    AE Dalton Vs. Wolverine 1000 Mile - Questions.

    I have yet to see the 1000 Mile shoes in person. I really like the versatility of the Dalton - can be dressed up slightly/dressed down slightly. However, I might be interested in a boot that is less busy then the Dalton. I really have taken a liking to some of the Wolverines, but can't tell if they're a little, um, chunky. I also find the walnut Dalton to be pretty veratile. Does anyone have any experience with the Wolverine in Tan? If so, how does the tan come across in person? Does anyone run sales for Wolverine seconds, like the AE shoebank runs sales for AE's?

    Thanks!

    Specifically, I'm interested in the

    The Dalton is a dress boot that can be dressed down, and the 1000mile is a work boot that cannot be dressed up. Some companies, which I can't think off the top of my head, sell Wolverine boots as a third party and have sales on them. I don't know about Wolverine seconds.

    thanks - it's helpful to hear them described that way.

    And the Dalton is useless as a work boot. Or boot in any functional sense of the word! More like a different style dress shoe. That screams sex.

    And the 1000 Mile is also useless as a workboot with its leather soul. I vastly prefer the Chippewa JC Crew exclusives. Rubber souls you can actually walk in. I think there's essentially no point in buying a leather-souled boot.

    I have the Chippewas and a pair of AE Bayfields. I wear the Chippewas daily in Minnesota. Haven't worn the Bayfields in a while. Paranoid about salt.

    Theoretically you could, but why not just buy a boot that already has one?

    Also, I normally don't like the search nazis, but this thread was from 2 days ago, and was still in the first page of the forum listing, so any amount of looking would've helped with your questions about sales:

    @mike: my main question was about overall comparison of 1000s and Dalton's. my throwaway question about sales was for 1000 seconds. That thread addresses a club Monaco sale for new (and presumably firsts) 1000s which have been sold out since yesterday anyway.

    Yes, you can have a cobbler glue a rubber half-sole on it (like a Topy or Vibram), but they may have trouble with it unless they know what they're doing. The usual glue they use doesn't do so well with oiled leather soles. My cobbler bitched at me (in a friendly way).

    They're different boots for different purposes. Don't try to make them fill the same niche because they won't. I have the J Crew x Chippewa boot and love it, still want a pair of the Dalton's.

    In other news, just gouged a little leather out of the Chippewa boot :'( Guess I really have no excuse to baby them now
