Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 328

post #4906 of 6682

I have no idea how some of you get through a day without dissolving into a puddle of tears.

 

They're just fucking boots.

@lefty:  :hide:  I know how all of the people who care for their boots feel now.  Yesterday on the way to the store some salt water splashed onto my RW Bourbon Round Toe boots.  Couldn't wait to get home to get this dirt wiped off.  Winter causes salt to be spread everywhere around here.  Just noticed there is still some salt on the welt.  Have to get this off before going to bed tonight.

Ahh the benefits of just a little bit of preventative maintenance. I don't care at all what I step in, walk or wade through. A little brushing and maybe some Lexol cleaner and all is good in the world.

^^ Nothing wrong with a little preventative care, but jesus christ there are only a few products you can use and only so many ways they can be used: if they're scuffed, polish them. If you're walking through inclement weather, treat them.

Worrying about the minor colour change on a work boot from a treatment product is fucking ridiculous.

 

Not too mention that most of you guys are choosing boots that are too small for you. But that something you can take up with your podiatrists later.

After wiping off the salt and mud and giving them the seal and bake treatment, here's how my 2 years old brown W1K look like:




what sole/heel do you have on your boots? looks like a good option when it comes time for a resole

Just the standard Vibram commando half sole + heel.

did you add those ontop of the existing leather sole?
would it be possible to add if mine have already been worn a bunch or would it be better to wait for a resole?

I added them while they were brand new.

I think you can add them pretty much anytime you want, you don't have to wait till re-sole.

I added mine to year-old soles - you can add them on top of the existing, no problem.

Have most you guys sent your boots off for the resole or used a local place? New terrority for me

Anyone have pictures of worn down boots in the Tan color? Looked through all the images but couldn't really find any. Thanks!

Is the creasing normal on these wolverines? Someone is offering to sell me seconds that have been worn once so I was wondering if 175$ is a fair price. Thanks!

post #4919 of 6682

looks like those have been worn a lot more than one time...

they appear to be in decent condition but $175 seems like a lot.

post #4920 of 6682

Just read about this.  Good idea or not?

 

Shoe polish

What, exactly, is it in shoe polish that has such a headache-inducing smell? It could be any number of potentially toxic ingredients. Banish them from your house and use olive oil instead. Just buff onto your leather shoes with a cloth.
