Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 259

post #3871 of 6659
Neognosis, send it to a cobbler and see if the issues can be corrected. I paid near to full amount for my Wolverine from revolveclothing. I am happy with what I got.

200 bucks for a 450 buck retail boot? This in and of itself didn't tip you off that something isn't quite right here? From what I'm seeing you bought these boots from someone who is not a legit dealer and is selling 2nds. If anything your bitch should be with the seller and not with the brand.


Only one website gets blocked here and it starts with a K and ends with a P, legit site but don't know if they are an authorized dealer maybe a bit shady marketing styles


And getting $450 boots for $200 is not really that big a deal, 1ks are on sale at plenty of reputable retailers as well. And plenty of shoes way more than that get marked down just as much, not sure why it's such a big deal he got them on sale. So if I buy $1400 shoes on sale for $600 from an authorized dealer something isn't right?

Why does the leather on those boots look like crap?  Super dry.

Pretty easy to figure out if you google Wolverine Austen.

One question: do I need to upkeep my boots in California weather? Sorry for the silly question, as these are my first pair of boots.

post #3879 of 6659

I received my very first 1000 mile boots today in rust. I went a half size down on my normal shoe size and they fit beautifully. I was just wondering if anybody has any experience with Urad products, especially the "tenderly" and "shoe & leather cleaner". Would it be safe to use this combo of conditioner and polish on these boots? I got them after doing some research but I'd like to double check with the more experienced folk on here.

 

Cheers!

Gents,

When you size down 1/2 from your normal size does feel like there is still room for a medium thickness boot sock? I'm debating whether to not size down so I can wear a heavier sick but not sure if the boots are oversized to start with for this reason.

Guess ill have to 'em on!

Going half size down I get a great fit with medium thickness socks. They really are made bigger than the shoes I normally wear, so for me I needed to size down.

Yes you do. Leather will dry out in nice weather so at a minimum you'll have to oil them once in a while. In your case keeping them clean is very important. That nice dry dust is like micro razor blades and will cut the leather to pieces over time.

In general workboots are sized a bit roomy for this reason. That's why sizing down a half size makes sense for people who won't be wearing thick socks. I wear mine mainly in Fall, Winter and Spring. I wear anything from light smart wool socks all the way up to very thick arctic weight socks. My boots are sized according to my Brannock measurements and I can tell you that with the thick arctic socks the boots fit snug, not tight but snug.

Appreciate the reply! Did some research and it seemed people generally like Obenauf's products. I'll probably try out their leather oil.

Does anyone have any experience with Urad products on these boots? Would the products mentioned above be safe to use or would something else be more recommended?

LP or oil and you'll be good.
