Would you guys say that this is normal? I'm a little bit frustrated that Wolverine's QC is so bad. Do you guys think that this is a big deal in terms as far as durability is concerned? e.g. will these creases/cracks expand over time and results in tears in the leather? If not, I might as well just keep them.

From what I see in the photograph those creases are perfectly normal for any boots in the vamp area. You should also realize that chromexcel creases a little more than other leathers but that should have no impact on the durability itself.

Looks normal. Throw some boot oil on that bitch if you want some peace of mind

FYI, guaranteed this boot will continue to crease at these areas . This will result in the veiny bull penis leather. If the other one does no crease like this you May hate it

It's the nature of the cxl on these boots. You could exchange them 10 times and get bull penis leather each time

If you will never be ok with that, return it and get some plastic redwings.

Not bad for 180 - another satisfied STP seconds customer

Here's the defect. Middle of the road in severity from what I've seen. 0 fucks given

Fun fact: I've ordered 6 1000 milers since black friday (yes this forum is very dangerous:)

 

2 Mongomery's  

  • Perfect, albeit not nearly as nice as the traditional original "USA" made yada yada

 

2 White Pines from Haberdash

  • First had ridiculous gash, the second I wore ONCE last week (pics included) and the stitching is literally coming apart in multiple spots. Wolverine were quick with response although I HAD to send pics..wtf whatever lol. Intersting to note they "do not do repairs of any kind" and simply send you a new pair after filling out return authorization form. I am apparantly responsible for return shipping...pretty shitty but whatever. 

 

2 Original 1000 milers in brown from Nordstrom

  • 1st pair as posted erlier had eye rivets all over the place which looked laughable and some I could have been pulled off with little effort.
  • 2nd pair was as shown in earlier post with the upper stitch holes showing everywhere.

         Nordstrom as noted, excellent customer service; should of worn these piles then returned both after 6 months of wear.

 

And wait for it, 1 original 1000 pair from STP with gash in side.

  • Easily the best pair out of the whole bunch besides the gash lol. These are nearly perfect. Love them. 

 

Iv'e been wearing Red Wing Iron Ranger Muelskinners. These are truly bomb proof. The stitching, etc. put these wolverines to shame. Personally, their asthetics aren't nearly as nice but damn are these stout.

Hi everyone,

So I've had my Rust 1Ks for about a year and a half now, and it looks like putting on a half sole would have been a good idea in the beginning. Turns out I'm pretty heavy on my toes, and it looks like the sole wore away faster for my right toe than anything else. It's even revealed the stitching underneath.




My question is can I still have a cobbler put something on (taps and/or half sole) or is it too late and I should just wait until it's due for a recraft? And on that note, is it due for a recraft? Thanks for the help.

Thanks appreciate the advice. Didn't know Cranes retailed the women's styles. I'll wait till the next time they run a promo and consider grabbing them than.

Someone mentioned that you can email Wolverine and they will send you a pair for free. I tried but they directed me to the above website.

Thanks. Were in the wrong business. $18 for a pair of laces. Might check with local cobbler damn.

Nordstrom sells replacement wolverine laces for $10.  I think the shipping is free but I'm not sure.

It's time for a re-sole. Since you know your wear pattern is heavier on the toe, it will probably be a good idea to have a tap or topy put on at the same time.

Deal Time

In honor of my first intercept of a tornado warned storm in 2014 all the 1K boots are on special. Call in or on the web. The magic word is

TORNADO20

It'll end in a few days or so.

Oh and this is my idea of fun. Head on shot of a vicious tornadic supercell thunderstorm 5 minutes from hitting the area.

Anyone with experience in the dye coming right off the leather? You can basically rub it off with something like a cloth exposing brown under it
