(Bad quality control). Just 5 days of use. I was liking them until today, spotted bad seams on the back of one boot, like a tear. Really disappointed for these almost $200 wolverines.

Excellent fit. Slips on very easily. Not too much arch support, but enough to work outside all day in them. Waterproof, but breathes well. Very good purchase.

had to go down a half size for a good fit. really like the style and the boots are super comfortable.
Zappos Reviewer on May 15, 2021
Run at *least* a half size larger than marked, if not a full size. They’re quite wide, too, which is probably a good thing for this style of boot. The insoles feel really comfortable, although lacking in arch support if you have higher arches. The insulation is great, they feel nice and warm, and the soles are fairly flexible but stiff enough for work. I wish the sizing was more accurate, or I’d have kept them - they’re a heck of a boot for a reasonable price.

Bought these when looking for a warm boot with great looks. But after trying them on, they’re clunky... almost like walking in ski boots. Unfortunately I will be returning these.

This is a great knock-around boot. Fit is great and runs true to size. Not a "style" item, Just a rather rugged looking and feeling boot.

I wear 12 in Nike, with that, go a whole size smaller. After 3 or 4 days of wearing for 3 to 4 hours, they are super comfortable. Do yourself a favor and get shoe trees. Zappos customer service can't be beat!

I wear a 12 in Nike running shoes and have wide feet so as a gauge, go a full size down from that for the 1000 miles.

I just received these boots. They are extremely comfortable and stylish. They have an inner lining which makes them keep out wind and snow.

I’ve only worn them only once, in 30 degree weather with light snow. They definitely kept my feet dry and warm. Almost too warm for temperatures over 30 degrees. Not stylish, I bought them to keep my feet warm and dry, so far, so good. F.Y.I. I had to return size 10 1/2, which I usually wear, for size 11.

These are the nicest and greatest winter boots I’ve had, they fit great, feel great, right out of the box, they look great are very well made, warm and go on and off with ease, and are great for walking in the snow, a bit pricey but worth every cent, buy em and love em!

These shoes are fantastic. I've never owned a really high quality pair of shoes before, but these are well on their way to becoming my favorite shoes ever. Didn't take long for them to "break in", though they were comfortable from day one. I've been wearing them for a little more than a week and they're getting more comfortable every day. I've take a few photos of them... uncleaned, unpolished, after wearing them every day for over a week. The soles scuff up pretty fast and are a bit slippery, but I think I'm going to get vibram half soles done on them for the extra grip and to help them last longer between sole changes. Definitely worth what I paid for them, especially since I'm planning on wearing them for years.

I had read that these were about one size too large but decided to see. They were correct. I wear a perfect 8 in all my shoes, but these felt like galoshes, and that's with a pair of thick Smartwool socks. The shoes are beautiful however.

Great boots. But choose wisely your size as they run a full size bigger. I have worn 11.5 in every pair of everything I’ve owned. 10.5 was the perfect fit for me in these boots
Zappos Reviewer on January 26, 2020
Great looking boots, as other reviewers have said, classic style boot that looks terrific with jeans. For me, took some time to break in, especially at the heel, but a little wear and compressing of the leather and they are feeling comfortable. I'm almost always a 10.5 in everything, and I am usually very hesitant to take other review recommendations to change sizes, but the 10.5 was too big for me. Exchanged for a 10 and it fits better.
Zappos Reviewer on October 18, 2019
Like the other 1000-milers, these run a bit large (I normally wear 11-11.5...ordered a 10.5 and they fit great!), so order down. Overall, these are well made and look great. Good with jeans and you can probably pull them off as business casual as well. Great boots!
Zappos Reviewer on October 16, 2019
These run large. I usually wear size 11 or 11.5, but ordered a 10.5 and they fit perfectly.
Zappos Reviewer on October 08, 2019
As stated in other reviews these boots really do hark back to a different time. They are VERY heavy and well made, the leather is this and hard and does require a lot of wearing in. I have been wearing and treating my boots for a over 3 years and they are not really showing signs of real wear! I have had some rubber sole addons put on because my knees and ankles ache so I like extra cushioning in my shoes. Also, I never wear heavy socks so I bought them half a size smaller because I was told that they would stretch out, liking my boots slightly on the loose size I wish I hadn't and instead gone with my normal size which is a 12. If you are more of a 'fashionista' and like to change your footwear and to stay on trend then don't buy these because they will be around for years with the proper care; I like that kind of commitment in a product so I am into them. I treated mine with a natural water proofer, I think it was beeswax, anyway it was recommended by the manufacturer and they are great in the rain and snow, though I wouldn't wear them all day in either as they have no lining so you will get cold feet eventually, which brings us back to socks. Sorry to waffle but they are a great investment. Classic, go with anything. I did break one of the 'eyes' but took it to a repair shop and it was replaced easily.

half size down wasn't enough and full size down was out of stock, so I found these elsewhere in my size. They are quite comfortable from day one. the laces stay tied. they look good with jeans or chinos.
Todd from Arizona on March 16, 2019
I ordered a full size smaller and they fit great.

If you’re looking for an old-school boot, with the feel of an old-school boot...this is it. An insole of any kind is not existent. Feels like walking on wood. Some reviewers claim they walk all day in these, I have no idea how. At the end of the day it’s a decent looking boot, seems to be made well. However, I definitely feel as though I didn’t get my money’s worth!! Would not buy again and definitely see these getting dust on them in the closet or donated to Goodwill. For the folks who say “just get an insole”...At this price point it should’ve came with the friggin shoe!
Zappos Reviewer on January 16, 2019
These are great looking boots. They definitely run large. My husband wears 11.5-12 in all shoes but we had to return the 11.5 for an 11. Even the 11 feels just a tad big for him but they look so good we decided to keep them. They are more dressy boots than a work boot. The sole is smooth and probably isn’t great with traction but again, these are great looking shoes!
Zappos Reviewer on January 06, 2019
Just received my much anticipated order. I listened to other reviews and ordered a half size smaller. Guess what? They're too small!! Like so small that I cant even slide my foot into it. Now I get to return them. Yay for me.
Zappos Reviewer on January 04, 2019
I absolutely love these boots! They are expensive, but consider it an investment. If taken care of, they'll last for years. Style: Think about it, these boots have been around since the early 20th century, over 100 years. They'll never go out of style. They look great with jeans or chinos. I'd recommend a jean or chino with a slim opening, that way it shows off more of the boot. Fit: They do run large, so order a size or two smaller than your sneaker. For example, I wear a size 14 in sneakers, but size 12 in these boots is perfect. Comfort: It takes a few days for the boots to "break in," but once they do, they're extremely comfortable and warm. I like to wear thick, wool socks with them. Perfect for the Fall, Winter, and early Spring. Inspect: Inspect these boots before wearing. On the first pair I ordered, I ran into a quality control issue where the eyelits didn't line up on the right boot. They were off by 1/2"! It's not something I was willing to live with for the next several years, so I returned them for another pair. The second pair were fine. Do: Get some cedar shoes trees to maintain the boots form and to keep them dry. Also, invest in a leather conditioner and protectant. For brands and advice, there are plenty of videos online. Hope this review helps! I did look at several other brands and styles, but decided on the 1000 Mile Boots. They're timeless and I plan to wear them for many years.

Great looking, well-made boots. It's been a while since I broke in a "real" pair of boots, so I hope they get more comfortable soon!
