LOL. More boots and shoes to buy this fall. The Bradford is on my list already and those Stocktons are right up my alley.

Any idea where to get the Wolverine Wickhams? I can't find them anywhere.


Also I have a pair of montgomery's and the brown is not what I hoped for, a little darker than what I would like and not as rich looking as they could be. That being said they are good looking boots and very comfortable and I have received unsolicited compliments when wearing them. What are peoples experience using a lighter polish to get a different color and some antiqueing and depth to the leather?

Agreed. I tried these on yesterday, and I definitely would have preferred a richer color. Rust would have looked better I think ...

Still considering them, though.

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 have Montague's and love them....and so far have not had any problems (fingers crossed) and agree that I would also pay more to have it made in the US rather than China

I emailed Customer Service to suggest that they make a version of the Montague with an inside zipper instead of the chelsea stretch fabric to make them easier to get in and out of and also to carry more colors of Horween leather and/or waxed or oiled suede or offer a more rustic version

they said they were passing it along to the product development people, so who knows, but it would be great if they would consider a "Special Order" program for models in different color Horween leathers

Just ordered a pair of Addisons in black. I checked on the size at a local store that carries the line and found that my normal dress shoe size, 13, fit comfortably, and a 12 also fit but more snugly. Given availability I went with my normal size 13. Can't wait for them to arrive.

[cross post since this seems to be the more appropriate thread]

Just picked up these Wolverine 1000 Mile Cap-Toe Oxfords from Orvis. Looks like this particular style is exclusive to them.

Should have been patient. Ended up returning the 13s for 12s.

Sno sealed them tonight. Take some pics tomorrow.

For those who have added a custom sole (like Crane's Raptor), does it change how the boot fits (e.g., did it make it smaller)?  I have done this on shoes and it always seems to make them smaller.  I ask because I would like to size my new pair of 1000 Mile boots properly knowing that I will be putting some sort of rubber sole on (e. g., raptor, commander, dainite, etc.).  Thanks for any advice kindly given to a new new guy.

It is a little off-putting to buy "real american americana workwear" made somewhere other than the US.... I bet you chinese people would be pissed to buy a kimono or whatever ching-chongy clothes you wear made in Guatemala, too.

/racist

(Just to clarify, because some folks on the internet take shit too seriously, I'm asian and don't really care.. )

No change in size.

It's called irony. And I was being sarcastic. See Special Flower at the end.

Man, I don't keep up with that crap. All Chinese people know karate, too, right?
