Couple weeks ago I bought the black McCleans on sale at Nordstrom (33% off). Day or two after purchasing, they dropped it another 5 or 6 percent so took them back for a price match (it was a one or two day reduction).

This morning I wake up to find it reduced by 50%. I'm still within the two week price protection period but Nordstrom only price matches once per item. Damn.

That's not quite true. Nordstrom has an almost unlimited return policy. If they don't price match (and I don't see why they wouldn't) then return them and then immediately buy another pair. Boom

Website says only price match once. I would return and repurchase, but I already altered the boots by getting vibram half soles on them. frown.gif

Just go into the store with your receipt and they will credit you.

What's the official name of the tags that go with the laces of Wolverine 1k boots?
post #7432 of 7742

That stinks.

 

I picked up a pair for $200 on November 26.

 

I noticed they are back up to $268 today.

 

They arrive tonight.  Hope they look OK.

Size of Chelsea Montague is the same normal 1000 mile?

Damn. Just got my winter beaters back from a cobbler. My first experience with one. I am more than pleased. $120

That sole in rain, wet leaves, snow, ice and slush would have been a liability. Commando lugged sole, the deeper the lugs the better, are a far better choice.

My winter boots are zug grain Trickers with a commando sole. Bullet proof and easy to care for.

My boots after 1 year of wear

Wondering if anyone has tried darkening their wolverines? That is, with actual dye rather than indirect dyeing with water proofer. I have a pair of rust bought second hand that I'm not getting heaps of wear out of. I have brown and black leather dye I'm considering experimenting with

Interested in anyone's experiences or thoughts about how the rust cxl would react to a stripping agent + dye application

Haven't done this, but I would say don't do it. CXL is naturally oily as it is soaked in chemicals to make it basically maintenance free.  I've got some golden cxl that are so shiny that they look like they're still wet.  Let's say you do strip the color, I would think that the dye would run off because of the oils underneath.

V interesting, thanks for your response. Given I'm considering getting a new pair altogether to replace these I think I will still give it a go. I will post pictures and let people know how it goes.
