wolverine 1000 mile chelsea boots

i’ve been looking for a pair of chelsea boots for the last couple of years.  i looked at frye (too trendy), r.m. williams (too pointy), blundstone (didn’t fit right), and several others before stumbling upon these gems this morning.  i never jumped on the wolverine 1000 mile bandwagon because i had a pair of red wings that looked exactly like them, but after trying these bad boys on, i regret that decision.  these boots are insanely comfortable as soon as you slip them on your feet (not like red wings).  i sized down .5 per wolverine’s recommendation, but might have been able to go down a full size.  either way i can’t wait to start wearing them.

    I bought those and wore them for a while, and they very quickly developed a super annoying squeak. Something wasn’t glued down right. Do yours do that?

      no squeaking yet, but i haven’t worn them out of the house. did you size down a .5 or a whole? i think i need to go down a whole size. they feel huge this afternoon.

    If they feel huge in the house, it will get super annoying in the street. You should get the right size now. I made that mistake once with a suede pair from CH. I love them, but they are squishy when I walk.

      good call. i returned them during lunch today and went a full size down from my measured size. thanks for the advice.
