    Would wolverine resole shoes after you've had raptor halfsoles put on? I think this has been asked before but ive forgotten. I just wanted to get that in there before the douche above me starts cursing my entire family.

    I'm not sure why you treated the soles like you did. One coat is enough. You spend all your time on the uppers not the sole. Oh and the stitching issue isn't an issue and never will be. Perfectly normal. Damp concrete is nothing compared to what I walk on. The scree around the lakes I hike is predominately White Burlington Chert. It's the same stuff native American people made arrowheads, spear points and knife blades out of. It's nasty stuff to say the least and after 3 years of walking around in it my soles are still attached to the boots.

    I think it should be mandatory that anyone who buys these boots has to go for a 3 day hike with me. LOL! After that people wouldn't worry so much.

    This shouldn't be an issue, the half soles are just glued on top of the leathers, if anything just replace the raptor half soles if they are worn out.

    Wolverine doesn't recraft these. You bring them to your favorite cobbler.

    Does anyone have a pair of the Wolverine Winchester and can relate his experience with them?

    I can't even see the thread on the soles of my 1K's anymore - lots of dragging from riding and wearing in wet.

    just for the sole? or the sole and the service (obviously i know the service will be charged differently everywhere, but just trying to get a general ballpark)? that's not bad at all.

    I'm in Denver, CO. But I'm willing to bet you can find a similar deal in NY.

    Oh no, it's not expensive by any means. It gets expensive if you do a full recraft/resole. That will run you a C note maybe more depending on who does it.

    Listen Up!

    I'm bringing in a pair of the original 1Ks in #8 size 10. There's a limited supply available in the rest of the size run so if you want them better give us a call. When they come in I'm going to take a pair of brown, rust and the #8s and take a photo of them side by side in daylight and under 5500K artificial light. You'll have your reference for the difference in colors finally.

    I can get the Krause boots in both colors. Again the supply is limited and I have no clue when they'll be back around. PM me for details and I'll just say this. Merry Christmas from all of us at Cranes.

    I'm also going to bring in Snoseal and Obenauf's and stock it too. I just need to figure out who the suppliers are.

    Giving you a call tomorrow. So the #8s aren't the limited LTD versions, right? Can't afford those...
