Hard Bottom Maintenance
Last summer I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots, and over the last 18 months, they’ve taken quite a beating. As with most boots made of good leather, they only get better with age and wear, the 1000 Miles are no exception. Also with wear comes the need for a new set of hard bottoms. I finally wore through the soles and in preparation of winter, I had them outfitted with new leather and a layer of vibram rubber to keep all the wet bits out – below is the finished product. If you’re looking to make your boots last, a layer of rubber is a sure fire way to go, just ask your nearest cobbler during your next visit. All my footwear maintenance (including the below) is taken care of by Caesars Shoe Repair.
