Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 246

Thank you. The sizing advice/experience on the board is a bit contractictory - one person said he was a size 12 but for a 1000 Mile boot had to go down to 10.5. Someone else, like you, said they went down one half size.

It's interesting that the 744 Ltd 1000 Mile shell cordovan boot fits, in my experience, TTS: I measure 11 on the Brannock, that's the size I got for the 744, and it's absolutely perfect for me. Several stores that carry/carried the 744 Ltd also recommended TTS. I've read that several people found the boot a bit narrow (which can be good or bad, based on foot shape). I am a C width and I find that the 744 fits much better in the heel area than my Alden Barrie last shoes.

Others may disagree, but it seems like sizing is highly dependent on which 1000 Mile boot you're talking about & the shape of your foot.

As for the Krause boot, if I do order it, I will likely go with 10.5, which is one half size down from my Brannock size.

Thanks again.

Well, my Courtlands arrived today. I am very disappointed. The boot on the right has a nice blemish/indent right above the moc toe and there also is a small black blemish above one of the eyelets. Poor quality control! They went back to the authorized dealer this evening and the owner is going to reorder. I told him to make sure that Wolverine hand picks my new pair. I will report back when the new pair arrives. Other than that, I love the look of the moc top style and also like the rubber sole.

Heya first post for me! However I've been lurking this thread for the last 6 months at least. This is my first pair of Wolverines. I spent the last 6 months researching into the standard 1k original boot, thinking it was what I was going to go for.. Then I stumbled across the Rockford edition.. I'm so glad I went with the rockfords, they're amazing. I personally found the 1k originals to plain across the front of the foot, I wanted a bit more character. By having the cap toe this really did it for me. I picked these up off ebay for $150USD, literally worn once. No issues with them whatsoever, pretty much brand new. Will post some more pics soon.

STP has 45% off their selection of 1000 mile seconds today if you are signed up for deal flyer. Pretty good deal if you are willing to run the risk of blemishes etc. was 135 shipped for me to pick up some courtlands so I figured it was worth the risk.

Thanks! I ordered yesterday and just saved 35$ by talking to a rep via live chat.

Is the wolverine Darby leather a chromexcel leather? It looks to have more sheen by pictures opinion.
Just nabbed some no.8's
I was super pumped on them in store but I wish I had some that's to compare to.
What's the popular option.

Also I will likely post later on a pair of timberland Abington boots I purchased at 50% off last winter. My first pair of 5/6" boots I was in love, with a good amount of wear, the quality started to seep through . My sole began to separate and a 'construction paper' enforced heel ?? Started to separate from the insole, as it was glued in. I definitely could have lengthened the life of these boots by avoiding water. But I live in vancouver.

Wondering if anyone owns these boots with a bit more knowledge towards a medium quality construction.
I won't be running into this issue with the wolverines I hope.
Ill post pics later, it's not a boot I see worn often!

Just picked up some 1000 miles in cordovan #8. Can anyone comment on whether or not it's kosher to use Dr. Martens Wonder Balsam (contains coconut oil, lanoline and beeswax) on these bad-boys prior to sno-sealing them? Thanks in advance.

Here are my recently full resoled 1K's. I haven't seen anyone do a full resole with these so I thought I would try it out, and I am very impressed with how they came out. My cobbler did an excellent job putting the Vibram Christy sole on. I hadn't worn the boots in over 3 months because I personally think that the sole and heel on these boots are very unattractive and impractical. The boot is much more comfortable to walk in with the thick rubber sole.

Hello, just wanted to touch base. I don't have the 1K's, however based on my actual foot measurement being size 13 C, the 12 D Plainsman fits perfectly.

I wouldn't recommend them for casual wear-they are kind of bulky and don't stay "nice" looking really. Comfy as hell for work though, took exactly 2 days to break in.

These look really great. I wish they sold them with this sole! How much was it to get it done?

It cost $55 and they were done in about a week. It was well worth the money
