Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot Review 2.5 Years

Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots Review – 2.5 Years

The Vibram Lug half soles are ready for changing, so I’ll be replacing those in my next post. So far I estimate a total of 280 wears and 600 miles.   These […]

Wolverine 1000 Mile Review – 13 Months

It’s getting hot. Too hot for boots. But I still got some good runs in this month before the weather turned. So far I estimate a total of 175 wears and 310 total miles. This month included a road trip to Portland. Treading through forests in these makes me feel satisfyingly lumberjackish.   Switched over to the tan […]

Wolverine 1000 Mile Review – 12 Months

I’m excited about this. One year! So far I estimate a total of 165 wears and 290 total miles. When I glued on these half soles a year ago, I didn’t know what to expect. None of the blogs or forums I read inspired any confidence in DIY half soles. “You don’t have the tools necessary! You’ll […]

Time for another Allen Edmonds review. These are the Fifth Avenues in bourbon. So far I estimate a total of 25 wears and 45 total miles.

Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue Review – 1 Month

These babies turned 1 month old this week. About 15 wears, and 25 total miles. So far I really haven’t done much to care for them. I conditioned them after I glued on the half soles, and brushed them before these shots, but that’s about it. This is my first pair of quality dress shoes. […]
