Dear all,
I consult this forum whenever I have a fashion question, and the debates are always helpful and fun. But this is my first post!
I am interested in buying a pair of the Wolverine 1000 Mile boots and I've narrowed it down to the Rockford 1000 Mile Cap-Toe and the Montgomery 1000 Mile boot. (links to pages below.) The latter is about $100 cheaper and I am assuming it is not American made. This is a big factor in my decision, but it's not a deal breaker.
Does anyone have any input on the major differences between the two, aside from the obvious but slight detailing? If you own either pair, what are your thoughts/regrets?
I teach college and want a boot that can go with jeans and khakis w/o looking like I just came from a work-site. I currently have a pair of Red Wings that are getting too worn out.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

All best,

Chris

I love mine so far. It the regular 1000 mile in Cordovan 8. The cap-toe in Brown D looks good also colour-wise. You might want to topy it later on when the sole form to your footing and wears a bit.
