Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 230

post #3436 of 6773

Looks like everybody got their orders from STP today

 

I like the color better than the pictures online. My pair had some scuffs which stands out more with the lighter color, not sure if Im going to keep them or not.

^Mine look similar. Love 'em. The scuffs are nothing, you'll have way more after a wearing or two. Lot's more styles available on STP now. The only one that really makes me tempted is the one with the canvas and the natty CXL, but they're out of my size so c'est la vie. Don't need *yet* another pair of boots.

You obviously didn't read this thread because if you did you would know in detail what I do, how and when. Other people have done likewise with products and routines that work for the way they wear their boots. So what's your version of leather care? Baby them and worry about every little nick and scuff?

Haha, I didn't mean to purposely treat it like crap. I apologize for my lack of elaboration. I'm trying to inquire whether a simple application of filson oil will suffice for normal city wear.

They are a half size larger then my Alden's, 10.5 vs 10, and have the same sole length. For reference I wear a 11 in Allen Edmonds and sized down a full size for my Alden boots.

Those scuffs are nothing and they are unlikely "flaws" that make the boots a pair of second. Brush the boots rigorously with a horsehair brush for 30 seconds and they won't be noticeably. That being said, CXL can be scuffed pretty easily (but they are very durable, I'm saying this so that you can stop wasting time polishing them like a pair of dress boots as the shine won't last long) and even a pair of first would have these "scuffs" out of the box.

It will suffice normal city wear. One doesn't need to worry too much about "water proofing" the boots. The boots have a certain degree of water resistancy by themselves, and boot oil will help a bit too. Unless you expect the boots to see a lot of rain (e.g. you are a storm chaser) or you live in a city where it snows all the time. Light rain won't hurt the boot much and if they are soaked in water, air dry them and re-oil them afterwards.

Mine actually have obvious seconds defects, as the welting has a couple holes without stitches. That's the best kind of seconds, IMHO, as it's totally superficial, no structural or real deficient.

Extra holes are pretty standard even for first quality boots from Wolverine.

Really... well, then, I'm at a loss.

Is the following an issue?  Just at the end of the stitching, there's some clear glue that's exposed.

Got my rust and brown ones, sized down too much should have stayed with trubalance (10.5, got 10 and 10 3E). Rust 10s are too tight brown 10 3Es are perfect. I didn't find any issues with either pair and only scuffing is from speedhooks onto the CXL for me

Anyways, I am pretty happy. Everything is in order except a small ~3/4" superficial slash near the heel.

 

Hey, me too.  Maybe one of the production machines was acting up.  As long as it's fine structurally (is it?) I'm fine with it.

 

 

I also have some indentations on the left boot, but might just be from shipping.

I thought I sized down enough, but my size 8s rusts are still half a size too big. STP stocked some more models including a cap-toe Rockford, BUT.. you can no longer use additional coupon codes. I would have to pay an extra $100 just to get the right size, so these are going back frown.gif

So I posted a few weeks back about what I thought might be mold on my boots. I cleaned them with a very dilute soap solution but the spots tend to recur. They also seem to be covering a larger area as I wear them more. It's very off-putting and frustrating. Aside from the visual aspect, I'm worried that the leather may begin to be compromised in these spots. I've had them for almost 2 years and this problem has only crept up in the past month or so.

I recently took them to my local cobbler who has a ton of experience and is really good at what he does. He was stumped about what was going on with the boots. He tried to buff out the spots but it was to no avail.

I contacted Wolverine to see if I could get them replaced, but they weren't having it. They tried to tell me that it was salt deposit, which is strange as they've never been exposed to salt. I wear wool socks which keep the boots from ever getting too wet. Additionally I put in shoe trees whenever I'm done wearing them.

I've included a few pictures of the boots (though I wiped them beforehand, so the spots aren't as obvious). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion of what I could try to do to fix them?

Thanks much

Like someone mentioned, a lot more styles are up on Sierra Trading Post now. Thought about picking up the White Pines in Natural and some brown plain toe's for my girlfriend, but it looks like every single coupon code excludes Wolverine 1000 Mile's. Shame, but probably for the better. Though would have been nice to get a cheap pair for the lady who's not entirely into them.
