Could someone please advise where I can get replacement waxed leather laces for my 1000 milesin rust color? I remember reading somewhere that you have to mail in for them or something? If this is still the case does anyone have ther address?

Damn - $18.00 for laces?! I seem to remember that mail-in option was something like ~$5.00. Was I imagining that?

Thanks for the link, by the way.

Just reach out to Wolverine 1K customer service for new laces. They have sent me a pair for free, just for asking how to get a replacement pair.

I kind of like those. There's something of a dissonance though since the material seems like it's more appropriate for spring/summer footwear and not for boots. I wonder how they'd handle the weather.

Crane's, care to elaborate why you wouldn't use Saphir cream? My black boots in particular are slowly progressing to be like this guys, although nowhere near as bad yet.

Sorry I haven't been able to read all the posts in this thread, but has anyone experienced this kind of issue with their boots? It seems like the coloring/leather on my shoe is rubbing off. Anyway to fix or remedy this? I've only had these boots for roughly 1 month.

I did and they send me that link. For the price I think its not that expensive considering the boots that we are going to put them into. I' buy a few pairs.

 

Another photo I took after work. Wipe clean with wet towel and brush.

Sure. Since you are going to LP these you'll probably find that a lot of your scuffs and so on are going to go away. Now if you still want to add some color you're going to have to wait a while until the LP settles down. By that I mean a few months not days. Attempting to use colored shoe wax on freshly oiled or snosealed/LPed leather tends to just be a waste of time. The color won't penetrate and shoe wax tends to do weird things like balling up.

Ah ok, thanks for the feedback. They have been due for a new LP application for some time now, so hopefully that will take care of most of it.

I've been happy with these laces...

Sorry, but that logic is absolute rubbish.  The price of a pair of shoe laces is not really proportionate to the cost of a pair of shoes.  

 

I can buy Alden branded laces online for $5 where this website charges $18 for brand "X" laces?  Alden and Redwing have both sent me free laces when needed.  Hell, Alden sent me two pairs without asking.

 

When/if my 1000's need laces, I will not waste any time with Wolverine, and on principle alone will I pay rightlace.com those crazy ass prices.
