Rode my bike to work in the rain today, like every day. Don't need no rubber soles!

These are not dress shoes and are not cared for in the same way. With that said Mario has gotten his boots to really shine up well. If I remember right his method involves a boatload of water brushing and not much else.


Reason I asked is because the Wolverine video shows them using shoe cream and shoe polish for scuffs so I thought that was a proper treatment for scrapes/scuffs.  I already have Filson boot oil (at your recommendation) and have used it on a pair of cowboy boots I beat to hell hunting last weekend and I like the results so far.  Thanks for all the info.

Well the video is a bit dated. The brand new expensive banker's bag care kit contains what I believe to be MPB's oil and proofer in relabeled containers. Read the labels on the products in the care kit and MPB's label.

Any questions on why Wolverine recommends MPB?

Crappy cell-phone pic; wet spots on floor are from the rain run-off:

American boots for my American motorcycle. Also have my American-made Elkskin gloves from Fox Creek Leather. Just need to keep saving for a Langlitz jacket... I generally go for my 1K's for riding, sometimes the LTD 721's.

anyone know what model 1000 mile these are? They have the LTD series side stitching, but the toecap is nothing like the 2 LTD models. Also, they seem a bit too dark?

post #2395 of 6513

would you guys recommend the MPB oil or obenauf oil?

this looks similar to the wolverine 1000 mile Krause boot in black?

I'd just wear them and watch a natural patina develop.

Thanks for the advice the past day. I went over the Dublin Kraue's with the leather conditioner I had on hand:



It didn't really give it the rich bold color of the other "rust" 1000 mile boots I've seen here that I'm striving for:



Should I move onto Obernauf's LP next? Mink Oil?

Kiwi, water and brushing.

post #2399 of 6513

does anyone know how many oz the leather that they use for these boots is?

post #2400 of 6513

I don't know if it's come up, but I went to try on a pair of the 1Ks, and they ran huge. I'm normally a size 12, and it felt like I was wearing a 14 when I tried them on. I ended up having to try a 10.5 in order to get a pair that fit normally. Just figured I'd let people know in case they were ordering on line. I would definitely recommend trying before you buy.
