Totally missed this. Are they having the warehouse liquidation sale like last time?
Good call I think. I've got the Brunel boots which are pretty much the same boot with a different sole and I don't think they stretch out much. I don't think boots should ever feel tight.
I asked Wolverine for a pair of replacement 1k waxed laces since my speedhooks are eating through them and they sent me some very short round laces. Told them about the mistake and they said they don't have any and pointed me towards www.therightlace.com. Only $18 for a pair! Where do you guys get yours? Looking for something similar to the brownish gunmetal color that comes with the cordovan no. 8s.
IIRC, Wolverine said that FS sold seconds. It is really a crapshoot though. I was at a store looking at "first quality" Wolverine 1ks and every single pair had problems. One had stitches running right off the edge of the welt, several had bull penis leather and another was entirely mismatched in height and color. There was also a pair that had a welt with completely random stitch widths, how does that happen?? I went through 4 pairs myself before finding something...
Email Nick directly, he's always quick to reply. Please post here when you find out, I'm curious to know why it's doing that. Might also explain what happened to these boots posted by Winterbourne:http://www.styleforum.net/t/163864/wolverine-1000-mile-boot-review/2880#post_6094862http://www.styleforum.net/t/163864/wolverine-1000-mile-boot-review/2880#post_6096230
What's going on there though? Is the leather skin peeling off? Defective chromexcel? I saw a post a while back in here where some guy ended up with a big dark rough spot on his tan 1ks where the top layer had prematurely worn off. This is way worse, looks like chipped paint. I would return / exchange if I were you.
Pretty much agree with everything you guys said though I honestly don't mind where something's made as long as it's made well. The sad thing is, Wolverine customer service doesn't give a shit about the complaints which means all the feedback they're getting is going nowhere. From what they told me, it's up to the retailer to inspect each pair. hyong91: if your tans are the same size, consider keeping them and putting in inserts or something. Mine were different sizes...
Is this just bad luck or is Wolverine churning out a lot of subpar boots? First pair, dented toe box and gouge in leather. Second pair, different sized boots. Third pair, mismatched colors. Exchange pair on hold, mismatched colors, mismatched height and glue filler on welt. I've been laughing about it and really patient but I think I'm done, will probably return the third pair and give up.
I thought of that except both right boots are reddish and both left boots are purplish.
I emailed Revolve about the right boot having more red dye in its finish and they went ahead and inspected a pair for exchange. Customer service informed me the pair they have on hold for me also has this problem plus a half inch difference in boot height and glue / filler used on the welt where a chunk was missing. Disappointing. Should I just keep this pair and slap on a bunch of cordovan shoe cream or will it even out anyways? I have a feeling conditioner would just...
