bought these wolverine boots a year and a half ago as they were 50% off and in my size so i thought why not - they have since served me well and spontaneously decided to give them some treatment:

BEFORE:
Worn through alot of rain, alcohol, clubs, to several countries... they have held up fairly well, although the welt and the leather sole were getting quite roughed up:

SANDING
So i decided to get out some moderately rough sandpaper, and took it to the soles... applied some pressure and just worked it till it was fairly even. Then i used a very fine grade sandpaper to give it a really smooth finish.

FINAL OIL:

I used RM williams leather conditioner (beeswax and lanolin base) on the whole boot which brought back the lustre to the chromexcel. I can never manage to get a real mirror finish o chromexcel, even with a shoe polish - this is the best i'll get. Also used the conditioner on the edge of sole (i don't have sole dressing but this works just as well), and even applied it to the outsole. Gave it a nice finish to the sole edge, and made the base of the sole looks similar to alden's "flex welt" oil sole.

Nice job! Sole edge looks great. And awesome pics. Cool to know that much improvement is possible through some simple at-home rehab.

Waiting for Yoox to stock more sizes for Momas, then I'll prolly kop a pair when a 15% code rolls around. Need some black boots, and these are in my price range

Does anyone know of a less expensive alternative to these right here? I've searched online and didn't come across anything. They seem to be a replica of some sort.

Not my style. I prefer leather boots with a round plain toe. I settled for Galibier Super Touring. Its taking an eternity to arrive here from France.

I'm not a huge man of the suede either. I'm sure there has to be a leather version somewhere!!

I actually went down two sizes when I picked up my pair of Moma and there's still plenty of room for my toes in the front.
