Hey phidauex I just got the same boots.  I like the laces.  Where did you get those brown laces?  Thanks.

I got them from TZ Laces, which has an online store, but also sells on Amazon and eBay: http://www.tzlaces.com/

The ones I have are the 5mm Flat Waxed in Light Brown/Tan, 120cm long. I've been pretty happy with them, they are a good match for the boot.

Got my first pair of these. Most expensive shoes I bought (from Australia and these cost $360USD online). Are these factory seconds or something because I'm not happy with the quality of this welt cut... or is this normal?

 

 

Also one pair was really dusty and the tongue was a little wrinkled with a slight abrasion. Other than that they still look nice but I still expected better quality.

I bought my 1K McClean boots last year and they have the exact same welt cut. I've worn them more than a dozen times and I haven't had a problem with them. Also my 1K Courtland boots had wrinkles in the tongue too when I first bought them but I was told that the tongue is made of a thinner leather so it won't cause any irritation when you lace them up. That's why they seem a bit wrinkled. Makes sense. Also I've seen the "dust" you're talking about on a lot of cxl leather boots so I think that's normal.

Okay man, was a little worried these could be factory seconds or something, thanks for the reassurance

 

Everyone else, was yours similar too?

That welt trim is totally normal for Wolverine. You can tell if they are 2nds because they will have a hole punched out of one of the tongues. No hole = first quality.

The dust can be anything, but isn't a problem. Could be literal dust from the manufacturing or packaging, and CXL and other waxy leathers can sometimes form a bit of "bloom" on them from excess waxes coming to the surface. Not a problem, just wipe and brush.

Okay thanks. On another note, does anyone else's boots smell like piss?

Yeah, mine had a pretty strong smell as well. wouldn't say piss, but aomething weird. I still have the box and when you open it, it's still there. Boots on the other hand smell fine afte they aired out a bit.

Wow I have not purchased any yet but that sounds wild. Hope they air out quick for you man.
post #7646 of 7742

Yeah think I'll leave it out to air it for a bit.

 

Anyway one thing I just noticed about the right boot is I think its older than the left pair. The inside is darker, the leather feels thinner, the shoe looser, it's got a lot more creases and a weird black spot. This boot was definitely a display model or something that got wet right? Pretty mad about this, why couldn't they give me a better pair

If you are unhappy then return for refund/exchange.

I would if it didn't cost $70 just to send a package like this back to the US. But I just wanna know if anyone else experienced a similar experience with these boots

I received these in the mail today from Nordstrom. The tongue being scuffed up isn't a big deal because the laces are going to make their own marks, but I was very surprised to see this much scuffing straight out of the box. My real concern is that one of the shoes has an elevated part of the insole that protrudes into the arch of my foot. It's not painful, at least not while wearing them for 30 seconds, but I could see it becoming an annoyance at the very least and possibly a painful issue if worn for several hours. Basically, the insoles are not the same because one sticks up noticeably higher than the other and into the arch. I guess the horror stories I've read about quality control aren't as overhyped as I thought. The soles are also two completely different colors, which is sort of odd. Any thoughts?
