    Realized I could do this myself. I think I like the roy boot better--but not sure if it's worth the additional cost of $125 plus.

    I think the Roy is definitely worth the extra $$$....but the question is can you handle the many month wait for them. If so, go that way. If not the 1000 mile boot is a great alternative.

    Leffot is taking pre-orders, a 20% deposit is required.

    They expect them to arrive in May.

    Go with the Roy Boot. The month or so of waiting and the $125 will make you happier in the long, long term. Also the crepe sole is secretly the best boot sole out there (unless we're talking hiking boots, which these really aren't). You get just enough traction but without the one-inch-of-rubber look of the commando sole.

    We can get any of the boots in the line.

    I thought you guys had issues with them when the 1000 Mile first came out. Have those been resolved?

    We are a Wolverine dealer and can get them. I'll just leave it at that.

    Does anyone have sizing advice on these? I am an 11D in most dress shoes/boots.

    for sizing im typically a 13 in shoes and had to buy a 12... They fit a size to half size large.

    Also they are super comfy

    Damn, I was hoping it was gonna be more straightforward than that [​IMG]

    I guess I'll just go with a 10.5 and see how it works out.

    BTW, the overall profile of the boot looks amazing in your pic.

    I would order multiple pairs and return the ones that don't fit. I did that a while ago (wound up just buying some Chromexcel Indys instead), and needed to size down from my usual 10.5D to a 9.5D for the 1000 Mile to fit. 10 was too big. I take a 10D in Indys (Trubalance).

    Wow, so even after sizing down 1 full size they still fit comfortably? They're not tight at all?

    Well, I tried them around on carpet and then sent them back because I just liked the Chromexcel Indys better, so I can't comment on wear. But yeah, it was fine sizing down a whole size. Again, I'd order multiple sizes and try them out/send them back if you don't absolutely trust whoever's going to fit you. Are you buying them locally or ordering them from somewhere? Shoemart has all sizes in stock, it looks like, and they have a great return policy and free shipping (one way, not for return shipping, which you have to pay for): http://www.theshoemart.com/wolverine...1000_mile.html

    I was gonna get them from Revolve, with the first time customer discount I can get them for $227 shipped.

    I'm trying to like the Indy's, but I just can't get into the moc toe. The 1000 mile works a lot better with my style. Maybe the Indy's will grow on me, but right now I'm not feelin' them.

    Most people love the indy's, but they're definately not for everyone. It's okay not to like them.

    I don't own the 1000 mile, but from pics I've seen it looks amazing when still quite new. That pic by phoenix looks great, and I saw a pair in the wild yesterday with 6 weeks of wear that looked truly incredible. But unlike other boots I'm not sure I like them as much when the toe starts breaking in and losing its structure. It looks like there is more leather up front than I would like in a plain toe. Judging from pics I've seen, the toe eventually softens into a large, unsightly ripple.

    Good to know, looks like its gonna be a size 10 for me.

It looks like there is more leather up front than I would like in a plain toe, and from the pics of worn 1000 miles that I've seen, there is always a large, unsightly ripple.

    All of which is deeply qualified by the fact that I've never owned a pair myself.


    Stuff like that doesn't bother me as much, but some of the worn Indy pics I've seen have some unsightly creases as well. I'm guessing it's more fit related.
