Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 221

post #3301 of 6491

Does anyone know if you are supposed to get insoles with these? Or does the leather foot bed somehow form to your foot?(If it does how long does it take?)

 

As of now the shoe insole feels pretty flat footed and my arches are hurting because they get no support (2 weeks of wear)

They form to your feet. How long it takes depends on how many times you wear them, and how much you walk in them. Run your hand around the inside, you should probably feel the beginnings of a foot imprint starting to form. At a certain point, it'll be a nice deep, perfectly molded imprint, with distinct toes and an arch.

That said, I don't really need much arch support. Some people prefer putting in their own insoles because they really need a lot of arch support. That's fine to do.

If you require something with arch support, check out these options.

I see thanks for the info I had my suspicion that it would do that with time but I was not sure

The toebox and a couple of other areas of my Wolverines are starting to get a bit worn. I applied two coats of Obenaufs LP using Crane's method about 6 months ago. A brush and buff isn't getting the marks out at this stage... Should I reapply Obenaufs or instead use a boot/mink oil to give them some nourishment?

Wolverine sent me two new lace sets, gratis. Just had to pay international shipping. fing02[1].gif

Try some more Obenaufs or boot oil. Likely won't get the marks out, but will nourish the leather.

Quick question for you guys: I scuffed the toe of brown 1K’s going up some stairs recently, and I was wondering the best way to help hide the scuff. Will a coating of Montana Pitch Bland help hide the blemish? Or should I hit the scuff with some brown polish first (I have the polish below), then apply the MPB?

Thanks!

Thanks! 

Did you already use a horsehair brush and work at it vigorously?

I think it'll fade in time but if brushing alone doesnt help conceal it just put a dab of polish on the spot and blend it in.

If you brush it, it will go away. CXL is a beautiful thing.

I haven't done anything with them yet... The scuff is pretty deep (no color left *about a pea sized area*). I'll try the hitting them with a horsehair brush tonight.

 

Thanks for the replies!

Just watch out that you don't brush too hard and remove the finish, there have been a few pics / posts in here about that.

Not sure if this new or not... but it looks like Wolverine introduced a new color called, Cordovan No. 8. They look pretty nice.
