    I have two pairs of Wolverine 1000 mile boots, one black and one brown. I love them both and they are by far the finest pairs of shoes I have ever owned.

    I have a question for those who have owned leather-soled boots like these...what happens when the stitching that goes around the perimeter of the leather sole wears out? That's not the only thing holding the sole on, is it? The stitching on the top perimeter of the sole won't come out then, will it?

    Probably a basic question, but I've googled about and haven't found any answer to it! Thanks
