The original 1000 Mile Boot from Wolverine. This pair is handmade in the USA to reflect the quality and craftsmanship found in the original Wolverines. The Cordovan No. 8 upper, from Chicago's Horween Company, breaks in over time and ages well. The Goodyear welt construction attaches the leather sole and Vibram heel. Waxed cotton laces, 4 eyelets, and 3 lace hooks.

Like other reviewers, I think I got a fake pair. My vendor was NAME BRAND WAREHOUSE. If they were factory seconds they should be advertised as such.
The genuine cordovan Wolverines are gorgeous; the color is a two-tone pull-up leather with an obvious richness to it. The boots I ordered were NOT cordovan pull-up leather - they were a flat brown. Not bad-looking, but very obviously not the same kind of leather (I compared to another pair bought at Nordstrom).
Also, the tongue was made from a super-rough leather, with faded printing that was impossible to read.
Finally, they shipped in a plain brown box. All Wolverine 1000 boots I've seen ship in an embossed burgundy box with a black cloth shoe bag.
After noticing the differences in packaging, I looked at the boot construction and notice remarkable differences in stitching. The sole on this pair of boots is cheaply sewn into the boot exterior and the stitching will wear away quickly. With the other boots I received, the stitching on the sole was inlaid so that extended wear would not degrade the stitching. The other noticeable difference was the interior texture behind the leather. From this seller, it was much more frayed and difficult to read the boot description on the interior of the tongue. The other pair of boots had a slightly lighter interior and much easier to read the boot description. And finally, the color and quality of the exterior leather is noticeably different.
The Internet-at-large recommends to size down 1/2 to a full size and I think that's baloney. I went down a full size on my first pair of 1000 Miles I bought in 2014 and it was a huge mistake - I never wore them because they were too small. And on cold days when you'd need a thicker sock? Forget about it. Even on a 1/2 size down, trying to wear a medium weight Darn Tough sock was pushing the limits on comfort. My advice is to ignore the roomy toe box (they're boots! it should be roomy!), and focus on heel-to-ball fit. Also, contrary to popular opinion, there absolutely should be a small amount of movement at the heel initially. Anyway, my sizing, for reference:
1000 Mile - 10
Brannock - 10
AE 65 Last (5th Aves, Strands, etc) - 10
Van's - 10/10.5
PF Flyers - 10.5
