Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 220

post #3286 of 6650
I'm impressed the sole and contrast stitching have held up so much. The stitching on mine is the same colour as the upper now which you is a shame... I liked the contrast look.

Nice pair! Cue half this thread rushing to buy saphir and kiwi neutral...

I ordered a pair of rust 1000 Miles from Cranes and a pair or RW Beckmans from Zappos. Preferred the fit and look of the Wolverines, so sent the RW back. I've only wore them a few times, but love them. I had intended to put a rubber half sole on them right away, but may just wear as is for a while. Great boots.

When it's time to resole your 1000 mile boots what course do you take?

post #3290 of 6650

Does any one know if it is ok to get leather wet? (like light drizzle?)

I have not put any Obenauf's LP or SnowSeal as I live in Texas so the weather is usually dry.

But rain does happen once in a while...

I get them resoled. Seriously though, what are you asking here ?

Resoled with leather, with leather + topy, with vibram, with ... ?

Should be OK. The leather does contain oils when they are fresh from the factory.

Even if the leather does not get wet there are distinct benefits to using something like Obenaufs to prevent the leather from drying out in heat, dust and dirt. I live in California and use Obenaufs LP a few times a year on all my boots.

I wish I knew. All the local cobblers have hit-or-miss reviews on yelp, and everything online for mail-ins is spendy. =/

Rain won't harm leather.

They are rust. I guess the shade was throwing off my wb as they appear more #8 CXL toned. The bottom, top-view pic is pretty accurate in color. The Saphir darkened them up, and then I used Brown Kiwi on the toe.

Has anyone other than Kevinl had there boots resoled? I'm think of going commando.

Bear in mind that a lot of cobblers get bad reviews from people who give them shitty shoes and expect miracles. My cobbler says he turns people away all the time, because they want crappy Kenneth Coles or something resoled, or the leather fixed up, and he has to tell them buy better shoes, there's nothing he can do. Of course there are other cobblers who are just really shitty, like a horror-story resoling post that was on Reddit last week here.

Go to the cobbler, and ask if you can see an example of his resoling work. You should be able to tell pretty quickly how good he is, he should be able to properly discuss the soles and heels he wants to use. If you ask to see your choices, he should be able to let you know which ones you want. It doesn't need to be a masterpiece, it just needs to be properly stitched, properly sanded and edged.

Wow, that's a great color you got out of Rust. Will have to try your method on my own Rust 1Ks as I'm loving the sheen you have.

Oops, I see that I said I used Neutral and then said I used Brown. To clarify, when they were new I used brown, and the color pretty much stayed on the toe. Then recently I used Neutral.

 

Thanks for compliments :D

 

Honestly, as Crane has mentioned, just giving them a really good brushing makes them look great - CXL loves being brushed as much as shell, and moreso than typical calf shoes in my experience.

Dear all,

 

Help!! I dunno what caused the cut on my boot, but is there anything that I should do right now? I noticed this cut while I was conditioning it. The last time I maintained it was a month ago but I didn't notice anything odd. This is my first pair of boots :(
