I guess you have to accept poor quality with Wolverine boots and expect that when they claim to personally inspect the boots when they ship out an exchange that they don't know what they are looking at.

I sent back a horrible pair that actually had an eyelet ripped right out, and wolverine replaced them with a slightly better pair that just has wrinkly leather and some missing and loose stitches. Which is too bad, because I love the look of them, but won't buy wolverines again.

Not looking to baby them, necessarily, but want to protect & preserve my investment for many years of service.  

Thanks in advance.  

Not really anything definitive past what you've read

LP every few months.... Maybe oil them in between....

I just wing it and usually get drunk and decide its a fantastic time to clean a pair of boots

denim bar has a 25% off. 

I used that for my 2nd pair. Been wearing my black pair for work. Now time for a pair of rust.

 

Also people looking for a good insole, I've used a bunch and I suggest the dr. scholls sport insole if your on your feet all day. First 2 days it might hurt your arch but after that its all clouds.

 

Some shots of my black 1K work boots.. Love the contrast to the soles: imgur.com/a/qAcCM

Did you use a coupon for that 25% on denim bar?

Here are my tan boots a week after applying Obenauf's Oil and LP along with the untreated leather tab the boots come with. I guess I didn't put enough on the tongue on the left boot so it ended up being a lighter shade so I'll probably add more to it.

I used easter25 which was on the front page on their site.. everything but 3sixteen items.

So my Addisons showed up.. The left boot has a zebra effect where larger pores took up more of the dark color. The right boot has a pinch in the heel and the leather on that side is a little more relaxed than the rest of it.

 

Nothing as bad as some of what people have posted here, but not what I was hoping for. I don't know from shoe construction though - is that pinch reasonable, and not a sign of careless manufacture?

 

Not that they wouldn't get beat to hell anyway, but it's like Wolverine isn't trying to earn my $300.

Pair of morleys on the way while I decide what to do with these.

I really like the effect the Obenauf's had on these. It gave it a real nice shade of tan. I think Ill try it on my Addison's. I dont wear them nearly as much as I should maybe a new shade will help sweeten them up.

I wouldnt worry too much about the zebra pattern they are going to look far worse than that after a dozen wears. You could also treat them with an oil or protectant and I would assume it would blend that out.

i found a small piece of what i believe to be thread from the welt sticking out between upper and sole, looks like it was possibly attempted to be burned off.  anyone seen this before or know if itll pose a problem in the future?

Burning a stray thread shouldn't pose a problem...common remedy
