    Just ordered the Montgomery for half price as 2nds from Sierra Trading Post. Fingers crossed for a pair that have only a negligible reason for being 2nds.

    This happened to me, called Wolverine customer service, they saw pictures and agreed it was more than usual. Told me to send 'em back to the seller (Crane's) and Crane sent me a new pair. After a bit, still had a tiny split, so went to a cobbler and they used a couple more nails to keep it down. Cobbler said wasn't a big deal, Wolverine just nailed the heel too far in. Still a tiny bit of separation (literally barely enough for a piece of paper) but all good now. I wouldn't worry too much.

    Sorry I haven't been able to read all the posts in this thread, but has anyone experienced this kind of issue with their boots? It seems like the coloring/leather on my shoe is rubbing off. Anyway to fix or remedy this? I've only had these boots for roughly 1 month.

    What are you doing to them to cause this?

    Trying to decide between my first pair of these, I can't decide if I want standard brown, rust or cordovan. Somebody want to sway me in any direction?

    I am a fan of the rust. It's also a little different shade of brown than the leather jacket I'm planning on getting relatively soonish (also brown), which is good because I don't want them to look too samey when worn together.

    I am not sure what happened to these boots, but I had a brand new 1st pair that was almost like that from the box - thats it, showing brown raw leather when its supposed to be black. They were sent back right away.

    Hello,

    I've decided to sell my boots since they are slightly too big and I can't get used to it. They went through 2 winters in the Czech Republic (tough ones), and are still in very good condition/shape.

    Only the sole is to be replaced. Being in the CZ I would preferably sell them to someone living within the UE.

    Please let me know or send me a private message if you are interested. Size is a 9,5.

    That is about the most red I have ever seen them! Every other pic is usually a dark wine purplish brown color.

    Added thin rubber sole for extra protection for the leather sole.

    Anyone have any good advice for cleaning and general maintenance of brown 1k's? Cleaned my boots the other day and then applied a coat of Red Wing Shoe Cream (Neutral) and wiped off the excess and buffed with a horse hair brush. Walking around today, the first wear since the cleaning and where the boot creases there is a pastie white film. Did I just not buff the shoe enough after cleaning our is this not a good product for conditioning these boots? Live in Canada and haven't found a retailer for Venetian shoe cream yet, but want to condition my boots.

    Montana Pitch Blend (using the hair dryer method) worked well for my brown 1K's...

    I did similar thing the night before yesterday before going to sleep. Apparently I did not wait for the wax to fully dry so it form the white pasties the following day. Just buff it off with some brush or cloth. I applied Chamberlain's Leather milk No. 3 for deep conditioning and waterproofing. And then applied Kiwi neutral colour carnauba wax for the shine which left the white pasties the next day. I just buff it off with a horsehair brush.

    Hello all. Long time reader, first time poster here...

    I just bought my first pair of 1000 Mile Boots at Nordstrom week ago (and yes, this thread and you all share a good part of the credit/blame for that :) ). They were perfectly comfortable right out of the box and I did have to drop a size from my AE Strands for fit. I'm very happy with them so far except I've noticed a defect I missed in the store and I'm not sure if I should return them because of it or not. Can I get an opinion or two?

    Thanks and nice to meet you all.

    It's just a scratch. I would not worry too much. I have the scratch on the side of the leather mid sole. And congratulations on getting a comfortable to wear boots and what nice smell they have.
