Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 238

post #3556 of 6940

Hate to ask yet another sizing question here - so apologies in advance.

 

I usually wear a 8 US in Red Wings which is a 7UK/26cms Japan. Thinking of sizing down and going for a 7.5 US/26.5 Japan in the 1000 Mile. Thoughts?

 

Cheers

I am not familiar with collonil products, but I have to ask why are you polishing using a conditioner ?

Conditioners are generally used to nourish the leather after which you would apply a polish.

Same as Red Wing gets my vote.

I sized the same as my Red Wings and found the 1000 miles fit slightly narrower, though about as long.

I have quite the opposite experience. I find redwings in the same size and width narrower than the 1000 mile boots. In addition the 1000 mile boots is more comfortable right off the box. The only question is whether one prefers CXL or otherwise.

Haven't seen a ton of documented Wolverine 1000 Mile Krause boots. So here are a few snaps of my pair:

Thanks for the help, guys - will probably go for the 8.

 

I guess also because of the relatively slim profile of the boots (compared to Red Wing 875s for example), if you size down too much you probably run the risk of looking like you have disproportionately small feet I'd think - which is never a good look imo

Hopefully not breaking any forum rules...

Just received a pair of Brown Wolverine Montgomery, BNIB, size 11D. Won't work for me, and I don't think I can return them. Just seeing if there'd be any interest in them... Would let them go relatively cheap, considering... $200-$225 shipped, or thereabouts.

Just gauging interest, so shoot me a PM.

Thanks.

I have a sizing/fit question. Purchased a pair of the 2nds from SierraTradingPost.
Some scuffs around, but there's a small gash on the left toe. Superficial, so I plan on keeping them for now.

I generally wear size 8-8.5s, and purchased a size 7.5.
They fit well (slightly snug) in the width, but there's about 1" worth of toe space, even with medium/thicker socks. '
When laced up, I get sliiight heel slip, but that should go away once it's broken in.
I've included a picture of where my big toe falls.
What do you guys think? That toespace shouldn't be a problem right?

more than the toe space, you should pay attention to whether the ball of your feet align with the widest part of the shoe.

First time poster here.  SF really turned me on to the 1000 mile boot. I have been a long time lover of Danner boots and other leather goods.  When I found that STP had a sale I jumped on it.  I was able to score their last pair of 11.5 Rockford 1000 mile boots in brown for $228 with free shipping code.  I have now noticed that they have now crept up to $255.  Since I've been at work and busy with family I didn't have a time to condition them and wear them for a full day.  We went on vacation and so I took my shoe kit and the shoes with me.  The night before we went out I greases them up with some Obeauf's Heavy Duty LP and let them sit.  After three days of wear(over one week) I started to notice the left boot stitching.  I seems like the original stitch was either too weak or it was stitched to close to the upper edge because somehow it is now showing the underside stitching holes. 

 

I've checked to see if there is any missing thread of if it is cut or fraying and I can't find any problems.  Looking on the inside of the boot it appears that there was just one stitch and that it "took" the first time.

 

Here is the far side of the boot. 

Any suggestions?  I called STP and they offered me a full refund or a $50 credit if I wanted to keep them.  Their customer service has been awesome and has made me a life long customer of theirs. I don't want to be "that guy" who tries to get something for free but I really want to keep these boots(they don't have any more in stock in my size).  How much would a good cobbler charge to fix it and would 'restitching' it cause any more visual damage? 

My last option that I was thinking of doing was to trade them in for the Courtland 1000 mile boots.  Does anyone have any experience with them? Pro/Cons for the Rockford vs Courtland?  I really like the Rockford because it has the leather sole and the toe cap.

Here is a pic of the boots right after I unboxed them.

So I just received my boots and while there are few blemishes on the shoe, the number of eyelets is different. The left has four eyelets while the right has three. Anyone else have this problem? I doubt it will affect how functional the boots are...but a little annoying. Worth returning/exchanging? I'm a little worried about ending up with something far worse.

PSA If you don't mind black, Steve Alan has 1000mile boots on sale for less than $245 after the new 25% discount.

STP ?

I don't think that this would fall into my level of acceptability, so I would be looking to return/exchange. Maybe return for an exchange and if that does not meet your standards then return for refund.
