I only sno sealed my boots so far, haven't oiled them yet, so I'm guessing I should definitely pick some up soon. What brand would be the best without any of the bad stuff? Filson boot oil good? Anything better/cheaper? Not really trying to skimp, but just weighing out my options. Thanks!!!

edit: sorry guys, I'm terrible at searching... found some recommendations in the thread, so I guess I'll be going with the filson boot oil!

Hi guys. I recently purchase a worn pair of 1000 miles.
I was reading through on how to clean and care for these but still need some help with the steps:
- lexol leather cleaner with a sponge let dry
- apply obenauf leather oil.
- what do you apply this with?
- does this leather oil darken the color?
- can I use AE leather lotion in lieu of obenauf oil?

If I do not want to use snow seal would the above steps all I need to do to maintain the boots?

Obenauf's leather oil comes with an applicator cap and you can apply the oil with it. Or you can pour a little bit onto a dry piece of cloth and the wipe in onto your boots.

The oil darken the color very slightly, and you won't notice the color difference after a day or two when the oil is completely soaked. For conditioning the leather, oil works better than other products in my opinion. Wait a day or two for the oil to sink in completely and then apply other leather lotion or water proofing products or polishing products if you want.

Anyone in Toronto put any Vibram soles on their boots? Where'd you do it?

I just left my boots to a cobbler today to put on the Vibram half sole. It costs me $45. I have been to other cobblers which are charging me $35 to put on the half soles but they are not the Vibram. I am not sure whether the one I went with will do a good job yet. Will find out in a few days.

 

BTW, the cobbler is in Hillcrest mall on Yonge and 16th Ave.

Hey all. So I'm pretty sure I just skimmed / read 130 pages of this thread. Good lord. 

 

 

That said: Why hasn't the Courtland been mentioned? 

 

I'm new here, and found this thread by searching trying to decide if these boots are going to handle the PacNW. I ultimately decided that yes, they can, properly treated, and worst case half soled. That said, why hasn't anyone mentioned the Courtland? 

 

Like I said, I'm new here, but it pretty much seems like the original 1K + a half sole, right? 

 

http://www.wolverine.com/US/en-US/Product.mvc.aspx/29767M/0/Mens/Courtland-1000-Mile-Boot?dimensions=0

 

 

That said, I do wish it was available in rust. Thoughts though?

The Courtland was just released this season, so not many have bought it yet. And personally I think the original plain toe looks the best..

I use Obenauf's oil, they sell it at Sportman's warehouse for $16.99

Will this waxy/tacky finish wear off eventually if I keep wearing them? or would I have to actually remove the sno seal somehow? I actually dont care that much about it, but just wondering.

I'm a satisfied user of Montana Pitch. I learned of the stuff from the "how-to-treat-your boots" video on the Wolverine website. I've never used sno-seal and have not had an issue with wet feet in the winter time.

Wolverine 1000s after one year of frequent wearing. Holding up well, I think.
