Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 9

post #121 of 7016
Has anyone ordered a pair of the Wolverine Lindens? They look pretty good Basically I want a cheaper version of the Alden plain toe blucher and these are looking like possibilities. Are they bulky in the toe? The Aldens are blobby but nice looking, Im worried these might be bulky and more work looking than I want.

From leffot "This coming fall the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection is unveiling a limited edition boot under the imprint 721LTD (named as a nod to the original 1000 Mile boot reference number). They will be built in the USA in Horween shell cordovan. That’s all we’ll say for now other than we have seen the sample and can tell you they are going to be very sweet. To celebrate the release Wolverine has commissioned a short film series to document the process of creating the 721LTD boots. The first film profiles America’s finest tannery, Horween Leather Co. in Chicago. Horween takes us through the process of making the shell cordovan that will be supplied to the 721LTD boots. Because of our special relationship with Wolverine, Leffot has been selected as one of a handful of retailers to stock this exceptional boot. We will continue to keep you updated of all the latest developments including the next chapter in this series. We can hardly wait for fall."

That is amazingly ugly. Amazingly.

Leffot stated mid to late july on the Addison, any word yet?

This may be the dumbest question in the world but needs to be asked nonetheless: Are you supposed to wear the 1000 mile boot with the leather tab attached to the shoe laces? I am referring to the one that comes attached to one of the shoes. Obviously if it were made of plastic/paper I would throw it away, but I just want to make sure it's not there for a functional reason.

you can get rid of it

I received my pair of 1000 Mile boots in black last week. The boots fit like a glove. I will post more comments and pics once I start abusing them this F/W.

Sort of an ad hoc question, but can anyone who has worn both 1000 mile and RW Iron Ranger comment on the relative fit? I sized down .5 to 9 for the IRs.. should I do the same for 1000 mile, or go a whole size down to 8.5?

I don't think they are that bad, depends what you are looking for, but probably can do better.

I do think the Winston looks better.

Agreed. I like a shoe with some contrast, but that's the wrong kind of contrast.

^^^Too bad, that could have promise.

Either as a chukka with a leather sole, or as a shoe with the red sole and some brogue-ing. But the chukka+red sole+wing tip is too much IMHO.
