I saw the Ltd Edition Cordovan in the flesh yesterday. Very pricey. Very beautiful.

Does anyone have experience with the Wolverine Darby boot? I've been looking for a cap toe boot, something a little less clunky than the 1000 mile. I'm just curious about the construction and quality of the leather since it's $100 less than the 1K. What accounts for the difference in price? The leather does look a little more rugged/unpolished, which I don't like. Also not too crazy about the stitching.

I haven't seen the Darby, but if it's anything like the Montague, the construction and outsole are not nearly as well constructed as the Original 1000 Mile.

They both have a description of having a "leather and rubber outsole", and having seen and felt the Montague in person, it was shockingly cheap. I didn't see where it was made, but after picking it up, it reeked of being a cheap shoe made in China.

The "leather and rubber outsole" is mostly rubber, as far as I could tell. Compared to both the Original 1000 Mile and GT Traveller, the Montague felt like a disposable $100 pair of shoes.

Thanks raph, I figured that might be the case. I wish they sold a 1k with a cap toe.

The rubber sole on the heel of my ascots is coming apart from the remainder of the heel. Is this something wolverine would fix with a replacement or am I just going to have to hope my tailor can fix it?

Anyone do a boot tuck into Ascots? I have some brown 1000 Miles which are OK but a little short... thinking of getting some Ascots to tuck into. Thoughts?
post #892 of 950
^^^ Sorry, but boot tuck is terrible. I don't think it will look good with ascots either.
post #893 of 950
I wish they put recessed stitching on the bottom of the sole. Contemplating putting some vibram soles. Thoughts?
post #894 of 950

diabetes: I have a pair of Ascots, which I've had for about 3 months or so, and I love them. While I do think that the price difference between the Ascot and the 1000 Mile boot is warranted, due to higher quality leather and American construction of the 1000 Mile, I really love the profile, fit, and shape of the Ascot. For the price, it's definitely worth it...especially if you can get it at a discount. As for fit, I wear a 10 in Clarks DB's, and my Ascots are a 9.5. I probably could have gone with a 10, but the 9.5 is in no way uncomfortable on my foot. Hope that helps!

Can anyone comment as to whether or not this is normal wear-and-tear? If not, any thoughts on if I can send them back to Wolverine for repair? Thanks!

Sadly it is normal for a Made in China boot, I took mine to a wolverine store and they replaced them! BUt now the new pair has a god awful squeak when i walk or when I am holding it and press in the middle of the sole...it is a shame, such beautiful boots, decent quality, but not for $250. I'd musch rather pay the $70 bucks more for a US built shoe, then be pissed at the shoddy workmanship (machine/child) of the MIC shoe...

I contacted Wolverine and they said that its not normal wear-and-tear and they replaced the boots for free. Hopefully the second pair is better.

Just got my 1000 miles in a size 7.5, but they're slightly too big. Anyone have a 7 that's too small for them? Want to trade? I've worn them outside, so can't return them.
post #900 of 950
Just a general comment, even though oiling darkened my 1Ks too much I still love them. Easily the most comfy boots I've ever had and they seem to get more comfortable with time. About as comfortable as a sneaker TBH Do kinda wish they made something with an Ascot height shaft in 1KM quality though (in Rust of course!) Just some random thoughts.
