How to take care of leather shoes ( click to view)


  • The leather will crease on the top depending on use, foot size and shape of your feet
  • The leather has a waxy sheen, as if the final coat of wax/oil wasn’t fully buffed off which keeps the leather conditioned through storage and transit
  • This boots have a stacked heel, slight movement of the heel is expected for flexibility
  • This boots have leather soles. We do generally recommend a rubber outsole be put on the boots to prolong the life of the sole and to increase traction and to be more weather resistant.
  • This product is hand made, marks and scratches are natural characteristics of the product

Wolverine 1000 Mile Wolverine Original Rust Boot W05299 Colour: Russet

Unfortunately I was sent a faulty shoe - poor manufacturing - however Stuart's collected and replaced within 1 working day so overall a happy customer because, hey, shit happens.

Wolverine 1000 Mile Wolverine Original Rust Boot W05299 Colour: Russet

An incredibly comfortable pair of boots. I ordered a half size smaller than usual as suggested, and they fit like a glove. Over the following three days, I've clocked up just over ninety miles with no ill effects.

Like my RM Williams boots, they go well for any occasion, with the added benefit of not needing to be broken in.

The leather sole hasn't given any problems - unlike my Church shoes, which had me skating round for the first day.

I've been hankering after a pair of these for a while, and I'm glad I finally took the plunge.

Great quality boot

1000 Mile boots are great. Went down a half size. I'm US10.5E on Brannock and bought sz 10US in this boot. Break in is painless, just a bit tight but after that these will be perfect.

Awesome boots!

I love the Woverine's! Comfy straight out the box and broken in completely within two wears. The quality of materials and workmanship is top notch. The leather is amazingly supple and smells wonderful. The boots have been worn in all weathers and with proper care - conditioning, using shoe trees and being allowed to dry out fully - should last many years. Worth every penny in my opinion.

Hell yeah!

Another pair of 1000 miles to my collection, super soft premium quality leather boots. Can go wrong with these baby's!

Pure quality

I went a half size down on these beauties and the fit is spot on. What a lovely pair of boots. The moment I took them out of the box I knew that I had something premium in my hands - Absolute supreme craftsmanship.

a great boot that just keeps getting better

Fantastic simple classic looking boot. Leather ages incredibly, googling "horween chromexcel" will find you lots of information about the leather used - these boots will last up for years. Sized large so you might want to try a half size smaller than usual.
