I've stood in ankle deep water and mud all day without getting wet feet.

Hair dryer is a good trick. Thanks.

If you go to the Wolverine link below and click on the 1000 mile Original - what color are the boots shown on the right? Is that the brown or the rust?

Has to be brown, my rust pair does not look that cherry.

OK so there are clouds today so I have some good light for pics. Below are the Brown 1000 mile boots that I have been beating the shit outta for nearly a year now. I have hiked a couple of hundred miles in these things on a variety of trails and conditions, stood in muck mud and water for hours, in the rain repeatedly, wore them out and about and just kicking back, untold fishing adventures, walking my dog, kicking around in cow pastures. Yeah pretty much anything I would do has been done wearing these. All I did was brush them and soaked them down with boot oil. Got a nice patina going on.

So if you want a tough good looking boot these are the ticket. Beat them and with minimal care they will go wherever you go for a long time, No worries, no problems and I'm going to order myself some tan Ascots. I don't think the soles will last a thousand of my miles but hell I've had boots that cost just as much completely self destruct in less than a year.

^^^ The soles look like they held up well, I topy'd mine (for better or worse) since it's winter here 6 months out of the bloody year, but I'm starting to wonder if that was the best idea after all.

What do you use to maintain the leather? I use some Tana dubbin that I picked up from a local outdoor store, it seems to work but I'm always looking for new ideas.

Filson boot oil to keep the leather nourished and sno seal to waterproof them. The soles are very durable. It's the one part of this boot that had me worried. Not anymore though.

Found this article today about Horween Leather. They provide the cordovan leather for the Wolverine 1000 Mile 721LTD boots. Doesn't really say a lot, but the pictures are pretty bad ass.

Speaking of 721 LTDs, I'm wearing them right now. Earlier in the day I took pics while I unpacked them. Christmas in October. Gotta love it.

Is the sizing on the 721 LTD the same as on the 1000 Mile?
post #178 of 6600
I just picked up a pair of these boots, and I'm loving them so far. I'm a bit paranoid about caring for them though. I got some sno-seal when I got them, and applied it to them. (I didn't do the tongues because I wasn't thinking, so I gotta do that tonight).

I'm a bit confused on all the leather care products, I've read about a dozen things on caring for the leather on these boots. I read some things and after talking to a friend I picked up some montana pitch, conditioner and oil (separate, not the mixed one). How will I know when to apply these products though?

Could someone spell it out for a new-to-nice-shoes newbie?

Thanks.

My Brown 1000 Mile Boots came yesterday in the mail. Bought it with the 30% discount @ Revolve. It was a great deal for a pair of boots @ this quality. I got it in size 8.5D. My true size according to the measuring device in shoe stores is 9E since I have pretty wide feet. I wear 9D/8.5E in my dress shoes and 9.5 in Nike Sneakers. So I sized down 0.5 and they fit pretty comfortable with a thumbs-width of wiggle room. With boot socks and a full lacing it fits pretty snug. If you have medium width foot you'll probably want to size down a whole size. Some pictures: I plan to applying the Montana Pitch Blend Leather Dressing to it after it arrives in the mail. Will report back on the results. I'm also thinking about putting some sheepskin insoles in these, but the current insoles look too nice to cover up. Opinions?
