    Think I might sell my pair if anyone is interested. Size 9.5, in great condition and freshly polished! Taking offers.

    Does anyone have a pair of 10 or 10.5 to sell?

    Its a pity Wolverine is taking so many nice 1000 mile models out of the catalog.

    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.

    How did you get so many? I posted at some point in the last 18 months in this thread after seeing them for first time. Found one at the Rack for $530, so $580 after tax, they were too steep for my blood but they fit perfectly. Didn't know what they were at the time.

    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.

    eBay, they still come up on there. I dont think the poor QC ones are worth it, but the good ones definitely $500+

    Do you plan to sell ANY of your 10's?

    I don't have any more for sale. I sold two pairs already and am keeping two.

    I totally understand. Keep me in mind if you ever change your mind.
