Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 340

post #5086 of 6762
Does anyone have any pic of some broken in Morley's? Also is there any special care required with them?
post #5087 of 6762

Hi. I recently bought a pair of 1000 miles and actually had to return my first pair to wolverine as stitching by the eyelets came undone after minimal wear. I just received my new pair (brown) and there seems to be a noticeable difference in color as the right boot is darker. I'm sick of shipping the boots back and fourth. Is there a fix for this or should I just get over it?

 

thanks!

The color difference I've chalked up to be a sign that you actually have a real leather boot.  I have the same "issue" on my rust wolverines.  You'll get over it.  After you oil them it might even out a bit.  It's not an issue unless there's a big difference obviously where someone can look down at your shoes and notice, if that's the case it's a bit different.

Looking forward to hearing more about this!

Yea my tan pair were slightly different out of the box. Its just natural variations in the leather. They certainty will seem more even after wear and whatever treatment/care you go with. Thats leather, so I'd say get over it!

Yea I'd be interested to see some pics too. I'm curious about using saddle soap on them. I feel like I've heard some equestrian people say no on rough out

Thanks~ 

Anyone could have both pair picture as a compare?

The last thing that I want to do is order them all and choose one from it :-)

When I get back from dinner the current deal is going to end.
post #5095 of 6762
I've seen some mention in this thread that they use shoe trees, any specific ones that fit the 1ks well? Woodlore epics, ultras, etc.? Boot trees?

Morley's came in the mail today look great but for the life of me I cant understand why they do whatever they do to the toe. Feel like I'm gonna love these even more than my original tans after some good wear

On their website they describe it as using waxed flesh leather (waxed roughout, to my understanding), but it just looks like roughout with a wax burnished toe and heel to me. Is this incorrect?

 

As an aside, does anyone know of any waxed flesh boots currently in production and not required to be part of an MTO order (OSB, Viberg)?

I'm guessing it's rough out CXL or something very similiar. The Latham looks almost like the Morley but is made of Orion leather which is an oiled rough out leather.

Here is a page from Horween on waxed flesh leather. The Morely looks nothing like it. Perplexing as to why Wolverine would list it as being waxed flesh.

This kinda leads me to believe its natural rough out cxl (positively biased because I want that). Most sites list them as tan not natural. They're definitely lighter than tan inside and out. The toe is burnished and the heel. It looks fine I'd just rather it be left alone but $240 I don't care that much

Really digging the rough out and rubber sole. These boots just don't want to be babied. No more little scratch marks from every twig in my yard or big scrapes from right angles in chairs booths barstools
