    Very nice. If I had those instead of my standard Rust 1Ks, I could do away with the constant boot pampering (LP, brushing, reno, brushing...).

    I just got my 1k today! Fit like a glove.

    It was a nice walk to school and back, however i noticed that the contact with the pavement has already worked on the front half of the boots and started on the stitching.. so i was wondering if I should add sole to the front half to prevent the stitching from breaking apart?

    can any shoe shop do this? how much will it cost?

    Any cobbler can apply a rubber topy half-sole. Costs about $30 usually.

    Do it. Just make sure they use a good half sole (pref. Vibram). I had half soles put on mine just after the stitching started to fray ever so slightly (about a month of owning them). I stride much more confidently in them now. You can always take off the half soles (sort of...). But if you mess up your real soles, it's an expensive trip to Wolverine HQ.

    i guess it wont be a problem if the top half is already dirty and worn?

    nope, it'll be fine. I wore mine for a few weeks before taking them in to get a topy applied. any shoe shop can do it, but if you're having trouble finding one in your area, call a store that sells nice shoes and they should be able to recommend a place.

    Where are you getting that revolve has them for ~240? I doubt you'll be able to find them under 300.

    also could anyone tell me the insole size in cm/inches for the original 1k miles in sizes 8 and 8 1/2? i found out that size 9s are 11 1/2 inches, which is about 1 1/2 inches too big.

    not sure whether i should get 8 or 8 1/2 now :/

    unionmade had the rockfords for $220 a couple weeks ago, I bought a pair online a few minutes after they went on sale, and the company screwed me over. They refused to send me my boots... They kept saying they would "probably be sent out tomorrow", then they emailed me saying they don't have them anymore...

    Give Unionmade a break. They're a small outfit and usually do a damn fine job.

    In store they've always been good. But taking over a week to ship and not having stock of most of the order you placed is not really acceptable given the size of your stores. They aren't that small of an outfit with 3 stores.

    The service seems a bit spotty there. I've had sales guys who were very helpful and friendly but once I was in there and they guy had something up his butt or something because he acted like a total jerkhole. He actually shocked some of the other patrons in the store with how rude he was being.

    Why would I give Unionmade a break? There are plenty of places to shop. I love their selection of Aldens and a lot of the other clothes they stock, but there is no way in hell I'll ever try to purchase anything from them again.

    So before I wear my 1000 miles out, is it recommended to add a topy or a half vibram sole over the stock leather sole?

    Thanks
