You could always do a normal leather resole and then add topy (or similar) rubber covering. The advantage here is that in future you just have to replace the heels and the topy and not the leather sole. However, Topys are not going to offer the same depth and types of grip pattern as a vibram sole. Vibram do a number of lite soles that will suit the weight and heft of the 1K, plus you can always go hipster and get them resoled with a Vibram Christy biggrin.gif

Man that's been a long time ago! I hardly recognize those things. I posted this pic already but It's worth doing again. It's taken me about two years wear the soles down to the point that I'll have them redone before Winter rolls around. That reminds me. I did say i would clean these up and write up another tutorial,,,

Certain things just seem to get better with wear.

Yep, that's the beauty of products made from good leather.

Crane's - I've sent a few emails over the last couple of weeks that have gone unanswered (I'm in Australia, so email is easier than phone). Trying to track down some 1k Rust in a 9D. Got any? Thanks

I just might have them. I was in the store Friday checking on a size/color combo for someone else and seem to remember seeing 9 rust on the shelf. The store is closed today so when I wander over there sometime Monday I'll have a look.

No rust 9s on my back shelf. I have a brown pair though. We can get the rust, no problem too. I'm not sure what the deal is with emails. Dave is pretty good about getting back to people. I hope we aren't on a black list again. Check your spam folder and see if anything is there.

Can anybody provide some information on the leather used for the Wolverine Austen Boot?

Is it waterproof?

Looking for something to wear for the Vermont winter

Thanks in advance!

Per Horween: "Predator is a waxed and tumbled full grain leather. The wax used on the leather is burnishable and will wear very well over time. This is a chrome tanned leather with a heavy vegetable retannage." http://horween.com/101/chromexcel-2/

Did the crane method on my 1ks with snoseal...brushed it with horsehair brush.  Now there's snoseal residue on my brush.  The brush feels sticky with the snoseal clunking some of the hair together.

 

Is this normal or did I do something wrong? feels like i ruined the brush

For things such as snoseal or Obenaufs LP it is usually best to get as much as possible to soak into the leather using fingers and/or a hairdryer. After that remove any excess using a cloth before buffing.

To clean the brush can you not heat it with a hairdyer and then brush a cloth to remove excess snoseal?

Agreed, apply those by hand and use a cloth to remove excess before brushing if necessary, I just skip the brushing altogether. Frankly, I only use a brush first to get rid of dirt and mud but not after applying snosneal.

 

You can just wash the brush or just keep using the brush on any other boots. It will become less sticky.
