    i tried these on the other day, sizing-wise they are very similar to the red wing gentleman's traveler. very nice boots - cool and rugged. leather is pretty soft from the start. would probably buy if it weren't for just having tried on the trickers stow boots, which just have more class.

    It's a shame they have the double stitching on these. I think they would be perfect with single. That said, still think they are a cool looking boot. Big fan of Wolverine, will pick up a pair soon I'm sure

    Wait, you smell that?
    There's nothing wrong with the stitching, especially with a nice pair of raw denims. I'm only saying that since I picked up a pair of the Addisons.

    I also think these look great. The styling keeps them from looking too rugged -- just a touch of class. I'm thinking about grabbing a pair in tan...

    And for those complaining about the wingtip style and stitching, these are straight from the archives. Not all work boots need to look the same and not all of them looked the same back in the day:

    And just to drive this point home, here's a (Montgomery Ward's, I think) catalog from the 1930's. Notice the wingtip workboot style.

    assuming these boots are weatherproofed for Montreal Weather, could i walk in them for 30 min in -20?

    I have a black pair of the 1,000 Mile Boot.

    The double stitching and the strange pattern that it has is a turn off.

    I really like these - but I'd like to see some pictures of boots in the actual flesh, so to speak, rather than the usual images from Wolverine or whoever is selling them. People who own them - post them pics, please!
