Ignore just about anything this guy has to say or posts pics of.

I have seen the same pics.  A sharp looking shoe to me which lead me to place my order in.

I googled image searched and found the pics you're talking about. Wow, the greenish color looks disgusting. I really hope that's just bad color correction from his camera....

Just saw it. Looks a bit bulbous as well. I am surprised that pic is already posted online when actual retailers cannot put anything up yet

That's sarcasm, right? biggrin.gif

So not green. Likely not ugly. But we only have about one more month to wait, right?

There's been some discussion here already. He's not allowed to post pictures. So he's likely in hot water with Wolverine now.

It can't be the correction of the camera because the 721LTD near the pseudo-744LTD is in the right color ...

I find it a bit bulbous too but well, I think we can believe Crane and wait for pics of the REAL shoe.

I just hope that I will not miss the 721 LTD, especially because there is a pair in my size on eBay.

I asked the guy on FB who took the photo of the 744 if it was actually green or it was just his camera's color correction. He said "It's actually green."

WTF?!

1.  I do think the green shoe looks great.  With the right pants they would look nice.

 

2.  I do not see why anyone here is upset that there is someone releasing pictures early.  That is something Wolverine should worry about.

The pic/ boot looks authentic to me... but, if Crane's casting doubt (rather than not saying anything), then I'm not sure what to believe.

 

Was thinking that the green colour would darken a fair bit to be a kind of black-but-dark-green boot, which in my mind I have warmed to.

Might just oil and/ or wax them to darken if Im not happy.

 

You guys think going up half a size should be enough for an insole addition?

Exactly. Let's stop with the boy scout shit.

What's more likely to hurt sales? Leaked photos or making your boots green?

I don't see how someone would get a hold of a one-off Wolverine boot. It has to be the production model I would think.

I'm going to call a spade a spade. What are you doing here? Promoting your new found buddy? He's been banned here for his antics. What kind of deal did he cut you for coming here and chatting him up? Do you know what complicit and duplicit mean? You're both.

Did your buddy bother to tell you that he's on thin ice with Wolverine? What part of Wolverine corporate reads this thread don't you understand?

Stupid is as stupid does. Were you stupid enough to pay for the boots already?

Let's not.

That's all find and dandy except this guy is undermining everything Wolverine is doing with these boots. Why don't you ask the guys at Leffot how they feel about this? I bet they're pissed.... and laughing at the same time. Perhaps you would understand it better if you had a shit load of your own money tied up in stock and followed your dealer agreement. It's never a good time when some renegade asshole comes around and fucks up all of your advertising conceptuals/plans along with flagrantly violating MAP/MSRP. policy.

At best it's a pre production model.

You're over-reacting. If I was Wolverine, I'd be happy some hardcore shoe nerds care enough about their product to sit around all day and discuss them. If the boots aren't actually green, I'm going to purchase a pair. Just like if I'd never seem some blurry photo. Calm down bro, it's not the end of the world! You could reasonably make an argument that leaks are good... they get people talking. In this case, maybe not since the leather looks like someone hurled pea soup on it. LOL
