, weak batch of glue/cement, etc, etc.

    Seconds are supposed to be "cosmetic defects"

    That's way out of line for seconds
