Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 425

post #6361 of 7013
Well, good to hear that they sorted it out. Hopefully, the new pair will be all present and correct.

Does anyone have both the Women's 1K and the Evelyn 1K? how do they compare? 

I presume the sizing is the same? Looks like the Evelyn might be a bit taller? How does the leather compare?

Got my pair of 1000 Mile Cordovans from Nordstrom (price matched from FS Fashion). Going to return them. They don't carry them in store by me so I'm probably just going to look for another boot instead of hoping to get a pair with no issues.

Your money, your choice.

Honestly, you will do that much wear the first time you wear them....

Did you hit those spots with a brush or anything? Rub it with your finger?

Just tried rubbing it. Seemed like the oil from my finger helped a bit, but then I buffed it with a towel and it made it worse than it originally was. Towel ended up with a bunch of stain marks.

Just don't feel like spending $230 on pre scuffed boots. I think an 11 would be a better fit anyway so I'm going to try one exchange and I'll see what I end up with.

Yea, you should avoid anything chromexcel then. It will scuff that bad almost every time you wear them. It is terrible, IMO.

Just wear it. If needed add a little bit of Kiwi Cordovan polish on that area and brush. The towel can sometimes exacerbate the damage further. This is a pull up leather and usually rubbing by oily hand helps to remove those marks.

 

Here is mine.

Buffing with a towel was likely your biggest mistake. Use a horsehair brush, vigorously for 2-3 minutes, and I bet that leather looks like the day it came out of the tannery. If need be, ad a drop or two of a Lexol or Reno moisturizer. I scooped an amazing deal on a pair of AE shell boots, partly because on boot had a similar mark. I defy anyone on this thread to find that mark now. Brushed, with a tiny amount of Saphir Reno, and 'poof', magic! Those are not returns, in my mind. But sounds like there is a size issue pushing you now? In that case, 'blame' the smudges to get your size, absolutely! Lol.

Hadaway ...

Even the white stitching is largely still white.

Thank you sir. It is very relaxing doing this.

Thanks for the tips. I need to get some of those products on hand since this is my first pair.

I'm a 12 in almost all sneakers. Ordered an 11.5 but there's definitely some room to go down so I'm pretty sure an 11 will be the correct fit. Nordstrom already processed the exchange so now I hope I just don't end up with something much worse.

I'm a 9D on normal shoes (Wolverine brand). Size 8.5 Wolverine 1k boots feel snug after a long day walk.

Got my replacement pair from Nordstrom, was like night and day.  Comparing the two, there are no blemishes or creases on the new pair like there were when the old were open, got the cloth, tag, and leather tag, they smell better, and they have the waxed laces.  Also a big lack of cut up box and RTS stickers on said box makes me think that not only were the previous pair a return that should have been taken out of rotation, but whoever had them got them to keep the accessories.

Maybe it's something with the lines of the boot idk.
Having a pair of Whites Smoke Jumpers for work compared to my 1000 Mile boots is not even a close comparison. The Wolverines felt broken in from day one, are pliable and soft, and I feel every pebble I walk on. I still love them. The Whites have taken almost a year and a half of hard work and hiking to break in, are very heavy, I can stomp on anything without worry to soles or leather. A true work boot. No offense just my 2 cents.
