Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 279

post #4171 of 6617
Mario, I want to add your tutorial to my site under the Wolverine 1K section. I figure you wouldn't mind but I'll ask to make sure you're good with it. Now I will need pics that are at least 1280 pix wide on the long side.

Does anyone know how to get a replacement pair of laces for the Black Krause boot?  I called the Wolverine store and all they have available are regular 1000 mile laces, which are different.  The Krause laces are a little thicker and lighter brown...

 

Thanks.

That's what I tried originally, and they sent me to the Wolverine Co store in MI, which only had the regular, non-Krause laces for some reason...  Wonder if anyone knows of a store that has the real Krause ones...?

Bummer... 

 

If you want to add some color to your boots, give these a shot. I've been happy with mine.

What I do is scrape a small amount of wax from the container into a spoon. Light the wax while it's on the spoon and a small amount of liquid will pool up. Dip your cloth into that and apply.

LOL! Yes you do. I should retake mine but I'm really lazy. Maybe when I get around to getting a pair of Stocktons.

Just Received my 1k's in black :D. I promised Brooks I would upload a picture when it came, so here it is! Really cool boots, I didn't find any noticeable problems. My favourite colour is still the rust, but I already have a pair of chelsea boots that colour :(.

Give a call to Allen Edmonds (the maker of the Krause boots, I believe). They might be able to help.

I actually love the look of the Iron Ranger to be honest, but if you've never tried them on they are VERY narrow, even the so-called EE width (only available in brown, not black) is about medkum width.  And virtually no arch support.  But LOOKS great.

Speaking of cap-toes... I've been thinking about getting a pair of the boots on the link below. Prices start at £111.95 (£42.95 for shipping). The price comes to around $250 US. 

 
They come with several leather options (per an e-mail I received from the vendor this morning):
 
Black smooth waxy leather
Dark Brown smooth waxy leather
Tan Chestnut Waxy leather

Black Chromexcel horsehide leather
Dark Brown Chromexcel horsehide leather

Brown Latigo leather
Black Latigo leather

Dark Brown Zug-grain leather
Black Zug-grain leather

Black Reverse Kip Butt leather
