great, thanks for the info. yeah not easy down under for this type of stuff.
I take it the boots aren't tied when you do this? If that's the case it is not an indicator of whether or not you size down.
Sorry if this has been answered - but do the Krause boots fit the same as the original 1000 mile? How about the other boots in the line - Rockford, Addison, etc - do they fit the same as the original 1000 mile?
Anyone have any tips for getting small amounts of mold out of the boot leather? I just noticed a few small spots on the outside of one of the boots. I tried brushing off the spots real well but they come back again in a day or two.
Abit of alcohol wipes or vinegar, baking aoda solution should do the trick. I would treat them with abit of obenauf to prevent future outbreaks.
In fact, i would clean the entire boot with saddle soap first. Spots of mold is an indication that there is some kind of systemic fungal growth everywhere else, especially those that reoccur.. After cleaning dry them properly and treat them.
Brushing is good for dirt and stuff but not great for removing molds, fungus etc.
Interesting, Ive never seen mold growing on shoes. Like the typical greenish/grey food type of mold?
More like mildew. It happens all the time with damp horse tack if you put it away where there's no air circulation. We use a weak bleach water to kill it and then oil the hell out of it once it's dry.
Thanks for the suggestions guys. They basically look like white spots that recur. Although I do have some spots on the edges of lesser worn shoes that look like bread mold spots. The main problem is that I live in an old wet Seattle house. It's probably time to invest in a heavy duty dehumidifier.
I purchased a pair of 1000 mile boots from a department store. Before I wore them, I threw on a light coat of boot oil, let them dry, then walked around for a few hours on a nice day. When I got back, I noticed this:
Is this normal wear, or should I think about exchanging them for a different pair if I can? Will this significantly affect the life of the boot?
I purchased a pair of Red Wing Beckman boots, they are a size 11.5 and I am selling them on because they look a little long (a little like clown shoes) for me. The fit of the actual boot is quite boot, maybe has about 1/2 a cm in the heel.
So If i'm roughly an 11.5/ in the beckman, what size should I get in the Wolverine 1000 Mile boots?
Also what is the best colour for the boots, I like the Cordovan No.8 but I'm not sure whether to go for that or the brown.
Also anyone had experience getting revolve clothing to send to Australia? Am looking to take take advantage of the 30% discount.
Revolve's 30% discount cannot be applied to Wolverine items.
That crushes my hopes and dreams. Does anyone know how to get a pair of these in Australia at a better price?
I don't see anything odd about your boots at all. Brush them and get some of the leaching wax off of them.
You don't play with shoe sizes so they don't look like clown shoes. You buy the correct size and get over it or find something else. As far as color goes you pick the color that best suits you. I'm partial to light tans so that's the best color for me. Others would say black and that's not a color I would prefer at all.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure I know a place...... LOL! Try dialing 1-573-254-3311 or send Dave an email at cranescountrystore (at) gmail.com
Email Crane's - they'll look after you. Still gonna be an expensive pair of boots, but at least you know that Crane's will check them for quality and defects before they ship them off.
