    so you went 1 full size down from your brannock size? considering barrie lasts are usually .5 down
    Assuming the nike sizing is your brannock size

    I did. And yep, 10 is my brannock.

    My buddy is an 11 and tried on some 1K Addisons in 10 today and said they fit perfect.

    Others will say .5 down is more appropriate.

    YRMV.

    In any case, I certainly wouldn't order any Wolverines in my brannock/"TTS", lol.

    hey quick question for anyone who owns these, is the fit with these the same as it is with the regular 1000 miles? i read that the new 744 are true to size, and i dont know if the 721 and the 744 are the same.

    love em! color is awesome, the fit is odd though, my left foot is at least a size/half size smaller than my right, so its knocking around while my right foot is snug. i got a decent deal on them and i couldnt be happier with them for the price. im just dreading my first scuff though. there is one little thing thats driving my o.c.d. sense off the chart, just one tiny scratch in the leather here:

    i know its nothing, but it will keep catching my eye till i put more wear on them

    cranes, did you treat these before your first wear? i havent taken them outside yet, im debating treating them or not.

    They look good. What was your finding on sizing vs regular 1000 mile boots?

    about the same, if not slightly smaller. i have a 8.5 brown 1000 miles, and they fit like 9.5, these fit somewhere between 9-9.5

    I've found the same thing. I ordered the 721 in the same size as my regular 1000k's but the 721's seem to fit more snugly despite the measurements on both being identical. Perhaps a case of cordovan being more rigid?

    Yep. I treat everything before they hit the streets. About a zillion posts ago I explained why I do this.

    It's shell cordovan, bro. That scuff will brush/rub out super easy.

    I have the 721s in a size 9 and I have the original 1000 miles in a size 9. They both fit me perfectly. My understanding is that the 744 was built on the same last as the 721, so it is going to be the exact same size. They should, therefore, also be the same size as the original 1000 miles.

    I emailed Leffot and they said it is a different last and that it fits true to size and to not size down like the other Wolverine boots, 1K or 721LTD.

    Anyone else finding the first few pics of the 744s a bit underwhelming? Hoping they're better looking in person

    Agreed. They look very feminine to my eyes.

    I need to see better pictures of this cigar colour.

    From what I've seen, I'd rather spend LESS and get some Alden shell captoes.

    Though, I do love my 721's, and if I didn't own them already, I'd be more motivated to look at 744's.

    Agree. I like the style of 721, but the 744... just don't do it for me. I'd rather pay less and some Alden shell cordovan captoe.

    Don't know what to think yet ... It depends a lot of the picture!
    On LeoSquare Mens's Facebook page, they look quite nice, but on NeedSupply, I find it quite hideous.

    Here is a bonus pic, from a dealer who revealed a picture too soon :

    I really like the dark leather soles and dark welt stitching on these LTD's (and the 721's). And I think the colour and style are great.

    Due to the price, if I felt I could wear these as more than just a casual boot Id be getting them.
    Wardrobe needs (staple) dress shoes atm, and unfortunately I cant see these working :(...

    Saw photos of the 744's on you-know-who's facebook. I retract my prior statements - they look great!
