Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 247

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. 

 

 

 

 

I'm glad that you are happy with them but personally I think the original sole and heel look much better than this.

I didn't like the look of the 1000 mile plain toe boot so I went with the Courtland moc toe style boot. And I prefer the rubber sole on the Courtlands for the more rugged look and feel.

Does anybody by coincidence know about any sales going on. Would like to buy these awesome boots, but 300 is a bit on the high side.

I'm sorry but, what?

That was a joke man... I made a link to raw denim. biggrin.gif (Raw unsanforized denim shrinks after the first soak. So you get the desired size after soaking them...)

This has probably been addressed already several times, but do Wolverine Boots run true to size?  If you could please answer this for me, I'd be very thankful!

No, they do not. Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots run .5 size large to a full size large depending on how you like your boots to fit and whether you use an insole and wear thick socks.

Hi!

I was initially looking for some Wolverine 1K's. Here in Germany I would have to pay round about € 400.- (= $ 520.-).

Now I have the chance to get a pair of black Krause boots at sale price € 360.- ($ 470.-) instead of regular price € 550.- ($ 700.-). Great deal!

I would like to get some opinions if the Krause with it's Horween Dublin Leather is worth the money. Is black a common colour for this boot? Or should I watch out for a classic 1K in brown/rust/#8 to achieve such a nice patina which some of you have after wearing them?

You may have recognised that I'm not quite sure what to do as this will be my first but hopefully not last high-class boot.
So I'm very thankful for any advice.

Regards,

Chris

So if I'm usually a size 10, then I should order a 9.5 or possibly a 9?  Thanks so much!

Are the Krause worth the money? I have to say, no. I have a pair and they're quite nice but I'd save money and just get the regular 1000 Mile plain toe boot unless you absolutely must have the cap toe or are a completist collector type like me.

Could you explain your 'no'? And why would you prefer the classic 1K?

Only if you like the cap-toe style. I didn't care for it, looked too stubby, so I sold my Krause's. I prefer the look of the plain toe Classics. In my opinion, Dublin shouldn't command a premium; it's not superior to Chromexcel, just different.

I'd go 9, but YRMV.
