Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 204

post #3046 of 6500

Yes.  I've had them offer twice, but only got the label when I took them up on the offer the first time.  Ask whoever the current customer service person is.  They have also offered to pay the repair bill when the stitching on one of my boots went loose... I just cut the thread off and didn't worry much about it after that.

Seems like everyone is looking for a reason to bitch and whine. They're work boots for fucks sakes, a couple of scratches won't break it.

I'm thinking about ordering some of these. I would like a slightly dressier boot than what I wear now, but want some level of comfort. I would prefer US made for sure, maybe these or Red Wing or??

I've been wearing Australian boots for years and they are supremely comfortable, if a bit funny looking.

They fit amazingly in almost every way. No hot spots, my heal stays locked down.... but my toes dont touch the front at all, even when I kick something. This has led to me kicking stairs by accident, which has scuffed up the front. Does anyone else find this with these shoes or should I have gone down a half size? I've never had shoes that my toes cant reach the front even when stretching the toes.

Your toes should never touch the front of your shoes/boots (unless you're buying something like climbing shoes or Vibram 5 Fingers). It's always good to have a bit of wiggle room... That's why places like REI have mock downward slopes set up in their stores. You need to make sure that your toes won't be banging into the front of your boots on a hike. If your toes are almost touching the front when you push forward/kick something, and your heel isn't lifting, they're fine. Standing straight with your heel kicked backed, you should have a thumbs width (or a little less) of room up front.

day 1 of 1000 mile boots...feel amazing...might be a half size too big but they were the last in stock I can get some insoles if needed, but no slipping in the heel yet. Few creases but they wont matter to me, I'm just glad I have a comfortable boot to walk to work with.

I wear a 9.5 in converse also and I just tried on a w1k in a 9 yesterday and it felt ok. A little loose but I think I could make it work with an insole. They didn't have the 8.5 in stock so I'm waiting for those to come in so I can try them on. I just got a pair of Red Wing Iron Rangers in 8.5 and they are a little snug on the sides but they will stretch with wear. I'm mentioning that because I've heard that w1k fit almost the same as Iron Rangers so I'll probably end up buying the 8.5. I live in Los Angeles so I will wear them with thin black socks most of the time so they should fit fine after they're broken in.

My rust 1k Miles somehow ended up with dull, grayish spots in a couple places. I was just wearing them around town and they were properly treated with Filson Boot Oil and Obenauf's Leather Protector. I might have been too agressive when I brushed them up with a horsehair brush and a little water, but I would have expected them to hold up to that.

 

Any recommendations to help the problem? I tried cleaning them up with some Lexol cleaner. Should I apply a ton of layers of oil to that area?

NO don't do that.
It's a pull-up leather so you will get dull spots like this in areas that abrade.
You could try bringing some color back in with a cream polish.
But generally, it's just the way the boot will wear.

Are you guys using a wire brush or something? When you brush them use light pressure.

I don't think it was the horsehair brush, just mentioned it as another guy had a similar problem and said it was his brushing. I occasionally brushed them with a little water, and I think one spot in particular developed from regular wear.
