Anyone have pics of their boots after wearing them for years!?
I'm not sold on this whole resoling thing. What I read is that welted shoes can only be resoled so many times.

I don't have pix of old boots cause I'm young but my dad and uncles have shoes they've had for years/decades.  It is really important that you:

1. rotate boots (dont wear them every day.)

2. Let them air out for 5-10 minutes after you take them off.

3. put some shoe trees in after this.

4. condition 1 or 2x a year or when they look dry. polishing boots is not the same as conditioning.

 

Certainly resole as needed.

Good luck in finding either of them, they are out of production and very difficult to find.  I have a pair of Krause in black and they are amazing boots.  I wear them 4 times a week.  I just bought some of the last AE Sauk Drives which are also made from Dublin leather, the same as the Krause.  AE sold them for $199, even though they said they were $350 marked down but they were a BF special and were never offered at $350.  I bought mine on closeout for $157.  I don't know what made the Krause such a premium boot that it sold for $550 full retail, a good $175 over similar 1000 mile non dublin leather boots.  I assumed dublin was just a more expensive leather, but the Sauk Drives dispelled that theory.

What size do you wear?
post #7490 of 7742

I was looking at some boots and they had about a 1" straight cut down the top middle of the tongue, along with three "X" marks in black marker on the back of the other tongue.  Does anyone know what this means?  Are they seconds?  Worse than seconds?  They look completely fine otherwise, as far as I can tell.  No weird scuffs or marks or missing stitches. 

 

Thanks for any advice you can give me!

Cleaning my 1ks I noticed that the inside sole is separating and/or shrinking. Is this normal?

 

 

I also noticed that on the outside right next to the sole the upper has wear marks.

 

My fear is is that they're wearing out...

I don't see any major problems there, leather moves around a bit as it ages naturally. Make sure you are letting the boots dry out fully between wears (usually a day gap - rotate with another pair of shoes), and next time you condition, put a little light conditioner like Lexol on the insole to slow down any cracking. Otherwise I think you are fine.

Scored Tan 1000 Miles for $130 yesterday. Should be a nice addition to the collection.

Cool. Where these red tagged? Or everyday discount price? Red tagged items are harder to find via computer inventory. Thx.
