    Courtland in brown. Three months of daily wear. Conditioned with Venetian Shoe cream, then applied two applications of Obenauf HLP using crane method.

    I recently got the krause in rust from AE. I spent a few weeks applying black saphir polish. I love the darker red i have now!

    I'm glad i ordered the 11.5. I usually wear 12C AEs, and i wear size 12 Irish setter boots, do i wasn't sure what to get. They seem to fit large IMO

    Also i toss in my cheap jos a bank shoe trees when I'm not wearing them, the large size fits well in the 11.5 (full trees)

    Maybe a noob question, but I just finished using the leather condition from 1000 mile set, is this enough before applying sno seal?
    Thank you.

    I'm sure this question gets asked all the time...is there a similar looking boot that can be had for cheaper?

    Actually I don't think your question has been asked before. In any case there probably is. Of course I'm not sure why anyone would really want to go that route.

    Chippewa boots are cheaper, USA made and good dependable quality

    I'll try and take some this week! I'm sure some people like the original red, but i prefer a dark Burgundy (especially on a boot)

    I wore my Wolverine 1K boots for the first time tonight. I bought them 3-4 months ago from Nordstrom and have been sitting in the closet since. They are a lot lighter than my Chippewas and Red Wings.

    Hi there,

    I am in the process of purchasing a pair of W1Ks, either in the rust, or cordovan no. 8 colour. While I've seen plenty of pics of the rust following wear and treatment, I haven't seen any pics of the cordovans following wear or treatment. Does anyone have the W1Ks in cordovan no. 8 and care to share some pics of them showing the patina following some wear and also before and after treatment? This would be much appreciated and help me figure out which colour to get.

    Thanks!

    Cold Iron, thanks a lot for taking time to explain this. This has definitely given me knowledge on how I should treat my boots. Thanks!!

    Such a great tutorial. I dont feel bad for quoting such a long post because I had trouble going back and finding it.
    Doing the same to my Addison's now and having a detailed post like Crane's helps alot.

    For those wondering, it appears that you also need 3 beers as well as snoseal, brush, hairdryer, etc :D
