    i took them to emerald city shoe repair at 3rd and union downtown. j. gilbert recommended them.

    One more question: Did the cobbler glue, nail, or stitch the half-sole on?

    wow those look awesome

    Any idea how old those are?

    Those are deliberately placed grooves on the vamp rather than crease, no? I've never seen anything like that.

    These seem a bit less bulbous than the currently manufactured boots. I like it.

    They look fantastic. How long have you had them? How much do you wear them?

    I've had these for a couple of months, and have been wearing them 4-5 times a week. I try to stick some shoe trees in them every few days to help dry them out and keep the shape. I think I'll put some neatsfoot oil on them soon.

    And the vibram half soles are glued on.

    Anyone have any experience with the wide widths on these? I have a pair of red wing iron rangers in 12EE that fit and was wondering what size I should be looking at with the wolverines.

    If anyone is planning to buy a pair DEFINITELY go to Revolve. I got them in two days after the pre-order. $245 shipped which is the BEST price anywhere.

    For that price I assume Revolve are still doing the 30% discount ?

    Can this be confirmed before I pull the trigger.

    Thanks

    Kind of interested to see what these will go for:

    (not my auction - has interesting pics of dead stock 1000 mile boots)


    Thanks for posting. Great to see NOS items such as this. They styling is certainly more perfunctory than the modern revision, but it was after all a working boot.

    I'd assume that is a glued, stitched and nailed sole. Not many manufacturers make them like this anymore.

    It looks like one of the toes has been crushed or otherwise doesn't have the toebox.
    Kind of a bummer.
