Wolverine 1000s looking like new after applying Montana Pitch Blend Leather Dressing--the kind used in the Wolverine website videos.
I just got a pair of these from Orvis online. The back part of the heel on one of the boots has some questionable stitching. The stitching isn't loose at all, nor can I slide or otherwise move the leather, but it certainly doesn't look like it'll stay that way... Anyone else have this issue? Cause for concern?
edit - clarification
Return them. They are defective.
Yeah, those stitching holes look overly stretched. Exchange em.
I'd get Wolverine to replace them. Last I heard, they provided a return label for shipping.
I like this. this is the rust color right?
I'm exchanging them, thanks. Orvis provided a return label and is exchanging them dispite having been worn outside for a day.
... I think you've got a rat problem...
Your dog did that? I'm tempted to say it just "adds character".
I love our dog as much as the next guy...however...my shoes & boots are the boundary line which shall not be crossed. Fortunately, our one year old pooch, Brutus took to house-training and no-shoe-chewing training very well. He steals socks and slippers but somehow knows that shoes are off limits (currently knocking on wood as I type).
They look great. I'm in agreement that they tend to look best with a fresh coat of waterproofer/conditioner wax applied. I use Obenauf LP but Montana PB seems like it works just as well. These pics were taken after the summer hiatus. I'll have to snap some new ones with a coat of LP. They don't exactly *shine* but they do look sharp as your pics clearly show.
Mine just hit the one year mark.
Yeah, the damage was caused by my brother's dog. Luckily, he loves him, and that's just what some dogs do; so he blames himself for not putting it away.
At least it's not somewhere that's easily visible. I'd be pissed though.
