Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 341

post #5101 of 6678
One of my brand new boot has this crease in it. Should I be upset and send it back? I have yet to wear these boots at all.


The crease looks even worse when I walk. I understand that you cant keep your boots perfect, but these are brand new.

Nope, that would take you exactly one step to create yourself.

The right shoe creates a nice bend when I step, but the left one looks like shit.

Dude I have no idea. Virtually every pair I see has a weirdly creased left foot and an off center tounge on the right foot

You can try to send it back but they are going to wear and patina however they want regardless

Recieved my Morleys this morning haven't tried them on yet, they look like they are either the right size or a hair small. Either way, that's why I price-matched with Nordstrom, since I can do a really easy swap up half a size without worrying at all about the return/exchange/shipping policy on it.

It is almost certainly reverse Natural CXL. It's nice and thick, not too long a nep on the flesh side, and it looks like a dark natural to my eyes. I think their Natural Rough Out leather is very similar to just reverse Natural CXL, so I can't tell whether its one or the other, but I don't think it particularly matters. I do dislike the burnished look that Wolverine has been applying to these, but fortunately I got a pair that is *extremely* lightly burnished, well less than the wear that will eventually be applied to these. I'm also on the fence about the sewn-in half-sole, but it does seem like a very solid, long-lasting rubber. Of course, a rubber sole is also more traditional for a boondocker boot, since the originals were a full rubber sole (on a leather welt).

Anyway, I'm just on the fence about whether I'll keep them, or put in a custom boondocker boot through Nick's or White's, but I'm glad I got these to just give 'em a try on.

My right boot has a double crease while the left has a single crease. As pointed out already they are going to crease whatever way they crease and it's normal.

Where's Lefty?  These are boots and the difference in creases could be actually the differences in our feet. Who is going to judge the different crease patterns in your boots besides you?  I noticed this in my black 1K's but didn't think it needed anymore attention than the hm? I gave it.  Now the RW round toe boots are really bothering me.  Bourbon colored and i can see that the right is larger than the left when worn and placed next to each other.  Is it the boots or my feet?  Am I going to worry about anyone who can tell this slight difference when I walk by?  No, maybe I should because that person would have a major case of OCD.  No one is going to notice your crease and no one is going to notice the slightly larger right foot I have.

 

Pretty sure women do this type critique of their makeup and hair.  I refuse to do this.

Just to add to the mystery...

My W1K creases differently depending on the thickness of the socks I wear them with.

I have had cheaper leather boots not crease this bad. I am not happy that they are brand new and the crease was that bad out of the box. Will they look better with more wear?

Just return them if you're upset about it. It's a little worse than it should be, but not by much. All leather shoes will crease, save for shell

I have found a nice article review comparison between RW , timberland and wolverine boots http://blindbully.com/2013/12/alden-oak-street-red-wing-wolverine-timberland/

Will it even out after wearing them and breaking them in, or will that crease always look that bad? I get boots crease, but this is a little excessive. I just hate paying return shipping again if the crease will get better over time.

It's going to crease however it creases. These are hand sewn boots made from full grain CXL. Full grain hides vary from hide to hide and from section to section. Your creasing is perfectly normal and is what CXL does. If you can't handle what full grain CXL does then stick with cheap corrected grain boots made by some machine in China.

What some CXL does, dependent on portion of the hide. Really, it's the clicker that's responsible for making sure this doesn't happen, but if you want a perfect boot all the time, you have to pay more for it. Placing demands of perfection on Wolverine is unreasonable

I understand boots crease. That's not really the issue. The issue is that the boot looked like that right out of the box. Brand new boots wouldn't have a crease just by pulling them out of the box. These were supposed to be brand new. The last pair of 1000 miles I tried on didn't have this crease. These do. Do you guys have another pair of 7.5 1000 miles?
