Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 121

post #1801 of 7015

Im agreeing with you Crane's, so why don't you cool your jets. If anyone should appreciate my last post it should be you, since you are the one to answer all of these users endless questions and complaints about these boots not being 115% waterproof. I think they are great boots, and my point was to state that they are great boots, while also stating that some of the users on this thread complaining about "wet" and "cold" feet need to realize that these boots never once flaunted how warm and waterproof they were, and should maybe stop holding these boots to unreachable standards. They are great, durable boots that require maintenance like all good leather products do.

Here is a video, "specifically stating" they should be kept dry. It is a 1000 mile boot maintenance instructional video posted by none other than Wolverine themselves. Enjoy...

When I read "all users" and "no review" how am I supposed to take it? Aren't both these statements all inclusive? I'm also well aware of the video put out by Wolverine. If you're supposed to keep them dry then why would you bother to treat the sole and along the welt before first wearing?

Has anyone tried to darken the sole edge on these?  I'm looking for a little less contrast with the upper on my black pair.

Your right I should have clarified. I read through this thread 30 times before buying mine and your posts did help my decision. I was aiming my comment towards those who just aren't satisfied with the boot and it seems like they will never be, constantly complaining about this or that. They are boots, they never promised to fly, do you see what I'm saying. I wasn't directing my comment to you when I commented the first time. To me its cut and dry, maintain your boots, know their limits, wear accordingly.

Do these boots, particularly the Addison model, ever go on sale through any retailer?

I have a question:

 

 

 

 

 

Do these boots fly?

I feel you. They're certainly not purpose-made for inclement weather, but they're just versatile enough to handle it if you end up with them on during it.

 

I remember a blog post when 1K's were first debuting about a guy wearing them through snow and all... anyone know what I'm talking about?

I just got an original 1000 mile boots from an online store Japan, and I noticed that backstay on the right foot is placed incorrectly.

I asked them to exchange new pair or refund me, but it was refused becuse it is quite normal for US products, they say.

I posted pictures of my boots, anyone advise me these are normal or defective.

So are Wolverines better in cold wet climate than a Red Wing 875 ... Just wondering debating between the two..

post #1813 of 7015
I guess I always thought that my leather dress shoes got soaked because water saturated the sole. In reality, was that water coming through the welt?

I'm looking for a pair of snowy, icey weather boots and my choices are as followings:

1) Get some 1000-miles and have fun sno-sealing and oiling, do my best with them, and do my best to wear them out
2) Get some moulded, rubbery, duck-like things and wear them only on those wet days in the city.

#1 is starting to make sense.
post #1814 of 7015

I'm in the same boat..

Just debating between REd Wings and 1k boots from Wolverine..

Which ones will protect from snow and water better???
 

post #1815 of 7015

I'd personally never wear my 1k in the snow and slush. Its a high end dress boot..If its snowing or pouring rain, put on some llbean boots, completely waterproof, you can walk through anything, and wipe them down afterwards with a rag .
