I don't know if this has been addressed previously, my apologies if so.  I remember seeing several queries regarding replacement laces for 1000 Mile boots.  After an exhaustive web search that led nowhere I filled out a request for info from Wolverine's Concierge service on their website and received the following reply.  Don't know about you, but I find $10 a pair to be excessive for laces, even the best laces at my cobbler's aren't that much.  Guess beggars can't be...
I have for sale a brand new in box pair of Wolverine Burton Boots in size 9D.  I bought these with the intent to use them for a particular purpose and ended up purchasing a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile Austen Boots instead when they came up on sale.  I am selling these at a significant loss just to get rid of them.  Buyer pays $190 plus shipping.  Boots sell Retail for $270 and the best deal I can find on the web for these is $230.   Preferred Payment...

Have to agree with Brad-t, raise your budget just a bit.  You can find a pair of Wolverine Burtons for just over $200 and although not up to the quality of the rest of the 1000 mile line it does have a full goodyear welt and you can always replace the cheaper sole with a Vibram as I'm going to be doing with my recently purchased pair, have a look.
