Comfort
Classic look but some shoddy components - by , Oct 05, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
Overall a great, classic looking shoe, I have two main complaints with it. First, when I pulled to tighten my shoelaces the first time, the tongue harness (the thing you slip the laces under to keep the tongue in place) pulled right out from the tongue. This was a disappointing first impression and kind of a pain in the butt - you either have to know how to sew, or find a tailor or cobbler to fix it. Second, I found that my heel was rubbing almost immediately. Now to be fair I think that with nice, real leather boots, some amount of rubbing should be expected. But at $285 it's difficult to not return the shoes if you detect discomfort the first time wearing them - what if the rubbing and pain never really goes away? Guess what: you probably won't wear the shoes much unfortunately :(

i wore these for the first time walking all over mexico city. very comfortable and the high top is great for ankle protection, especially on the uneven sidewalks. bought the black pair first and ordering a brown pair asap.

Quality in the shoe material good, construction very abnormal and defective. - by , Sep 13, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
I wear a size 10.5 in Nikes, and many other shoes. I bought a size 10 since I read that these ran larger, but then had to size even smaller down to a 9.5. The right shoe was great, super comfy. The toe box is a bit narrow, and so is the middle, but it was not bad. The LEFT shoe was a whole other story. The outsole on the mid part of the shoe was tucked in a lot more. The leather met it and made the middle part of the shoe so narrow I could not actually get my whole foot on the sole, and parts of it is hanging off the side. Extremely uncomfortable. The insole is also curved a lot more inside because of this strange pinch. It looks like the spot where the leather meets the outsole is about .5" narrower than the right shoe. It's so apparent. Again, the brown color is not at all the same as the photos, and is more of a coffee. Not happy at all. These were going to be my first Wolverines, but the consistency and sizing is just too much. The return shipping took 2 weeks, so I'm just going to return these and find something else.

Very good sneaker - by , Sep 06, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
Looks great. Good construction. Nice materials. Foot bed is good but could fit a bit better for me compared to, say, conventional speakers. Weight is good. Sometimes these things are too heavy. But this one is fine. Sole is very good. Overall satisfied, but not awesome.

Exactly what I’d expected. - by , Aug 24, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I’m a first time customer of Wolverine and happened to see a feature on the 1000 mile original sneaker in the August edition of Men’s Journal. The colors immediately caught my eye. I then researched the company and their reviews and thought.... “I’m gonna order a pair.” And I’m not disappointed. I selected the Tan color and love it. And comfortable right out of the box. Looking forward to the Fall season so I can get more use out of them. Glad I decided to give the Wolverine company a shot. Don’t regret it. I’m sure I’ll be ordering more products from you in the future.

Sole is really tall, shoe size runs larger - by , Aug 24, 2018
3/ 5 Stars
I wasn't expecting the outsole to be so tall. I feel like the white totally dominates the shoe, and looks a bit comical in person. In photos it definitely doesn't look as bad. The shoe runs so big. I wear 10.5 in everything, but sized down to a 10, and it's still too big. The sole seems to be on securely, but there's a few imperfect spots where it bulges out when meeting the leather. For the price, I will return it.

Too small - by , Aug 15, 2018

Eyewear wolverine downs in my own boots and Dura shock work boots religiously I love them. I jumped at the chance to order the thousand mile sneakers but they are just cut way too small even take in the insert out it’s kind of tight.

The 1000 mile original sneaker has great features. - by , Aug 11, 2018

This shoe is the most comfortable shoe I have ever had right out f the box. The leather is soft and pliable, the fit is surprisingly right and the look is as good as I thought it would be. Now my wife wants a pair.

Gotta Try 'em - by , Aug 10, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
Pros: Just as luxurious as my other 1000 Mile Boots (All 6 Pair) Comfortable. A little snug at first but after a couple hours they will fit perfectly. The sizing is similar to the original, I wear an 8-1/2 in everything except my 1000 Mile collection which are all 8's. Cons: Not a Con to most but a little on the preppy side.
