Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review - Page 495

post #7411 of 7742


Hello SF! I jst started my boot collection. This is what I have so far:

Wolverine 1K Centennial Boots
Allen Edmonds Dalton Boots
Wolverine 1K McClean Boots

Now im looking for a good chukka boot under $200. I dont really like the Clarks Desert Boots or Bushacre 2 Boots. Any other suggestions?...

So my boots arrived today and I just wanted some opinions before I did anything. Is this crease normal because it is only on one boot.

 

Either way the boots came and was covered in dust is that normal? Once again thanks for the input.

someone tried these on and walked around a bit in them.

 

Yes, that crease is "normal" in the sense that a ton of these boots will have a very similar issue. it will get worse and if the other boot has no crease you will probably have two different looking boots. If this is going to annoy you, I would return them and try again. The new pair may have the same issue, though.

Do any of you have a black courtland with a half sole on it? I'm considering adding a half sole as the leather sole is pretty much useless on wet floors and that the sole looks kinda thin

Courtland doesn't come with leather soles.. I believe it comes with a Vibram rubber sole.

This is what the courtlands comes with. I have them, they're maybe a bit better in the wet but still pretty much useless. Garbage in the snow or slush.

 

I am planning on getting them to a cobbler soon to have a full leather sole put on and a vibram halfsole with some lugs.

Do any of you guys have plantar fasciitis? I'm curious if an insole could be added to these boots? If so, any recommendations on an insole?

There's a s*** ton of room in there. These are work boots. Nearly every tradesman uses shoe inserts.

I'm having the same issue with both my 1000 mile laceup and Emerson boots.
The back of the heel (not the bottom) has worn smooth/shiny from slight slippage and are making noise.
Is this common with full leather boots?

 

edit.

to be more clear,I'm talking about the inside back of the boot,where my own heel makes contact with.

They look ok but I already have a wingtip boot. I'll be getting almost the exact shoe if I buy those boots. Plus thats not even a chukka boot. It's more of a balmoral wingtip boot.

God help me. I just got back from my local denim specialist. They had a pair of shell 721 LTDs. The last one in stock, and it was my size.

 

But they want $1,200 for the pair.  FML

post #7423 of 7742
IMHO the 721 is superior to the 744. $1200 is steep however
post #7424 of 7742

Usually they'll popup in B&S/ebay for $300 or so. Used, but still. $1200 is hilarious.

Its been almost 1.5yrs that I wear my Wolverine Addison's in the tuffest farm environments and even cut down a tree wearing them.  A lot of abuse and yeah, I could have got work boots but then I wouldn't have a story to tell.  The soles have been redone 3x time now.  I cleaned them up and polished them about 2 months ago with just Obenauf cream and that's it.  Yesterday I took my dog out for a walk through the orchards by my house a just thought maybe I should post pictures before the rain season and they get really scuffed up again.

 

So, here is the before pictures with the old flat style soles I had put on there, but now they are like my new 1000's Prestwick soles.  Love the new soles. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The very same boots now with new soles identical to my new Prestwick Wolverine boots.  Much better than new IMHO.  The pictures below are the ones which previously had more beat up look.  I typically Obenauf them once every 2~3 moths...Most incredible is how the brown color looks almost the same as my new black 1000's in picture below.
