    How durable is the leather bottom? Do I need to put some rubber on it if I wear them a lot or something?

    I topy'd mine for the wintertime (snow/slush isn't exactly leather sole friendly), basically a thin rubber sole applied over the leather one.

    If Wolverine did a 1000 Mile boot with a commando sole I'd be all over it.

    Any experience with the various Wolverine 1000 mile boots vs. Aldens in terms of sizing?

    Are they all on a Munson-like last, like the LL Bean Katahdin boots?

    That thin rubber sole sounds like a good idea...

    What about using that boot dressing for cowboy boots? I think its a glossy rubbery/silicone? Its for keeping the edges the same color?

    $30 investment to help the soles last. It's worth it.

    Just ordered a pair at Revolve. Got the 30% discount and free shipping. Can't wait to get them. It was a toss-up between the Wolverines and the JCrew version of the RW Beckman.

    What was the discount code? Cheers...

    first time shopper deal, just call customer service either during or after your order to get a one time discount of 30% off [some excluded brands)

    It's not going to be my frist time shopping there, more like 2nd time. Also I would have preferred avoid calling, since I'm in Australia. Time zone difference and all...

    What have you guys been using to maintain your boots? I've been using obenauf's cream every so often, but am wondering if there is something better that I could be using? Btw...these boots are fantastic. thanks

    They do that with the Wolverine 1000 mile boot? I really want those but didn't really wanna pay $325 for them, if I can get them with 30% off thats about the same price as the GTs.

    I just ordered this product (Montana Pitch Blend) from a NYC retailer (Leffot) today and they are showing it used on the 1000 mile boots - which I have. I am hesitant to use Obenauf's on these boots as the color is so nice, I am not taking any chances on their products (good though they are), since they do change the color on some shoes/boots/leathers.

    I will report back on this product soon.

    On the bottom of their guarantee is a list of brands that they carry who requested not to allow discounts. Wolverine isn't on the list, so I assume the first time buyer discount can apply on them. I called them yesterday, and they told me that after placing my order at regular price, just to e-mail or call them with the order number to ask for the 30% first time order discount and it will be applied retroactively to the order. Sounds like a great company.

    I've emailed Revolve and they are willing to apply the discount on my 2nd purchase. I've to agree, great company. Not to mention free international shipping over $100 orders. Now I have to decide which boots I will get Wolverine 1000 or Red Wing GT...

    ^^^ x2

    Revolve has pretty decent prices when you factor in their coupons and discounts. Too bad most of their stuff runs from 'meh' to 'suck'.

    Just picked up a pair in rust yesterday. In my experience, I went down one full size from my true size. The boot fits just about perfect, with a bit of extra room for thicker socks and wiggling toes.
