    Well it just so happened that a pair of 1000 mile boots in my size ended up in the store. So now they are on my feet. The pair I now own is brown and they are very comfortable straight out of the box. Now I say this with some reservation because I'm used to very heavy work/hiking boots that take weeks to break in. If you're used to gym or dress shoes then wear them for a few hours a day for a week or so. Your feet will appreciate it.

    OK so I'm about a week into wearing these boots and where I live it's muck season. I'm not worried about the uppers. Horween Chomexcel is about as good as it gets when you're talking boot leather. Now the leather soles on the other hand is something I was a bit worried about. Not anymore. I've worn them in mud, sloshed through standing puddles and have walked through a few wet pastures. I also hiked/fished one of my favorite Crappie lakes all day last week to "test" these boots out. Yeah it's muck season for sure. The soles survived just fine and for that matter I didn't get wet feet either. One thing I won't do is stand in 2 inches of water for any length of time with these but that's just a common sense kind of thing.

    I don't see any particular reason to baby these boots and I'm certainly not going to. I'll run them through my usual boot care routine but other than that I am planning on wearing them in any condition the day throws my way. 1000 miles says Wolverine. We shall see about that.

    I'll update this thread with more test results and pics from time to time.

    yep many thanks to those mentioning the first time revolve discount. bought a pair of wrath arcane denim (my buddy's line) the other day and had no idea about the discount.. prolly smarter to use the discount on a bigger ticket item, but oh well.

    Does anyone own the brown boot? If so, does it have as much of a cherry hint to it as it does on the Wolverine site?

    Thanks!

    The pics on Revolve's site are really accurate:

    No, it has no cherry at all (so to speak).

    If they are the Wolverine Addison it's possible they are a reps sample. I saw the original 1000 mile boot months before the official release date.

    Yeah my money is on this. The color looks darker and redder/rustier than the tan shown in that promo photo that's been making the rounds. Can't say I'm into the wing design, though. Will probably pass on these, although it's so hard to pass on anything so close that's also made of Chromexcel.

    Are these sleek enough to wear with jeans/chinos with a slimmer leg opening?

    I don't have clown feet or anything, I'm a size 11, but I was just curious how they would look.

    I think they look just fine with a smaller leg opening jean. My widest leg opening with my denim is 7.5.

    They work just fine with slim straight leg jeans.

    Yea my RL vintage fit chinos measure about that, that's what I way trying to get a reference to. Thanks!

    I'm gonna go with the blacks and I already reserved a pair of the Addisons.

    Thanks for your help guys. Can anyone post pics of themselves wearing them? I've only seen pics of them on display.

    Roy Boot or Wolverine 1000 mile?

    Both Alden/Context Roy and the 1000 mile are plain toe boots in horween chromexcel. Different soles (Roy Boot has the crepe sole) and toe shapes. Anyone have experience with both? Which is the better boot?

    It would be great to see a side by side of these two.
