store is drool worthy, photos won't do it justice but will be posted tomorrow anyway. Probably.
You're a lot better off just coming to NYC, store well be here at least six months, hopefully longer if it does well. Come see for yourself.

my girlfriend kept reminding me to close my mouth hehe
so i picked up my brand spanking new tan addisons (for FREE) and being as they were so incredibly nice there the manager/ sales president threw in a full 1000 mile shoe car kit and a super sweet 1000 mile keychain.
he also gave me a hint on the 744s- he wouldnt say but he made a "smoking cigar" motion. dark and rich brown?
sounds way too sweet
I picked up this pair today. They are very light...lighter than any other shoes/boots I own from the like of Red Wing, Alden, Tricker's, etc.
Not to interject but I had a concern pertaining to a new pair of the Wolverine 1000 mile Rockford. I have owned this pair for about a week now and have recently noticed two thin areas of leather, toward the heel of the boot (one on either boot), where the lower meets the upper. The thin areas are actually on the upper, just above the stitching. Is this a legitimate concern or nothing at all?... the two small areas have lighted in color slightly, I suppose from mild stretching/wear. I am afraid of overly stretching these areas to the point of weakness.
Can you take and upload photos so we can get a better idea of exactly what it looks like?
sorry photos aren't the greatest quality, taken on my phone, had a few beers, and was trying to mostly stay out of people's way while taking photos
actual vintage lasts from the wolverine factory
the ladies' boots don't get a lot of love on this forum (last night was actually the first time i'd seen them!) but i think they look pretty sweet
actual vintage timeclock from wolverine factory
and my 1k after a shine
Thanks for the pics.
the brown/tan wingtips in the first pic
The darker, thinner area on the right inside of the boot is the are of concern.
What does it look like from the outside? The darker area on the inside is just the track where the machine that joined those pieces of leather ran. It could easily be just some grease that was left on the machine. Does it feel noticeably thinner? The look from the outside will add some value to or reroute this diagnosis.
The area I had described was noticeably thin, which I observed while cleaning. The exterior was lightened slightly through wear; however, I have no experience with this style of boot. Not to diverge, but I have been wearing all leather cowboy boots for at least a decade. I have acquired an isolated knowledge of boots through boot makers that I have known personally. I have never known of a boot that utilizes such thin leather, but then again, I have only worn cowboy boots and ropers. Ideas please!
When I say thin I mean 2-3 mm thin btw
A question regarding the older Darby of the Gentleman line, clearly labeled as 1000 Mile: Where is it made?
I searched the whole thread but couldn't find any info on it.
I like the flatter toe of these. Though not so sure about the stitching.
And they're still available here:
People were talking about sales within the past two weeks, anyone know of any that are going on currently? Looking to grab a pair of plain browns.
