1. Leather is stiff and very thick. Feels durable but i am anticipating already a painful break in period.
2. It runs long but narrow. Im a size 8D based on the Brannock device, and this boots feels a bit tight. I bought an 8D and didnt opt for a half size down as recommended primarily because i always wear a thick socks. Boots like these are are unlined so having thick socks will give comfort. My advice is stick to your normal size. The extra room in the toe is something i expect in a workboot like this.
3. The color is awesome. I think this is a lot better than the shades offered in the 1k mile line.
4. The rubber vibram sole is very good. Feels sturdy and traction is above average. But i felt like the sole stitching looks like it was cheaply done
5. Build quality is not that impressive in my opinion. I own a Red Wing Blacksmith and a Red Wing Moc Toe 1907 and both were built like it can widthstand a bullet. I also own an England made 1460 Dr Martens boot, and build quality is far superior than this Wolverine. The Wolverine Kilometer boot is built as a fashion shoes so that is something to bear in mind. But also for the price i paid for it here in Amazon, i think it is still a very good deal.
Edit: After owning for about two months I am removing one star. Comfort is good and the overall look is very nice once broken in. The one star removal is for the heel stack. The stack goes from rubber to wood to rubber again. For both of my boots the bottom wood to rubber connection is not very crisp and seems to have the potential to cause some issues. In addition, one of the boots seems to have the two glued pieces of wood (two layers for the wood portion of the heel stack) slightly miss aligned. It may be no one will ever notice, but I would have appreciated it being perfect (who doesn't). I would still recommend the boot as having a good value (again at the sale price which I purchased at) for the look and overall performance.
- Nice and thick leather, with a lot of character to it
- As you can see in the photos, the creases become heavily marked. You could see this as either a pro or con, but I think it gives them a nice worn-in look and will likely fade some with more wear.
- Rubber soles are nice and I wouldn't hesitate to wear these in wet conditions.
- This is still day 1, but they were a lot more stiff than I expected. I still wouldn't call them comfortable, but I imagine they'll get there. I will follow up on this point as I break them in.
One, the soles are crap in slippery conditions. Yes, they say Vibram on them, but the rubber is hard with very little lugging for traction. While I don't want or expect soft rubber like on a pair of winter-specific snow boots (ie, Sorel), I still think one ought to be able to walk to work in the winter without a walking staff for stability. On the upside, the soles will last longer. Two, the footbed and insole are spartan. It's okay for me and my usage, but I don't think I'd love to put long miles on these.
Tl;dr --> great boots if you get them at a steep discount, but better options available if you're looking to pay full price.
It is definitely true that this is strong, durable leather and will take some breaking in. However, I didn't find them super uncomfortable out of the box. And with each wear they get better.
I'm extremely glad I bought these. By the way, in dress shoes I usually wear a size 10.5 (but in a few brands a 10). In Wolverine boots, a size 10 was definitely big enough. They have a large toe box so if you are between sizes, go with the lower size.
I have to say again how amazing these look. Very rugged and durable. I'm definitely impressed - best boots I have ever owned.
