    I find the captoe of the 744 a bit.... weird. The toe box of the 1000 mile boot is too high to look good with captoe IMO. But my opinion may change seeing these boots on people's feet.

    Whoa,
    I guess that's a good price, but I'll save up the extra $ for the Aldens....[​IMG]

    yea the 9.5's are all sold out... I would pick those up (for $500) if they were my size cause my four 1000 miles are so comfy

    The toe box of the Wolverine 1Ks looks reinforced, i.e. celastic. I've read somewhere that someone had the celastic removed from one of his boots (I can't remember what boots they were, but not Wolverines) by a cobbler.
    Does anyone have experience with that? Do you think it would work with the Wolverine 1Ks?
    Is it an expensive procedure?

    For a lower toe profile. I don't know if that is possible with the design as it is.

    Perhaps this will change naturally over time.
    I found this pic on Sufu. The toe looks different there. But it might be because it's an early version of the 1000 Miles. Not sure.

    if you could let me know how much you have left after 'doing' a pair of boots with it, let me know. ie how many treatments you think you'll get out of each 4oz obernauf pot

    anyone else could answer this as well thx. .

    Wolverine have a handy store locator - http://www.wolverine.com/US/en-US/Static/Dealer.mvc.aspx. Note the checkboxes for the 1000 milers

    There looks to be one retailer in Columbus, OH - http://shoerepertoire.com/store/

    I used about a third of an 8oz pot for my double coat treatment, however I applied too liberally and ended up wiping a fair bit off.
    So, I think you'd squeeze about 2 double coat treatments from a 4oz pot ;)



    Thank you, the colour looks great.

    For folks looking for a deal, it looks like Bargain Outfitters is getting some more 2nds in this year. They have 1000 Mile in brown listed on their website in various sizes. They won't ship until early October. I know some jumped on them last year, with various results (regarding imperfections) but though some here might want to give it a try for 200 bucks.

    Now if only they'd get some of the last run of Rockfords...
