    Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot review

    The coupon code SPRINGDEAL will reduce the sale price by 20%. For the person with the right shoe size, you can get some of these boots for under $200. I wish I had more than 2 feet, to help wear some of my shoes.

    Made In USA?

    Final assembly can mean almost nothing. Yet, it means everything. I have personally seen factories where they glue together a few pieces, or put a cover on with a few screws, and then label it as "Made In USA". The worst was actually watching workers sew on "Made In USA" labels on clothes...

    Made In USA?

    It used to be that something Made In USA was certain to be a quality item. Other countries as well. You wanted things Made In England, Germany, Italy, et cetera. We also used to frown on Made anywhere in Asia...... Taiwan, China, Japan, etc. Does it still matter to anyone? Nike and...

    Kitchen knives

    Hardware stores now have machines. Automated. No more worrying if the tech has good eyes or a steady hand.

    Kitchen knives

    What I remember was that in restaurants, and in homes, the Chinese knife was simply stuck in the wood block cutting board. A very popular chef wrote in one of his books, that you only needed a handful of knives. I have a lot of knives. The same way a plumber has wrenches. My tool...

    (KNIVES) Let's see some sharp pointy objects

    This is what happens when you have too many knives. What? Is there such "a thing" as too many knives? That's like having too many tools. Or too many pairs of boots. Or too many leather jackets. Produce such as oranges and avocados come in net bags. Hams come in net bags. Oysters come...

    Show us your SHOES !!!

    Over 55 years ago, when I was just a dishwasher in training, these set me back more than a day's wages. I was so poor back then, I rode my bike with a golf jacket.

    Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot review

    Here we are, after a few months of washing dishes at Panda Express. I've gotten my money's worth.

    Another pair at a big discount. Never pay full price for these boots. Only buy them on sale, and with a discount code.

    Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot review

    I think all 1000 Mile Boots are Goodyear welted. Some have a 270 degree welt. Some have a 360 degree welt.

    Opinions vary. We all have different feet. To me, a wide toe box is better than shoes that squish my toes together. I don't want my feet and toes wrapped up tight and bound. That leads to orthopedic problems. The Iron Sheik had the right idea. If I could, I would wear his boots.

    This is what the cap toe boots look like, in their natural habitat. The dishwashing station at Panda Express.

    Jim Green custom shop

    I took a trip to West Africa. The local Panda Express needed a highly trained dishwasher. I didn't get any special footwear. I just wore my regular issued duty boots - which would have been something from Bates, Rocky, Thorogood, Danner, or whichever company won the bid on the supply...

    I'm Courteney has a nice article on Forbes. And that little video provides a little insight on their factory, manufacturing, and company background. I like that they are providing employment to poor people. I won't be buying Courteney. I have no specific need for a safari shoe. The...

    I thought that those shoes were purpose specific. Specific to safari. Shoes for hikes through the jungle or forest. It's an outdoors shoe.
