I didn't get pics of the uppers but they we're in great shape. I couldn't find anything wrong with them. I was really surprised to see them at that price. I'll take same pics when I go back if they're still there.

No need to go back. Can you remember the model?

It was a discontinued model, the Wolverine 1000 Mile Centennial Boot in Brown Bison Leather. I actually bought a pair for $150 a few months ago and they still look amazing. Just like most 1K boots, they're Made in USA and feature a goodyear welt. That's why I'm saying for $60 that's a huge steal.

Thanks! I think I know which one you're talking about. 

 

That's a nice one.  Not a fan of the wolverine 1ks that have a captoe that looks like a messed up wingtip, lol.

The frequency of conditioning is going to depend on a number of factors. I used to work in wet, muddy winter and dry, dusty summer conditions which meant I was conditioning 2 to 3 times per year. Probably best to condition them if they are looking a little dry or after you clean them again with saddle soap. Conditioner should soak through a thin finish of old, worn polish. Always best to apply the conditioner, let it soak in and then apply new polish

Yup. It was that one but in a darker brown. Still same model.

Are u talking about the Addison boot that looks like a messed up wingtip? I'm not much of a fan of that model either simply because I like my wingtip boots to look dressy and wingtips on a 1K boot looks to rugged for me.

Yep. The addison looks pretty bad IMO. The wing ends where the blucher flap is. They could have brought the wing down.  There was also some sort of two tone model where the vamp part was canvas (?). Made it even worse.

I don't plan to wear in mud , just normal wear and tear. They still get pretty dirty at times. I should have a good six month. Then I'll condition them, let dry and maybe a very light coat of polish with the brown again or the clear. I'm ready for another beat up pair. Lol

Is it not fun to breathe new life into things that others may discard ?

I know I love and more so when it comes to boots that I can restore. Great out come and relaxing at the same time. I'm sure the leather is different in each brand

Hi Guys,

 

I am thinking of buying a pair of 1000 Mile Wolverine's but I am confused about sizing.

 

Australian here, which means AU/UK sizing. I am a 7.5 (wide) in AU/UK for my black oxford shoes, which translates to US 8.5.

 

However, everyone says to size ONE down. So I would like to ask ... that means 7.5 US is what I should order... Right?

 

I would be ordering from overseas so I want to be sure, I would be thankful if anyone with experience could share their opinion. There seems to be a lot of people saying size One down, and then a lot of people saying size down half a size. Not sure what to do here...

 

Complicating this, I have found a size 8 with discount, so wondering if it would be worth getting that, even though it is only half a size down...

When I was considering buying a pair of 1000 mile boots, the conventional advice seemed to be half size down. However, I found I needed to go a full size down to achieve a proper fit. Best to try on, of course.

Morning. I have a non boot related question. I see lot of pics of guys wearing all these great looking boots and most of the time they are wearing darker jeans that are rolled up
At the bottom is the a certain brand or style. I really like the look. Lol. Thanks.
