    Hey guys, where's the best site/store to get a pair of black original 1Ks in Toronto? Checked out CM, but can't use student discounts on 3rd party products and I don't see any deals online aside from revolve, but they don't have black or the sizing for others as well.

    You can check out Due West/Next Door, they had some.

    You can probably say what size in the black you're looking for, someone maybe be able to help you out.

    hey guys, wanted mention I've following this thread for some time.. recently i was able to try on the 1000mile, the Addison, and the Montgomery at a local shop. i had every intention going in to get the original but once on i wasn't sold on it. i ended up liking the Addison the most and unwilling to pay full retail i grabbed them online. i highly recommend everyone (if able) try some on first.

    i measure a 13(left) and very slightly over a 12.5(right), crazy i know. i generally wear a 12 or 13 in most shoes. both addison and the original fit almost identical after trying the 11.5, 12, and 13. i went with a 12. it fit best overall, not tight across the top, and with proper heel placement and movement. they will also allow for thicker socks if needed.
    also note i found the toe on the original and addison to be quite roomie, so if not used to this style boot it may feel awkward..

    Does anyone know how the Wesleys fit? I have the standard 1Ks in 8.5, I assume these will fit the same?

    I almost got a pair of those myself (they were on sale about half off) but, none in my size at the time.

    That'd be my guess. I wear a 10 in Wesleys, 10.5 in chucks, 10 in Red Wing GTs, but I haven't tried the standard 1k boots. I take a 9.5 in the Addison model, though.

    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?

    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.

    thanks!

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