bump. surely someone knows such awesome boots!
Do you guys know what boots these are? Website product info link is broken so I can't find out.    I really like the lack of defining platform at the heel and general sharpness, would be sweet boots for someone with big feet.     And here's a better look at them:   (Same brand seems to make low cut, shoe version:
Hey guys, I've had my 1000 miles for almost 4 months now. They were going great until about 1-2 months in when I noticed the right boot creasing considerably near the toe. I realise this has been posted in the thread before, but in my case the crease has been pushing into my right big toe knuckle and causing a stretching sort of pain in my joint and toe area of my foot, which can still be felt days afterwards.   I've been using shoe trees every day, when the problem...

The only other person who I can see that posted pics of their leather soles seemed to have problems due to them drying out more than anything else.  I'm thinking if wolverine suggests it, I'll still condition the sole. But only once, not four times haha
Hey guys, I purchased the black 1K's on amazon and am keenly awaiting them.  Wondering on a bit of clarification on the caring for the leather:   A lot of people have posted about using sno sheild and obenauf's LP. The thing is, I live in the driest state in Australia, it is about to be winter but it doesn't rain too often (or snow at all).   The wolverine video on youtube says to only apply leather conditioner to the outsole of the shoe when it's new. So should I...
