No, mine are a custom MTO. I based them on the ones I saw on Ebay but made some changes (reverse split welt, etc).
Wolverine 1000 mile 744 LTD Boots - Page 11
Im new to this forum so I cannot post in the classifieds yet, but I figured I would put this here instead. If this is against the rules please let me know.
I have a pair ofWolverine 1000 Mile 744 LTD Size 10.
I need to sell these because my job just got delayed for a couple months and I need the money. There were only 1000 of these made in the world; this pair is numbered 632/1000. Im asking $375 OBO
The picture of the tongue is a clean cut, not a rip in leather. It was that way whenever I purchased them, and you cannot see it when wearing.
Long time bump. Got a question for you guys, especially owners of this boot.
I saw a pair of these today at a Nordstrom Rack, I think it was numbered like #780 out of 1000. They are new, I didn't see "second marks" like most AE's at a Rack have. Some little scratches on the vamp but would probably be polished out.
Anyhow, the boots are 30% off MSRP so about $530 after the discount. That's a lot. I'm curious what you guys think about these boots, particularly for this price?
I tried them on and the fit great. Was also my first time trying on shell cordovan shoes/boots. I didn't buy but my guess is I could go back within a few weeks and they'll still be there. Thanks for any tips.
Not familiar with Red Wings but I usually wear a 10 in sneakers, boots if I size down its usually half a size (which is kind of standard for boots it seems) unless its notoriously oversized (I think my bean boots are an 8.5).
If you've worn normal 1000 miles these fit the same, but slightly more narrow. I would wear thick socks with my normal 1000 Miles but if I do so with these my foot can be a bit cramped, this might also be due to the cordovan not having as much stretch as cow leather.
As you can see, this was one of my favorite pairs of shell cordovan boots on the market. There are four pairs in the pictures, one 9.5D and three 10D pairs in various stages of their lives.
I still own the two better looking 10D pairs. I learned over the year I wore the 9.5D pair that shell cordovan does not stretch much! The 9.5D’s were still tight when I sold them… (this was even with the help of a nice pair of real cobbler shoe stretchers).
There were some serious issues in QC with the 744. I found the earlier numbered boots were better. They were a little over the first 100 with the uniform small size holes on the toe caps. The third ugly pair of 10D’s (worst looking pair) was actually not very used. The width was much smaller than the other 10Ds and the L&R lengths were both shorter and off by 1/4” from one another.

Some research brought me here and realized the whole limited edition, highly sought after, etc. I knew they were shell at the time, actually my first time trying on shell boots (or shoes). Never saw them again. I'd like to think I'd buy one now if I came across a brand new pair for $500-$600 but at the end of the day that's still quite steep for a Wolverine boot made like 5 years ago. Oh well, probably lost my chance.
